Spamcop blocking Gmail

Anyone else seeing Spamcop used to deny email from Gmail? This is killing me. Here are two recent examples:

This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification

Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:

snort-users@lists.sourceforge.net

Technical details of permanent failure:
PERM_FAILURE: SMTP Error (state 9): 550
See http://www.spamcop.net/bl.shtml for more information."

The second problem:

This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification

Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:

obscured@obscured.obs

Technical details of permanent failure:
PERM_FAILURE: SMTP Error (state 10): 554 Service unavailable;
Client host [64.233.162.202] blocked using bl.spamcop.net;
Blocked - see http://www.spamcop.net/bl.shtml?64.233.162.202

Is anyone else seeing this?

I've seen this when posting to lists.sourceforge.net (specifically NET-SNMP's mailing list)...

----------------

Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:

net-snmp-users@lists.sourceforge.net

Technical details of permanent failure:
TEMP_FAILURE: Too many connections to lists.sourceforge.net
----------------------

My msg failed for a different reason but curious nonetheless. For your message Spamcop says:

cannot find an mx for zproxy.gmail.com
64.233.163.27 is an mx ( 5 ) for gmail.com

Looks like those DNS problems at google aren't over yet. Ahhh growing pains... we all have em.

I'm experiencing the same problem, although I didn't know it was because of spamcop until I read your blog today. I had to use other my other email account to get any emails through.

Have found that I get this notice when an email address has a mismatch in email address that includes a capital letter and lower case letters. When I change the address to all lower case or all upper case the email goes through.
