Looking for a part-time contractor..


I hope this is an ok place to post this - the people on this list have a unique skill-set and world view that is exactly in synch with that for which we are looking. :slight_smile:

We're looking for someone for some very limited (in terms of hours) part-time contract work..but ongoing, regular work… the person needs to have a keen sense of "why did this email fail delivery" and/or "why is this email going to the junk folder" and "why did this email end up blacklisted" (this is for email sent by white hat senders, or at very least senders who are trying to be white hat - *not* for black hat stuff).

So, basically, someone who, when shown an email (full headers, etc.) their first thought would be to check whether authentication was set up properly, is rDNS set up properly, what does the content look like, what are the IPs of the various hops and are any of them blacklisted, etc. etc..

If anyone here has that background/skill set and might be interested in, say, 5 to 10 hours a week extra work (remote, time of day not important so long as they are available most days, so ideal for picking up some extra cash after $DAYJOB), please let me know offlist. Please also feel free to send this to anyone you think might be a good fit, so long as you'd be willing to vouch for them.

Hi Anne,

I've been troubleshooting email since supporting Worldtalk's X.400 gateway in the 1990s. Since then, I've been a professional SMTP and LDAP consultant. My current clients are AT&T, The Gap, and SKHMS. I have just barely 5-10 hours a week but since I've been looking for a house to buy here in California since March, the prices have increased by 10% and upwards, so I'm kind of motivated to work extra right now.

The thing though is you might find someone cheaper than me. I'll quote you $150/hour for this work right now.

Many thanks!


Count me in at $149.95/hr. :wink: </humor>


The email address you're sending from is for a service that does what
you're asking for, and your signature lists you as the CEO, so I guess all
I can say is, in the words of Bob: "What would ya say... ya do here?"


We need someone to help with some overflow. :slight_smile:

Dictated on my phone, apologies for any tupos.
