MTA Server Situation

Currently the MTA server is undergoing network maintenance with the host, as provided as a response from one of the support representatives:

Hello,

As explained in a separate ticket, we did an huge improvement to block malicious traffic targeting your server.

However, one of our main providers is at this moment experiencing an issue with traffic scrubbing that can affect some non-standard ports.

As you can see in this partial capture on our providers side, you are getting multiple attacks towards your IP address:

2016-02-20 21:42:49 UDP 216.210.81.222 53 4444 1500 60004

On BlazingFast side we already tuned our protection to give you the best service, however due to attacks targetting your server and MTA traffic our provider is making changes to filter the malicious traffic without causing issues to your MTA port. The ETA we have from them is to have this issue fixed until Monday, however it can be fixed before.

As the issue you are experiencing right now is being caused by our provider we are waiting for an update and we are sorry we cannot do anything to improve protection. We could only help if you were getting too much bandwidth, however it seems at the moment our provider is scrubbing your traffic "too much" and that seems to be the issue. We will need to wait for an update from their side. Thank you for your understanding.

As stated, Monday is their deadline but they may finish faster than that. We are of course hoping for that and appreciate your patience :)

Seems like people just want to get in the way of progress.
