If you create a support ticket they respond ( usually within a
month :-) ) and most likely delist the ip address.
The problem with sorbs is that they take unreasonably long time to list
or delist

I have had machines listed because of relaying spams due to bad
passwords. While the listing itself is quiet reasonable .. SORBS seems
to notice the oubreak only a month after the spam outbreak happened and
was stopped.
