Hosting companies, are there any good ones?

I started with netfirms.com $70 a month bought be a great hosting package on a shared server. Everything went fine then they started letting spammers make accounts and every days a new ISP would ban an IP address I would be using for spamming. It was not me spamming but since the IP address was shared I was punished for it.

I ask around and people tell me "go dedicated", fine I sign up to hostgator.com dedicated servers paying something like $250 per month. 'Perfect' I thought, no more mail issues.... seems like I was wrong. There server does not send to yahoo or hotmail. I contact support and they tell me that my IP address tried to send 500 emails to yahoo and hotmail all in the space of one hour and yahoo/hotmail cued them...... for two days now.

Is there a hosting package around that allows my forum to send those stupid automated messages 100, 200 even 1000 times an hour without being cured by yahoo/hotmail.

My older server you to send just as many and it never cued.

What the hell is going on here, is it possible that whenever somebody sends to may emails at once hotmail says "you are cued for 24 hours or more"?

I am sure somebody here with a large forum that has the thread subscription feature is sending more than 500 emails at once to yahoo and/or hotmail.

Any advice on what I should do at this point? I just moved to this sever on Friday and its is not working. I mean even if I was a low-life spammer I just changed the sites IP and its still not working. It is a new IP that I have never used before. Also I send emails from other servers using the same email address and they get through fine. It is specifically hostgator.com

The thing is it is happening only to this specific server. I have servers that send more that are working perfectly fine. This specific server get all its emails cued by hotmail for some reason. Hotmail is saying temporarily deferred.

temp defer can be caused by a few things, but thats a issue with your server being setup incorrectly for mail.

Very happy with ServInt. Even their VPS products rock.

Even a new dedicated server can have an IP that is blocked. Reason for this is that IP addresses are reused and if an old server (used by whoever) using that address was blocked for spamming then the new servers' IP will still be blocked.

- Check your mailserver logfiles
- Check if your DNS is setup correctly (also create a SPF record)
- Contact the mail providers to find out the real reason your mails get blocked.

Well I know from reading that Hostgator has had problems with mails and their IPs getting blocked but you really can't say until you get to another hosting. Just look at this post @ vB.com
