Welcome to devRant!
stacked27384yLol, I must show this to a few coworkers of mine
ytho11074yTrue story. Over half of my emails I delete without opening them. They have nothing of informational value.
Hel8y3424yAnd how about Spamhaus reading every mail of yours?
About 2 years ago we hosted an ESP, we thought in couldn't harm, Spamhaus thought otherwise. At a certain point a lot of /24 IP spaces were ruined. Spamhaus refused to delist them (wish I kind of understand, but for us this wasn't a solution).
So we decided to find out how Spamhaus works. In total, we took 3 x 200 IPs, 3 x 200 newly registered domains, and 200 emailadressed with different destination servers. We did the following:
* For every one of the 200 IPs we took one domain and one emailadress and send everyone a single mail, result: every IP and domain was listed by Spamhaus. All of them with one common hop in the traceroute.
* Then, we repeated the test, but with TLS encryption between SMTP servers. About 1/3 was listed by Spamhaus (some ISPs give them info too).
* Next, I called our network guy, asked him to change all outbound routes to another route. Repeated the test without encryption. About a 1/3 listed...
