Well, hm, I think you miss the point. We can easily "disconnect" ORBS
(i.e. *we* can stop sending queries to them and effectively ignore
what the old site is up to) B U T we can not prevent *others* from
still querying them and thus block *our* mail to these "others".

This is exactly what can be expected when there is some centralized
mail-blocking/anti-spam service - it is closed down but the info it
had still persist and now noone can remove that faulty info. We will
be happy to close any open relay we happen to have, but we need to
know why it's considered open.

And, sigh,
provides more text but still no help on what's considered wrong at
out site.

My 0.1 ECU suggestion is that someone should clear the entire zone, rather than having it active and faulty.
If this "someone" reads, please act, if anyone else knows who to
forward to, please do so. Many thanks in advance.

Then, as I said above, we'll be happy to fix whatever open relays we
have - and trust me, my pair of scissors will not hestitate...
