Title: Are you using spamcop and other dnsbl?
Post by: keiron on Jul 13, 2022, 03:57 AM
Spammers have recently become quite insolent, and the reason for their activity is the lack of spam filtering by providers according to DNS Black Lists.
I would like to know if you (or your provider) filter mail and if not, then why.

A week since SpamAssassin was installed for general use.
Emails marked as spam are not deleted, but moved to the junkmail box. Then, with three mouse clicks through WebMail, these letters can be deleted if something important did not get there. Very comfortably.

Cuts off almost all spam.
Spamassassin worked in test mode for about two months. No problems were noticed. So I can recommend.
And most importantly, letters are not stupidly cut off if there is a mailer in some RBL. In this case, the letter is simply assigned a certain number of points, and if this number exceeds a certain fixed threshold, then the letter will be considered as spam. There are more than nine hundred spam criteria.

A district judge of Northern California has signed an order temporarily prohibiting any filtering of messages from a well-known spammer office OptinRealBig.com by the SpamCop system.

The ruling, according to CNET, was handed over to IronPort Systems, which operates SpamCop, last Tuesday, but that week its lawyers tried to challenge the judge's decision, arguing that the ban on using the mail filter interferes with the normal operation of the company, and also contradicts the First Amendment to the US Constitution, which guarantees citizens the right to self-expression without there are no restrictions on the part of the state.

The ban on the work of SpamCop was issued by a Northern California court on the claim of the notorious Scott Richter, the self–styled "King of Spam", who owns Optin. Back on April 29, Mr. Richter sued IronPort and SpamCop, accusing them of "creating interference" for his business, expressed in blocking the electronic garbage sent by him. In addition, Richter considered illegal the unwillingness of SpamCop to disclose the names of people who complained about tons of spam sent through channels OptinRealBig.com .
According to Richter, that behavior is SpamCop... It may lead to abuse of the provisions of the recently adopted anti-spam law Can-SPAM Act, which gives people the right to delete themselves from the mailing lists. Lawyers OptinRealBig.com they insist on the right of the company to independently deal with complaints filed by spam victims.

According to the resolution, SpamCop is prohibited from transmitting to third parties (including ISP) complaints of spam recipients concerning the activities of Optin, as well as its branches.
additionally, SpamCop is prohibited from deleting email addresses from complaints sent by the company's customers regarding Optin's activities. Such things.
