SORBS have decided that they have a dynamic IP. perhaps submit a request
indicating that it really is a static IP.
Thats half of the internet then, isnt it?
who, by process of popular opinion, really should be relaying through their
i don't totally agree with that stance but unfortunately it's far easier for
you to smarthost via your ISP. getting non-generic RDNS and convincing
DNSBLs that you have a static is slightly harder, getting people to stop
using a particular DNSBL is nigh on impossible.
Unfortunately it doesn't work that way. I too have a client that has
the same problem, except that SORBS think their IP is dynamic when in
truth it's static. The problem mainly arises from the reverse dns and
if you go to the SORBS site they explain what the fix is - the problem
is that many DSL providers, who do provide static IPs as well as dynamic
IPs, don't/can't/won't fix up their rdns.
