Unhappy Fastmail blocked or me???

I am trying to send email from my Fastmail account (tried both Thunderbird and webmail) and all messages sent to a certain provider are coming back to me with the message "undelivered mail returned to sender". I can't figure out if it is my IP address that is blocked or Fastmail... still have to learn how to read all that techniccal mambo jambo

This same thing happened to me a couple of days ago when trying to respond to an e-mail. I'm still waiting to hear back from FM support.

Angry SpamCop interferes again

Yes, this is SpamCop interfering again, because, in their words, there have been two reports of spam sent from fastmail in the last 17 days. Specifically, "Listing History:
In the past 16.6 days, it has been listed 2 times for a total of 26 hours".

Y'know, if someone like me "bounces" spam back, since the recipient is often someone other than the actual recipient, they'd probably see it as spam. This suggests that bouncing might not be the best way to dispose of junk mail. Maybe delete only should be the policy.

Suggestions?

actually more than 2 reports ... here's the latest from SpamCop.
(Some good news maybe - it looks like the latest problem has been marked as resolved ?)
Code:
-- SPAM SOURCE REPORT --
IP Address      Start/Duration Trap User Mole Simp Additional comments
    66.111.4.26  Feb 16 11h/1    0    8    0    0 delisted manually, marked resolved
    66.111.4.25  Feb 11 17h/3    0   14    0    0 marked resolved

Delete only seems to be the best way to go - avoids adding grief to "joe-jobs" via returns to (forged) senders,
saves your own bandwidth, and avoids exposing your actual FM account name (if bouncing from an alias) ...
(It would be nice to be able to reject at SMTP level, but failing that, post-receipt filtering and deletion is probably
the next best thing).
