Blocked incoming email

Hi, hoping someone could help me (a non tech person) with this.  I'm not getting emails from my clients who have previously been able to email me OK.  Apparently they are getting Mail Delivery Failure messages since last week from me.  It does seem its intermittent though.

Could anyone let me know how I can resolve this please - in simple terms. 

Thanks.

Re: Blocked incoming email

Hi Finizzy, 

Thanks for your post and welcome to our community. 

Sorry you're having some issues with incoming emails, this isn't good. 

 

Is this happening with all clients emailing you? 

Do you know if they're emailing you from different email providers or all the same?

 

Does your mailbox have space for new emails? 

Let us know and we'll see how we can help further.

Re: Blocked incoming email

Hi

Thanks for responding. As far I know its only one company that is emailing me and they are bouncing so assume they are using the same email provider each time.

My mailbox has loads of room for new emails.

Re: Blocked incoming email

You should tell the sender that their sending IP address is on a well-respected blacklist -

https://mxtoolbox.com/SuperTool.aspx?action=blacklist%3a188.121.43.196&run=toolpage -

and that is why VM has rejected emails from that IP address.

The sender needs to talk to their web host.

Re: Blocked incoming email

Thanks BillC45,

I've raised the issue with the people who are sending me the emails.  Would you know why some get through and some don't?  I'd assume that if its on a blacklisted I wouldn't get any, i.e. Virgin would stop all from this IP address.

As a matter of interest how does a company get on the blacklist do you know?  I've been working with them for sometime and had no problems.  They did have some issues with email hosting a month or so ago (I wasn't involved) but know they used the same host company to resolve the issues.

Thanks in advance.

Finizzy.

Re: Blocked incoming email

A few more thoughts.

This problem lies fairly and squarely with the hosting company. I suspect they are re-sending the emails from your sender which means that at your end they appear to come from an IP address owned by the host.

Read this for some background about the ins and outs of blacklisting -

https://www.fasthosts.co.uk/blog/why-do-ip-addresses-get-blacklisted-2/#:~:text=Blacklistings%20are%....

Like all significant email handling systems the hosting company will have a number of servers in their setup – not just one – each with their own unique IP address. At any point in time one or more of their sending servers could be on a blacklist, so they might re-direct all outgoing traffic from the blacklisted server to their other ones whilst they apply for removal of of the block. The end-user view of this can look like – fails today/works tomorrow/fails the next day….etc etc because the sending server can change on a daily basis in the host service.
