Why Is My IP Blacklisted?

Post by mvutech »

We have no mail server, and we are blacklisted on dnsbl.spfbl.net and sorbs.net. We can no longer access sites such as ebay.com or staples.com also the banking site used by our payroll dept. We get an Access Denied You don't have permission to access xxx on this server.

I am not sure if the blacklisting is what is causing this.

The SORBS and SPFBL blacklists are designed for mail server to mail server communication and not to filter access to websites. What is the specific error message you are seeing?
