Namespace Mining - 7.Feb.2009 2:21:23 PM

We host out own Exchange server.  We recently have had issue sending emails to anyone associated with windows live email address.  I have been in contact with Windows Live domain support and they are reporting our IP is being tagged as a Namespace Miner.  One of the employees here does send out a mass email once a week and I can only assume that it is related to that.

What can I do to prevent the namespace mining from taking place? 

Any help or insight would be appreciated.

Thanks,

David

Outsource the bulk emailing or use a dedicated product to send out bulk emails on its own IP address. Exchange is a poor bulk email tool, and due to the way it works can make it look worse than it is.

This is the main reason why I tell people not to bulk email from Exchange - it reduces the chances of the IP address being blacklisted.

The only bulk email message is sent by one user once a week.  We are only being blocked by users that use a Windows Live account.  What ways can I send buld email instead?

I would outsource the task. Most of the major reputable outsourced orgs will have arrangements with the major email providers which will stop the messages being flagged as spam.
