We’re delighted to provide our commercial customers with easy access to our IP and domain Reputation Checker via the Customer Portal. Here's an outline of the benefits, a quick overview of this new functionality, and a step-by-step guide to using the Checker in the Customer Portal.
Here’s a quick review of how to use the Checker in the Customer Portal:
To take an in-depth look at this functionality keep reading, or view this video.
Once you have logged into the Customer Portal, search for an IP, domain, or hostname, using the search bar in the header. You can do this from any page within the portal.
If no listing exists, you will see the following:
Where a listing does exist, you will see something similar to this:
To get more details on the listing, click on Show detail.
Suppose the IP address you searched for has an SBL listing. In that case, removal requests from this blocklist can only be made, via email, by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) responsible for the IP in question. An ISP’s abuse team usually handles these requests. SBL removals cannot be done via the Checker.
Where an IP is listed on additional blocklists, e.g. CSS, XBL or PBL, you will not be able to request removal from these blocklists until the SBL listing has been resolved.
Take time to read ALL the information provided by the delisting team. Now is not the time to rush ahead and request removal if you have not taken the recommended remediation steps.
If you do, the resources will end up re-listed, and where frequent re-listings occur, automatic removals are denied. This enables the delisting team to engage with you directly to resolve the issues before another removal takes place.
Once you’re confident you’ve resolved the issue(s) that led to your resource listing, check the box at the bottom of the listing information page and click Next steps.
Complete the pop-up box, select your name from the drop-down box, explain what remediation steps you’ve taken and why you wish to remove the IP or domain and click Submit.
If an automatic removal has been allowed, then you will see the following screen, and no further action is required:
Where automatic removals are not permitted, then the Checker will automatically raise a ticket and navigate you to the Ticket Center:
You can access this from two places:
1. Via the top menu from Support / Ticket Center:
2. If tickets are waiting for your review, i.e., the delisting team has responded to you, a notification will appear on your Dashboard:
From the Ticket Center, you can sort by various fields by clicking on the table header:
To view the full details of a removal request, including correspondence with the delisting team, click View next to the relevant ticket in the Ticket Center.
Simply view/open the relevant ticket to send them a message. Whenever the delisting team responds to a ticket, you will receive an email notification advising you that a response is waiting in the Ticket Center.
We’re always looking for ways to improve the tools we’re providing our customers, so please reach out to us via the contact form in the Customer Portal with suggestions for future releases.
This API provides access to multiple datasets containing metadata relating to compromised IP addresses. These IP addresses may be exhibiting compromised behavior, including malware, worm, and trojan infections, and SMTP-specific traffic emitting spam, or cybercriminals are using them to control infected computers – botnet command & controllers.
The breadth of data available via an easily consumable API provides security developers with scores of opportunities.
To ensure our DNSBLs protect your email stream, a simple tool is available called the Blocklist Tester. It’s quick and easy to use; once you have verified an email address associated with your email server, test emails are sent. These emails contain resources listed on our blocklists and should be rejected.
Once the test is complete, a full detailed report is available, and the SMTP exchange of each email sent is available to help you understand where any problems may lie in your configuration.
Spamhaus’ Data Query Service (DQS) is an affordable and effective solution to protect your email infrastructure and users.
Using your existing email protection solution, you will be able to block spam and other related threats including malware, ransomware, and phishing emails.
The service has never failed and utilizes the longest established DNSBLs in the industry.

If you've been using Spamhaus Project's free DNSBLs you need to be aware this is a legacy service. With an easy config change you could be getting more value from the Spamhaus data.

I write this article for all of you out there who aren't deeply embedded in this industry because the people I work with are remarkable. The world should know what they are doing to quietly protect all those who say “Spamwho?” be that your grandma or the network nerd at work.
