need help on Spamhaus
« on: November 15, 2018, 06:17:11 PM »

dear experts,

we are running Port25 for a while now, with no major issue. We have several blocks of IPs for a total of aroud 250 IPs - 1/2 used.

Today 60% of our IPs  are blocked by spamhaus, on very different set/range of IPs and really different category of traffic - from the nicest to less nice traffic.

IPs are blocked - then ubblocked after 1 hour then blocked again.

Any help would be welcome.

Should be related to snowshoe. But you need to stop mailing from affected IPs to drop the listing faster.
