Why was my site blocked?

Hello,

My site was blacklisted approx Feb 5 and 6. We learned of this Feb 8. By Feb 9,

we were not in the list anymore. I have been trying to determine why we were listed,

if anyone at my site was contacted, what info that warning email may have contained, and how we were then de-listed. If we have vulnerabilities, I need to know so we can fix ASAP.

198.8.3.62 mail2.no.entergy.com

Is there a way to retrieve history for an IP address?

Can anyone offer assistance?

Thank in advance,

Robyn

More possibly useful info.

We got lots of bounced emails from our users like this:

There are no entries in your Report History. That could mean that they were spamtrap hits that only a deputy could reveal any information about.

More information on many reasons for spamtrap hits is at: http://mailsc.spamcop.net/bl.shtml?198.8.3.62

Senderbase is showing moderate increase in traffic seen from that server:

Magnitude Vol Change vs. Average

Last day 5.0 94%

Last 30 days 5.1 170%

Average 4.7

if anyone at my site was contacted

Reporting addresses:

postmaster[at]entergy.com

Spamtraps will not generate any reports, however.

<Moderator hat> Since there seems to be no response in the other forum and you repeated all information here, I am going to delete the other thread.
