My exchange 2000 server was an open relay on ordb.org and has since been resolved. However we can't seem to get of the blacklist from dsbl.org. When I try to remove from their black list I get the following:
"Your server seems to believe it needs to relay for local addresses. This does NOT mean that it is closed to relaying, just that it is broken and does not accept and deliver local mail, albeit with a confusing error message. "

Did you reboot your server or restart the services?

Telnet to your Exchange 2000 server and try to send email to different domain than yours.
You should see the message regarding the relay.

I believe I'm on the way to being removed from the blacklist. It appears that there's a procedure to follow to create postmaster@[ip]. dsbl.org was rejecting the removal request because postmaster@[ip] was not working properly.

Excellent instructions for creating postmaster@[ip] can be found under article "Exchange 2000 postmaster@ip and abuse@ip mailboxes

I'm new to EE so I'm not sure if I should be awarding points for 'effort'?......

Thanks much
