How To (or How Not To) Operate a Blacklist

Today, Return Path posted a short but very helpful set of guidelines that one should keep in mind when operating a DNSBL anti-spam blacklist. It's a must read.

  1. I'm glad you liked it. We've had DNS and BGP-based blacklists of IP addresses for thirteen years -- as you know better than anyone -- yet somehow, we never got around to writing this stuff down.

    I don't think this particular list is complete, but hopefully it'll be a good start point for the conversation.
