bgorman Posted October 3, 2006 Share Posted October 3, 2006 Hello, My ip address was blacklisted today due to a virus that one of our workstations was infected with overnight. We corrected the problem AND inserted a firewall rule that prohibits all outgoing connections to port 25 except from our mail server. This should help with the worms that are not looking for a Relay and have their own smtp engine. Since the problem is corrected, I was going to see what I can do getting our IP "delisted" .. Looking at the URL provided to me by a bounced email : http://www.spamcop.net/w3m?action=blcheck&ip=126.96.36.199 I can see that there is a provison for quickly and manually delisting our address. The only problem is that the reverse lookup on our ip address is 72-4-45-114.c029889.jaxnet.net. Our ISP does not provide us with DNS services for our domain so we had to go with a third party DNS provider. In my relative universe, 188.8.131.52 should reverse-resolve to davidsontitles.com which, if you do a whois, will list it[at]davidsontitles.com as our technical contact email address. Instead, it resolves to that crappy ISP auto generated dns name and your system will only send the delist confirmation email to the listed contacts for jaxnet.net, our ISP. I wouldn't think this would be an "exceptional condition" and any thoughts or help on the subject would be appreciated.
