I am testing an email-to-sms solution with my phone. This will be used with several organizations looking to easily send out texts to their peers. My domain is [removed]
I simply cannot send texts anymore. I think the verizon wireless email-to-sms gateway put me on their black list. Help!
I have the following postfix error with the important part BOLD:
Mar 3 08:21:31 localhost postfix/error: 26A7923B2D: to= (removed), relay=none, delay=1068, delays=1068/0.31/0/0, dsn=4.\
0.0, status=deferred (delivery temporarily suspended: host smtp.vzwpix.com[18.104.22.168] refused to talk to me: 554 njbrspamp5.vtext.com)

This is not a good idea.
Even if legitimate Verizon frowns on such sending as people can and do report them.
Text messaging is not meant for text flooding.
I think I have the answer now.
Verizon support told me the gateway blacklists any domain sending to more than 10 devices (that is me)
They let me put in a trouble ticket to deblacklist me.
I was told they allow businesses to buy more capability on this gateway. I have spent 5 hours talking to Verizon trying to find someone to talk to about expanding my usage of the gateway. So far I have no found anyone
You will not get anywhere.
Verizon is one of the leaders in blacklisting any type of spam and spammer operations.
Even if they sell you a product that allows the use, the first complaint sent to them knocks you off the service and no refunds.
Just forget about using the text service for your venture.
I am somewhat offended by the comments suggesting you are a spammer.
We too have had this problem and it has made pager-duty [removal required by the Verizon Wireless Terms of Service] because we don't get alerts in a timely fashion, or if at all. And well known "apps" don't work any better. Their option for "immediate notification" is SMS.
I am paying for unlimited talk/text, perhaps this is a legal matter.
