A regular correspondent has recently had her emails to me (her ISP is Hughes.net)bounce back as undeliverable. Then another hughes subscriber had his email to me bounce back. Juno, my ISP, tells me that mail from the IP had triggered the limits imposed by Juno's spam-filters and was consequently blocked. As far as I can figure out, the IP address is assigned to Network Solutions and not individually to either of the people who experienced the bounce-back. Is Network Solutions in the business of web hosting.... I'm not even sure what "web hosting" means so must display my ignorance here and ask if Network Solutions could possibly be web hosts for hughes.net. An in-the-know friend says that maybe a lot of spam has recently been generated by hughes subscribers and that is why Juno blocked it from coming in to me. (The block on my correspondents' e-mail was just lifted, BTW). Could someone please explain if and how the web host fits into this scenario and if my in-the-know friend's theory makes sense? Thank you!
