Hi all,

for some reason when I use my principal email address sometimes to certain users I can neither send nor receive any mail from them. It seems that my email is on some blacklist somewhere. In such cases what does one do?

thanks in advance

Normally it's servers that are on blacklists.  You can check here http://mxtoolbox.com/ to see if your server is on a blacklist.

It is possible your ISP gave you an IP from a range that had been blocked previously. That happened to me (some years back) so that I was unable to send/receive in some instances. It has long since been fixed.

You can also use MXTOOLBOX (above) to check your IP range.

Can you try the computer in a different network environment?

You'll need to find out your public IP address first (www.whatismyip.com), or at least the public IP address of the physical location of where your mail server resides.

Once you have the public IP address of your mail server you can check on MXToolBox as noted above: http://mxtoolbox.com/blacklists.aspx

While having your IP address on a blacklist would explain why you can't send out emails to certain addresses, it doesn't necessarily explain why you can't receive some emails.
