[osgeo4w-dev] NOTICE: Hotmail and Live account email is bounced

Hi Folks,

I'm sorry to report that Microsoft Hotmail and Live have banned many if 
not all Osgeo mailing lists. The reason cited includes /"Emails rejected 
by Outlook for policy reasons. A block has been placed against your IP 
address because we have received complaints concerning emails coming 
from that IP address"/.

The Osgeo sys admins are aware of the issue and seeing what can be done 
to get us removed from the block, but I've no idea how long that will 
take, or even if it will be successful.

On our end, after Mailman receives too many notices of failed messages 
that email address is placed on a "no mail" list. So, even if/when the 
mixup with Microsoft is fixed those accounts will still not receive mail 
until that  `nomail` flag is changed.

Users can change their email address their subscriber options page, 
http://lists.osgeo.org/mailman/options/osgeo4w-dev. (The nomail flag can 
also be reset here.)

I will email this notice directly to those users who I know are 
affected, but don't know if that will cover everyone.

best regards,
