The SolarWinds Spam Blacklist tool enables you to test your corporate e-mail servers to ensure they are not listed in one of the spam blacklist databases. DNS blacklists or spam blacklists are popular tools used by e-mail administrators to help block reception of unsolicited e-mails into their mail systems. A DNS blacklist server maintains a database of IP addresses which have been sources of spam. The idea is if an IP address has sent spam in the past, it will be likely to send more spam in the future. By configuring mail servers to consult DNS blacklists before accepting an email message, e-mail administrators can block a large percentage of incoming spam.
SolarWinds Spam Blacklist ships with connections to more than 50 of the top spam blacklists on the Internet and has the ability to add servers. Ideally, you should run Spam Blacklist once a week to ensure your company stays off the known blacklists. In the event someone flags you on one of the lists, SolarWinds provides detailed information as to why you are on the spam blacklist, as well as a direct link to the spam blacklist provider's website. Here, you will find information on how to request removal from their list. It only takes a couple seconds to determine if you are on a spam blacklist with SolarWinds Engineer's Toolset!
