Telekom Malaysia Berhad (TM)
is taking immediate action to address this issue where effective 18 March 2008, TM will continue to block OUTBOUND Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) traffic or port 25 for all outgoing e-mails from dynamic IP addresses. Only Outbound SMTP traffic from smtp.streamyx.com and smtp.tm.net.my will be permitted. This second phase exercise will be done at another Klang Valley area before being implemented nationwide.

With this exercise, Streamyx customers with dynamic IP addresses, who have their own mail server, will not be able to send out-going e-mails. As an alternative, TM will be providing customers with two options Customers may choose to relay their server to our SMTP or use port 587 for any outgoing e-mails.
