Gmail IP block


Recently I noticed that all email sent to gmail users were undeliverable and after looking at mail logs noticed that gmail blocked the IP. The IP is in good standing after checking it on http://www.mxtoolbox.com and gmail is the only that recently blocked the IP although its been around for 8 months.

The notice in the mail log  Please_visit_http://www.google.com/mail/help/bulk_mail.html_to_review/550_5.7.1_our_ Bulk_Email_Senders_Guidelines.

How would I resolve this issue and have them unblock this IP?

From the webpage you refer to:
  Authentication & Identification

  To ensure that Gmail can identify you:

      * Use a consistent IP address to send bulk mail.
      * Keep valid reverse DNS records for the IP address(es) from which you send mail, pointing to your domain.
      * Use the same address in the 'From:' header on every bulk mail you send.

  We also recommend publishing an SPF record, and signing with DKIM or DomainKeys.

So start with complying to that. Also be compliant with the other parts on the page, but the bit stated above is explicitely concerned with ip-addresses.

If you are completely compliant there is a link at the bottom of that page "troubleshoot further". It will just take time to regain your reputation...
