I'vve lookedat the blocked messages which Randy sent me, and that's
something yet something else.  This particular issue is specific to

  torvalds at linux-foundation.org
    SMTP error from remote mail server after end of data:
    host ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM [2607:f8b0:4001:c05::1b]:
    550-5.7.1 [2001:4978:20e::2      12] Our system has detected that this message
    550-5.7.1 is likely unsolicited mail. To reduce the amount of spam sent to

Doing a quick check, courtesy of http://mxtoolbox.com/blacklists.aspx,
it looks like merlin.infradead.org is on the SORBS spam list:

Problem hostnames/domains (could cause email problems.)
2 "Spamvertised" entries [22:09:23 01 Nov 2011 GMT+00]. - 2 entries [22:09:23 01 Nov 2011 GMT+00].	

For more details, you might want to check:


It looks like in November of last year, one of SORBS spamtraps
received spam mail sent from infradead.org.  You might try submitting
a delisting request to SORBS.  This might hopefully solve the problem.
