A lot of RBL checkers online provide the link back to the body that is blocking it.

Try this one, past in the details and then see if there is a link to the blocking blody.

if there is no link, just google the body that has blocked it to look for contact details and contact them directly.

Here is another good site. Enter the internet IP address of your mail server and it will check blacklists.

This is saying you don't have a reverse dns entry... you need to call your internet provider (charter) and ask them:  please assign me a reverse dns entry such that 66.188.39.101 reverses to (whatever your mx record is, mail,yourdomain.com)

Correct assuming mx record is set to your email server and not some third party spam filtering solution. Also try telneting on port 25 from your email server to the server that is blocking you and see what error message you get.

The odd thing is that 66.188.39.101 is not our mail server 66.188.39.99 is.  So I don't know why that was showing in the log.

Do you have an edgetransport server that uses that address ? Or it is possible that depending on how your firewall is setup that is the external IP of the mailserver for outgoing.

We do have an edgetrasport server but it uses 66.188.39.99.  After double checking 66.188.39.101 is not in our firewall either nor is anything pointing to it.

Don't lose your head updating email signatures!

Do your end users still have the wrong email signature? Do email signature updates bore you or fill you with a sense of dread? You can make this a whole lot easier on yourself by trusting an Exclaimer email signature management solution. Over 50 million users do...so should you!

66.188.39.101 is on a blacklist. Can you go to http://www.ipchicken.com/ or similar page from the mail server and the edgeserver and let me know what they are showing for ip address.

Yeah it says 66.188.39.101 but that is the internet.  I have our mx, reverse dns, and 66.188.39.99 pointing to our mail server.

Well it thats what it says than that is the IP other servers see for your outgoing mail. Either change the IP or get it off the 2 blacklists.

yeah you have a router misconfiguration -

your router is forwarding ports to your mail server at the 39.99 address, but your mail server is going out to the world as .101

options:
1. configure your router for one-to-one nat so the mail server leaves as 38.99
2. or, configure your router to pass 25/443/110/80 to your mail server on .101, then change your public reverse dns, mx, a to match
3. get 101 off the blacklist, AND create a reverse dns entry for .101 and .99 - they can be the same name
