Blocked Domain, Email or IP address Questions and Discussion

Hi, I'm the syadmin of an ESP.   For some reason most of our users with ATT email addresses are unable to receive emails from the system.  We've tried numerous times reporting the issue to ATT blocks, however the issue still exists and our users are getting frustrated.  Can you help please?   

 

This is the ATT error message from our email server.  We use Elastic Email as our Email service provider.  They believe you are blocking our domain for some reason, as they have already moved us to another ip. 

 

 

Here's an example of the error we are getting:

 

553 5.3.0 alph154 DNSBL:RBL 521<64.159.65.119 >_is_blocked.For information send an email to abuse_rbl@abuse-att.net

 

This affects most of the IPs in our netblock (64.159.65.0/24) but not all.  

 

 

We've reported this many times now and gotten no reply. It's been over a month.  We've gone through every remediation step listed here:

 

http://rbl.att.net/block_inquiry.html

 

Filled out the form here a number of times:

 

http://rbl.att.net/cgi-bin/rbl/block_admin.cgi

 

We emailed:

 

abuse_rbl@abuse-att.net

 

I tried this form as well:

 

http://rbl.att.net/end_user_request2.html

 

Any help would be much appreciated!

 

Thanks

 

Dan

Re: Blacklist Removal

We had a similar problem and when we checked independent blacklists it said we were clear.

Can you help us resolve the issue?

Re: AT

 

 

 

I'm having the same problem here.  Seems like AT&T has blocked all IP addresses within the Amazon Web Services (AWS) IP range (which is huge) and are unblocking them one at a time.       

 

Please unblock the following IP addresses.
34.201.201.222

34.201.226.219

52.86.92.90

 

I've emailed the abuse_rbl@abuse-att.net address several times with all requested info and have heard not a single response.  Most of my users are bailing from AT&T/SBCGlobal/PacBell over this and getting email addresses elsewhere (gmail/yahoo, etc). 

 

Thank you.

Re: AT

Our company is having the same issue

 

We are trying to email two customers at Prodigy.net and Sbcglobal.net and they keep getting bounced back to us with the following error,

 

host ff-ip4-mx-vip1.prodigy.net[144.160.159.21] said: 553 5.3.0 flph823 DNSBL:RBL 521< 54.219.188.4 >_is_blocked.For assistance forward this email to abuse_rbl@abuse-att.net (in reply to MAIL FROM command)

 

 

 

I have checked all 3 of our external IP addresses 75.145.148.136/137/138 against multiple blacklist sites and everything comes back clean.

Re: AT

AT&T also blocked our IP 54.156.205.252, which is definitely an IP with good reputation. Our clients are constantly complaining their email rejection. Error message saying:

553 5.3.0 alpd678 DNSBL:RBL 521< 54.156.205.252 >_is_blocked.For assistance forward this email to abuse_rbl@abuse-att.net (in reply to MAIL FROM command))

 

Please help to get it unblocked.

Much appreciated.

Re: Request unblock IP

Re: Request unblock IP

I got mine resolved! Here's what I did. I set up an alias in our postfix admin to forward messages sent to our return-path address to my own mailbox. I've had to wade through a TON of undeliverable reports the last few days, but I set up a rule in Outlook to handle specific ones according to this criteria:

...message arrives

  From Mail Delivery System

     and sent to <return-path>

     and with "forward this email to abuse_rbl@abuse-att.net" in the body

   forward it to abuse_rbl@abuse-att.net

 

In 3 days that rule forwarded 135 messages. Smiley Happy

Today, in received several messages in response to the last batch of them that said:

This issue appears to have been resolved. Please try resending your message and if you experience a problem reply to this message with the current non-delivery report.
Regards,

AT&T Postmaster
Chief Security Organization
abuse_rbl@abuse-att.net
https://www.att.com/postmaster/

So, perhaps this can help the rest of you out by copying the auto-response rule I used?

Re: blacklist removal assistance

Hi, 

 

I have the same problem and it has been 4 days now with no resolution. AT&T and our customers are not getting important emails!

 

We are a communication website for schools and parents don't get their emails (just at&t domains). We are doing the same thing for 10 years and been blocked once many years ago. Back then, it took less than 48 hours to resolve but now I already sent two emails to the abuse-rbl address with no resolution. 

 

Is there anything else we can do? Should we recommend people to switch email provider? 

 

Any help would be appreciated, 

Yuval

Re: Blacklist Removal

I have sent several emails over the course of two months about my server to abuse_rbl@abuse-att.net.  No change.

 

Based on the other replies as well over the course of years, it is time to fire the people responding to this email address.

 

The only solution is to find more public ways to embarrass ATT into acting on my issue and fixing that group.

I think it is time also for me to stop being an ATT customer.

Re: Blocked Domain, Email or IP address Questions and Discussion

Hi John, I tried sending you a PM, but it's saying your account doesn't allow private messages.

 

We have the same issue as other people on this forum. When we send email to any account at att.net, sbcglobal.net, or bellsouth.net, the emails are being blocked with the following error message:

 

553 5.3.0 alph155 DNSBL:RBL 521<ip_address>_is_blocked. For assistance forward this email to abuse_rbl@abuse-att.net (in reply to MAIL FROM command))

 

Both of our IPs  are associated with  our  domain via  a reverse DNS lookup, and I've checked both IPs on https://www.dnsbl.info/ and verified that neither appears on any black list.

 

Would you be able to help if I sent you the IP address info?

 

Thanks,

Russell

Re: Blocked Domain, Email or IP address Questions and Discussion

We’re also receiving the error on my personal email server. All attempts to email the address in the block message are rejected. Really?!

Re: Blocked Domain, Email or IP address Questions and Discussion

You are blocking people in my boyscout troop email list. I have sent 4 emails asking to be unblocked - nothing.  We are a small group of people that are the only ones who use this IP address.  There is no reason to block it.   I can see from the thread above this is a futile attempt here - but I gotta try - so here is our plea for help: 

 

PLEASE UNBLOCK OUR IP! 

 

Dec  9 22:38:20 mail postfix/smtp[29639]: 0742F7AD0A: to=<xxxxx@sbcglobal.net>, relay=al-ip4-mx-vip2.prodigy.net[144.160.235.144]:25, delay=2, delays=0.04/0.02/1.8/0.07, dsn=5.3.0, status=bounced (host al-ip4-mx-vip2.prodigy.net[144.160.235.144] said: 553 5.3.0 alph158 DNSBL:ATTRBL 521< 173.255.251.42 >_is_blocked.For assistance forward this email to abuse_rbl@abuse-att.net (in reply to MAIL FROM command)) 

 

Thank You.
