Problem sending email

I'm getting an error back when trying to send mail

[12743:Main Thread]: I/SMTP SMTP Response: 554 avasout04 smtp ESMTP server not available (blacklisted by local policy)

This is from a PlusNet connection

Telnetting to relay.plus.net on port 25 gives the same response immediately.

Is there a problem with the mail servers ?

Re: Problem sending email

Do you still encounter the problem ?

I have a static IP address but am not encountering the issue.

Re: Problem sending email

@Townman. Yes, the problem is still present. The only thing i can that might have a effect is that my static IP is on the sorbs blacklist? That shouldn't be a,problem though since I understand that all dynamic ranges,would.also be on that list by default and they aren't prevented from sending via the relays

Re: Problem sending email

Hi @MisterW I've raised a task with our NetOps team to investigate further although it does sound like your IP address has been blacklisted for some reason so it may be worth filling out this form to reset it: https://csi.cloudmark.com/en/reset/

Will let you know once I've got a reply back.

Fix

@MisterW 

There looks to have been an issue with your particular IP ending up on a naughty list. Appears to have been caused by transposed digits by whoever made the entry. Should be sorted now though.

Re: Problem sending email

Interesting insight - naughty lists are created manually?

Re: Problem sending email

Some of them are manual, yes. Though there are also some automated lists in an attempt to be more proactive where possible.
