This is a list of IP Addresses that do not conform to more commonly known threats, and is usually because of compromised servers, hosts, or open relays. However, since there is little accompanying data this list COULD have false-positives, and we suggest that it only is used if you support a more aggressive stance. It normally requires that the IP Address has been observed to been executing excessive delivery attempts. However, this can occasionally happen even from normal email servers, because of bounce attacks, compromised email accounts, or other issues.
Is the information on our site wrong or incomplete? You don't want us to monitor your blacklist? Or do you operate a similar blacklist? We would like to hear from you!
We keep some statistics on blacklists. Below is the graph for spam.spamrats.com. We test blacklists by asking them to respond to known IP's that are blacklisted and known IP's that can't be blacklisted. Not every blacklist has such IP's, we test them with what is possible. We keep if we get any response or error messages and the response duration. Lower response times are better. These statistics may be useful for email server administrators to pick which blacklist to use.
