A Message From The President

December 6, 2018                       Volume 6 No. 148
The Steady evolution of the .NG Registry

The steady uptake of .ng domains is predicated on a very stable and well managed Registry. There is no doubt that while we need to preserve the old order, we must also allow a steady evolution of the .ng country code Top Level Domain (ccTLD), so that it can meet the wishes and aspirations of its stakeholders.
Members of NIRA are in the process of implementing various changes to the Constitution of the Association, in a manner decided by the members, using the bottom-up process consensus building process.
An Electronic General Meeting of the association is ongoing. It started on Saturday 1st December 2018, and will end on Thursday 13th December 2018, with votes to ratify the draft constitution. Indeed, members will vote electronically in secret, over a three day period. 



Why an email may not get delivered
The average person checks their mailbox every fifteen times in a day.
For most if not all, the first thing we do at work, is to check our mailbox and it is the last thing we do at close of work. It could be a frustrating day when our mail don’t get sent or delivered or we don’t receive the mail sent to us.
There are several reasons why an email may never get delivered to a mailbox. When an email is sent and a failed delivery message is received, several reasons can be attributed to this situation.
These can be:
  • Mailbox is over its allocated quota
  • The mail server being unresponsive
  • Virus was attached to message and virus scanner redirected the email
  • Authentication issues (the most common).
  • Network issues.
  • Blocked IP addresses (Customers IP address may be blacklisted).
  • SpamAssassin settings too strict (email spam filter).
  • Spammer (or more likely a compromised email account)
  • Misconfigured settings
