Hi Experts,
been having some email issues recently and after looking into it, it appears that some german site has blacklisted our ISP  and/or our domain.
After looking at their site 'UCEPROTECTL3'   ( http://www.uceprotect.net )  looks as if this site is not company based, but some donkey's trying to scam money for delisting....

anyway, not sure if this is the root cause of some of my problems because my mail server not listed on any other blacklists,  but curious if anyone else has ever dealt w/ these folks and how to get them to remove from blacklist.

Below is the snippet from their website after doing a search on my mail server IP address.
THIS INFO IS FOR ENDUSERS. IF YOU ARE PROVIDER PLEASE TEST ASN INSTEAD

What means listed at UCEPROTECT-Level 3?

GAME OVER. We and our users have seen enough spam and heared all possible excusions why some lazy providers think to be not responsible for what their customers are doing.
 

We are not just another blacklist. We really know better. Spam is always a problem tolerated by the provider.
 

We have very bad news for you: It seems you have chosen the wrong provider.

Your IP 'My IP Address' was NOT part of a spamrun, but your provider seems to believe that spam is what the internet was made for.

By tolerating your provider doesn't care about spammers you are also supporting the global spam.

If all people would boycott spammerhaevens, spam-friendly providers wouldn't even exist.
 

Please send a compliant to your provider and request him to fix this problem immediatly.

Think about this: You pay him for, that you can use the internet without problems.
 

If he ignores your complaint or claims he can't do anything, you should consider to change your provider.

Don't accept to be fooled. If your provider really wants to stop spam he would install preventive measures.
 

This 4 little steps would make the difference - and they can be done in less than one hour.
 

Can't you make an exception for me?

We never make exceptions. Requests are futile. Only your provider can fix this problem.
 

How can my providers total ip-space be removed from UCEPROTECT-Level 3?

After your provider has fixed his problems, the UCEPROTECT-Level 3 listing will be removed automatically and free of charge as soon as the causal Level 1 listings will expire. Every IP listed at Level 1 expires 7 days after we have seen the last abusive action coming from it.

If your provider don't want to wait for free expiration, he can optionally do Expressdelisting, which is charged a total of 250 EURO.

That is a huge discount compared to our charges for Level 2 or even Level 1 expressdelistings.

It is necessary that problems are fixed in first place, otherwise your providers complete IP-space might end up in Level 3 again within a short timeframe.

BTW - the way I read it is that these folks are scammers that prey on smaller ISPs.  Haven't seen any references of folks who have dealt with them and done so successfully.

Hi Michko,
yeah, that's what I took from it too. and thanks for that other blog link, that is exactly what i was dealing with.... and as i mentioned earlier, i don't even think they're technically used by spam devices as part of the blacklist check.. normally the spamhaus / sorbs / etc.. are the ones built into devices like barracuda's & such...

so i'll disregard for now and assume some of the problems are dealing more directly with Exchange or dns.. i was just curious when i saw it...
so let those guys prey on someone else.... or as Conan O'Brien would say:
"DAS VOOT RI SCHLAGEN TOOTEN!!!"......     ;-)
