pwellens Posted April 28, 2004 Share Posted April 28, 2004 Over the last few months, Spamcop has started blocking IP addresses too aggressively. As an example Australia's Largest ISP (I am in Australia) has had most of its emails servers blocked by Spamcop (bigpond.com), 144.135.24.*, 144.135.25.*, 144.140.70.* 144.140.71.* Yes they have an awful lot of mail servers. These mail servers also host mailservers for many Australian Businesses. As a result approx 1 in 20 legitimate emails from Australian Companies are blocked by Spamcop. Upon checking other Major ISP's in Australia most had been blocked for some period of time. Today I noticed one of Australias largest IT Companies Express Data has been blocked. 22.214.171.124 Spamcop was the most comprehensive blocklist I have ever used. But with an ever increasing amount of false positives I will have no choice but to stop using this once great blocklist. The blocklist unfortunately appears to disadvantage mail servers at ISP's or large companies that do send out a lot of legitimate email that people are marking as spam. I have enabled whitelists for all the Major ISP's to help this problem. But I am adding 10 Australian mail servers a day that are blocked by Spamcop that are legitimate and wrongly identified. The value of Spamcop as a blocklist is fast becoming nil. Please review your listing techniques as you have now become way too aggressive and your reputation is suffering badly.
