When all it says is, "spam-sending trojan, malicious link, or some type of
botnet", it's not a lot to go on. I've seen examples where their lookup
tool provides more details, but in this case, the response is generic.

In fact, usually when this happens to a customer, they're able to figure
out the problem without a lot of fuss and keep it from happening again.
Sometimes we have to help them, but it's always something fairly obvious.
It's only in this one case that we're struggling to identify the cause.

Thank you to those that pointed out their email address on the FAQ page.
How I managed to read through there and miss it, I'll never know.
