AOL blocking legitimate emails

  DieSse 20:39 28 Jul 2003

Has anyone come across any of their friends/family in Spain, with Wanadoo as an ISP, having their emails rejected quote "due to the high volume of spam from this ISP"

I had an email to -pops- returned - twice on seperate days, so no transient co-incidence. Plua I've had two other clients so far with the same problem.

This is totally outrageous - and there isn't even a link on their rejection message to complain about ths high-handed treatment.

Wanadoo (who own Freeserve) are probably the largest ISP in Europe!

Can any AOL users tackle them about this please.

I'm willing to give AOL a call, but not quite sure as to what you want me to ask them! j.

I am having the same trouble with my emails to Hawaii and Cyprus via Bt.They are being returned. I have posted for help here but I haven't got very far. My English ones are ok.

They are blocking all emails from Wanadoo in Spain - many people use Wanadoo (Freeserve in the UK) to keep in touch, and all their emails(and mine - I use them too) are being rejected.

Please ask them to stop doing so.

the exact words are " Due to spam your IP range has been blocked (code bl-2254) Contact postmaster for details. How does one contact the postmaster???. CHeers
