We have some servers for our clients and ovh suspend permanently these vps with 1 or 2 warnings, we haven't faced such issues from none of the providers but ovh. They didn't give the time to recover the data.

    I wonder if I should one day try it.

    It's the big hype these days.

    Then again, all I will probably be doing is using a program that I don't understand which sort of sucks.

    And justice will come upon the scammers like a strike from a Hammer.

  • Actually, spammming is an issue in all vps and all datacenters are facing this issue but ovh dont give time to revise the issue and they just simply terminate the vps

    how ridiculous

  • deankdeank Member

    For OVH, customers are just numbers and they certainly won't care even if they get rid of problematic ones. They'd rather not spend the manpower (therefore, wage) on things.

    Not sure what actually happened to you, but if spamming happened and led to loss, were you willing to compensate all cost? I recalled seeing providers asking hundreds of dollars for the man-power to negotiate with all kinds of spammer list and get their IP unblocked, not to mention that in some case these IPs will leave permanent reputation lost that even money doesn't help.

    So in short, you were caught sending out spam?

    If your machines get terminated due to spam, it means, you ignored multiple warning, or you did something utterly stupid.

    You cancelled the order? Or Kimsufi cancelled for u. As I recall, recently, they had a discount like 10euro pre tax.

    You got "1 or 2" warnings... what did you expect them to do if you don't react properly.

  • WebProjectWebProject Member, Provider

    The moderators need to rename the topic to: I tried to SPAM and OVH suspended my account.

    What do you expect? You just ignored their warnings and I bet you it’s more than two you had!

    Some providers are afraid to put some balls behind their policies. I'm sure OVH is the largest provider you've dealt with while some smaller providers might look the other way on spammers because the little bit of money you pay monthly covers morning coffee for the one man hosting provider.

    @techiwizard Them, not allowing you to further abuse their system, is the ultimate discrimination and breach of human rights.

    You should open a case in the European Court of Justice.

  • so you were spamming! and waiting for OVH to request you, "Hello Sir, Can you please stop sending spam? it is destroying our 'so-called' reputation!". Seriously, spamming, WHY?

  • We are not spamming, got some mails regarding spam emails but its common and we have already taken action against the customers who have done this but i don't think none of the providers do like this.

    may be ovh have enough customers but atleast they should allow to migrate the contents

    Some SPAMer thinks that the following description is not SPAM:
    - we don’t send SPAM emails just emails;
    - promotional emails;
    - marketing emails;
    - communication in bulk emails like 10-100k emails per time;
    Any other fancy descriptions of SPAM?

    Well obviously use a host like Ecatel/Novogara or a host that will forward you abuse complaints and you will get to deal with them yourself.

    Obviously the above isn't necessary illegal but don't be a dick and spam shit

    Yeah, sure he could do that and not give any fuck whatsoever until the next millenium hits but then i wouldn't be suprised if that doesn't quiete yield the deliverability he is looking for. I mean seriously is there anyone who sees traffic from Ecatel, Quasi and friends and does not instantly think DROP?

    I actually do feel your pain. My incoming backup relays were there, meaning they received email and relayed the mail back to my primary server. They intercept mail traffic and scan it, leaving me with two options. Either I filter the mail with 0% failure or leave, because they'll block SMTP automatically. Despite zero risk with me, obviously. So I'm leaving OVH completely.

  • On the first day of work in this New Year, I was greeted by a bunch of spam in my email. This is unusual as I run greylisting and have spamassassin dialed in pretty well. So I decided to start my day off looking at the headers and using IP whois. Every spam email was from a .bid domain from an IP owned by OVH. I forwarded every spam email to [email protected] I never got a response, but although I can empathize with your problem as a provider, I am glad OVH is doing something about the spam. In the past, I complained many times to CC without effect.

    I've sent some rather (relatively) large email campaigns from OVH VPS's, not once have I been suspended.

    The only way you'll be suspended, is if OVH manually confirms that you've sent spam.

    And given that he got 2 warnings for it, I suppose he didn't change a thing between then and the final booting.

  • Kinda glad too OVH is cleaning up because OVH will be the source of the spam or the webserver IP of the spammed URLs in the email. Maybe they were getting threats from Spamhaus.

    Maybe but they'll definitely block SMTP at least without anything more than automation tied in with vade retro.

    @Aidan They automatically block IPs that [is sending mail with a] high spam scores, if the spam score is low you can send all you want. If someone reports mail spam that's when they manually check. I've send tens of thousands of e-mails on OVH and never had an automatic block.

    Edit: Before I trigger anyone, this isn't me defending their spam blocking system or whatever, just saying how it works.

    I think they don't allow spam, dos and similar.

    Which content is not allowed on my server(s)?
    Novogara does not allow anything (related) to the following content:
    
    - Spam
    - Malware
    - Phishing
    - Ddos
    - Childporn

    Nobody can really advertise they are breaking the law, except someone who is proud of it, but will not last long in this world. They will be nullrouted if not worse.

  • Clouvider said: Oh, there are people on this very forum that are sadly go to for that, and proud of it too.

    Exactly my point, some people can be proud of braking the law, we have an illustrious example here, however, that does not mean they will last long. People who do that have a serious problem elsewhere, if the arm of the law wont catch up with them, they will do something else even more stupid, eventually.

    I personally think that just banning spammers is way too soft. Actually they should be shot. First, say in their leg, as a serious warning.

    Spammers are among the worst of scum and create billions in damage and they should be held liable and the punishment should be hard enough to make spamming very unattractive.
