When i am trying to restart my postfix and nagios for sending a mail automatically about the status the foollowing message appears.

Status:Deffered.Connections will not be accepted from x.x.x.x because the ip is in spamhaus list[yahoo.dns.net]
  • And what is the question? – A.B. Oct 14 '15 at 6:50
  • your IP address is in blacklisted list. Probably you are using dynamic public IP than this will make sense. – Aizuddin Zali Oct 14 '15 at 6:53
  • What to do now? And even i deleted my ip from PBL blocked list still the message appears and the next day the ip is again block listed in PBL – veeru Oct 14 '15 at 6:56
  • How can i able to send the mails automatically @A.B. – veeru Oct 14 '15 at 6:57
  • you did not answer my question, private or public IP? – Aizuddin Zali Oct 14 '15 at 6:57

This is normal if you are using dynamic public IP. This is effort to block spamming used by ISP.

However if this is private IP then you need to contact the blacklist host site administrator to exclude you from the list or your ISP to help you out.

To check blacklist IP Blacklist Checker.

  • No you cant, you are using public ip. It will get rotated. – Aizuddin Zali Oct 14 '15 at 7:21
