Verizon sunsets SMTP Relay Service

Filed under:

Odds are you weren't using this, but if you were, you were probably in for a little heartache and scrambling the last few days reconfiguring stuff. Verizon has shut down its SMTP Relay Service over the weekend, essentially a "plan B" outbound email server for cases where Verizon users wants to send email through their ISP's email accounts and were blocked from using the ISP's own server for one reason or another -- a fairly common practice. Thing is, the SMTP Relay Service dates back to a time when SMTP servers and free email accounts weren't a dime a dozen, so it kinda makes sense that Big Red would feel comfortable taking this beast offline right about now.
