Your mail is being rejected by my mail server because the IP from which 
your mail originates is listed in's SBL-XBL, which in turn
gets its listing from the CBL (Composite Blocking List). The address
is (, which is the primary MX for

I looked at the CBL FAQ (, and what I get
from reading it (the third question, specifically), is that IPs get into
the CBL due to security issues (open relays, viruses, trojans), not for
spamming. I did a relay test on your mail server
(, and it appears not to be an open relay.

Hopefully this is a transient thing. What has your ISP said, JJ? Also,

permitting mail from you on my end won't help much...)

Other conquests:

I believe that Austria conquers Posen (from Poland), and that I conquer
Palestine. So +1PP for Austria and Russia, -1PP for Prussia and Turkey.
