Well, blacklisting usually doesn't "just happen".  At least not in my 
system.  It's usually for a good reason.  I did notice that some of you 
are getting higher-than-usual scores because the dial-up number or IP 
address you were assigned had been blacklisted.  If that IP shows up in 
Received headers, you'll hit RCVD_IN_* SpamAssassin rules.  Best 
solution is to redial or reset your DSL modem and hope you get a 
different address assigned by DHCP.

Note, IronPort's Senderbase system is useful for checking all this out:


It has a handy meta-directory of blacklists.
