    Spamcop blocks Major Belgian ISP

    Belgacom is one of the two major ISP and telephone companies in Belgium. For many years I have used its services, and have done so without any problems. Only since very very recently, I am having this email issue with spamcop. I see no reason to change providers ("If it ain't broken, don't fix it", as the saying goes). Ripe.net result clearly shows: -snip- inetnum: 195.238.0.0 - 195.238.31.255 netname: SKYNET-B descr: Belgacom SA/NV descr: Internet access provider country: BE -snap- 195.238.4.49 is not _my_ IP address. Belgacom is my ISP, though. I have informed my ISP about the issue. I am waiting for their answer.

    Spamcop blocks Major Belgian ISP

    That means that I am sending spam. I can assure you in all honesty that I am doing no such thing. You must be mistaking the MacOS with the M$ OS. But this is beyond the range of this messageboard, so I will not get into that. If I sound like I was ranting, then I apologize. I "only" feel victimized, because my friend does not receive my emails that I sent to her. We have been friends for years, but my emails to her are being blocked only since very recently. I am not an IT specialist, just an experienced amateur when it comes to computers (wo wonders why this quote-thingie does not work here), and someone with too much honesty to just do nothing when my emails are blocked unjustly.

    Spamcop blocks Major Belgian ISP

    Content of my blocked e-mails: ******************************* Query bl.spamcop.net - 195.238.4.49 (Help) (Trace IP) (Senderbase lookup) 195.238.4.49 listed in bl.spamcop.net (127.0.0.2) If there are no reports of ongoing objectionable email from this system it will be delisted automatically in approximately 12 hours. Causes of listing * System has sent mail to SpamCop spam traps in the past week (spam traps are secret, no reports or evidence are provided by SpamCop) * It appears this listing is caused by misdirected bounces. We have a FAQ which covers this topic: Why auto-responses are bad (Misdirected bounces). Please read this FAQ and heed the advice contained in it. Automatic delisting If you are the administrator of outmx025.isp.belgacom.be and you are sure it will not be the subject of any more reports of spam, you may cause the system to be delisted without waiting for us to review the issue. You may only do this once per IP! So please be sure that the problem is really and truly resolved. If you delist your system and we get more spam reports about it, you will not be allowed to expedite delisting again. Delisting normally occurs 24 hours after spam reports have ceased. You must be able to receive mail at one of the addresses below. Until you have received and confirmed your request, it will not take effect. Looking for potential administrative email addresses for 195.238.4.49: cannot find an mx for outmx025.isp.belgacom.be 195.238.5.129 is an mx ( 10 ) for isp.belgacom.be 195.13.11.167 is an mx ( 10 ) for belgacom.be Listing History System has been listed for less than 24 hours.

  4. Greetings, Since very recently, Spamcom is blocking e-mails that I sent to a very good friend in South Africa. I myself live in Belgium and my ISP is "Belgacom Skynet" (Skynet being broadband ADSL). Is Spamcom insane? They block a whole, national Internet Service Provider because, maybe, one fool does not keep his computer virus-free, and as a result no single customer of that ISP can send emails (to a certain receiver)? This is the most idiotic way to block unwanted emails! Spamcop is "punishing" people who are absolutely not involved in any illegal/illegitimate actions at all. I have a Mac (as in "Macintosh"), so I don't even have any viruses. Spamcop's way of working is an unacceptable way to stop spam. It is unacceptable, because their actions "punish" hundreds, thousands of ISP customers - and I do not mean services like Yahoo or Hotmail, but large ISP's like my own, Belgium's national ISP Belgacom Skynet. I will file a complaint with the ISP of my South African friend (which seemingly use Spamcop's "services"), with Spamcop itself and forward it to my own ISP, Belgacom/Skynet. Spamcop blocking a WHOLE ISP is an unacceptable way of doing business! Sincerely, Kris Dee, angry Belgian
