After a fair amount of of complaining on Twitter, I was contacted by
someone in the email group at Earthlink. After explaining the ongoing
problems we've been experiencing with our list server getting blocked,
he looked into the issue for me.
Here's some of the information he shared:
> Sure enough, your IP was being blocked. This usually only happens
> when we get an excessive amount of spam complaints from that IP. We
> unblocked it last night, but I'm trying to find out how many
> complaints we actually got and if we can white list it so it won't
> be blocked in the future.
> I couldn't get an exact number on the amount of complaints, but what
> told it wasn't "significant." So, we went ahead and whitelisted the
> IP. Let me know if you see future issues.
> Sorry about that.
> - Stephen
There you go.
The NewtonTalk list is now officially whitelisted with Earthlink. All
list members with earthlink.com and mindspring.com addresses should
receive messages without any problems in the future. Theoretically.
Now I feel kinda bad I was so bitchy on Twitter about this. Kinda.
