Delisting From Blacklists

First you need to know whether you are black listed or not, avail our service- which searches Blacklists and helps you in finding whether you are black listed or not. If you are one whose IP has been black listed, each Blacklist has its own procedure of getting your IP removed from the Blacklist.

Blacklists allow them few days to clean up and they later remove accused IP from their list.

If you are listed on MAPS RBL, you need to contact them by email - Email: or phone (if necessary) Phone: +1.408.453.6277 x1, state the IP address you would like to have removed, mention about the steps you are going to clean-up your act.When contacted them with a remove request, an Investigator (if possible, the original Investigator who listed the IP in the MAPS RBL) will start a dialogue with you to discuss what actions caused the listing, what has been done to resolve these issues and what will be done to prevent them from occurring in the future. If necessary, the Investigator will ask about abuse handling policies, acceptable use policies and any problems encountered in the notification.

These discussions will be documented and forwarded to MAPS Management with a recommendation for the listing (removal, probation, maintain listing). There is a probationary period where the IP is removed from the list but can be reactivated without a new nomination if there are new occurrences. The probated listing is monitored for an appropriate period of time to ensure that there are no new instances of spamming activity. If there is no new spamming activity at the end of the probationary period, the listing is removed.
