My outbound email is being blocked

Answered

My email was rejected by the big pond server as a spam message, all it contained were 4 url's. These were for torrent sites, what I want to know is why is big pond inspecting emails for content.  Anyone else had this problem.

Big brother is out there!! All automated but logged. Torrent normally means illegal activities.

Is it only that emails you're having trouble with or all? It might be as simple as turning off the router for a bit to grab a new IP or if you think it's the torrent addy remove the http and the .com and see it works.

Cheers,
Dave

Re: My outbound email is being blocked

Thanks Caaf for the reply, the only email blocked was the one with the torrent url's from about 10 emails with different url's I sent. Removed the HTTP and the email went through. It's a bit rude of bigpond to be doing this without letting people know. I think from now on I'll encrypt them.
