Various problems with Email forwarding...

   In the past I have done a lot of email forwarding where @some-domain 
messages would be forwarded to email addresses off of FLORA.  I have 
noticed an increase in the number of ISP's which can not be used as the 
destination for this type of email forwarding.

   - MAGMA  - Magma is using a filtering system which slows down the 
delivery of email from IP addresses that have delivered SPAM in the past. 
When forwarding is in place, any spam destined to you would be forwarded, 
and this would cause mail delivery for ALL Magma mailbox customers to be 

   - videotron.ca  - This situation is similar to Magma, where messages 
would queue up on my server and in many cases would be delayed the maximum 
5 days before a message is bounced back to the sender.

   - Rogers.com -- I am looking for confirmation, but it looks like they 
accept the message but do not make it available to be downloaded by their 
client (IE: messages don't end up in the inbox).  Rogers SPAM filtering 
may have the message stored in some other place that can be looked at, but 
those who have Rogers accounts have not yet found them.

   Longer term it is likely that I will simply not be offering email 
forwarding.  For those domains that I host I will offer POP mailboxes to 
temporarily store messages.
