Hi

We are having some issues receiving emails some xtra accounts. Below is the error message from 2 different delivery failures:

Remote host said: 554 5.7.1 Message (34005-06530) appears to be unsolicited - totalscore for 98.139.44.178 (516) higher than PenaltyExtreme (500) [BODY]

and

5.7.1 Message (33964-15131) appears to be unsolicited - totalscore for 210.54.141.245 (514) higher than PenaltyExtreme (500)

and

5.7.1 Message (33964-15131) appears to be unsolicited - totalscore for 210.54.141.244 (514) higher than PenaltyExtreme (500)


My mail server provider (which is not Xtra or Telecom) says  that the IP addresses from xtra has been blacklisted (not by them) and Telecom needs to get it cleared. Telecom on the other hand is denying this. I do not know if anyone else is having similar issues but i cannot receive emails from many xtra emails.

If there is any  solution out there please can anyone let me know. 

Thanks
Imran

Yup it looks like Telecom has been blacklisted for more than a month now. Numerous threads around discussing it and its even been in the news.

Not much you can do but maybe ask your mail provider to change a setting which puts suspected spam into junk email rather than straight off denying it?

Hi Zeon

Thank you for the reply. I hope this is resolved soon as I believe there are so many people affected.

Perhaps they are using smtp.xtra.co.nz? If so they might be better off using send.xtra.co.nz

Has your mail provider given you any more information regarding what blacklist 210.54.141.245 is on? and what makes the "score" go above 500 for them to reject.

Checking

http://www.anti-abuse.org/multi-rbl-check-results/?host=210.54.141.244

its not or any of the main ones at all and the 1st is on backscatter only but as (it seems) your mail provider uses a score type system (higher the score the more spammy it is). being on 1 shouldn't put it over normaly.

^ This

It's hard to correct something when no information is given.

What blacklist is your email provider / ISP using?
Without that information Telecom can't remove their IP's

My mail service provider used multirbl[dot]valli[dot]org to show me the black list.

Telecom just sent me an email asking to try sending and receiving emails and if errors still continue then provide them with new headers from delivery failure emails.

Well after requesting, some of my customers on xtra to sent me emails successfully. Not sure what fixed the issue. I have asked Telecom to tell me what they did to fix the issue and if they do come back to me, I will post it here.

PS: I sent the headers provided above to Telecom as well.
