Is Verizon's Anti-Spam Plan To Block All Foreign Email?
from the seems-a-bit...-extreme dept
Apparently Verizon is fed up with spam hitting their network, and someone has tuned their spam filters to what might be called an "aggressive" level. The problem, for many people, is that there's no option for the end user, who either has to take it, or find a new service provider. The biggest complaint, so far, seems to be that many foreign emails are automatically blocked -- meaning that friends and relatives cannot contact each other, and even some companies have found that co-workers can't email each other. While it's nice to see Verizon trying to do something, this seems like overkill. Any spam system should at least allow users the option of reviewing the blocked mail and designating which ones are legitimate.
