Re: Live Server Stats

Hi,

Due to personal stuff I've had to get rid of my servers ... I've attached the latest version of HML incase anyone is still interested.

Will hopefully get back online in a couple of months, but till then, I've got no servers with fixed IPs.

Cheers

Re: zen.spamhaus error

In your setup, you probably have 127.0.0.* set up.
yep!
The problem is that there's no easy way to specify 127.0.0.1->8, 10-11 in hMailServer. I'm in the middle of creating a new 5.3.2-version where it's possible to do this (127.0.0.1-8|127.0.1.10-11).
