    PM me the IP addresses you are trying to use. It's possible you are blocked in Spamhaus. If so, that's not us directly. I'll be happy to check it, however.

    We do have tables separate from Spamhaus. It's possible your IP(s) were used by a spammer in the past and we have blocked them.

    Just put into google search engine, "What is my ip address?" and it will tell you.
