appearing on blocklists

I have for a long time added a reference to as part of my email template. However, recently I am starting to get emails bounced due to the fact that I have in my emails.

For instance today and both threw back this at me : -

2.5 URIBL_SBL Contains an URL listed in the SBL blocklist

Welcom to the forum Harissa.

I just checked the SBL database and doesn’t appear to be listed. Do you know which IP address was bounced?

Bounced from >>>> host []


I’ve no idea what you’re seeing but that address belongs to:

Which is something to do with GFI mail essentials and France Telecom…

Yes thats right, the ISP was originally Freeserve, then bought by Wanadoo and later rebranded as Orange in the UK >>>>> Freeserve - Wikipedia tells all.
