    SPAM: Who is affected by Spamhaus Exploits Block List? Any remedy?

      Hello everyone,               (Vista Business, McAfee Total Protection)

      I am not an heavy email sender but occasionaly my emails are blocked by 'spamhaus' and make me waste hours of unproductive time. Here is the message below:

      Their website is completely confusing me.

      Also I have the impression that my McAfee "Total Protection" anti-SPAM is conniving with them to block my message immediately. I hope I am wrong in thinking that, but evidences are very strong.

       

      Is anybody else affected by this phenomena? Is there a solution? Is it a malware?

      Thanks for any help,

      Bernard
