Blocked by


I was trying to send an email to someone in China and the message bounced because it was blocked by

Service unavailable; Client host [] blocked using; And the horse you rode in on! (in reply to RCPT TO command

I want to and there wasn't an easy way to tell why the IP was blocked… I have no idea how to fix whatever could be wrong (and I did send a message to the same address before, and it worked).

Did anyone else have problems with this blocklist before?

The anti-spam lists were shut down in 2003. Check this page - looks like your correspondent's ISP has messed something up.

Ah, thanks a lot!

So that's why isn't listed in smap blocklists…

I'll contact their postmaster.
