HELP: Emails sent to me are being return to the sender with a spam warning,
A common reason this will occur, is because the IP address of the ISP of the email sender has been blacklisted with on Antispam database. Such Antispam databases include spamcop.net or ordb.org. Datacentres use these antispam databases to cut down the amount of spam that is received through the network. If someone who sends you an email encounters this issue, they will need to contact their ISP (the company that they connect to the internet with) to ask them to contact the relevant spam database, to ask them to remove the blacklist. Often the blacklist will only last a day, unless more reports have been received about spamming on the affected IP address. Only the owner of the blacklisted IP address (eg. the ISP) is able to have the blacklist removed.
