Getting De-Listed


Recommended Posts

We at Emperion has placed an strict anti spam policy which is in effect for the last two months and any complain that we receive is dealt with immediately. We are also making sure that the end users are being educated to make sure that they are save from spam and are also helping them fight spam.

Now the question is that how do we monitor our performance in accordance with SPAMCOP in order to get us delisted. I read some previous posts on the forum related to the same topics but I still have confusion about the procedure. So if any can shed some light ?!!!

You say you read some posts but say nothing about taking a look at any of the FAQs ...???? From the data below, it looks like you've some immediate issues with BLs other than SpamCop.net. Which IP address do you believe is listed on the SpamCopDNSBL? Where does the e-mail to abuse[at]emperion.net end up, Denmark or Dubai? (Is this the reason for the question, complaints going to the wrong office?)

per http://www.senderbase.org/?sb=1&searchBy=o...=Emperion%20A/S

Thanx for the prompt reply. The emails send out to abuse[at]emperion.net end up in dubai. So wat i gather from u reply is that these 20 emperion IP address are in voilation currently and we need to get them sorted. Is there a way of getting a proof of spam from each of the IP so if we block the IP we can back it up with a proof spam document.

If you have the spamcop report, then you have the evidence. There is also nanas where people post spam. If these IP addresses are as dirty as they seem to be, there should be plenty of evidence there. (someone else will have to explain about how to find nanas - it is in Google groups, I believe. it contains only copies of spam that have been received.)

There are also ways for server admins to look at logs (not only outgoing on Port 25, but also in the firewalls because trojans use other ports than the outgoing mail port). Perhaps some server admins will help you. There are different products and therefore different solutions.

It is good to find an internet service provider who is serious about spam. It is also good that you are trying to educate your end users.

The SpamCop blocklist is dynamic and automatic. If there is spam reported, the IP address is listed. When there is no spam, it is delisted. Therefore, when you receive a spamcop report, the first thing to do is to find out why - a spammer signed up? an end user has been infected with a trojan? If you take immediate steps to stop the spam, then the IP address will not be listed very long.

Apparently you have problems with other blocklists. there are different procedures for getting IP addresses removed from those lists. Again, some server admins may give you some pointers if you are interested.

Thank you for being concerned about stopping spam coming from your IP addresses! and Good Luck in getting it cleaned up!

Miss Betsy
