Since I started using GoDaddy to host email for this site, I’ve had several users report several times that mail they send me is being bounced with this message: “554 The message was rejected because it contains prohibited virus or spam content”. I struggled to understand it until I found several articles (here, here, and here, for starters) pointing out that GoDaddy is wrongly blocking mail if it contains links to perfectly legitimate sites. Obviously this is completely braindead.
As far as I know, I’m the first GoDaddy customer to complain publicly about this. This is probably because professionals in the world of hosting and web apps will usually not touch GoDaddy with a ten foot pole. I thought I’d give them a shot. It’s not looing good.
Let’s see if complaints from their own customers will make a difference. If you’re a GoDaddy customer, read the articles above, then write GoDaddy now to tell them how ridiculous their policy is. Other options for mail hosting are just a few clicks away.
