I don't know why, but at apews.org there seem to be some very
aggresive rules to be active. This is definetly doing more harm then
The problem is, that the mailsystems from our customer (18.104.22.168
and 22.214.171.124) are listed in their database, as we are part of
the class b net 126.96.36.199/16. But as one can see on the ripe
database, the customers range is from 188.8.131.52 to
184.108.40.206. I think we are not responsible for a whole provider,
nor should apews.org block an hole ISP net.
Apews.org does not provide manual delisting or an email contact.
Any idea how to get rid of this?

Ho-hum. Repetitive whingeing about BACKSCATTERER is banned;
similarly-repetitive whingeing about APEWS is OK.
It's a strange world.

Who is "we"? Are you QSC AG? If so, you are responsible for the entire
block, not just "part" of it. The RIPE listing says that 126.96.36.199
is allocated to a customer of QSC AG. If you are some middleman (neither
QSC nor the customer), then you don't seem to be involved in this matter

Which "whole provider"? Who is "we"?

It has always been so. The "EW" in "APEWS" stands for "Early Warning" -
APEWS lists address-space it thinks is likely to emit spam. It lists
containing blocks if smaller blocks persist in spamming. Whether it
"should" behave like that or not is a pointless debate - that's what it
does, and it's unlikely to change.

If you are QSC AG, then the APEWS listing told you all you need to know.
If you are not, then someone from QSC AG needs to deal with this. Either
way, you don't need a manual delisting facility, nor an email contact.

Take another look at the APEWS listing - it tells you what has to be done.
because it is sometimes claimed that APEWS is a manifestation of the
phenomenon known as "DNSBL theatre," all readers of this newsgroup
would be interested in seeing evidence of an actual instance of email
rejected based on a listing in APEWS. if you have such evidence, would
you please post a copy here?
