Special Announcement: charter/hotmail/msn/outlook Email Addresses Blocked from Receiving SKYWARN Announcement Emails

Hello to all…

This special announcement is being sent and posted on our website and social media feeds as well even though people with charter/hotmail/msn/outlook email addresses will not get this email directly. If you know a SKYWARN Spotter or Amateur Radio Operator who has a charter, hotmail, msn or outlook email address and are on the SKYWARN email list, please forward this message to them.

We are facing a problem where Microsoft is intentionally blocking all SKYWARN Announcement emails. This is despite our email administrator, N1XTB-Phil McNamara reaching out to Microsoft to have the block removal rejected. Our server and email list is not on any block list for spam and Phil insures email delivery is set to today’s IT standards but the server remains blocked by Microsoft.

For those affected, we recommend the following two items:
1.) Complain to Microsoft about this problem and tell them the following:
Allow traffic from IP:
the originating domain is oak.w1mv.org

2.) Subscribe an alternate email address as it may take considerable time to convince Microsoft to release the block off the email list.

If any Amateur Radio Operator or non-Amateur Radio Operator SKYWARN Spotter has contacts that might assist us in getting this block removed, please reach out to myself and N1XTB-Phil McNamara via email. Phil’s email is N1XTB@powersrvcs.com

We appreciate your patience on this issue and thanks to all of you for their support of the NWS Boston/Norton SKYWARN program!

Respectfully Submitted,

Robert Macedo (KD1CY)
