Why has my email been blocked and therefore bounced?

Help! Can someone decipher the following? Seems to be bounced from a godaddy server.

I have seen this type of rejection associated with * email containing simple HTML

with from old Quest servers employing a filter I guess to reduce M$ virsuses. I have a

forward at to  Folks at centurylink

were no help with even bounces from email.

Re: Why has my email been blocked and therefore bounced?

Hi @bennett78


From what I understand the message has been blocked due to spam content in the message.


You may submit a request to have the content scanned and potentially have the fingerprints of the message unblocked by visiting and submitting the original outgoing message that first cause the bounce to occur as a .eml or .msg file format. 


As a recommendation I would consider removing the post content as it seems to show personal email addresses, and as this is a public forum, may cause these recipients to start receiving unwanted emails.


Best wishes!

Re: Why has my email been blocked and therefore bounced?

I set up an email forwarder over 48 hours ago. It is still bouncing back as undeliverable. I have double-checked all spellings and everything seems to be in order. I have approx ten other forwarders for this same domain and they are all working fine. Any suggestions?

I am a travel agent and sell Sandals Resorts.  About two months ago I started receiving the response below to any Sandals email address.  Of course, Sandals says the problem is on my end.  

Can someone tell me what this message means and what I can do about it, please?

That error message indicates policy blocking due to being blacklisted or spammy.


What you didn't share (and understandably so) is your domain or IP which is part of this puzzle.   You can check your domain or IP for blacklisting here.

Re: Why has my email been blocked and therefore bounced?

Lately, several customers have advised me that email they send to me bounces.  It seems that these are emails with multiple URLs in them.  They do NOT go to my spam filter.  Did GoDaddy change a setting?  Thanks.
