Have you checked your IP address in the database. It sounds like you are using a dynamic IP from your ISP rather than a static IP address and that this address or address range my be on the database that the recipient end is using for their SBL.

You can use from your server to find it if you are not sure.

Hi mass2612,

I'm using static IP and I've checked the IP address and range against spamhaus and it is not listed.  My ISP is BT Internet and I've had the service with the same IP's for 2 years or so.  I've several implementations of SBS set-up the same with no apparent issues, really strange.

Hi mass2612,
You were right, I'd replaced the Cisco router and not set a static IP on the dialer and as a result the router was picking up a dynamic IP address.  All sorted, thanks for your help, was having a bad day :-)
