All dedicated servers have the outgoing SMTP traffic filtered (port 25). The SMTP filter will be removed at request and only if the bellow AUP rules will be implemented. The request is subject to our technical staff assessment.
All servers sending mail must use an IP address that has a valid reverse dns entry. The domain listed on the reverse dns entry must have a valid and active web page (it may not be a boilerplate type web page). The web page must contact valid contact information.

A maximum 10 emails per minute are allowed from one IP address, with a 10Mbyte maximum message size and a maximum of 10 recipients per message.
