My email is on a spam list

I found out my ip address is on a few spam lists. It seems as if it is due my using a dsl network through Qwest. Do I need to go through and remove these. Two of them are in China, so I don't know if I even need to worry about them.

Do you have a permanent IP or one that lasts a long time as long as you are connected (can change after disconnect/reconnect)? If the latter, shutdown modems, routers, computers for 20 minutes then start back up. If the former, go to the spam list sites and find out why you've been listed.

Its dynamically generated. I shut it down a couple times and restarted it to create new IP addresses. In all three cases the Ip's came up on the same lists.

Might query your ISP to find out why they are on the list... (scratching head... about all I can figure.)

Use the Qwest customer use SMTP server for outgoing emails ('Dial-in Numbers' link on their help page). Most likely your IP is coming from a pool of IP's marked as customer use (labeled 'dialup' by some).

The only other workaround would be to get a business account from them with an IP address that isn't in an end user range.
