Subject [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-7594) Apache Mail blacklisted by SenderScore (aka "ReturnPath")
Date Wed, 11 Jun 2014 06:58:01 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-7594?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14027491#comment-14027491

Herbert Duerr commented on INFRA-7594:
--------------------------------------

I'm sorry to hear this. I have no connection to them except that my ISP (and BellSouth/AT&T,
Comcast, Cox, Qwest, etc.) uses them and they don't deliver Apache mail if the Apache mail
server is blacklisted. When I talked with my ISP's last level tech support about this mail
delivery problem and we tracked it down to the senderscore and I was able to get hermes delisted.
About ten times in the meantime, so must be a systematic problem that only a person with access
to hermes and senderscore can solve. @Joe: Thanks for looking into this!

> Many Email providers use the service of https://www.senderscore.org/ named "ReturnPath"
in their fight against spam. If an IP address is blacklisted by senderscore then all the recipients
don't even get to see the mails from such spam servers.
> For some reason hermes.apache.org got blacklisted three times in the last few days. One
can check whether it is currently blacklisted using their https://www.senderscore.org/blacklistlookup/
page. It is possible to request the blacklist status to be removed using their https://www.senderscore.org/rtbl/
page (I just did it for the third time), but it seems that hermes.apache.org is abused recently
to send spam mail, so it gets blacklisted again.
> The only way to solve this to fix it at the root of the problem. Someone with enough
karma on hermes.apache.org needs the check the spam problem and/or work with them to resolve
this spam->blacklist issue. Mails being dropped for days and users not getting them at
all is a serious problem.
