Nor do we, and it's likely they won't tell you because they consider
such information to be proprietary and of potential use to spammers.

You need to contact these ISPs directly and explain what the character
of your mailings is and ask what you need to do to get your server
treated better.

This is a tedious and difficult process. Many of us have been there
with one or more of the large ISPs and we sympathize with you, but
basically, you have to search for the way to submit a "my mail is not
being delivered to your users" report and work through their process.

I've been through this process with Hotmail, but as far as I know I
haven't had problems with Google/Gmail and my only Yahoo issues have
been delayed mail, not outright refusal, so I haven't had the need to
try to find their contact info.
