therocket954 Posted December 10, 2007 Share Posted December 10, 2007 OK.... for starters, my eyes burn from reading and learning about SpamCop which I've never heard of before today. When I'm at home and sending email, there's no problem. When I'm at work, I have Outlook configured to handle my personal email account which is eric[at]venomvisuals.com Here's the error message Outlook provides: The message could not be sent because one of the recipients was rejected by the server. The rejected e-mail address was 'eric[at]venomvisuals.com'. Subject 'test', Account: 'Home Email', Server: 'mail.venomvisuals.com', Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '451 Blocked - see http://www.spamcop.net/bl.shtml?22.214.171.124', Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 451, Error Number: 0x800CCC79 What I'm so confused about..... if I'm using my own mailserver (mail.venomvisuals.com) for incoming and outgoing email, how is SpamCop allowed to block my email. I've read that SpamCop cannot touch my email, but recipients have the option of blocking my email..... however, if I'm sending an email to anyone, (including myself), I still get blocked which is extremely frustrating and contradicting. Since sending from home is fine, I'm assuming it has something to do with my dayjob's IP address. We have MANY machines here, however, they are all behind a single IP Address (126.96.36.199). Is SpamCop ignoring the mailserver information and watching the sender's (my) IP Address? Given the above information, I'm further assuming that my dayjob's IP Address has been blacklisted, causing the block.... which could mean that ANYONE's machine could be infected and sending spam.... And Since SpamCop will not give out specific reasons why we're blacklisted, how does one go about finding the culprit / resolution to this problem!? Any help (or corrections to my above assumptions) is greatly appreciated!! (And sorry for the novel I just typed). Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
