Hello,

Spamcop has finally listed one of our IP addresses! We know this because our mail server, which also uses spamcop, ironically, is blocking all email originating from this IP and telling us to go see see http://www.spamcop.net/bl.shtml?209.219.86.35

Problem however is that spamcop is reporting that this IP is not listed.

see http://www.spamcop.net/bl.shtml?209.219.86.35

How do I find out why was this ip listed? or has it been delisted?

It does not show up as listed when searching on the SpamCop website, but both SenderBase and OpenRBL say that it is SpamCop listed. Maybe it has been delisted and these other sites take some time to catch up? It looks like this system was reported twice in the past week:

It may have been a delay on showing up at the spamcop web page because I am seeing it now but it is about to delist again:

209.219.86.35 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 zero time.

Causes of listing

SpamCop users have reported system as a source of spam less than 10 times in the past week

Problem however is that spamcop is reporting that this IP is not listed.

see http://www.spamcop.net/bl.shtml?209.219.86.35

Some of this data is mirrored at locations around the world. The listing/delisting is based on a mathematical formula (see the FAQ). Just a couple of background possibilities.

How do I find out why was this ip listed?

Parsing input: 209.219.86.35

host 209.219.86.35 = win.mediopia.biz (cached)

Routing details for 209.219.86.35

Report routing for 209.219.86.35: abuse[at]newedgenetworks.com

This ISP is not noted for quickly responding to issues. But they are the ones that would have rceivd the reports/complaints.

or has it been delisted?

The flip side tho this question ... can you explain the data seen at SenderBase?

Volume Statistics for this IP

Magnitude Vol Change vs. Average

Last day ........ 2.6 .. 229%

This is a sizable increase in traffic .. is it your users or a spammer or two?
