Re: No longer getting post notifications via email

The messages are being sent by a mail server in the c2.dal.innoscale.net domain, but adding the Penguinblog.com in the FROM header. The FROM header is what mail clients like Outlook use to show who the message was from, which is what spoofers use to trick people all the time. The MAILFROM header is ...

Re: Microsoft: If you're on Windows 10 version 1803, you'll be automatically upgraded

+1 on the 1903 stability. I've done about 20+ in-place upgrades and a handful of fresh 1903's and haven't had a single issue.

Thanks, Darcy. You can delete that header info if you want (you left your email address in there in a few spots)...I got what I needed.

Re: No longer getting post notifications via email

My bet is that the sending email system is not authorized to send as the pcabusers.org domain (if that's the domain it's trying to send from?). The domain's SPF record is: v=spf1 a mx ip4:208.65.200.160 ?all If that IP is not the current SMTP server's source IP, then that's why the messages are bein...

I didn't try subtitles, in ...

Re: VPN recommendations

I use my Edgerouter X for VPN. It's a basic L2TP IPSec VPN. My home upload is only 20Mbps, so performance isn't awesome, but it gets the job done for browsing and checking the home security cams while traveling.
