We're working as quickly as possible to resolve this issue.

As of right now, we know of two (2) major mail providers that are not accepting mail from birdphotographers.net (more accurately our mail server IP address). These are as follows:


Believe me, I know how large these providers are, and this is a serious issue.

Requests have been submitted to both AT&T and Yahoo! to be removed from any black lists, or temporary deferrals.

Again, I appreciate your patience in regards to this situation as we are working as quickly as humanly possible.

Thank you,

Thank you for contacting the Postmaster/Abuse team at ATT.NET and

The mail-server IP address(es) associated with your request will be
removed from the block-list within 24-36 hours from the receipt of
this letter. ATT.NET and BELLSOUTH.NET, its affiliates, and network
services customers do NOT intentionally block legitimate mail in the
course of our anti-spam initiatives. We regret any inconvenience this
may have caused.

Network administrators at ATT.NET and BELLSOUTH.NET closely analyze
the mail stream bound for our customers to identify sources that exhibit
the characteristics of compromised network objects or are compromised
by an offender of Acceptable Use Policies. While a certain level of
this kind of mail is to be expected in today's internet traffic, when
this occurs above generous thresholds set by ATT.NET and BELLSOUTH.NET
system administrators, immediate and decisive action is taken to
protect our network resources.
