[AusNOG] Issues receiving from TPG Mail servers.

@Michael - I agree that turning it off is the best way of solving it, the
issue is we don't have the servers forcing TLS, that's TPG.
@Mark - These are shared hosting servers, think cPanel & Plesk. The one
server is both mail, and website. Which means that the server has websites
that accept credit card payments, and therefore is subject to PCI. Any
system that is on that server is required to comply with PCI.
If the server was website only, then I'd agree 100% that it would be out of
scope for PCI, but since the same server runs both email and websites for
shared hosting customers, it is in scope.
We have zero issue with any other MTA, it is only these TPG MTA's that are
forcing both TLSv1.0 and an old cipher. If they either turned off TLS or
upgraded to TLSv1.2 they would be up to spec.
But we either have to make the decision to block TPG from being able to
send to the 100,000s of email accounts we have, or make it so that none of
our customers servers are PCI compliant. I'd rather speak to TPG and work
with them to fix the underlying problem.
