    I have been yelling at the NY Times because the news alerts and daily headlines I'm supposed to get with my online subscription had stopped coming to my in-box. I was checking the mail tagged as spam by spamassassin, and did not find any nytimes.com mail there, and also whitelisted *@nytimes.com and *@*.nytimes.com server-wide. Still no email from nytime -- yet they insist that on their end the mails are being sent out.

    So I just checked my maillog and found lines like this:

    May 19 05:03:53 admin relaylock: /var/qmail/bin/relaylock: mail from (content120c.lga2.nytimes.com)
    what does this mean? what I relaylock? why is some mail put in /var/qmail/vin/relaylock and how do I get my server to stop doing that? It seems really creepy that my server is somehow filtering my mail in ways I have not requested .... (sound of eerie music here)
