Weblate mails temporarily blocked


The mails sent by weblate originate from an IP address block that was unfortunately blocked.

Aug 28 19:55:19 weblate postfix/smtp[31747]: DF82B4A74A: to=, relay=spool.mail.gandi.net[]:25, delay=0.39, delays=0.01/0.02/0.35/0.02, dsn=5.7.1, status=bounced (host spool.mail.gandi.net[] said: 554 5.7.1 Service unavailable; Client host [] blocked using pbl.spamhaus.org; https://www.spamhaus.org/query/ip/ (in reply to RCPT TO command))

I went ahead and asked for removal. Got confirmations right now that this is in progress. It will take 30 minutes to complete but I don’t know how long it will take for gandi or other mail servers to update.


And the removal won’t work because the spamhaus checks will not conclude this server is a mail server. I’ll bind a new IP which is not blacklisted instead.

Actually, it did work… go figure. I’ll keep the solution of a clean IP in case it resurfaces. The assignment of the IP must be done via the proprietary OVH web interface because the OpenStack network service are not implemented.
