Port 25 of relay.verizon.net is still a blackhole as far as
*.mail.uksolutions.net is concerned, although I can ping and
traceroute the host just fine. All of the incidental little shell
accounts I have scattered around the UK can see it either.
I've tried from virgin IP addresses and even well-known boxes it'd
not be a bad idea to blackhole just in case they'd somehow inverted
the logic on the firewall...
So I'd say that it was you being whitelisted and they haven't ceased
to be a bunch of clueless fsckwits. Alternatively, you've just been
blacklisted and the inverted logic now lets you through :)
