Global Blacklist

Post by rodolfor » 2006-12-30 12:06

Hi Martin.
The whitelist in 4.4 is fantastic.
Why not to ADD A GLOBAL BLACKLIST, with the same features of the whitelist except that a message matching the blacklist is rejected (with a message) ?

thanks.

This is just my 2 cents, but any list that has to be manually maintained is never good for the long term, as things change and people forget to update these lists. Some stage in the future legitimate email will be issued with a blacklisted IP and then this person will never get through.

It might be helpful to some people but not me.

Well.
Infact I think to a short-term function.
If I need to block immediately an IP/domain/address, now I can use only a rule wich is not simple and I think is slow.

The black and white list are methods to correct the other systems (black/grey/surbl list) and to do a "fliyng" operation.

What about a list with a set-able "timer"?

IP: _________ Days to Keep in BL: ______ ( 0 for infinite )

There's several IP's I'd like to Black Out for a couple weeks or so.

I like yinrunning's idea of a time period. Though would like to add that is should ban the blacklisted IP from all mail traffic (SMTP/POP/IMAP).

My issue is with script kiddies trying to gain access to pop acounts.

I'd really like to see this feature.
And if Jon could add this to his grey-list viewer, it would be easy to block IP addresses of known bot-net nodes.
I'm not worried about missing out on legitimate mail that way, as the source IPs will never become legitimate mail servers.

That would be easily added to my script if the blacklist was ever implemented. However there is still the issue of cached whitelist and most likely blacklist entries in hmail that would mean hmail needs to be stopped and started to make use of my script as I place entries directly into DB.

The only other option would be to script it with COM API access required as well which I was trying to avoid.

I hope there will be global black list its very good idea, there is a bunch of IPs that i would like to block (not blocked in black lists )

p.s. Mybe for global black list you could have auto reply option blocked by %host% contact admin etc.. in case there is some mistake etc...

Oh yes a blacklist would be fine and with the possibility (yinrunning's idea) of adding a time for whitelist and blacklist this would be almost perfect!

If a blacklist was implemented a bounce message would need to be optional per ip address / range added so as not to cause more spam.
