What Is A Truncate Blacklist?

The Truncate Blacklist compiles spam coming from malware, IP Addresses used by spammers, IP Addresses used to send bulk mail, and those who did not comply with the CAN-SPAM Act.  The Truncate Blacklist is a virus-based blacklist, which means they list individual IP Addresses of email servers that have been found guilty of sending spam mail that includes viruses or malware.

How Does The Truncate Blacklist Work?

IP Addresses flagged for sending virus infected spam are automatically added to the Truncate Blacklist.  This blacklist works quickly, IP Addresses can be added within 10 minutes or less when the software detects a spamming spree.  It’s also incredibly accurate since it’s updated every 10 minutes.  The Truncate Blacklist uses a system called “Message Sniffer Spam and Virus Protection”.  This system uses an advanced learning machine to quickly build IP Address reputations.  The blacklist constantly monitors conversations between thousands of systems.

How Can I Remove Myself From The Truncate Blacklist?

The Truncate Blacklist does not offer an option to request to be removed from the database.  You can see the full details here.  Time is of the essence with this blacklist since IP Addresses will automatically expire after a certain period of time, if they are not flagged again.  The IP Address on the blacklist is monitored for activity.  If there is no “bad” activity, the blacklist will drop the IP Address from the list.  Please note, the timeline of being dropped does depend on the severity of the spam that landed you on this list.
