Ummm... yes you are. A quick transcript:

[dan@tuatha dan]$ uname -a

550 Your site is blacklisted as a spam haven.

Connection closed by foreign host.

FWIW, my mail server's hanging off the TCI/AT&T @Home network, which might 
be part of the problem. (Might want to fix the 550 message some if you can 
in that case, though)
