I misworded that. I didn't mean to imply he was engaging in any of those 
activities. Only that anyone doing so using a mail domain or public IP could 
get the domain or IP blacklisted. I had people at a large Church I used to work 
for using p2p to get hi def versions of all the movies and music they wanted, 
AND were SHARING it with others. A cease and desist letter was not sent to us, 
but rather to our ISP telling them that unless the ISP shut US down, they would 
blacklist the ENTIRE ISP! Talk about digital vigilantes. 

Fortunately, I was able to find and eliminate the culprits and prove to the ISP 
and the legal entities involved that I had done so, and they relented.

Blacklisting would not be inappropriate if we lived in a world where 
every domain had a unique IP.  But that's not the world we live in.


Hundreds of millions of domains are hosted on shared servers, and most 
do not have a unique IP.


So it doesn't matter whether or not you personally engage in any of 
those nefarious activities.


Under the collective punishment regime of digital vigilantes, accounts 
you have no control over will be used against you.

This smells like the early internet when SMTP servers were all open. There was 
a black list called ORBS that listed you if you did not comply and lock down 
your SMTP server. They stated that they couldn't be successfully sued and if 
you tried they threatened to leave you on the black list forever. Different but 
the same.

I have no tolerance for spammers/hackers. White collar crime should be 
prosecuted and penalties should be draconian so the rest of us don't caught up 
in the net of scatter-shot lockdowns.

Or get a dedicated IP for your mail server, or become a mail admin and set up 
your own system for handling mail, or

The other solution is to shut down vigilantism.

Collective punishment is recognized by the Universal Declaration of Human 
Rights as flat-out wrong.  Why do we tolerate it in cyberspace with spam 
vigilantes?

I respect the difficulty of fighting spam, but knocking hundreds of legitimate 
accounts offline because one user of a machine is criminal is like shooting up 
a an entire neighborhood of families to get one bank robber.

I've tried contacting some of the vigilante spam fighters to get white listed, 
with varying results. Many respond to such requests with a presumption of 
guilt, making it not only unnecessarily difficult to resolve the issue, but 
just plain rude as well.

IP whitelisting must be made simple and straightforward.  Vigilantes should 
recognize that it's far better to let a spammer slip through the prevention 
system than to risk preventing legitimate people from conducting their business 
through email.

But they don't.

So we need to take away their ropes and their hangin' trees, and turn their 
zeal down a few notches to rejoin a fair and just society.

Jim,

it could be that the ip address of Sage (50.28.39.1) or maybe a whole range of 
ip addresses is/are blocked by Microsoft´s Email servers, because of a bad 
reputation. This mostly happens when the server was used for sending out Spam. 
This could happen, if the server is a shared systen which is uses by hundreds 
of customers. This could also happen by error.
The exact reason could be seen in the failure e-mail you should have received.

"host mx2.hotmail.com [207.46.8.199] said: 550 SC-001 
(BAY004-MC6F18) Unfortunately, messages from x.x.x.x weren't sent. Please 
contact your Internet service provider since part of their network is on our 
block list. You can also refer your provider to 
mail.live.com/mail/troubleshooting.aspx 
. (in reply to MAIL FROM 
command)"

Currently there is nothing you can do, if the ip addresses are blocked.  Robin 
could use  the Microsoft Blacklisting Form at
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/getsupport?oaspworkflow=start_1.0.0.0=capsub=edfsmsbl3
 

to ask for removal of the ips.

There are other providers, like Hostm, who offer among other features like 
preinstalled LivecodeServer als an optional Dedicated Outgoing Mail IP for 
their Webhosting accounts . This ip then is only for your account and is used 
for your email transmissions.
So there is no risk that Spam activities of other customers will block your 
outgoing emails.

Regards,
Matthias
