Comcast IP is listed in APEWS RBL Database

For some reason my Comcast IP at my office is listed in the remote blacklist database.

I dont do much with this block of IP's. No smtp traffic. Just web traffic from about 6 users at the office

Any idea how i ended up here and/or how I can be removed from here?

I wouldn't worry if you don't do any SMTP.  That list is a generic blocklist which includes IPs which are commonly assigned dynamically to users (typically DSL or home cable broadband for example).

The aim of the list is to notify which IP addresses are not generally used for legitimate SMTP servers.  Generally legitimate SMTP servers won't be hosted on home broadband connections.

The weird thing is that my IP - which I blacked out in the jpeg - is completely different than the IP i did not black out.

Well, your IP is different but within the subnets probably --

Did you check the FAQ ?  Never ran across this list, an not sure how widely it's used, but it seems to apply to filtering incoming SMTP from the IP block based on the name.
