Today, I found a database that's used for some automatic spam
filters that block email from an entire company or ISP at a time. http://www.rfc-ignorant.org/
To use it, enter the domain for the ISP or company you want to check
in the Lookup box, then press your Enter key. If it find any current
entries for that domain, ask the higher-ups to tell the IT guys to get
the domain off that list in case you ever need to send email to someone
who uses one of those automatic spam filters. For a large ISP, don't
expect anyone in the lower levels of their email help group to know
anything about such a listing - expect to have to go at least one
level of supervisors before you reach anyone who understands the
Apparantly, getting on their lists does not require that any spam actually
be sent - only that they find a domain with an email server that
doesn't fit their ideas of how an email server should behave.
I've seen no sign that getting off their lists requires any payment -
just some work on the email server including blocking email from
anyone who actually sent spam, then asking them to check again.
