Gorbs is a black-listing email service and it could black-list your email accidentally.
What is 'denied by gorbs' in bounced email?
An email bounce is the message you get back when, for one reason or another, your email cannot be delivered as you've requested.
Bounce messages are often cryptic but typically include important details of why the message couldn't be delivered. "Denied by gorbs" is relatively new and particularly cryptic.
As best I've been able to determine, gorbs is a fairly new email spam black-listing service.
What this means is that your recipient's ISP is using this blacklist to filter out SPAM. Somehow your email domain (the part after the "@" in your email address), or the IP address of your ISP's mail server has probably been placed on the gorbs blacklist.
Assuming you're not a spammer, what this means to you is that you need to attempt to contact your recipient or your recipient's ISP to get off the list or to get whitelisted. The problem is, since you're blacklisted, your regular email won't get through. You'll need to use another method to contact them. Either a different email address or server or perhaps even picking up the telephone.
