amispammer - The way to know if your MX IPs are blacklisted
amispammer [ -v 0|1 ] [ -i <IPaddress> |
-d <domain> ] [ -T 0|1 ] [ -f
emailfrom -t emailto -s smtp_server ] [
is a tool to check via command line if an IP address or domain
MX IPs appear currently on any blacklist because of spam reported/reputation.
The main target to use it are system admininistrators or security
officers/consultants who want to check by command line whether an IP address
they are responsible or they are auditing (respectively) is blacklisted.
To get it, amispammer
will check in over 90 popular blacklisting lists,
used by almost every antispam professional devices and software.
Optionally, it is possible to send an email to some recipient when it finish the
checks with the different lists where the IP address appears. This is very
useful if this task is done automatically by night for example, or even more
frequently, in organizations where email has critic importance. It will only
send an email in case the IP add ress appears in some blacklist.
- <IP address>: IP address to check. In A.B.C.D
- <domain>: Domain to be checked. Useful when there are
several MX records.
If no IP/domain is supplied with -i or -d flags, amISpammer will assume it
has to check the public IP address from it is being executed, and it will
detect it automatically
- 0|1: Disable|Enable the queries using threads. Performance
will be improved and query time will decrease but more memory and CPU
resources will be required. By default -T 1 is enabled (with threads
- emailfrom: email account (firstname.lastname@example.org) who will send
- emailto: recipient email account (email@example.com) who
will receive the email
- smtp_server: SMTP Server IP Address where the email will be
sent. By Default: localhost
- 0|1: Verbose detail.
0 (by default if nothing is specified) -> It will just show blacklists where
the IP address appears as reported. In this mode, we will be able to send an
email with results.
1 -> It will show on terminal every blacklist and the result of checking one
by one (blacklisted/not blacklisted)
