|I'm sorry that your message was treated as spam. But the main reason was that the message was positive in the Pyzor test (see http://wiki.apache.org/spamassassin/UsingPyzor [^]). Please check whether it is/was present in the Pyzor database.|
1. A hash sharing system should never be used for boilerplate email - it's just too likely that the hash for a "subscribe" email will have been reported as spam.
2. We use a hosted service for our mail, and though it's on 1 of 150 blacklists, that's probably because someone else hosted on that box raised a red flag.
3. Blacklists in general don't really work, unless you personally know why the server in question is blacklisted. It's just too easy for Spammers to move from one IP to another, or for false-positives.
4. Most of the above is my opinion, so take it for what it's worth. What's next?
