[OT] Spam Block List Removal

Todd, I looked up your IP at www.dnsstuff.com in the "Spam Database
Lookup" section at the bottom of the page. It says your are listed in
APEWS and NoMoreFunN.

Its odd that the message doesn't contain any information on which
service has you listed. Don't worry about APEWS too much, the only way
to get off is to wait. No professional server operator would ever use
it. You'll have to look up the removal instructions for the other one.

Perhaps someone else has fallen into this trap and could advise. An errant PC here got infected and started mass mailing virus laden mail to outside addresses which resulted in our mail IP address being put on several email spam blocking lists. I have removed it from most of them but have one particular case that does not provide the information for removal. The only info provided is:

ESMTP #554 Transaction Failed Spam Message not queued. ##

I suspect that the remaining recipient sites still reporting this may be Exchange 2007 and using Microsoft's anti-spam block lists. Shot of trying to contact the recipients' IT departments to see what they use for block lists I am stumped. All the web searches and Wikipedia info I can find do not have this message.

Thanks,

Todd,



Just a thought, but try changing the outside IP address that your mail
server uses. For example, if your mail.domain.com points to 1.2.3.4,
change it to 1.2.3.5. Make sure you have your provider update the
reverse DNS entries on their side.



Hope this helps.



Thanks,

If you have problems in sending mail: A quick fix is using a relay
server (with a different outside IP adress).
In the meantime you can try to get de-blacklisted.

1)
If you have multiple ip adresses available:
Changing the external ip-adres is less time consuming then trying to get
de-blacklisted
Before changing the ip adres, first change the MX-records of your
mailserver:
MX10 new ip adress
MX20 old ip adress
MX30 backup mailserver
etc etc
Wait a few days after the MX change

2)
if you only have ONE ip adress available, try to install a
backupmailserver (if you don't have one)
e.g. on a home ip adress (check if your provider supports smtp on that
backupmailser ip adress)
Before changing the ip adres, first change the MX-records of your
mailserver:
MX10 new ip adress
MX20 old ip adress
MX30 backup mailserver

and then change the ip adress to the new adress, if done correctly there
will be no glitch in receiving mail.
