Hi all,

In 48 hours, i'll be blacklisting the entire of free.fr from KDE email
infrastructure. This is necessary as it has become apparent that the
security of @free.fr addresses is quite poor - allowing for
subscribers accounts to be targeted, hacked, and then used to abuse
KDE infrastructure.

Please note that this is not the fault of the people using @free.fr
addresses - despite multiple attempts to use different passwords, etc.
their accounts continue to be breached and customer service is
completely unresponsive to complaints surrounding this issue.

If anyone has any queries regarding this, please let us know.

If someone from free.fr technical support wishes to contact Sysadmin
to discuss this they are welcome to do so (email: sysadmin at kde.org),
but all communication MUST be in English. In particular, communication
in French is NOT possible.

Ben Cooksley
KDE Sysadmin
