What is blacklisting?

Blacklisting is a process of actively monitoring the Internet for reports of email traffic fro a variety of sources sending unsolicited commercial email (SPAM) and then publicly listing that known information on Internet sites for others to reference as a measure to fight SPAM. Many ISP’s and independent organizations then use these blacklist databases as a reference filter applied to their inbound mail servers to aid in preventing SPAM and to encourage internet security.
