The email that you received from these accounts (mentioned above) have been signed among each other.
To authenticate our emails, you will need PGP software. We use the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG or GPG) to implement PGP.
You can download our GPG keys from the links above or use the following command example in a GNU/Linux CLI to download the key ID 0x7BD63126 (hello at vikings dot net) from a keyserver:
gpg --recv-keys 0x7BD63126
Vikings uses greylisting on its mail servers for certain mail address in order to reduce the amount of spam received.
Greylisting works by sending a temporary SMTP error the first time an email is received from an unknown sender. Any legitimate mail servers that receive this error will resend the email successfully. The bulk mailers used by spammers do not usually try to resend email that is returned and so the spam is blocked on the first and only attempt at delivery.
Legitimate emails to Vikings should not be affected by greylisting. However, if you have any problem sending email, please contact abuse at vikings dot net.
If you're not familiar with IRC, please keep in mind that while we're usually online 24/7, we're humans and may not see your question for some time.
Our offices and data center are located in the imperial city of Aachen, Germany.
