Default Tiscali listed as a spam source?

It may simply be somebody using a defunct list, but I've had mail sent
through the Tiscali mail servers bounced as being from a spam source.

Seems to be the SPEWS list, but all I've found so far suggests that,
while the spews.org site is running, there is no current maintenance.

There was some "discussion" of Tiscali and SPEWS up until about six
months ago. As here, some of the "discussion" was pretty heated, and
some of it looked to be rather like spam.

- From what I understand, at least a while ago, Tiscali's attempts to stop
their users spamming were pathetic (or non-existent), hence they were quite
correctly added to block lists.

I couldn't say if this would be correct for the present day, one would have
to investigate. I tend to use http://rbls.org for checking RBL listing.

Most of the addresses from 212.74.114.37-48 (at least some of Tiscali's
SMTP servers) are listed by the above site as being present.

That is what I was able to discover through Google.

Thanks for taking the trouble to dig that out.

Luckily, I'm mostly working through Gmail at the moment. Maybe if I can
break one or two of my dial-up habits I won't notice. It does rather
_look_ as if they're wide open; it isn't obvious if they're doing a
security check on the IP address, but they're not quibbling about the
domain names attached to emails.
