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 spews.relays.osirusoft.com as an option which was enabled.

After checking http://relays.osirusoft.com/ I found out that spews.relays.osirusoft.com is no longer updated.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

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