well, they're right.
internet would be so safe if no one would use admin rights - much more
better: no one should use computers at all.
no computer = no internet = no spam = no cybercrime = no
anyway, things will change in release 8 or 9 ;-)

We've found a flaw in the Checkpoint SecureClient NGX, which makes it a
Does anyone on this list have a direct contact to Checkpoint Quality Control, so
I don't have to go the long and hard way of explaining the flaw to 10 different
people at our reseller...? If yes, tell them to contact me offlist, please.

As i know trough my contact with AOL last week, they don't have any
public list that can be queried for blacklisted IPs.
If you wanna know, if a particular IP is listed, send a mail to:
If you receive the 554 Error Message, then your IP is listed. You can
also use telnet to check if your IP is listed:
telnet to postmaster.aol.com and try to manually send a mail.
But hey, the best thing you can do is to call AOL Postmaster service:
Enjoy the nice "Roboter" voices from the operators.... ;-)
PS: I can reccomend also to use the Feedback Loop Tool from AOL, where
you can receive complaints about Spam of your defined IP Range:

Any help appreciated.

adding the letter "œ" to the range of characters permitted in domain
names ending in .ch and .li."

(cf. http://www.ibt.ca/images/AZERTY_1.jpg). And it's also not on our
swiss-french/german keyboards. So *who* will use that? :)
(ok, it's also the case for many of the others chars listed under
Just wondering: who from the "internet community" asked for that?
I guess this person is probably be around on Swinog list, so he/she
could explain us ... :-) And what if the "internet community" were
asking for cheaper .ch/.li domains (for example for Fr. 10.-/year) or
to remove the "minimum length three characters" limitation? :)
