These are email addresses that are expired, or that never were 'real' recipients that Spamhaus acquires from ISP's. They re-purpose expired domains and rumor has it - also plant addresses on various websites around Etherspace. Since these are not 'real people' - the addresses should never end up on an opt-in list, so if you send an email campaign and it ends up in one of Spamhaus' inboxes - clearly your list development practices are not cool. Some list vendors develop emails lists - albeit illegally - by scraping websites for email addresses. This is why you should never us these lists]. Spamhaus then adds the sending email servers to their blacklists. Overall it's a pretty good system but not flawless in our experience. For example, if you are capturing registration information from your website or from online events, an ill-willed deviant can enter a bogus / honeypot address into your list. Your well-intentioned campaign gets caught and viola - you are on Spamahaus' list. Solution: Always email list use double opt-in processing (most email services providers like Pinpointe provide mechanisms to enforce double opt-in when using their forms to collect subscribers). UCEProtect. UCE Protect deserves mention because its one of the few major SPAM blacklists where you can blacklisted because of something someone else did.

The free email tracker is not only cheap to obtain but also simply to use. There are several hundred SPAM blacklists that can impact your email marketing results but luckily, there are a few tools that can help you check most of them quickly. We've included here a handy reference with the sites that you can use to check your blacklist status. We've also highlighted a handful of the more prominent email list SPAM blacklists. What you need to know to check Blacklist status Most SPAM blacklists track the reputation of the email servers that are being used to send outgoing email marketing for your domain> To get started - you'll need to know the IP address of the email servers sending emails for your company. If your company uses its own servers to send email campaigns, you'll need top know the IP addresses of those servers. If your company is sending email campaigns via an Email Service provider ("ESP") then you'll need to know the IP addresses of their servers or specifically - what IP addresses are being used for your domain (if you have a dedicated IP address as part of your service). You can usually get this information by asking your IT support staff, or alternatively send an email to yourself and select the 'view headers' option in your email client. The header option will indicate the IP address your email was sent from.
