Some of our hosts where inserted in this list at

If someone send a report to them that you are relaying they will
investigate that and add you to the list without notice.

When you notice that you are on the list the trouble begins..
At least at the time we where there. We couldn't get any complete
mail's with headers that proved that we where relaying ang how the
relayed mail was relayed..

They however promised to improve this...
