email blocked

A friend is unable to send emails - she's getting this message from Outlook (actually, it's Entourage, she's on a Mac): "mail blocked http cbi [email protected]/lookup.cgi ip=" (not quite sure of any slashes etc as she's reporting it over the phone).

She's on a Mac so I doubt it's spyware - any thoughts?

That message is an indicator the ISP has fallen into one of the spam filtering lists in use. Your friend should contact her mail provider.

Her mail provider is different to her ISP, Al94 - which one should she talk to?

Kate, I'm not 100% sure but think she needs to talk to her mail provider

thanks, Al94 - she uses the same webhosting/mail service as I do and I'm having no problems; in fact I've already emailed them about her problem. I'll suggest she also talks to Bulldog, her ISP.

If anyone else has further thoughts I'd be grateful ...

It turns out that my friend had been allocated an ip address by her isp that had been used by a spammer and so her mail was being blocked. That's something I guess I knew theoretically could happen but had never actually seen. The joys of dynamic ip addresses!

Glad you got it sorted - we are all constantly on a learning curve!
