| | Could not send BIS email tonight ... RIM servers blacklisted!!
Please Login to Remove!
I have a non-integrated/BIS email.
I tried sending some email while on the road tonight.
Looks like some of RIMs servers had been added to the CBL Blacklist (cbl-dot-abuseat-dot-org)
They were 188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11.
The SPAMHAUS block list (www-dot-spamhaus-dot-org) is a very widely used RBL blocking list and incorporates the CBL Blacklist.
So any emails I sent to ISPs that use the Spamhaus list - were bouncing back.
It looks like someone has manually removed them now - but its an automated blacklist; so presumably they could get back on.
Is there any way to get this info to RIM - I called Rogers (my carrier) and although they were helpful - they just kept telling me it couldn't happen; that RIM was super-secure and used by government.
I tried explaining to them that that didn't have anything to do with spam.
For a start - to be 'ultra-secure', you need a BES configuration.
and while BIS may be secure - secure doesn't have anything to do with spam.
I could spam you here and now if I wanted to, using my Blackberry.
Anyone else have any problem this evening?
