Re: IP Address not being removed from ATT Blacklist

said by t3kt3hgrrl:

The issue we have is that a client is trying to send very important emails to people who use ATT/Bellsouth/Packardbell accounts and they will not go through.

AT&T's email servers are used for Packard Bell? I was not even aware that Packard Bell still operated (or sold products) in the US.*

* I used to work for the company who assimilated the PC manufacturing entity known as Packard Bell. The current owner of the name Packard Bell only bought the name, not the company or its assets, and unless something has very recently changed, they do not even export anything using the Packard Bell brand name to North America (much less have any facilities here that would have email handled by AT&T).

I will admit that my eyesight is not what it used to be, but I don't see a US flag anywhere on the Packard Bell homepage:

I noticed that as well. As a former AT&T West customer, I have to assume the OP thought that, 'pacbell.net' had something to do with "Packard Bell".

To the OP: The 'pacbell.net' domain belonged to "Pacific Bell Telephone", which was bought by SBC Global in 1996.

In addition, SBC bought AT&T, changing its corporate identity to AT&T, in 2005.

And these AT&T forums are geared to users of the 'at&t Yahoo! HSI service. Their purpose is for user-to-user assistance in troubleshooting problems with the DSL service; and related user account problems.

Actually that confusion is/was intentional. The name "Packard Bell" was a clever gimmick designed to make uninformed people think that there was an association with Hewlett Packard, Bell & Howell, and the multiple Bell telephone companies.
