...which may not be the real problem. My IP,, is currently listed in

As a Frontier ISP customer I currently have the above dynamic IP address at my private residence. I forced an IP address change and the problem stayed the same. I started researching the problem when some of my email messages were not delivered. They currently are returned from:

My domain,, is hosted (separate domain registrar and web/mail host) and I have a shared IP address, /, which is not on any black list. They automatically set up an SPF that points to / which is not on a black list.

I use a Windows 10 desktop client, Thunderbird, and these messages get returned. Even if I use the host provided webmail (with the spf and dkim records) behind the above IP address these messages get returned.

One other piece of information...until recently I was maintaining/running a web/mail server for the domain in my residence. I know there's a lot of information here. Any advice on how to get to a point where all my messages once again get delivered?

Thanks, Jim

It's normal for home IP addresses to be listed with SPFBL. It's often basically saying, "there doesn't appear to be a mail server here". And since it's your home IP address, and not your domain's mail server IP address, that's OK -- and won't have any impact on you.

What is the error message that you are seeing when those emails are returned as undeliverable?

If you cannot access a website it's not because of the SPFBL blacklist. That's not what it's used for. If you are having a problem accessing a website it's something else.

What is the website, what is the exact error message that you are seeing, and what is your IP address?
