What is a UCEPROTECTL3 Blacklist?

A UCEPROTECTL2/ L3 Blacklist works to flag IP Addresses from Internet Service Providers that have a bad reputation.  The UCEPROTECTL2/ L3 Blacklist also maintains a report of subnets. Subnet Blacklists come in handy when Internet Service Providers host entire companies that send bulk spam mail.  Another duty of the UCEPROTECTL2/ L3 Blacklist is to list single IP Addresses that have multiple domains. If a company sends unsolicited bulk email (UBE), the entire range is in jeopardy of being blacklisted.  The UCEPROTECTL2/ L3 Blacklist has a primary goal of forcing administrators or Internet Service Providers to educate their users about email abuse and take preventative measures to stop it from happening.

How Do I Find Out If I Am On The UCEPROTECTL3 Blacklist?

If you have a bad email reputation and are constantly sending unsolicited emails, you may end up on the UCEPROTECTL2/ L3 Blacklist. You may also end up on this Blacklist because you are on the same Internet Service Provider as someone sending mass spam emails. The easiest way for you to determine if you are on a blacklist is to simply sync an inbox under the domain in question to our platform. Every inbox synced to Warmup Inbox gets run by the 24 most common IPv4 blacklists to determine if your inbox and associated domain has been listed on one.

How Can I Remove Myself From The UCEPROTECTL3 Blacklist?

Luckily for anyone accidentally listed on this blacklist, IP Addresses on the list are removed 7 days after the last reported spam was detected.  This automatic process is completely free of charge.  You are not allowed to manually request this removal.  If you wish to expedite the process of being removed, the Organization accepts payments or “donations”.  You can find out more about the removal process here.  

How do I reduce my risk of getting onto the UCEPROTECTL3 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)

Unsolicited Bulk Email (UBE): Email sent to a large audience without their consent.  

IP: An Internet Protocol address is a numerical label assigned to each device connected to a computer network that uses the Internet Protocol for communication. An IP address serves two main functions: host or network interface identification and location addressing
