The mail got stuck in [my] mailq saying "Connection reset by

Now, I am - or at least was - listed by SORBS, because I refuse
consider their abuse attempts anything but, well, abuse attempts.
And there are still a few places left that block based on SORBS.
So I tried from [that workplace's mailserver]:

250 Hello, spam sender. Pleased to be wasting your time.
I didn't bother going any further, since it seems to be of the
opinion that [that mailserver] is a spam source too [...].
This is rich coming from someone who blacklists whole domains purely
they don't fit into their world view:
Maybe you annoyed them as much as myself and just injected you and all
embody into their generic spam reject pool.
At least I can take some small satisfaction in that you just gave up.
Maybe one day you'll give up blacklisting my valid for years email
(well, to the rest of the world anyway), but I suspect we'll run out of
IPv6 addresses before that happens.
