We use mailchimp in order to abide by anti-spamming laws. We use this to send out mass mailing to our current customers about updates and new products. We are currently being blacklisted by postini, greylist by spam assassin. We were blocked by a couple others that I was able to get us removed after filling out forms and putting in requests but cant seem to find a way with Postini and Spam assassin. How can I get us removed from these two. Attached is the Mailchimp data sent on the blacklist test.

SpamAssasin is a tool
URIBL it uses contains URLs peer-marked as SPAM, only way out is to not send a SPAM.
Probably it will not complain if you stop tracking user clicks from the mail.

For Postini I am not sure there is much you can do.  The user of the Postini service decides how aggressive they want to be with the service.  If what you are providing/selling looks like a money making/ get rich, it will flag it as such.  
We recently "went Google" and found that Postini is much more aggressive and quarantined mail that was not in the past.  For most of my users this is a welcome change.  There are only a few that we backed off the settings to block less.
Bottom line is there is nothing you can do to makes sure that your mail never gets blocked by Postini.  They will rate the email content but the client ultimately decides if your mail will be blocked.

gheist,
I did not understand your response... could you break that down a little more for me.

steveoskh,
in my research I came across a lot of what you explained and was afraid of that. Thanks for the confirmation.
