WebMail Outbound: Gmail blacklisting

We have temporarily been blacklisted from sending email through the RocketHost WebMail to Gmail due to previous abuse of our public SMTP relays.

We are in process of resolving this issue however all outbound email to Gmail email addresses sent from the RocketHost WebMail are currently being blocked.

We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused by this issue and have noted this as a high priority issue to be resolved.

Outbound Email Delays

We have instituted a new email policy with all outbound relayed email.

If you are currently using mail.yourdomain.extension as the outgoing server in your web client then you would have recently noticed that this is no longer working. Please rather use the outgoing SMTP address provided by your internet provider. If you are unsure as to what the SMTP address should be, please look below at the list of addresses based on the internet connection provider:
