I've been programming since my early teens and like so many of us, I started Basic on the usual home computers like Atari 800XL, ZX Spectrum etc. "Turned pro" about 20 years ago.

I've been mostly doing C++ during this time, writing anything from device drivers for various operating systems to trading systems for banks.

Any specific reason why you are not getting your hosting company's tech support to sort out this issue, given that your problem was caused by them in the first place?

comment Keeping emails in Web app test environment from getting out
Ah, fair enough. Are you relaying out via a separate SMTP server or are you using local SMTP servers?

comment Keeping emails in Web app test environment from getting out
There's nothing to stop you from sending emails to somewhere that isn't the bit bucket. If you control the DNS, you can always point the 'outgoing' SMTP server at some mock server that allows you to verify you sent the emails correctly. Also, from your comment above I take it you don't have a permanent test environment set up? I would strongly urge you to do that, if you don't you open yourselves to all sorts of interesting, non-reproducable problems. I'd create a VM or a bunch of VMs that contain the correct setup so that the engineer only has to drop the new software into it.
