My server has found itself, for no apparent reason, on AT&T's RBL. I've already written to email@example.com as suggested in the error message. I assume the upshot of the earlier thread was that all I can do is wait, possibly write again, and hope the AT&T RBL removal gods smile down upon me, is that right?
I had two servers blocked by ATT, fortunately not this one. They were both DigitalOcean droplets, one hosts my bicycle club's lists and the other is my personal mail server. I didn't discover my personal mail server was blocked until I tried to notify the affected bicycle club people.
Anyway, I wrote to firstname.lastname@example.org separately about each block, and each time I wrote, I got the immediate autoresponse. For my personal server, after 62 hours I got a second message that they were removing the block and they did.
For the bicycle club's server, I wrote a total of 4 times over about 11 days before they finally removed the block. I had also suggested to the affected users that they could contact ATT. Out of 33 users, 2 changed to gmail addresses and 2 reported to me that they had contacted ATT, but from what I could understand from their reports, the ATT people they spoke with couldn't do anything and likely didn't even understand the issue.
The bottom line is you have no leverage. It's frustrating, but write every 48 hours and wait.
