Janco Publish Spam Domain List

. November 10, 2010 . 0 Comments

Janco Associates has just published a list of domains that are spamming businesses in the United States. The CEO of Janco, Mr. Victor Janulaitis said, “We have decided to publicly publish a list of frequently spamming domains hoping that this will put pressure on those domains that are listed.” Janulaitis added, “We hope that more businesses and individuals will begin to add domain filters and bounce messages back to those site.”

Janco has found that there are a significant number of sites that do not attempt to follow the CANSPAM requirements. In particular are site in the .ru (Russian) domain. If businesses and individuals who control spam filters begin to add these domains to their filters then it will become more difficult for spammers to distribute their emails. When this begins to impact valid users in those domains then more pressure will be placed on the ISPs who host them.

Janco will dedicate specific pages on its web site to publish not only spammer domains but key words that can be added to filters. Where possible Janco will use wild card characters so that entire ranges of domains and banned words can be used in the process to minimize the amount of spam that users receive. The list are contained in a format that is easily copied with cut and paste directly from Janco’s web pages.

Janulaitis said, “The two primary pages that can be used for as a basis for the cut and paste are http://www.e-janco.com/Banned_email_domains.html and http://www.e-janco.com/Banned_email_text.html.” These pages are available immediately and have directly inks to over a dozen social networking sites.

Janco is a Mountain States based consulting firm that publishes the IT Salary Survey, Browser Market Data, and the IT Infrastructure HandiGuide® series of books used by IT, finance, human resources and other professionals as the source of information on topics from policies and procedures, to job descriptions.
