Thanks for the tip Pedro. It seems that we were blocked because of some spam that was relayed through us back in early September. I do not know if this was because our spam filter was not working at the time or if it was because of a small amount of spam that was relayed (I remind you that our system DOES relay some spam through, until a pattern is detected in the mail relaying or until an address is permanently blocked). Anyway, I've requested from MAPS the removal of our address from the RBL and offered to send them the scripts were using for stopping spam. C U! -- Mario Valente
