Can't send emails: IP blocked by Spamhaus

  • Posted November 29, 2013

Some of my emails are blocked because my IP is blacklisted by Spamhaus. The reason is:

IP Address 198.x.x.x is listed in the CBL. It appears to be infected with a spam sending trojan, proxy or some other form of botnet. This IP is infected (or NATting for a computer that is infected) with a spambot we have not yet been able to identify.

How can I found where the problem is? What logs can I check?

I’m using zpanel.

Hello all,

hey i have the problem too! <br>Is the problem solved?

Set up an iptables rule to redirect mail on the box to a local Postfix <br>instance, and then set up Postfix to relay though MailChannels Cloud. <br>Then use the MailChannels Cloud console to search through the outbound <br>mail traffic and identify the spam and where it’s coming from on the <br>box.
