SORBS blacklist

Unanswered Question
May 8th, 2007

Hello:

What do you sugest to do if my IP address is blacklist in SORBS?

They ask for paying a 50$ fine and they refuse to understand I'm using Ironport and low amount of spam can be sent from my servers.

Thank you

I have this problem too.

We had an issue where we sent a delivery failure to a SORBS Spam Trap address. This may be the case with you too. They will de-list without fees if this is the case. It took a bit to get it done but once we got a response from someone they were very responsive.

Good Luck

When I was first building up my network I hadn't set reverse dns away from what my colo gives. So the PTR record for my sending IP looked like:

static-1-2-3-4.something.somethingelse.mycolo.net

SORBS decided that looked like a DSL address and threw me into the bucket of blacklisted dynamic senders. Then my network provider (sorbs wouldn't talk to me) spent the next month working with them to get delisted. Absolutely ridiculous, I wish email adminstrators would stop blocking email based solely on these silly blacklists.
