What’s up with that?

Due to this Office365 accounts is not available too (because it tries to redirect to getmailspring.com at the last step and recieves 403 error).

Hey @dananichev thanks for reaching out! I blocked getmailspring.com in Russia a few months ago because some sort of bot was sending millions of requests / day to the site (mostly asking for pages that didn’t exist, which is a neat way to bypass cloudflare since 404s aren’t cached by default). I’m not sure if the objective was to run up a bill or clone the site, etc. but it was running about $500/mo in data transfer!

I’ve disabled the geofiltering, thank you for reminding me to turn it back off. I’m hopeful that traffic won’t come back, but if it does I’ll find a more nuanced solution this time!

Thanks! You could move to CloudFlare. It is free and has DDOS/BOT protection (if needed).
