Dropzone.com blacklisted by spamcop Quote | Reply

When trying to send mail today to a familiar address, I received a failure notice:

<host@circus-maximus.com>:
173.199.170.19 does not like recipient.
Remote host said: 550-"JunkMail rejected - dz.nmsrv.com (dropzone.com) [204.187.14.148] is in an
550 RBL, see Blocked - see http://www.spamcop.net/bl.shtml?204.187.14.148"
Giving up on 173.199.170.19.

Any thoughts?

Unfortunately this site has been around for a long time and because of that many previous users have closed the e-mail accounts they registered with, but left their DZ forum notifications on. Because of this our system has been sending closed addresses forum updates for their subscriptions and the bounced e-mails have been picked up by spam filters.

I can say that we are working hard at getting this removed very soon.

Well, I guess I can't ask for more than that. Thanks for the information and good luck.

I suppose that the ugliness of spam has made anti-spam systems a bit overzealous at times. For example, I can remember McAfee Site Advisor blacklisting subscription pages of (highly technical) mailinglists on the grounds of "receiving lots of e-mails after having filled in an e-mail address". That is of course exactly what such subscription pages are for. Likewise, as long as the dropzone.com mailserver(s) cannot be used as relay(s) for spammers, the domain does not belong on blacklists.

Again, thanks for the explanation and good luck remedying the situation.
