[afripv6-discuss] Another hurdle to v6 deployment

Hi SM,

Again though, that's a technical viewpoint.  We talk about convincing
managers to go v6 and propagating this up to the chain.  If the managers
know you are running spam blocklists on v4, and you tell em you're doing it
without those on v6, they get edgy and aren't gonna be inclined to it
happen.  This isn't a technical issue, it's one of perception within large

I have not seen any complaints about an increase in spam due to MX records
pointing to IPv6 hosts.  It's easy to test this and switch back if anyone
views it as a hurdle.  The suggestion would be to let the content filter do
what it is supposed to do.
