amaul Posted February 8, 2004 Share Posted February 8, 2004 Hello. The first message below I sent to my ISP. Is this what I needed to do here to get the IP 18.104.22.168 delisted? I assume this problem is associated with my ISP and not my specific computer, correct? Two examples of the bounced back error messages appear below. Date: Sun, 08 Feb 2004 01:44:34 -0500 To: support[at]pghconnect.com, postmaster[at]pghmail.com Subject: PghMail servers are on SpamCop's list and are being blocked by other ISPs. Please address this quickly. PghMail servers have been "blacklisted". I am paying for email service in my contract with you, and PghMail is not able to provide me with this service because you allow spammers to abuse your servers. Thank you. The following is found at http://forum.spamcop.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=35 4.) Now we will talk about who is "really" blocking your email ... Most likely the recipients ISP is using the Spamcop List (we will discuss this in the next part #5) and they have blocked this email because the sending ISP's server is a known source of spam on the Internet. You should be complaining to your ISP because they allow spammers to use their resources which in turn caused your email to get blocked.... 6.) Final Notes (VERY IMPORTANT) ... Also, get proactive and help stop the flow of spam. Complain to your ISP because it is their servers that are being blocked. Let them know that you are paying for email service in your contract with them and they are not able to provide you with this service because they allow spammers to abuse their servers. Following are portions of error messages I recently received: #1 Date: Sun, 8 Feb 2004 00:56:02 -0500 From: <postmaster[at]pghmail.com> Subject: Delivery failure Your message has encountered delivery problems to the following recipient(s): abc[at]xyz Delivery failed 553 5.3.0 Delivery blocked; sender rejected via DNS blacklist.
