Honestly I doubt we are blasting Road Runner that hard. When I look thru the
log files it really does not look that bad except for on the 19th. So I
would have to say this is not how they have chosen to block me.

Road Runner utilizes a volume based spam block from my understanding. If you
send over X amount of email in Y amount of time, they block you. You need to
create a rule that staggers the number of messages you send to all rr.com
domains so as to not trigger the threshold and become blocked. See here for
the limits: http://security.rr.com/spam.htm#ratelimit

Here's a link to get unblocked: http://security.rr.com/mail_blocks.htm

Good luck.

Greetings all,  I am having a bit of trouble with Road Runner, we have been
blocked repeatedly for email that I believe to have been sent out on the
19th.  I have about 50,000 customers sitting behind this old mail server
currently.  I have emailed back in forth with someone from roadrunner and
when he sends me back the spam example it is always from the 19th.



So far from the spam sent out on that day we have been blocked 5 times.



Does anyone have a contact for Road Runner that I might be able to have.



Thanks,
