I am having a problem with my hosting co godaddy blocking the auto generated email from the scheduled upcp. All my alerts are sent to an email account not on the local server. GoDaddy monitor all outbound emails via the mail transport delivery set in exim conf. General SMTP traffic is blocked and must use their transport. Recently the log file generated from upcp script has been refused connection to their transport. It sits in my mail que till it expires. It seems the email is being flagged for some reason but not sure why yet. Other generated emails by cron are passed through no problem. What I would like to do is have the text of the email zipped up as an attachment before it sends. I can't find where the follow up actions are being called from to email the log after upcp runs. I'm not seeing it in the crontab. Anyone have any idea where this is at or what it's script name is. Thanks. jack

nevermind... didn't realize is was cron itself that was mailing the output from the upcp job. thought it was a post script.

httpupdate.cpanel.net in SBL IP 208.82.118.100

Got an email from godaddy today. They say one of the IPs that belong to httpupdate.cpanel.net is listed in the SBL. This is why the log file from upcp is being rejected because of the url links in the message body resolv to a blocked IP. From the IP list I pulled up, this IP is listed in the SBL: 208.82.118.100
.httpupdate.cpanel.net 1 A 208.82.118.100 300s
