Sure enough, mxtoolbox.com<http://mxtoolbox.com> reports that rbl.iprange.net<http://rbl.iprange.net> has blacklisted us for more than a day. However, looking up our address on the rbl.iprange.net<http://rbl.iprange.net> lookup webpage shows we're NOT listed. But a check of the RBL's DNS shows that we are. Then I found this on the rbl.iprange.net<http://rbl.iprange.net> owner's website ():

If you do manage to get ahold of anyone there, you might suggest they read 
section 3.4 of


There's a right way to shut down a DNSBL that's been tested and used by 
others.  Listing the world is not the right way.
