I have apparently had my email listed on a blacklist site. Checked all the common blacklisters, and only BlackHole lists my email address. I asked to be removed to no avail. The two people I try to email are both with government. They do not know (from their end) who is blocking me. They are also not in a position to ask Blackhole to re-instate me. (Some internal thing).

Any ideas? Thanks :thumbsup:

Usually those lists block domains or IP ranges, they don't usually block just a singular e-mail address. What is the domain you are sending from?

You may want to consider getting a new e-mail account on a different domain.

Yes. Thank you. I am using a local ISP. You are right, it is actually not my specific email being blocked. Aside from changing services, any other ideas? I am assuming the Blackhole is considering someone within my ISP to be a spammer?

That is correct, there is or was someone on your ISP that was considered a spammer. Not much you can do to get your ISP delisted. Your ISP would need to make the request and prove they killed the spammers account with them. Unfortunately there are ISPs who don't care too much about removing spammers unless it effects their cash flow.

You may want to look at getting one of the free e-mail accounts from hotmail, yahoo...etc. and see if you can send them an e-mail from there.

edit = Cbus needs to learn to hit the spellcheck button. :thumbsup:
