The amount of spam is increasing; as methods to block and filter spam become more sophisticated, the methods being used to deliver it are also evolving. The RBL (Realtime Blackhole List) is the first level of defense in this ongoing battle to minimize and manage the impact of spam on both the people and the resources of your organization. We at AlterHosting understand the importance of spam problem, and take every possible step to protect you and your organization from unsolicited commercial and bulk email. The rblsmtpd program is the first level of spam protection, this most comprehensive tool is included in all hosting packages, and FREE for all AlterHosting clients.
The rblsmtpd blocks mail from RBL-listed sites (servers). The RBL was created by Mail Abuse Prevention System (MAPS) LLC. RBL, short for Realtime Blackhole List, is a list of IP addresses whose owners refuse to stop the proliferation of spam. The RBL usually lists server IP addresses from ISPs whose customers are responsible for the spam and from ISPs whose servers are hijacked for spam relay.
