The version of NetMail installed with NNLS suddenly stopped working, and any email sent to it was bounced with a message that 'you've been blacklisted'. I had checked for open relays, etc., but all seemed OK.

SOLUTION: It turns out that the 'Block' setting in NetMail has an RBL (Realtime Block List) setting with as an option which was enabled.

After checking I found out that is no longer updated. The webpage states ' has not had valid data in well over a year' and as such breaks your NetMail setup.

Remove/disable the use of or choose another RBL and you should be OK.
