antispam French government provides spam lists

It is not always easy to maintain a good, clean bulk emailing list, but legitimate bulk senders do it routinely. Anybody can do it if they learn how and follow best practice. France might be attempting to use such a "list rental" model. Both the examples we encountered were sent from SendinBlue's network. SendinBlue is an established ESP in France. It has the capability to properly manage a list rental service. France and SendinBlue, please take this hint that the list you are providing to your [...] [more]

antispam How the Outlook.com Spam Fighters program works

The Spam Fighters program asks a random sample of users in Outlook.com if they’d like to volunteer to help fighting spam. These invitations are sent periodically, and they are randomly sampled in [more]

antispam Google and Amazon and B2B spam

And, for recipients, that’s a problem. Spam filters aren’t going to block this sort of mail, as they can’t easily tell it is this sort of mail. It’s coming from Google MTAs, just like a lot of legitimate mail does. In terms of sheer volume it’s dwarfed by botnet sourced mail or dubious B2B manufacturing spam out of Shenzhen. But, unlike most of that, it’s in your inbox, in front of your eyeballs and costing you time and focus. And that’s much more expensive than network infrastructure or mailbox [...] [more]
