That's a bit like requesting contact from someone on Mars. APEWS (and  
*PEWS variations) are 'home-brew DNSBLs' run by a handful of kids  
from bedrooms and attics, with no clue or care. More than half the  
world is listed by these tiny DNSBLs and normally nobody ever  
notices, because nobody uses *PEWS lists except the odd guy running a  
home mail server for him, the wife and 4 cats. You only noticed  
because someone told you to go and look, right?

There is not a single ISP or production mail server anywhere in the  
world using APEWS. If you're 'listed' in any *PEWS list, its having  
no effect on your mail at all. Ignore it.
