Hi. This is the qmail-send program at plesk-host03.plus.net.
I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses.
This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.
<##########@live.co.uk>:
Connected to 65.55.92.152 but sender was rejected.

Im getting hundreds of bounced emails from my forum who is set up with phpBB and anybody who has a msn, hotmail, live, etc email address is having the server reject the above plus.net IP address.  It just seems like a complete blanket ban on plus.net.
This is a major issue as I have just lost communication with a large chunk of the internet through the IP address that my hosting is sat upon.  Sad
Can anybody from plusnet comment or possibly any other plesk-host3 hosted users?

You can add googlemail to the list too.
I doubt my small forum can be causing this so I'm guessing there is another account hosted on host3 causing all PAYH users on this server the issue.

some further research reveals the blacklist of the IP address is help by spamhause as its caused by a trojan infected servers and consiquently PAYH host3 server is now "spammed" by hotmail and googlemail.  Sad
more info at:  http://www.spamhaus.org/query/bl?ip=212.56.83.232
[quote="http://cbl.abuseat.org/lookup.cgi?ip=212.56.83.232"]IP Address 212.56.83.232 is listed in the CBL. It appears to be infected with a spam sending trojan or proxy.
It was last detected at 2011-01-22 16:00 GMT (+/- 30 minutes), approximately 2 hours, 30 minutes ago.
This IP is infected with, or is NATting for a machine that is infected with, a PHP-based backdoor trojan. The most common target of this infestation is Plesk hosting environments using Qmail and Wordpress.
The infestation appears to be associated with the virtual web host "www.rowlinson.plushost.co.uk". Attempts to find the trojan scripts should focus on the web content directories associated with "www.rowlinson.plushost.co.uk".
I bloody hope plusnet or PAYH sort this out asap, ill be on the phone monday morning complaining but as my wife used to work for PN she confirms that PAYH level 3 advisors are not available except mon - fri 9.5pm  Sad
Hope this info helps some other users, regards Denis
