Is it your Postfix server at IP address 74.235.192.80, rDNS
adsl-235-192-80.mco.bellsouth.net, that is being rejected by remote
hosts due to the PBL listing? This does _not_ mean that hosts sending
mail _to_ your Postfix server will be rejected due to that PBL listing.
 64.38.48.101 is not listed in Zen. I don't understand why you included
this transaction in your post. It is irrelevant to the issue.

Can you please clearly state what your question is? The way you have
asked it doesn't make sense.
