    I read the information on the CSS block from spamhaus. They say it takes 3 days to get off the list if you don't mail within the 3 days.

    Would this problem be directly related to crappy data or crappy ips?

    It's a combination of things - move off the IP and let it sit - it will go away. 3 days is sometimes generous - but you should expect to see it drop in 10 days or less. While you 'could' mail on it - I wouldn't suggest it - it's only asking for more trouble.

    Get your data cleaned too.

    I'll stop mailing for 3 days and try out another server for the time being.

    I mailed my initial 500k off of that ip.

    If you mail to the same list and if you use the same email template (e.g., there will be enough common signatures in your old and new emails), your another server will get listed for snowshoeing. You really need to get rid of spamtraps and moles first.

    C'mon dude - I'm REALLY trying to give you the benefit of the doubt for your "quest for the white side" but you gotta do better than "I'll stop for the time being" - I'm bringing into question your sincerity for legit mailing.

    No mention of cleaning your data.

    ONLY 500k and you caught a CSS - do you even know what that is?

    A solid "I'll try..." to real advice on how to handle that listing.

    And let me ask - cuz curious minds will want to know - Where'd you get that IP?

    Are you still mailing with IronClad?

    Where'd you source your IPs?

    Are you using FCrDNS?

    Where'd you get this data?

    Do you have any other data to test?

    What domains are you targeting?

    What type of offers are you pushing?

    Bring some truth to the table or this will be a short lived experience in this forum for you.

    I was battling CSS forever so this thread is interesting to me. I'm guessing this guy isn't cleaning his data if the volume is that low and he's still getting CSS's.

    Push, you asked about using FCrDNS - what are your thoughts on this and CSS? I notice no difference with or without it in terms of CSS, so just curious about your thoughts on this since you mentioned it.

    The spamhaus page on CSS doesn't really explain what it actually is beyond that it's just another part of the spamhaus project.

    I am currently still mailing with Ironclad. They are very supportive and their tech team is very knowledgable.

    My ips were ordered with my Burst servers. I have heard that they aren't the best ip's to mail from but I'd rather make my mistakes on these ips than better ones.

    I am not using FCrDNS but I have requested rDNS from the host provider.

    I would rather not disclose where I got the data from on a public forum. I don't think they would appreciate the attention.

    Currently I do have other data to test and will mail to that data in the mean time.

    Im targeting any domains that arent the major ones like yahoo, hotmail, and gmail. Essentially GI domains.

    I'm pushing As seen on tv and financial offers.

    and STILL no mention of cleaning your data.

    What's your aversion to cleaning data?

    It does not matter where you get your data - traps open up every day. If you are not cleaning your data you are destined to fail.

    And I find it hilarious you actually think the Haus is going to detail what a SBLCSS is on their page. Maybe you should contact them direectly - ask 'em how to avoid that and SBL's and how they suggest mailing on a C... I hear they're very helpful to new mailers.

    Also....

    Also when contacting them be sure to supply all your personal and business info, as well as banking details so they can keep a close eye on all your moves! LOL :shot:
