emails to verizon wireles (vtext.com) being refused beacuse of spam filter put in place friday

Since Friday at 5 pm Verizon has started using a spam filter that is refusing emails/pages I am send to verizon wireless users (9999999999@vtext.com). I have my sendmail.cf file setup with masquerade of --

Suggest you re-try it. I was able to send e-mail to cell via vtext.com w/o issue (other than slow.....like 10 minutes transit time)

the above says it timed out, not sure how you got to "spam filter" from there

Verizon said they added spam filtering and it is a nationwide issue. When I attempt to go to verizonwireless website and send a text message from the website it now asks us to enter a security code.

the security code on the website *shouldn't* impact your ability to send text msg via e-mail.

as I noted above, I'm still able to send messages from office to cell phones via vtext.com w/o issue other than slowness (at least as of today)

Have they identified the problem or have a resolution for it?

no they have not corrected or found a go-around. In the meantime if I relay through my exchange server, it works

In the past I have always Smart Relayed off of our official Exchange server.

Most paging servers will attempt to reverse lookup the "From" address. If you masquarade your "From" address is still probably a non-world DNS entry.
