HPU Spam Block Lists


Hawaii Pacific University employs different techniques to block spam. Thousands upon thousands of messages are blocked every day. Forefront for Microsoft Exchange is used to protect users from viruses and spam. One of Microsoft Exchange's built in spam filters is called IP Block List Providers. The providers created lists called DNSBL, DNS-based Block List:

Spamcop - http://www.spamcop.net/
Spamhaus - http://www.spamhaus.org/
Passive Spam Block List - http://psbl.surriel.com/

These three block lists are used by many organizations to block spam. Each employ different techniques in gathering information about servers used to send out spam.
