Hi Chris & Michael,

Were the blocked emails returned with some sort of SPF message?

If so, I had a similar problem trying to send emails to Micheal back in
December.  And I sent him a follow-up email (from a completely different
account) describing the problem.  In fact, heres the relevant parts

  This is a Delivery Status Notification (DSN).
  I was unable to deliver your message to bugs.michael at gmx.net.
  I said
    RCPT TO:<bugs.michael at gmx.net>
  And they gave me the error;
    553 5.7.1 According to the domain's SPF record your host
    '' is not a designated sender.

If it helps, I can provide copies with the full headers, etc.
