Default Email Blacklist Suggestions

Recently one of our biggest blacklist providers went out of business. As a result, there has been a significant increase in spam and harmful emails. Does anyone know of a few good/valid blacklist providers? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Greg

Hi,

What are you using for you email server and or webmail? Can you not just set up a blacklist from within your email server and then send it out to everyone.

Cheers!

spamhaus are a fairly good black list provider
as is SORBS and SURBL



edit, - when i say that they are good I mean that tey are some of the largest, and they seem to (in my experience) block quite a few addresses,

however my experience is sadly based on the side that they've generated false positives,

as wmorri said, you could generate your own black list, however, you'll usually find that this just means that you spend the whole time playing catchup.
