Why is it important to monitor the RBLs?

Your business and private correspondence depends heavily on whether your messages are being duly delivered to their intended recipients.

What are RBLs and how do they work?

RBL is an abbreviation for “Real-time Blackhole List”. Although this is a popular and commonly used abbreviation, DNSBL (or “DNS blacklist”) should be seen as a more accurate technical term.

RBL Criticism

Email users who find their messages blocked from mail servers that use DNSBLs often object vociferously, sometimes to the extent of attacking the existence of the lists themselves.

EmailBasura and MailPolice have been removed

We have just removed EmailBasura and MailPolice from the list of automatically monitored RBLs.

RBLmon upgraded

Following up on our previous post, we are glad to announce that we have just completed a major software upgrade of the RBLmon platform.

RBLmon Maintenance

Between 12:00 and 14:00 GMT on Friday, May 7th, 2010, the RBLmon will be down for software maintenance.

Email notification options are now available

This is a newly added feature of the user interface of RBLmon.

A change in our email notification system

Starting today, the RBLmon only sends email alerts if the monitoring system detects a change in the RBL status of your IP addresses. You will no longer receive email messages from the RBLmon upon every single scan regardless of the results.

It’s been three months

We are three months old now. First of all, we would like to say a big ”Thank you!” to all of you guys for signing up and providing us with constructive feedback and ideas.

Time for presents :)

As we are approaching the Christmas and New Year celebrations, we’ve got RBLmon a present 🙂
