Don't have a clue why I'm blocked...

- I run windows xp, AVG email scanner and Thunderbird email client.

- I've scanned the computer with an on-line tool. Got several cookies, no virus (apparently)

This is the message I got:

This is the AVG E-mail Scanner program.

I'm sorry to have to inform you that the message returned

below could not be delivered to one or more destinations.

Did you read the message at the URL you posted?

That offers some explanations - notably that the listing should end soon.

As a paying member I can see the following spam item as an example from the most recent submissions:

Sure looks like spam to me.

My guess is that you are sending your Email through your ISP. In which case you should raise the problem with them. The person you sent an Email to has blocked incoming Emails based upon this information (or their ISP has if they are an individual). abuse[at]ya.com has been told about the problem. Is ya.com your ISP?

Andrew,

I may look quite stupid here, because I read the link and also the FAQ.

So now I know I'm sending spam unintentionally (how and who?), I'd like to know how to stop it... for me and for my victims. I tried to contact my ISP but is holyday today.

ya.com is my ISP for connection, but the mail server is from another ISP.

Now I'm trying to find out if the problem is related to the huge amount of spam trackback I got daily because of my blog. I just don't know.

Thank you very much for confirming I'm spamming (somehow)

Toni,

That's not what I said. Sorry if that's how it came over... The mail server for ya.com is distributing spam but it may not be from you. It could any of ya.com's customers. Because you share their mail server you are being blocked by the person or ISP you are writing to.

It is not necessarily that YOU are spamming. If 84.76.47.117 is the IP address of your ISPs outgoing mailserver, then it may be that other users of the same server are spamming. Spamcop lists by IP address, as that is the smallest aggregate that can be reliably identified and blocked.

If 84.76.47.117 is your IP address at your home, then it may be that it is dynamic, and someone else had it recently and used it to spam.

If 84.76.47.117 is statically assigned to you, or is dynamic and has been assigned to you for a substantial length of time as may be the case on cable or dsl connections, then yes, it would appear that you are sending spam.

AVG is not generally considered a first tier anti-virus program. You might want to try running McAfee or Norton as they have a tendancy to pick up some things that other AV programs miss. Do you have just a single computer connected to the internet? Do you use any kind of firewall appliance between it and your cable/dsl modem?

some issues involved here. tonitt needs to ecplain exactly how he/she believes he/she is sending e-mail. What I am seeing is that the offered link (which takes on to http://www.spamcop.net/w3m?action=blcheck&...ip=84.76.47.117 happens to match the posting IP address .... as it is ready to age off, the data existing there now is;

84.76.47.117 listed in bl.spamcop.net (127.0.0.2)

If there are no reports of ongoing objectionable email from this system it will be delisted automatically in a short time.

Causes of listing

Additional potential problems

...Might that not be an indication that Toni's ISP is doing what we here fault (incorrectly, as of now, according to DT) Yahoo for not doing, that is to use the IP address of the actual originator of the spam rather than the provider's outgoing server?

Toni,

...More information (although I can't vouch for its accuracy) at http://cbl.abuseat.org/lookup.cgi?ip=84.76...;.submit=Lookup.

That's possible, but we'd really need to see the headers of a message that he sent to draw any conclusion about that.

[at]tonitt: If you can send yourself a message to a yahoo or hotmail account, and post the headers here, that would tell us a lot about the path the message is taking, and might answer some of these questions.

To be clear, my statements don't involve all of Yahoo mail, but rather only the messages sent *through* the Yahoo!Groups servers by subscribers to those groups. However, that topic isn't particularly relevant here, except that it does appear that something odd is happening with the attribution of the source of at least some of Toni's emails.

Hi,

finally I talked to someone at Ya.com, but he didn't seem to understand what I was saying. He said that, since my Ip is dynamicaly assigned, maybe it wasn't me who sent the spam. I told him that I had that IP for months (he said that was really weird). He "reset" something and told me to connect again, so I've got a new Ip and the problem was over.

I scanned my computer with the Panda online scanner, which was recommended to me.

This is the full header of the very first message I had that warning. I don't know if it helps. I my "sent" folders there are no spam messages...

AVG E-mail Scanner program.

...Well, maybe. If you have some kind of bad program running on your PC, you may find that your new IP address is on the blacklist. Please come back in about a month or so and let us know if everything is still okay. Thanks!

...And also free Yahoo!Mail accounts, as you showed in one of your posts on September 23 in thread "My ISP isn't using reverse DNS for its DSL servers".
