Can't receive e-mail - 451 Blocked

If someone is trying to send you an e-mail and they receive this error message:

451 Blocked - see

it means that their IP address has been designated as a "spammer".

To receive e-mail from them, please follow these directions:

1) They should go to the website address given in the e-mail and follow the directions on the website.

2) Typically, this means they can request to "de-list" their IP address from the blacklists so that they can start to send freely again.

3) Also note, that the IP address is listed because their computer (or a computer on their network) is sending out spam.  If they request to be de-listed and they start to spam again, de-listing in the future may be problematic.

Once they have successfully de-listed themselves, they should be able to send you e-mails easily.

Can Maknet disable this system?
We currently use an anti-spam listing method called that tracks offending IP addresses.  Because of this system, we prevent about 1,000,000 spam per week.  We understand that this system may cause problems, however, computers listed on the blacklist are there for a reason - they are spamming out thousands of spam per day.

Can Maknet make an exception and disable this system just for my client?
Unfortunately, there is no easy way to do this.  We use an "automated" system so they are on the list because they are, indeed, one of the people that "spam" emails.

Typically, this is caused by a virus or a trojan on their computer and they don't know they are sending out spam.  Hopefully this warning message can help them to clean up their computer and slow the spread of spam on the Internet.
