If you are a spammer or Internet marketer, please refer to the Definition of Spam for the type of emails that SORBS considers spam.

Information in the open proxy and relay databases, are statements of fact for a given time and address by SORBS. All other entries are based upon suspicion and/or opinion of the SORBS administrators, unless otherwise stated. SORBS is of the opinion that all entries created by the SORBS administrators are correct at the time of publishing. If you have been listed as a proxy server or open relay and would like to be retested, please refer to the Proxy/Open Retest Relay FAQ.

If you are listed in the 'spammers' database, it is because you, your machine, or a previous user of the address sent unsolicited bulk, commercial, religious or political email to one of the administrators of SORBS or any of the spam traps SORBS operates. You will only be removed from the SORBS database at the discretion of the SORBS and/or the administrator who had to deal with the spam that was sent.  Please read the Spam Database FAQ for more information.

If you are in the Zombie Netblock space, you are using IP space of which, in SORBS' opinion, you are not the rightful owner. You are welcome to submit any information to persuade the administrators that you are the rightful owner, but please understand it is the sole discretion of the administrators of SORBS as to whether the information is adequate for removal. Suitable information is usually an email from the responsible Regional Internet Registry (RIR) indicating that you are confirmed as the rightful owner of any network. If you have purchased the network from a former employer, you will be asked to show detail that a legal transaction occurred. Please refer to the Zombie Netblock FAQ for more information.

In the event that your ISP has issued the listed address space to you, you will need to resolve the issue directly with your ISP. SORBS does not get involved in disputes between an ISP and their customer.
