ViRGE Posted May 29, 2008 Share Posted May 29, 2008 I've never had an issue having my messages blocked by the PBL for others. Also, I would like to see you TOS that says you can not use external SMTP servers. I know it is not against my TOS. It's entirely possible that not too many people are using the PBL, but Comcast's customer netblocks are definitely on the blacklist. Here's one such example. As for the specific TOS bit, here is what Spamhaus says. Keep in mind they're working with Comcast on this, so they didn't pull it out of thin air: Outbound Email Policy of Comcast for this IP range: Email sent by Comcast subscribers using a mail program such as Outlook Express are required to send the email through Comcast I'd go dredge up Comcast's full TOS, but seeing as how their DNS entries got hijacked and they're still putting things back together, their website is kind of a mess at the moment. Edit: And actually, while I'm thinking about it, how does the PBL work exactly? My understanding of blacklists is that the source IP address is simply fed to the blacklist to see if said IP is on the list. With the PBL, you're on the list regardless. How does one blacklisting via the PBL know if the email came from a correct source or not? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
