What Is The Nixspam Blacklist?

The Nixspam Blacklist is a realtime blacklist that publishes a list of IP Addresses that send spam messages across the internet.  The Nixspam, or iX, Blacklist has over 500,000 entries added per day once spam is detected.  The spam filters are incredibly fast and accurate.  If that IP Address does not send anymore spam for 12 hours, the entry is removed from the Nixspam Blacklist.  If a user thinks they were listed by mistake, the Nixspam Blacklist Organization allows users to request for removal.

How Does The Nixspam Blacklist Work?

The Nixspam Blacklist is available to the public.  The Blacklist works to block IP Addresses that send spam to others.  The system is automatic and works nonstop to stop spam.  The Blacklist is meant to protect users against spam.

How do I reduce my risk of getting onto the Nixspam Blacklist?

The best way to avoid getting listed on a blacklist is to engage in proper email practices such as...

  • Verify all email addresses before attempting outreach
  • Avoid sending unnecessary emails
  • Avoid the use of spam words within your email drafts
  • Keep your sending volume to a minimum (30-50 a day if your inbox has been warmed up with us for at least 30 days)

Blacklist: An online database that aggregates email addresses and domains that have been reported on multiple occasions to be sending out spam or malicious content to others on a large scale. These blacklists are used as a reference by mail servers in order to determine how safe it is to accept messages coming from unknown domains and addresses.

IP Address: Internet Protocol is a unique address that identifies a device on the internet or a local network.  IP is the set of rules governing the format of data sent via the internet or local network.
