It looks like they use the SORBS dynIP block list. Happily, they even
point out a howto resource:
Sometimes, as I have found with some of my users who have dsl at home,
people inherit an IP that was previously occupied by a computer with a
zombie or open proxy or whatever. In my cases, the IP was listed on
multiple blocklists, other than dynamic IP ones.
So, trying to run a dynamic IP'd mail server without a smart host is just
not too good of an idea these days (was it ever?), anyway you look at it.
