Occassional Blocks--Why?

Recommended Posts

Y'all:

On occassion, I get an email stating my domain, riw.us, has been blocked because it's on the spamcop list. For instance, I've pasted in the "included message" from one such notification below. What I don't understand is that when I check, my IP address (either for mail.riw.us or riw.us) is not on the list at all. It seems like this happens on a periodic basis, but I can't ever trace the root cause. I don't know if someone else is faking my addresses, or what, but the server isn't open (it requires a username and password to use SMTP, although the originating domain is not checked, since this is a hosting service, rather than a "full ISP").

Does anyone have any thoughts or insight into the spamcop database that would help me keep from haiving email bounce?

Hi. This is the qmail-send program at associate.com.

I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses.

This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.

<russ[at]riw.us>:

Doesn't sound like an actual SpamCop listing is involved at all - unless someone with access to listing history can demonstrate otherwise. Some admins seem to use "SpamCop" as a generic name for any list which is a possibility. All I can suggest is you query the rejecting IP - "exactly why are you saying this?"

There are some reports but it is currently not listed and the reports are VERY sparse (one per month):

Hi

As you'd know if you'd bothered to read the FAQ SpamCop doesn't work on domains or on email addresses but on the originating IP (the only thing that can not be forged)
