Following is the "failure" message one of my users received when trying
to send mail to her sister. Certain data has been altered to protect the

Failed to deliver your message to

Does this mean I am blacklisted? As I read this, it sounds like we are
accused of having an open relay. I did a telnet test to my mail server
and it responded, "we don't relay", but somehow someone must think it

If I am blacklisted, how do I get off? If I am relaying, how can I tell?
And further, how do I shut it down?

I am using SIMS 1.8b9d14. I have the "Relay for clients only" switch on.
Is there something else?
