ip address and email

hi,
anyone know how to find out my 'real' ip address?
the reason i ask is i've just had an email bounced due to my ip address being high risk 'This IP address is used for sending Spam on a regular basis'
the people i sent to are using this company http://miracare.mirapoint.com/checkip.html
anyway wanted to check it out
if it's correct it's implying i have a zombie, although it's not been found by my AV prog.
cheers
pete

Re: ip address and email

More fundamentally unless you are operating your own email server then the IP address in question is one of Plusnet's email servers I believe

Re: ip address and email

wonder if that happened when i changed to pro a few months back?
anyway fyi 212.159.7.35 has been spamming people

Re: ip address and email

Does the bounce give any indication of the IP address
Under properties you might find something like
Received: from [212.159.7.97] (helo=mx.pcl-ipin01.plus.net)
 by inmx16.plus.net with esmtp (PlusNet MXCore v2.00) id

It's not the first time PNs mail servers have been blacklisted.

Re: ip address and email

I think a lot of the time it's taking entries in those databases as gospel rather than advisory.

Re: ip address and email

Hey guys,
I've had a look into this, Looks like it's listed at http://access.redhawk.org/dbq.php
I'll flag this with the network guys and get them to investigate
I'm sure someone in Digi Care will keep you posted.
Thanks,
Matt
EDIT: Problem 65830 has been raised for this investigation.

Re: ip address and email

Morning
Any news on this? I checked the Service Status page this a.m. as I've just had an email to XXX@btconnect address rejected:
"The reason for the problem:
5.1.0 - Unknown address error 550-'Message rejected due to sender IP reputation ([212.159.7.35]); see http://miracare.mirapoint.com/checkip.html '"

So I checked at miracare and got:
IP Query Result:
IP Address: 84.92.111.11
Risk Level: Suspicious
Description: This IP address has not been detected as an email source recently

I'm not sure what that means?

Re: ip address and email

The IP address you checked is your IP address which isn't relevant
The problem address is the Plusnet email server address 212.159.7.35
