F. Jones Posted June 1, 2004 Share Posted June 1, 2004 I read a fairly heated thread on the forum about SpamCop's handling of Yahoo! groups. The gist of the thread was that unsolicited mail can come from Yahoo! groups and SpamCop blocks it. That all sounds good, but I'm interested in whether or not this has the effect of blocking legit mail from Yahoo! groups. I've been testing out a number of RBLs lately and several of them resulted in the blockage of legit Yahoo! group traffic. I seem to have a lot of Yahoo! group users, so this is important to me. Anyone have any thoughts on this? I've considered a simple whitelist for the groups, but the lists I checked that blocked these groups seemed to be a bit too aggressive in general, so this seems to be a good litmus test. Also, given that the front page for SpamCop's blacklist info says that's it's too aggressive for production use (as a simple BL, that is), I thought it would be worth asking what others think of the BL. Other departments here are using the SpamCop BL, but we have all different kinds of users and what's good for one group, might not be good for us. Personally, I have no need for group traffic, but the guy in the office next to me would probably flip without it. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
