Attn: Verizon customers

Post by Plarz » Tue Feb 18, 2014 7:28 pm

We've been blacklisted by Verizon as a "spam" site, due to the sheer amount of e-mails that the site sends on behalf of our users:
After investigation, Verizon Online Security has determined that e-mail from your IP address will not be allowed access to the Verizon Online e-mail domain due to one or more of the following reasons:

Your IP has been blocked because of spam issues or because your ISP indicates that it is dynamically assigned

Once you have addressed any security-related issues on your network, you should contact Verizon Online Security via this form. At that time, we will work with you to restore normal e-mail traffic or to take other action as we deem appropriate.

Sincerely,

Verizon Online Security

abuse@verizon.net
Nearly every PM and response to a post generates an e-mail notification to one or several users, and with 30,000+ users, that's a crap-ton of e-mails.

I have worked with our web host to fix a minor issue (incorrectly configured rDNS, for those that care), and have tried unsuccessfully numerous times since to use Verizon's tool to get whitelisted. I now have an e-mail in to whitelist@verizon.net, but who knows how fruitful that will be. The kicker is, I can't even e-mail them about the issue from the official website admin e-mail, since it's blocked:
This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.

A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:

whitelist@verizononline.net
SMTP error from remote mail server after initial connection:
host outbound.bizmailsrvcs.net [206.46.232.21]:
550-Email from 50.28.87.41 is currently blocked by Verizon Online's anti-spam
550-system. The email sender or Email Service Provider may visit
550 http://www.verizon.net/whitelist and request removal of the block. 140218
Here's Verizon's whitelist page. If you are a Verizon user, feel free to fill out the form and show your support for us to be whitelisted.

Our info for Part 2 of the form info:
Details:
Bartertown.com
admin@bartertown.com

Outgoing Server:
host2.bartertown.com
50.28.87.41
Despite the fact that Bartertown.com hasn't done anything wrong, I'm sorry for the issues this is causing.

For now, if you are a Verizon ISP customer (you use their DSL, FiOS or dial-up) you probably won't be getting anymore e-mails from Bartertown.com. I suggest making a GMail account, or using the Tapatalk Mobile App (which will notify you of PMs, responses to posts, etc)

Success!

Verizon should be whitelisting us soon, so be on the lookout for e-mails!

Verizon has whitelisted us, we're back in business!

If anyone has issues receiving forum e-mails from the admin @ bartertown.com address, please send me a PM.
