Unable to whitelist IP/domain

Hi,

Hopefully this post gets seen by Verizon support or a Verizon employee...

I administer an email server for a company that is having issues sending to a verizon.net email address, the NDR report specifies that our IP has been blacklisted with Verizon.

Given that we are not listed on any RBL's, have a separate 1-1 NAT for our email traffic, and have a valid RDNS record, I assume this was just a mistake.

So I submitted a whitelist request at:

http://my.verizon.com/micro/whitelist/RequestForm.aspx?id=isp

and get a response that our IP will not be whitelisted...the exact message is:

"Your IP has been blocked because of spam issues or because your ISP indicates that it is dynamically assigned

 No Reverse Hostname associated with your IP address."

We have a static address with Time Warner, an actice/valid RDNS/PTR record resolving to our domain's MX record IP, and have never had any sort or spam issue.  Resubmitting the form gets the same canned response.  I tried replying to the rejection email but have not heard back and I'm not even sure if whitelist@verizononline.net is a monitored email address.

I have seen this issue resolved on this forum in this post:

http://forums.verizon.com/t5/Verizon-net-Email/Can-t-whitelist-IP-domain/td-p/635809

So I'll give it a shot.

Thanks...

Hi,

I also have exactly this problem, and have been through the same frustrating cycle of submitting the whitelist form and receiving the automated denial with no useful information.  I also have a static IP address, a valid reverse DNS entry, and have found no indication of any "spam issues".

Could I request the "Escalated to Verizon Agent" response ASAP, please, so we can try and work out why I and my hosting customers are unable to e-mail anyone using Verizon as a provider?

Thank you.

My provider and I have tried on mulitple occasions over several weeks to get my domain unblocked. We have completed and submitted the questions at http://www.verizon.net/whitelist multiple times with no results and no feedback.

This is getting very, very frustrating and should not be happening. Why can't I get Verizon to no reject my emails? Must I file a complaint with the FCC? Must I contact my Congressman? Must I write a letter to Mr. McAdam? What can I do to get something as simple as Verizon not rejecting my EMails. Right now, I am beside myself and would very much like to talk to someone!
