      Hi KJ,

      That's the funny thing, I'm using sbl-xbl spamhaus as well as
      spamcop.net but it wasn't blocked, I've now changed it to zen, I'm not

        The IP is not listed on SBL and was only listed on CBL (ergo XBL) at
        2009-06-01 14:00 GMT; you received it before then. If you had been using
        PBL (or better, Zen), then it might've been blocked.
