  • Bulk emails being bounced for "policy reasons"

    FWIW, the following domains are rejecting project Bulk Emails being sent out citing "_Message_not_accepted_for_policy_reasons" as the cause.

    bellsouth.net, pacbell.net, yahoo.co.uk, swbell.net, att.net

    Obviously they're considered spam.

    Not necessarily. There is another possible reason:

    I think that FTDNA tries to make the bulk email look like it came from the project administrator. This is so that any bouncebacks will come back to the administrator. However, some domains might consider this a deception and refuse to transmit the email.

    I don't know this for certain, but I think it's a possibility. I have heard that mailing lists are having the same problem.

      This is probably occurring as a result of application of "Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance" policy.

      You can read about that here:
