Krafft" <email@example.com> Subject: Re: a MAPS replacement I'm not sure we actually have a lot in common other than "we both use DNS to do RBL lookups". The RFCI project is mainly focused on the "idiot complex" rather than the spammer problem. i.e., I care less about attacking spammers than people who don't know how to configure their mail server right, or how to put proper info in their WHOIS record. Now, there's an intersection, because the biggest SOURCE of abuse/postmaster/whois bounces is from people complaining about spam to $ISP, and $ISP being stupid in their configuration, hence they get listed here. I'm not saying I'm unwilling to help, but since my zones all use domains (where yours would almost assuredly use IP addresses), there's not a lot of intersection... what little there is (submissions, etc.) is written so poorly on my end that I don't think you'd want to use it. ;-) But if you can think of something you need, let me know and I'll see what I can do. :) D  for purposes of my zones anyway both, RBL and rfc-ignorant.org have their pros, but also many cons. i know that my domains block a whole lot of regular email through the use of MAPS. in the end, it all boils down to the sending side understanding the Mailerdaemon response, and taking appropriate action. unfortunately, the majority of people are blinded and fooled and dumbed by micro$oft and have no clue. plus, most postmasters on this earth don't even know what SMTP stands for. oh well, but considering that i have at least 2000 spam blocks per day due to MAPS, i am all pro... martin; (greetings from the heart of the sun.) \____ echo mailto: !#^."<*>"|tr "<*> mailto:" net@madduck -- first snow, then silence. this thousand dollar screen dies so beautifully.
