Blocked by ORDB

Well this is a barrel of laughs…

The problem is that the ORDB blacklist (which was decommissioned on Dec 18 2006) has been reactivated, but in such a way that it returns a positive match for every query. The operators have done this in order to prompt people who were still using the list to remove it from their configuration.

At the moment this is effecting our exchange servers, and it’s unclear if this is a legacy smtp event or part of the anti spam software…

Everything is being bounced, needless to say I can tell you working for a company that has over a million emails a day this is NOT GOOD!

If your clients are receiving bounce backs I suggest you contact them immediately, and inform them of the situation.

ORDB SORT YOUR ACT OUT!

I will update as I find a workaround!

UPDATE!!!!
