Whacked by spam filters

Today I received an e-mail from someone in Australia, interested in working with me on a writing project. I don't have time to participate, but my attempts to reply to say that have all failed, because the writer's Internet provider, BigPond, seems to reject almost all e-mail from my part of the world as potential spam—messages sent from the office I'm at, through Telus (my ISP), and even via three different webmail interfaces (including Apple's .mac webmail, based in California), all fail with "relaying from your Internet Protocol address not allowed."

So I'm posting the message here: John, I can't do the work for you, but the Editors' Association Hotline might be able to help.

One more reason to hate spam.
