Specific SORBS BLOCK Details
This SORBS Zone lists IP Addresses and networks which have requested to be omitted from the SORBS scanning and processing. SORBS makes this zone available so that administrators that wish to use SORBS can identify mail from these IPs as having not been included in other zones.
SORBS General Info
The SORBS (Spam and Open Relay Blocking System), owned and operated by Proofpoint, Inc., provides free access to its DNS-based Block List (DNSBL) to effectively block email from more than 12 million host servers known to disseminate spam, phishing attacks and other forms of malicious email. The list typically includes email servers suspected of sending or relaying spam, servers that have been hacked and hijacked, and those with Trojan infestations. In an attempt to provide preemptive protection, SORBS also lists servers with dynamically allocated IP addresses.
Sorbs Block Reports Subnets
Subnet-based Blacklists are used to reject email from entire ranges of IP Addresses, i.e. providers that are hosting companies sending spam, as well as single IP Addresses that may fall in that range of IP Address.
Sorbs Block Requires A Manual Delisting Request
This blacklist does support a manual request to remove or delist your IP Address from their database. Please note that removal requests that are submitted without addressing the core problem will likely result in your IP Address or Domain being relisted in that database, which can cause subsequent problems and extended listing periods without release.
