Mostly it is caused by a lot of users using the same SMTP server for spamming or sending bulk emails. Once the server detects the bulk mails, it sees them as spam and will blobk the IP to protect other users. Afrihost does not support bulk mailing on any of the servers or the DSL SMTP. Touch Stream would bbe the only solution for this.

Touchstream is a powerful, all-in-one email marketing tool that's incredibly easy to use.

From building a mailing list and creating personalized newsletters, to measuring campaign results and sending automated follow up emails, you can manage it all using only your web browser!

This is how it works:

Setup Cost R299.00 (once off);

For Only R230p/m: You can send up to 20 000 emails per month; Additional blocks of emails are sold at 10 000 / 1gig* blocks for R100 per month.

Thus if you would like to send 22 000 emails you will be billed:

Touchstream Basic Rate R230.00 p/m
Touchstream Plus Rate R200.00 p/m

*SPAM or unsolicited mail is not tolerated and accounts will be terminated immediately without refund.
