gmail blocking server


rolo2912

Question

Just wondering, is anyone else experiencing the same problem with gmail.com ?

Is there any way to tell google to get the IP of the blacklist ?

 

Googles bounce message has the following included :

 

550-5.7.1 [xx.xxx.xxx.xxx 1]

 

xx = Server IP, but why to they add the 1 ?

 

Googleing the problem is just coming up with there policy and a lot of people

complaining :-)

Google's rate limiters are fairly conservative and have a very low false-positive rate even for busy peers. If connections from your IP address get bounced with a bulk policy warning, you should urgently review if your machine has been rooted recently and is actually sending out spam.

 

If you can rule that out and are sending bulk e-mail to googlemail, you might wanna put a rate limit in to not annoy their mail servers.

Thank you for your response.

 

I suppose the problem was originally that one user had a catch-all --> forward gmail. This was switched off more than a month ago.

Ever since the logfiles (Logwatch : Sent via SMTP ) show max 1 - 2 mails send out to @gmail.com (that bounce anyway).

I have to assume that Logwatch is reporting all outgoing emails from the server, or do I miss something here ?

 

How would I put a rate limit in ?
