In case you read via means other than direct mail,
[because my reply to you bounced]
this is to inform you that your mail server (Cambridge's)
is *still* rejecting mail from my static IP based on a single
bogus MAPS RBL entry that includes the entire network:

  <address@hidden>: host mx.cam.ac.uk[] said: 550- is
      listed at rbl-plus.mail-abuse.ja.net; See 550
      http://mail-abuse.com/cgi-bin/lookup? (in reply to RCPT TO

I've encountered/reported the same problem numerous times for your
domain over the last year or so.

Maybe you can help someone understand that this is not good
for the University's reputation.
