Our server IP address are being rejected by Symantec. The following IP's are listed as having a negative reputation from your look up form, http://ipremoval.sms.symantec.com/lookup/.
Last week we submitted 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 for delisting and received a message saying that this was complete. We are not showing any unauthorized outgoing mail and do not see that we are listed on any other blacklist.
Any help to solving this would be greatly appreciated. Below is a copy of a rejected email including headers.

I am working with Clatsop Care to resolve an email issue. Please reply to this if you receive it.
I own a small hosting comapny and I have noticed that our sending ip is constantly being blacklisted at http://ipremoval.sms.symantec.com
Apparently because of a showshoe attack. We are extremely strict on our mail policies and monitor all of the major RBL, mail is throttled and we react instantly on any spam report which is very rare.
I have investigated thoroughly and there is no spam coming from our sending IP, in fact there is less than a few 100 e-mails a day most times, and those do not contain anything malicious. Now upon further investigation I see that all the IPs in the range are also being blacklisted. Many of these IPs are not even active and CANNOT be used to send anything at all, the ones that are active are not used for mail.
I have tried to contact Symantec direct over the phone about this but I just go around in circles, nobody knows where to send me or how to answer me.
I hope there is somebody here who can put me in touch with the correct people. If Symantec insists on listing my IPs than I would like some further information if possible such as offending sender address and time.
I have just went through and asked for all these IPs to be unblocked again.
Can you please remove the following IP from your internal blacklist?
I have verified the server is not sending spam and also performed maldet scans with no hits found. Techs at host also found nothing. When I look it up through your reputation tool, it states it has a negative reputation. It removes it, but then it adds it back within 24 hours. I've tried removing it over half a dozen times with no success. Do not see it on any other blacklists. IP may have sent spam prior to being assigned to us.
Our company is running a VDS server. Some of our customer's mail account have been hacked a few weeks ago and many spam has been sent from their account through our server.
The compromised accounts have been secured by now and our server's IP has been released from all the blacklists.
However, since the spam issue, every mail sent from our server to messagelabs are blocked and the connexions from our server are timed out.
Here is an extract from our maillog :

I saw on your forums that many server administrators encountered the same issue.
Can you please check if our server IP (188.8.131.52) is blacklisted on your servers?
Thanks for your help and best regards,
I have just sent and email to CLOUDfeedback@feedback-87.brightmail.com complete with attached 'bounced' email attached.
We are unable to sent to multiple destinations. Can yo uplease check to ensure that out IP address is clear on your system.
I have checked here : http://ipremoval.sms.symantec.com/lookup/ and it tells me that we do not have a negative reputation.
Any help or advice would be much appreciated.
It's almost a week that I found again every day our mail server listed in your blacklist with a bad reputation. Each day I request an investigation at http://ipremoval.sms.symantec.com/lookup/ and the problem seems to be resolved till the next day. The reason provided for the assessment is “The host is unauthorized to send email directly to email servers” but this message cannot help me in any way to figure out what the actual problem is.This issue is costing to our company a lot of problems with our customer using Symantec mail security and so rejecting our emails. There is no spam coming out from our mail server, there is no virus on our mail server and no other pc in our network is sending spam nor is infected. Please keep in mind that our mail server is not listed in any worldwide blacklist but your one. The problem looked like to be solved a couple of months ago
Would you please help me to actually work out this problem ?
Thank you in advance
Marco Della Torre
A client using my server for emails is having issues sending emails to a client using your service. The errors are:
host cluster5a.us.messagelabs.com [184.108.40.206] SMTP error from remote mail server after RCPT TO:<firstname.lastname@example.org>:
421 Service Temporarily Unavailable: retry timeout exceeded
Can you see if our IP or their ISP IP has been temporarily blacklisted or why their emails are not getting through please??
server address is 220.127.116.11.
Sender IP: 18.104.22.168
If it is temporary like your error sugests how long will it take to heal itself?
Thanks in advance for any help/advice it would be much appreciated.
We are receiving bounce back messages from a number of our business partners who appear to be using Symantec cloud.
Server refused mail at END OF DATA - 553-Message filtered. Refer to the Troubleshooting page at 553-http://www.symanteccloud.com/troubleshooting for more 553 information. (#5.7.1)
I have checked our mail server IP addresses on this link but it is reporting no negative reputation. Clearly our IP addresses or domain are being blocked by the service and we would like a resolution for this as soon as possible.
I have also checked on a number of other sites such as mxtoolbox and there are no issues there. Our Exchange administator has also confirmed that everything is setup correctly on our side.
I do no want to post our domain or IP addresses on a public forum so please give me private message address I can send these to.
I am eagerly awaiting a prompt response for this. :-)
We are having emails from our domain blocked by several other companies using Symantec cloud.
Have checked the link provided by Symantec support but none of our MX records are showing as being blocked - how up to date is this?
We are clear on all other spam databases and our admin has checked the Exchange setup as per instructions.
Not keen to post IPs and domain names so would appreciate a PM from a Symantec employee to help resolve.
Looking forward to a quick resolution to this issue.
j'ai un tout nouveau serveur de courriel et je recois ce message d'erreur suivant :
connect to cluster5.us.messagelabs.com[22.214.171.124]:25: Connection refused

Suis-je bloqué de votre coté?
Since yesterday our users are reporting problems sending mails to some of our partners. All error messages bounced back inform the same:
550 5.0.350 Remote server returned an error -> 553 Message filtered. Refer to the Troubleshooting page at;http://www.symanteccloud.com/troubleshooting for more;information. (#5.7.1)
Checked many websites for problems with our domain or our web, but all are Ok.Checked our originating IP with "IP Reputation Investagation" (http://ipremoval.sms.symantec.com/lookup/), but says our IP have no reputation problems. We don't know the mail servers IP, since we have mail hosted at Office 365.
Please, need help to solve this issue.
Could you please inform us about the reasons of blocking our IP address: mail.devart.com [188.8.131.52]?
We got the following warning:
Could not deliver message to the following recipient(s):
Failed Recipient: email@example.com
Reason: Remote host said: 501 Connection rejected by policy [7.7] 20109, please visit www.messagelabs.com/support for more details about this error.
We do have an excellent reputation and never send spam.
We are not Open Relay. We have PRT.
What is the reason of the recurring blocking?
I'm one of those unlucky ones who has received this error and cannot understand the reason behind it.

My personal mail server is clean according to http://mxtoolbox.com and I would like to ask you to remove it from your internal lists too, if that's possible. The IP is 220.127.116.11 (mail.kachkaev.ru; kachkaev.ru).
Given that the threads like mine start once in just a few days, it'd be great if you gave people a slightly more organised tool to than this forum. It could be a form explaining what exactly is happening and asking to submit an IP address of a mailserver affected. The tool could be made available not just for those who have registered on symantec.com as account creation takes quite long.
We have several customers that use Symantec email services. We've been unable to send email to these customers for over a month. Our IP does not have a negative reputation. Any help would be appreciated!

Recently I have moved a website from a customer to a new VPS. Since then his mail get’s blocked because the IP is on your Symantec blacklist with the warning:
The IP address XX.XX.XX.XX was found to have a negative reputation. Reasons for this assessment include:
The host has been observed sending spam in a format that is similar to snow shoe spamming techniques.
I have checked all DNS black list which I could find and the ip is not listed on them. Also I have checked the mailheaders from the mail, but can’t find anything strange.
Already made several times a removal request through your IP reputation Investigation tool, and asked for contact. But no response at all. Also have send a mail yesterday to CLOUDfeedback@feedback-87.brightmail.com, but also no response. Right now it’s again on the blacklist after removing it 2 days ago.
This start to become very annoying! Every DNS black list remove you when you ask them and provide them with information. Only Symantec not. And I am not the only one I see in this forum.
So hopefully somebody here on this forum will response and is willing to look into it. I can provide all the information you need, like mail headers and server logs.
Thanks in advance,
Having looked through the forum I can see that we are not alone in having this issue.
As a company we have moved our email to Office365 and when sending emails to several of our customers we are getting bounce backs.
This has only started happening over the last couple of days. The issue is further compounded in that we are contractually obliged to provide information to our customers via email.
if it helps here is the error detail, but I'm sure that you have seen it before!

My first post seems to have disappeared so I thought I would give it another go.
My company has its mail servers on Office365 and when trying to mail customers, our emails are being blocked.
I’ve checked the online blacklist services and our domain name does not appear on any of them.
I’ve submitted a simple to a sample bounce back message to CLOUDfeedback@feedback-87.brightmail.com, but this is frustrating because that service does not provide any feedback.
I’ve have users that are trying to send contractually required emails, I’ve got salesmen trying to setup meetings and getting bounce backs.
Is there no way that to escalate the resolution process, email is a vital part of doing business and having them block by mistake is not good for our business, and it casts your service in a very dim light.
It would be useful to know why our domain is being block, this is the second time that is has happened.
We are unable to send emails to Email Security.cloud protected email address through our VPS - We are receiving "554 Spam Mail Refused" bounce.
However, the VPS IP, 18.104.22.168, is clean according to IP Address Investigation Request tool:
My client hosts an uncompromised mailserver on 22.214.171.124. IP lookup on the Symantec page shows that the IP has a negative reputation: "The host has been observed sending spam in a format that is similar to snow shoe spamming techniques." Removal via web form only results in temporary unblocking.
The IP is not listed on any other blacklists, and the server, as well as all workstations, have been scanned thoroughly and are clean.
Please let me know what we can do to clear the reputation for our IP permanently.
We are having emails from our domain are being blocked by several other companies using Symantec cloud.
We already have sent an email to CLOUDfeedback@feedback-87.brightmail.com but we got no feedback.
Can you please fix it asap? This problem is getting critical for us.
I can send you details in private if needed.
