We are currently in contact with sorbs and are working with them to resolve this as soon as possible.

Plusnet Mail Server about to be blocked?

This is now causing us a problem with communicating with one of our major suppliers:

This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.

A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:

This is a major inconvienience to us.

That's the problem with blacklisting, all it takes is one bad customer and everyone gets affected.

Since this is the main plusnet mail server thats been listed, its reasonable to assume that said person can be located and will be delt with accordingly (I suggest a sack full of door knobs and a dark alley)

The door knobs trick doesn't work on zombies I think you'll find! Wink

Affecting me too.

I've a static IP on a business PN account, and when I send an email home via my exchange server it comes right back. I get the same Undeliv email notifying me about the spamming SORBS problem.

Weirdest thing is that if I send it via another machine logged on as a different user the email gets through to my home account. Weird indeed.

Does the forum think its just being sent via an alternate PN mail server (round robin type approach) which is not currently on the blacklist?

Any ideas?

Looks like this server is now also blocked by SORBS 212.159.14.213, It is stopping me getting mail to a client. Is this worth reporting via a ticket or are PN already aware of the problem?Huh

Dear oh dear.

Looks like somebody is in for a spanking!

Can we make it a public event?

If there is a shortage of doorknobs, snooker balls in a football sock usually suffice too......

hmm

if you are using exchange why arent you using direct dns sending rather than using +net's smarthost ?

just make sure you have a PTR record setup for the public ip for your exchange server..

and your smtp server is using thr correct masqerade dns name,

SORBS is of the opinion that all entries created by the SORBS administrators are correct.

Reading that and some of their other pronouncements, their heads seem well lodged in their backsides.


I tried to use less theirs but my grammar skills are limited after a long day :?
