I send many emails out for two societies (both charities) and now I find that my messages are blocked by receivers due to  spam.dnsbl. How do I overcome this problem.

    Accepted Solution

    First off, sending many e-mails out unsolicited to people, even if you are a charity, is spam. That said you can ask the blacklist provider to remove you from the blacklist, this is often a long and tedious process to ensure that spammers can't just arbitrarily request themselves to be removed.
