Keep an eye on your reputation as a trusted email sender with DNSBL blacklist monitoring. ServerView from Dotcom-Monitor automates the chore of checking blacklist databases.
We query major DNS Blacklist databases for any IP or host names you specify and if the host is found, it triggers an instant alert. DNSBLs publish lists of addresses linked to spamming.
Most mail transport agent (mail server) software can be configured to reject or flag messages which have been sent from a site listed on one or more such lists. If your mail servers are added to a DNSBL database, it can cause other companies to deny email delivery from those servers.
A DNSBL sometimes holds a cache of requests that have been done in memory, which can be held for any length of time. In turn, this creates problems for those who have IP addresses on the DNSBL. Once added to a list, even if your site is removed, you could still be cached in the system and listed as spam. A listing on a DNSBL is a definite indication of absolute distrust, which is what makes a DNSBL monitoring solution an essential part of your business.
Instant DNSBL alerts empower you to take immediate action, identify the root cause of the listing, and begin resolving blacklist issues by contacting the DNSBL to request removal in a timely fashion. See also: DNS Monitoring
