Most likely your on a black list, happens a lot, and its easy to get on
(someone just needs to report you, there is no disputing their claim)
and a pain to get off.  Sounds more and more likely that your host is on
the black list since they "claimed they were aware of and were dealing

Subject: [thelist] Legitimate Email Being Blocked

I manage a website for a band who sends out weekly newsletters to those
who sign up for them.

Within the last couple of months, a huge percent of these emails were
bouncing back as undeliverable (more than half).  Many were AOL and
Hotmail, which our hosting company claimed they were aware of and were
dealing with.  However, many were not either of those and a couple were
actual band members, so we know they weren't blocking them themselves!

The band manager created a new email account for the band through his
personal Comcast at home.  He gathered up the email addresses from the
web server and tried sending the newsletter from there -- again, a huge
amount bounced back!

Is it possible for someone (possibly a former disgruntled band member)
to cause this type of mess?

I really don't know what to do next.

Any suggestions/help would be greatly appreciated!!
