ALL AUSTRALIANS PLEASE READ

Recommended Posts

Mates-Currently we are unable to reach email addresses on many of the primary ISP's within Australia.Specifically optusnet.com.auThere are others, however- i'll try to compile a list here so that you can keep up to date...Apparently the have been government mandated IP blocking activities in order to provent some type of bank fraud being perpetrated on some servers based in the US. As a result, large swaths of IP addresses are being blocked, and legitimate email traffic cannot be accomplished either.If you are able, please open a free hotmail address or other non-charged account, (DISABLE THE SPAM FILTERS!) and forward your address to us so we can update your account and get you a download setup...Oh- and complain to your ISP.... I've made a half dozen calls to your country in the past 48 hours.... But one crazy guy calling from the USA isn't going to help... ;-)

Hey Robert,Optusnet has just implemented a spam filter that can be turned on by the account holder through the Optusnet home page. By having them turn that off should do it.Its a godsend for me because I get 80 spams a day and since I turned this filter on its down to 10 a day.It is now a Federal Offence in Australia for Australians to send Spam Emails to other Australian Email Accounts. Its a instant prisonable offence. Hooray!! But it doesn't stop the bulk email coming from the U.S. Its going to be a great day when the first gets prosecuted, what a precedence it will set!Kind Regards,

I contacted Optusnet here in Australia and have sent an E-mail to PMDG with their suggested fix. With a bit of luck we should be "flying" those 737-800/900's downunder shortly. Suggest anyone with similer problems with their ISP's do the same.

G'day Rob,Thanks for letting us know about the email problem, fortunately I had no difficulty in receiving your email and downloading the required file through my ISP.While I am here let me add my many thanks to you and your team for the excellent effort you've done in bringing to the flight sim community a set of aircraft that excels, you folks at PMDG have, since the first day that you arrived on the MSFS scene have shown professionalism in the way you go about things, and have shown me at least, that apart from the minor hiccup in the beginning you had the makings of creating superb aircraft, and indeed you do that, and I'm sure you will continue to do so in the future, and I for one wait with baited breath for the release of the "Queen Of The Skies", the probelm will be which one to fly, can't fly them both at same time, least I don't think so. :D

Things are progressing very slowly at the moment as I have been deployed on Operations for the last few months and am about to fly off to another exercise in a few weeks. We'll see how much I can get done in between Flying events. Additionally, I am about to get a Notebook with all the trimmings, so I'll be able to do stuff whilst I'm away ;-) I'll keep you updated John - By the way, fly your Qantas and Virgin repaints all the time!!! They are Great Mate!!!!Cheers,
