Mail server of this forum configured incorrectly

Hello Wacom Forum Admins,

when I first tried to register for this forum, I was puzzled as to why the registration mails did not arrive. I had to use a very old mail address I still had from my university to get the registration working.

After some investigating, I found out that the mail server this forum uses is configured incorrectly:

Code: Select all

HELO: php-live.wacom.eu
Hostname: ec2-176-34-231-61.eu-west-1.compute.amazonaws.com


HELO and hostname differ, and this is regarded by many mail servers as a sign of spam emails.

So my advice to the admins of this forum is to correct this.

Also, I noticed that this forum does not use https, which seems a strangely outdated choice in 2018. Maybe you want to correct this as well, while you are at it.

Best regards!
