Hi Experts,

I got a user (company owner) complaining about some emails not getting delivered to his mailbox.

I made 2 tests - one internal and one external, and both got into his mailbox.

Some hours later he still complained about the same problem. I decided to do the same test and for my surprise the external email was rejected:

Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:

Technical details of permanent failure:
Google tried to deliver your message, but it was rejected by the recipient domain. We recommend contacting the other email provider for further information about the cause of this error. The error that the other server returned was: 550 550 5.7.1 Recipient not authorized, your IP has been found on a block list (state 13).

As the error stamp, i guess it was the exchange anti spam, "ip block list provider" . Am I right?

How can I track emails that are been rejected from my Exchange?

Some tips to set a correct anti-spam configuration? I mean, i want a "light" configuration... i prefer that some spam get into my organization than legitime email get rejected.
