Re: Microsoft/Hotmail/Outlook mail server blacklisting

No, this is a 'proper' VPS with a unique IP address, and the address that Microsoft have blocked is ours. A "proper" VPS using WHM/Cpanel for management can be configured the way I described. A VPS can have multiple IP's and/or domains, every VPS I have purchased has had at least two IP's and more ...

Re: Microsoft/Hotmail/Outlook mail server blacklisting

Are you self-hosted? Yes If this is WHM/Cpanel server the email may be going through the main IP which can be different than the domain IP. If that is the case make sure under email settings that Force from email address: is set to yes otherwise it's set to something like domainname@hostname.com. N...

Re: Change avatar from HTTP to HTTPS

My image Redirect extension (with a camo proxy) will also make externally hosted images and avatars appear secure.

I had a similar problem some time ago and started using Smpt2go - never had any problems since. It is free and only takes a few minutes to set up.
It is only free for up to 1000 emails/month, which is not enough for us, but their 1st paid tier is more expensive than our current VPS.

Microsoft/Hotmail/Outlook mail server blacklisting

My phpBB boards are hosted on a server which has had the same IP address for over a year. The postfix server on this machine ONLY sends phpBB generated emails and nothing else (99% notifications). We typically send 150 emails per day to Microsoft-related email addresses. Microsoft have recently bloc...

Re: Incomplete account creation

To tidy this topic up, we subsequently had a total database failre on our VPS. It turned out that our hosting company installed a security patch on the VPS host which caused disk corruption on the client VPS. Since repairing the file system and reloading the database, we have had not other issues, s...

Re: Incomplete account creation

got a plausible explanation for this? Possibly an auto registration bot script I can't rule that out, but the IP address and email addresses were plausible, and it does not explain how the registration was accepted with mandatory profile fields blank, and how the created accounts were not members o...

Incomplete account creation

I have noticed that someone has attempted to create a new account on our forum, but the created accounts (he tried twice) are incomplete. The accounts have no group memberships at all, and the profile fields that are mandatory on our forum are blank. I have subsequently tested the registration proce...

Re: Image orientation in plupload, using EXIF

Is it possible to explain what is required to manually replace the plupload component of phpBB to the newer version? I can see where at least one of the files that ships with plupload is located within phpbb (FORUM/assets/plupload/plupload.full.min.js - which shows I'm running v2.3.3]. Is that it? ...

Re: [3.2][BETA] Image Redirect

For the sake of discussion and enlightenment, Amigo, can you tell us what harm a MITM attack can do on an image link in a typical phpBB forum context? Remember that the browser has been told to render the link content as an image. Given the answer to that question, what action would you as a user ta...
