Re: [PLUG] WAS: spamassassin help: create a rule to score by sender TLD Now: Email support

All my users are employees of a single company and would not be sending spam.

If any of my users had any issues sending email, I would have heard of it. The last time anyone had an issue sending mail was over a year ago, so if this is what "broken" looks like, I'm content for it to be broken.

I suspect if we're on any kind of list it's based on a block of IPs, not our particular IP. We're on a VPS, which spammers like to use, so it's not surprising that other IPs in our block would be on blacklists. Nothing I can do about that, unfortunately.

But I will investigate further in case there's anything actually coming from our server. Regardless, your spam filter is pickier than that of any of the companies and government agencies we do business with.

Okay, yeah, your email is broken.

I see that your server is sending phish and spam and nasty stuff...

Not cool dude :(

You are on multiple blacklists:

okay, we only use dnsbl - so your server is blacklisted somewhere, not
sure why it is re-writing your bounce as my server tells you what
DNSBL you are blocked on.

basically this means that you need to first stop your abuse then apply
to whatever blacklist to be removed - then we will accept your email

So, my email is not broken :)

In fact, yours is... also for re-writing headers and not telling you
what is going on.

(unless your host/isp is ashamed to be listed at spamhaus or
wherever... and wants their users to think it is a mystery
"administrative prohibition" right...)

hope this helps you
