Newburyport, MA – August 7, 2007 – DNSstuff.com, a global leader in DNS knowledge and tools with one of the largest communities of IT professionals on the Web, today unveiled new survey data demonstrating the significance of monitoring your IP from blacklists.

“RBLalerts allow a company to be notified immediately if any of their domain’s mail server IPs are blacklisted, on which list(s), and what steps can be taken to remedy the situation. This proactive approach makes the life of IT professional much easier. Not knowing if your vital business emails get through can create much angst to someone responsible for email in an organization.”, says Paul Parisi, CTO for DNSstuff.com.

The new RBLalert service from DNSstuff.com queries over 130 blacklists and provides notice any time an IP address is listed or de-listed from one of these services. The service requires only an IP address to monitor and an email address for notification. Each RBLalert from DNSstuff.com includes a timestamp of the notice, the name of the blacklist, and instructions or recommendations for removal if necessary.

“Email is the lifeline between our business and our customers, and being improperly blacklisted not only tarnishes our credibility but it directly impacts our business in a negative way,” said Brad Hall, founder and CEO of EntertainmentCareers.net. “The problem is often compounded because it can take hours and hundreds of returned emails before you even know there’s an issue. DNSstuff alerts us before the problem spirals out of control – providing total peace of mind even while we sleep.”

More information on the RBLalert service is available at www.dnsstuff.com.
