hey gurus

DO you know of any more good reputible block sites that are secure
and are free (altruists?) and ligit?

we use for our block list block provider
but want to find another that will help filter more.

these really work by the way ever since we started using them
it eliminates like 85 % of our spam easily if we didnt use these
holy cow do we get bombed with spam and the IMF thresshold
number works too but i fyou set to high it blocks to many good emails.

thanks much!

    I have been using for production for about 2 years now. It has a very low incidence of false positives (necessary in our environment) so it may not catch as much as others.
    All things are possible, only believe.

    thanks mark
    yeah, these other two have been good but the more the better
    kind of like how i run 2 or 3 AVs at home what one doesnt catch the other will! Symantec 10., NoD32, and McAfee..

    thanks a billion! :):D

    Hey guru sprkymrk

    how can i explain to my box RBLs are secure or are they?
    i know they query RBLs. We have exchange 2003 and i conifgure the block lists but how to convince a dataprocesser (not an IT guy)
    about how it queries another server and doesnt open it up
    for attacks or does it. I dont think it does but what do you think?

    Probably the only kind of "attack" would be a sort of Denial-of-Service, as they could potentially block legitimate access to whatever mail servers they want. However, it is only a vulnerability if you don't keep watch over it. You can stop using the RBL any time you want.
