What is an RBL

An RBL or Real-time Blacklist is an antispam mechanism consisting of a list of IP addresses or hostnames that are known spam sources. There are many RBL sources available across the internet, both free and commercial.

Roaring Penguin RBLs

CanIt users have access to several different lists that are populated by the activity of our users and curated by our staff. You can find a description of these different lists here.

For more information on our RBLs, including how to request removal from our lists, see this page.

Note that these lists are constantly changing and so an address's status at the time of your check may not reflect it's status at the time a message comes in. For CanIt admins, the Administration->Search Logs tool will allow you to find out more information an why a message was blocked.
