I've got a domain registered through Winhost with whois privacy enabled. Now I'm trying to transfer this domain away. I verified the contact emails in the whois record are correct, unlocked it, and initiated transfer from the other registrar. The other registrar (godaddy) sends me an email saying they must receive approval from the administrative contact, which they see as "email@example.com". That's not the address I see when I edit the whois record, that's some whois privacy proxy address. I'm not receiving any emails via that address from godaddy. So I sent a test email of my own to firstname.lastname@example.org and got an auto-response saying: So that's short circuiting godaddy's xfer machanics because the proxy address is effectively blocking emails. My real whois contact address never received godaddy's email or my test email. Godaddy says that if I'm not receiving the email, I need to contact my registrar and correct the contact email. But I don't see an option to eliminate the whois privacy in order to get that proxy address out of the way. Any suggestions?
