My Domain is being email black listed by:
In particular I mean my DOMAIN server has be blacklisted and NOT the third party email provider that i use to send emails (Smart Host). The Smart Host is my mail server (My MX records point to the Smart Host only)...
HERE's why i'm confused...
DOMAIN SERVER = IP Address 123.xxx.xxx.111
MX SERVER = IP Address 321.xxx.xxx.222
Address 123.xxx.xxx.111 is BLACKLISTED...
Address 321.xxx.xxx.222 is NOT BLACKLISTED...
this makes NO sense to me.
1 more important factor:
- We have a mail CLIENT that runs on our Domain Server (IP 123.xxx.xxx.111) that SENDS EMAILS TO the SMTP server of our Smart Host (IP Address 321.xxx.xxx.222) just like you would configure Outlook to send emails through smtp.gmail.com or something on your desktop computer.
- I do know that when you view the header information of emails that the original computer's IP address shows up ALONG with the Smart Host's IP address... it's usually further down the list of "Received From" in the header...
- SO, another question would be, does that count? Do recipient email servers COUNT this email as coming from BOTH my Smart Host AND my Domain Host IP address?
See the attached file for an example of such a case. It's a mocked up email header of what this would look like if you sent an email this way to a ---@gmail.com address.
