Forwarded email is bouncing

I've just received a bounce message from one of the zoneedit mail servers ( containing the following message:

host[] said: 550 5.7.1 H:M10 [] Connection refused due to abuse. Please see (http):// or contact your E-mail provider. (in reply to MAIL FROM command)

Sure enough, looking up on (http):// says "Worst possible reputation" for both "Mailspike Reputation" and "Mailspike RBL". Is there spam getting through the zoneedit servers?

I had to edit the URL to post this message because the forum thought it was spam. Please remove the parentheses from the URLs.
