When trying to send emails to certain addresses I receive a delivery failure notice telling me that my IP address has been rated as poor and therefore blocked. I am then asked to go to websites like


to get my rating checked and removed. Are these trustworthy?

Just to add: I have my own domain hosted by my ISP.

I'm not a technology whiz... Jun 10, 2009

...but these kinds of things really send up red flags for me. (I'm a bit on the paranoid side anyway).
Is there anyway you can check this with your domain host? If your e-mail is through your domain, I think that service provider should be able to see why the domain is not getting e-mails through.
(I want to apologize, as this sounds perfect in my head, but I'm not sure if you will understand what I mean.)

And, I see the word "barracuda" in the name, which in my dialect is a person who takes advantage of others.
??? I hope this helps someway!
