Re: Can’t send e mails using wireless

This is going to sound counterintuitive but bear with me.

First of all on your wifi connection go here to get your public IP address:

https://whatismyipaddress.com/

Then take the address and go here

https://www.spamhaus.org/lookup/

Let us know what you find.  Please don't post your full public IP address on here.

Re: Can’t send e mails using wireless

Thanks.  Told me that my address is listed on CSS and XBL but not on others

Re: Can’t send e mails using wireless

Actually you SHOULD be listed on the PBL as well (that one's normal for all residential connections)

If you're on the CSS then spam has been seen coming from your public IP address.  Have a read of my post here in order to locate the offending device.
