lost in transit

As an added 'feature' to its services, my internet provider intercepts all outgoing emails and sends them using its own mail server. While this is quite helpful since I can send large attachments very quickly; the problem is that this is done through an open relay. It seems that the server was recently detected and blacklisted by spam tracking lists, making spam filters think my email is spam. I've stopped using the local relay server for now, but it seems lots of people haven't received emails that I sent out.

Noticed this while reading Nidhi's blog. I don't know whether this means that AdSense gave up trying to figure out exactly what NidhiT's writing about; but I must say the big G's got a good sense of humor.
