What problem? They filter ICMP requests, so traceroute doesn't work.
That's not really a problem.


Actually, traceroute uses UDP probe packets by default and more and more
hosts filter them out. I have a workaround for that:


traceroute -I risingstarmbc.com

This uses ICMP Echo packets instead, which are more likely to get
through. However, you either need to be root for that, or SUID on /bin
/traceroute, which is what I did because I'm the only person using this
machine; I'd not do it on a production box just on general principles.
In fact, I have an alias for it in .bashrc:


alias tracert=traceroute -I

which works fine. (On a production box, I'd put the alias in root's
.bashrc and use su -c to invoke it.)

FWIW, I rarely use "traceroute" these days since many routers now filter ICMP messages. Since the site being talked about is risingstarmbc.com and since the word "email" was used in the OP's message and since host returns....

[egreshko@meimei ~]$ host risingstarmbc.com
risingstarmbc.com has address 204.10.137.200
risingstarmbc.com mail is handled by 20 mx11.hostrack.net.
risingstarmbc.com mail is handled by 20 mx12.hostrack.net.risingstarmbc.com.
risingstarmbc.com mail is handled by 20 mx13.hostrack.net.
risingstarmbc.com mail is handled by 30 risingstarmbc.com.

I use tcptraceroute to check and get....

[egreshko@meimei ~]$ sudo tcptraceroute -n mx13.hostrack.net 25

Same is true for all the MX hosts as well as (using the appropriate ports) for pop.risingstarmbc.com and imap.risingstarmbc.com.

sure, use dig to find the ip addr of the MX server for your targeted domain.
next ping the ip, get it?
next try to connect to mail port, eg, telnet IPADDR 25, get a connect?

make sense?

traceroute output is meaningless in this context.



explain what you mean by "unable to connect to this email address".

It's only the telnet client that you'd use to test services, that's a
simple installation. It's the telnet server that's a very bad idea (*)
to have on a system.

* There's no encryption over a telnet link, so logon credentials can be
seen by anybody snooping the network. To use a telnet server, you log
into it, so username and password are going to be sent unencrypted. But
a telnet client can be used to test various servers that you don't log
into, so it's safe to use as long as you think about what you send.
