Re: zen.spamhaus error

sheffters, I got some feedback from Spamhaus on your problem. Maybe they browse the forum; at least someone contacted me and claimed to be from "The Spamhaus Project" I rewrote their text a bit (they used some word I don't understand but I'm assuming isn't entirely nice).

Re: spamhaus false positive

Are you sure that spamhaus just doesn't sometimes return an incorrect result? That is not physically possible. Spamhaus answers many billions of queries each day, if it returned any incorrect results ever it would cause havoc with mail everywhere. The type of problem experienced by the OP is normal...
