This is %#@*&^$# embarrassing!
 
I ran a whois on all my 10 TLD's and this is what I got:

Blacklist Status: Listed - Cached Today

Now I know it wasn't my fault. My ISP was placed on the Blacklist :mad:. Looks like there's no way around this problem. Damn, no business sites until I get a dediacted IP and not in the same ISP.

Thats very bad! :mad:

Did only your dynamic IP got blacklisted or the mailserver of your ISP too? If it is only your dynamic IP, have you tried to configure postfix to route all outgoing mail trough the mailserver of your ISP?

You could contact the blacklist maintainers and ask them to take you off the blacklist.

Well, I don't know how the blacklist proccess is. But ALL my domains are listed as blacklist. So I think my ISP's whole IP thing has been blacklisted. I ran a relay test on this server and there was no problem and my server does not relay.

Where are they listed? On which blacklist?

When I run the queries on whois.sc, this is exactly what is outputted:

Tanks for pointing till. This is the only reason why my IP would be listed.

Dynamic User/Host List Database (DUHL)

Listing is performed manually after contact from netizens or ISPs indicating dynamically assigned space, or whenever SORBS admins notice the same, for example by receiving spam from such an address range.

Note: This list should not list static address space, not even dialups. This is for any dynamically assigned space regardless of the method of connecting them to the Internet.

And if this is the case, while the IP is listed in the blacklist db, mail might not arrive to it's destination because some email servers use sorbs.net blacklist db? I can't contact and complain to my ISP since I am on a residential account and not allowed to run any type of server :mad:. I guess i'll have to live with this until I upgrade. Which is another 4 months to the end of my contract. :rolleyes:

25: I'm blocked.... How do I send mail to the admins of SORBS..?

You can use the mail sending form provided for those blocked. Please remember that you have to use a real email address, as mails with phoney addresses will be ignored.

NOTE: Removal requests for the Proxy databases will be ignored. See: the Retest FAQ. If you have problems obtaining a key or other problems with retester, please feel free to mail.
Their mail sending form is here: http://www.dnsbl.us.sorbs.net/cgi-bin/mail

I'm afraid that will be a losing battle, but i'll try. My IP changes at least every 2 days. Another thing to consider is that other scums/clients with my ISP do spam, adding the block to be blacklisted again. Correct me if i'm wrong, but I think the only solution is to purchase a dedicated IP. So if it happens again, I can email them with the static IP.
