    I had a client's email compromised on Saturday. It happens, usually when they don't use stron passwords, but I suppose it could happen other ways. Anyway, after I saw all the spam being spewed through the server I changed the password and the spam stopped. I also deleted tons of spam waiting to go out. But the damage had been done and the IP got put on RBLs. It was removed from most of them within a couple hours and others in a day. A few I had to manually request removal and have been fairly successful, though Verizon says it could up to 72 hours!

    However, one, Proof Point has not responded, nor removed the IP. I have made two requests. Apparently they are notorious for not removing IPs.

    The problem is Apple doesn't want to stop using them.

    I finally did get some response from them by contacting them directly through their Facebook page via Messenger. They removed my IP. I asked if this was the best way to contact them. But they said, no use the form at.

    Anyway, I post this mostly just for information in case anyone else runs in to such an issue.

    Thank you for taking the time to report your experience with removal from that specific blacklist.
