Uceprotect has some strange listing policies that have been questioned
numerous times. But the crux of it is this, the people who use
UCEProtect are well aware of it - and it's not widely used. Personally
it's one of those lists I don't trust to block at an SMTP level, but
will include a score shifter on a hit.

Listen Nigel, your main issue here is not SORBS or UCEProtect, but your
ISP. BT are - quite simply - pants. They are tardy, lazy and poor at
dealing with issues like this. If you don't want this hassle change
providers - or put up with the fallout that comes from using BT.

Honestly, it's probably the best advice you'll ever get. It's a few days
down the road since you came here and mentioned this issue and your
provider has still not dealt with it. That would be 'MAC CODE - GOODBYE'
in my book.
