Vodafone don't want my complaint via Google
My latest Blackberry bill from Vodafone was twice the usual amount. I had that sinking feeling that I would wait on a customer care line for ages, but was relieved to find an email address on the bill. Here's the automatic reply:
This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification
Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently: email@example.com
Technical details of permanent failure:PERM_FAILURE: SMTP Error (state 8): 550 5.7.1 Mail from 126.96.36.199 refused - see http://www.dnsbl.sorbs.net/
Well, I did go see that link and it told me that my message was coming from a mail server suspected of sending spam. Just to be sure, I did a reverse DNS on that IP address:
188.8.131.52 resolves to"hu-out-0102.google.com"
Top Level Domain: "google.com"
Does this mean that Google is being tagged as a spammer? Whatever it means, Vodafone won't accept my mail from a Gmail account. Now, who's being evil here?
