    I am not an e-mail guru, but my ISP has asked me to do a "verbose" email message to another ISP, so that I can track the site that hosts their e-mail. I need to see if they are blocking my domain.

    I am not sure if I know what he means by sending a "verbose" email message. The ISP is extremely busy and does not have time to school me on how to send a verbose e-mail message.

    I am sure it is fairly simple, but with no background, I am stumped.

    Thanks in advance.

    I am guessing that they mean don't send an e-mail with no text or very little text in the body. If nothing else, copy and paste your first post in this thread into the body of the test e-mail.

    I did something almost as good. My mail server does not work like most, so I sent an e-mail to the site with a very strange address or at least one that I thought would not exist. Then I watched the logs in my e-mail server. Low and behold, it did show me the server that was doing the hosting. However, I could not find out much on their home page when I went their to see if they had any spam lists or bandwidth lists as suggested by my ISP. At least I know who is filtering their e-mail and hosting their e-mail now. Thanks for the help.,
