    hey gurus

    DO you know of any more good reputible block sites that are secure
    and are free (altruists?) and ligit?

    we use spamcop.net andordb.org for our block list block provider
    but want to find another that will help filter more.

    these really work by the way ever since we started using them
    it eliminates like 85 % of our spam easily if we didnt use these
    holy cow do we get bombed with spam and the IMF thresshold
    number works too but i fyou set to high it blocks to many good emails.

    thanks much!

    LOL - your boss says there's no need to pay for a proper anti-spam service? Do you survive on RBLs alone? If you do, and your boss can't see the need to move to something a little more robust - then its time to look for another job :p

    You could check out Spamhaus' XBL - run that alongside Spamcop and you should notice an improvement.

    On a separate, but related note, I'll be posting a spam 'masterclass' shortly - I like to contribute where I can, and hipe people here will find it useful. Part of my current role (indeed, a LARGE part of my current role) involves improving the spam filtering where I work - we're in an odd position insomuch as we don't have a traditional 'ISP' to farm most of our bulk filtering out to, and aren't in the position of being able to use any RBLs because of the mail routing that goes on upstream. I've developed a number of techniques in this role and others which may help to provide a good overview of how to reduce your spam to an almost non-existent level!

    I've tried them all!
    I'm trying to get away from them as I get too many false-positives.

    The only ones i found of any use blocking spam were spamcop and spamhaus who are head + shoulders above the rest.

    A good content based spam filter is a much better solution. I believe there are good free solutions out there too. I hear good things about Spamassassin.
