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.
