I Had been Blocked, Help Me I want to be a Better Postmaster


Recommended Posts


Today I received NDR’s from some of my users… One follows

Leila[at]theskillsmarket.com on 14/08/2006 09:42

The e-mail system was unable to deliver the message, but did not report a specific reason. Check the address and try again. If it still fails, contact your system administrator.

< lrnsec03.lorien.co.uk #5.0.0 smtp; 550 5.7.1 The IP address193.115.228.235 was rejected by RBL provider bl.spamcop.net.>

What have I done to to date,

Turned off “Out Of Office” to the Internet

Turned off 90% of Auto Replies on the Mail Gateway

Corrected error on MX record

Next stage

I am installing an Ironmail Gateway, the new gateway will be doing LDAP lookups and dropping any messages to users that are not listed at the gateway (and not sending an NDR).

Out postmaster account is unusable due to rubbish, once the new gateway is in operation we will be able to use this mailbox properly. The reason for missing your informal e-mail regarding SpamCops adding Lorien PLC to there RBL

Could you please tell me why Lorien PLC Mail Gateway was blocked, It will help me avoid such issues in the future.

Well, if you were sending NDRs previously, that would definitely be the most likely reason, since all NDRs generated from spam would likely go to innocent 3rd parties, some of which could potentially be spamtrap addresses.

A quick lookup on the address you gave shows that it is no longer listed. Assuming that NDRs were the problem, if you have corrected that, then I would not expect it to be listed again.

Perhaps one of the paid spamcop members could do a quick check and see if there were any user reports, or if it was all spamtrap hits.
