Why was I blocked?


Recommended Posts


I had an email bounced back from one of my web design customers, stating in the header :

(reason: 501 5.7.1 <???[at]russhosting.com>... Sender refused by the DNSBL bl.spamcop.net)

The return/from address was my domain [at]russhosting.com, and was sent through my ISP mail server [at]execulink.com.

What has me concerned is that (i) I've never sent an unsolicited email in my life (I'm in the internet business and know better), and (ii) I was trying to communicate time-critical site updates to a paying web design client.

So, is it my domain (russhosting.com) or my ISP (execulink.com) that's been blocked, and how do we get it unblocked ASAP so I may communicate with my client? Alternately, who should my lawyer send a letter to? ;)
