ISPs can't afford to let known spam sources relay mail.

If an IP isn't running any anti-spam software in front of the mail it
then relays, then from the ISP's point of view, its not much different
from an open relay being exploited by spammers.

I'll see what I can do.

But if your IP is still relaying a high proportion of spam, it will end
up black listed again.
