Mail is a major source of communication for people these days and any disruption can have a detrimental effect on personal and business day to day activity. If you are experiencing mail issues at the moment this may be related to UCE Protect recently placing over a thousand new ASNs on their blacklist. To view the list of effected ASNs and the number of new ASNs added, please check the following links:
A number of legal abuse teams have reached out to UCE Protect in order to remove their ASN from the blacklist. Ultimately, UCE Protect want all of the newly blocked ASNs to pay for express delisting. Like all providers EveryHost, does not pay for blacklist delisting as it is a service outside of our control. Paying for delisting on blacklists only leads to an increase in blacklisting overall and ultimately hurts the industry.
UCE Protect claims to automatically delist ASNs after 1 week, which we hope will happen but as it is outside of our control, we cannot provide any guarantees regarding this.
If you are currently effected, it is recommend to do the following:
1. To send your mail via IPv6. UCE Protect does not blacklist email sent via IPv6. All major email providers now support IPv6.
2. Ask the receiving party to contact their mail provider and request that they don’t use the UCE Protect blacklist for the time being.
We thank you for your understanding on this. EveryHost is committed to having an open trusted platform and support and it is through the cooperation of users that will allow us to continually improve our service going forward.
