This is an interesting thread. I was actually going to post a query about
the effectiveness/relevance of blacklists. I have 2 main email addresses on
different providers. 1 uses the SCBl and the other uses Brightmail. On both
accounts I have seen a significant increase in spam emails which make it
past both filters. Clearly some spammers are finding effective ways to get
past the listings by hopping IPs.
I have no way on either account to check the mail that gets blocked. It goes
away and I don't ever see it.
