Looks like one of the paradise boxes is on a SpamCop.net blacklist

    "Host name of is bm-4a.paradise.net.nz"

    Just got an e-mail bounced back to me, with reason being one of the IP
    addresses on the route ( being blocked by SpamCop.

    The mail server that bounced it was the orcon one (mail.orcon.net.nz),
    and I checked with the SpamCop database, and sure enough that IP was on
    the blocklist (however, it automatically clears itself 20 hours after
    the last "offence").

    Oh well, I'll just use a different smtp server (sigh).

    Spamcop sucks. It relys on good faith, and anyone can report someone for
    spamming, hich then affects the IP address that they were sending from. If
    it is from an ISP, is affects all other users on that IP.

  3. Paradise, however, regularly get listed and are slack about getting
    We have more issues with them than any other ISP when it comes to clients
    at work complaining that we're "blocking" their e-mail - we don't, it just
    gets delayed coming via Paradise because they're listed more often than
    they're not.

    Nothing new here. Paradise always seem to find themselves on the
    lists. They seem to have far more problems with this than other ISPs.

    Which is because SpamCop is a real Bilstein of an organisation. It
    accepts and repeats anything anyone tells it. Orcon also gets clobbered.

    I wonder what will happen if someone reports Spamcop's own IP address to
    itself? Maybe they will get smarter?

  6. Being slack is only Paradise's fault. IHUG and Slingshot both seem to
    avoid extended periods of being registered, and they're of a similar size
    to Paradise.
    Unlikely. That would require a change in their model, and that seems to be
    beyond their intellectual capabilities.

  7. At that very moment, Rob turned to nz.comp and said
    It takes more than one report to get on the blacklist, though.
