Updating email

From what I understand, Spectrum Communications made a business decision years ago to arbitrarily block huge range of IP addresses belonging to many Internet Service Providers. They make no provision for getting off the blocklist. This appears to only be directed at email spam.

Many Spectrum business customers apparently end up on these blocklists, too, and few if any of them seem to get off the blocklists.

This is not like being added to a classic Email Blacklist, where you can go through a process that verifies your server is not being used by spammers (or to send spam), and you're removed from the blacklist. We've had to do that several times through the years. We're not currently listed on any public blacklists. I check that every year, several times a year.

Spectrum's policy affects users of both the forums we operate (Horror Forum being the other one) and all of the Websites where we allow people to sign up for email notifications. There is literally nothing we can do about this situation.
