I have a friend who's email service sporadically bounces my email. Why?
Because I own my own domain, I use my hosting company's email servers
instead of my ISP's and a small number of their customers are spammers.
Whenever their spam gets above a certain threshold, her ISP blocks any
email access from those servers, and cuts us off. This is why I dislike
blacklists: they're just about guaranteed to produce at least 99% false
positives because they're just an exercise in throwing the baby out with
the bath water.
