TECHNICAL REQUIREMENT: BOTH access methods (direct query and RSYNC) require that your spam filtering hardware or software is using your own locally-hosted DNS server to provide answers to queries.
RARE EXCEPTION: Some VERY rare anti-spam systems (typically custom programmed, and using RSYNC access to download the complete data files) bypass the DNS server altogether for lookups.
FOR DIRECT QUERIES: (not RSYNC)
This sign-up form generates a text request for a free trial. Then, at the END of this process, you MUST copy and paste that text into a new e-mail, addressed to a particular e-mail address (provided later on this page). Nothing generated on this page gets sent to us automatically outside you manually sending that e-mail, at the completion of this form.Also, if you close or click away from this form, then come back to it later, you will probably lose all past data entry. (But since this ONLY takes a few minutes to complete... why not just finish it NOW?)
NOTICE: In the next section, you will have the ability to easily toggle between the RSYNC and Direct Query options with the click of a checkbox, helping you to instantly see the price differences for your declared usage level.
What IP addresses, IP subnets, or IP ranges... should be granted permission for your access the lists.if RSYNC ACCESS: Enter YOUR public IPs from which your RSYNC requests originate.if DIRECT QUERIES: Enter YOUR public IPs from which your DNS queries from your locally-hosted DNS server originate.WARNING: We are NOT asking for your MX records (or their IPs). The public IP(s) that your e-mail traffic goes to, and comes from... are NOT necessarily the same IPs from which your DNS server traffic (or RSYNC traffic) travels . They MIGHT be the same, but don’t assume that! The question above asks about where your “DNS queries (or RSYNCs) ...originate”... nothing in there asks for your MX record IPs (a.k.a. your mail server IPs). If you were about to put your mail server IPs in the box below, and you are not sure that these are the actual public IPs from which your DNS queries (or RSYNC requests) are sent, then you need to re-read step 1.(Again, entering the entire range or subnet encompassing your actual currently used IP is encouraged, so as to cover all possiblities.)
We are NOT asking about which tools you use as an end user. We are asking about which ones you help run or manage (etc). (hint: most should answer “no”)
The main reason for this question is to custom target the instructions we send. That often facilitates an easier and faster setup experience! Likewise, if you desire Spam Assassin rules, please include in your answer that you use SA, and desire SA rules!. The OTHER reason we ask this is because, if you happen to be using an anti-spam system that ALREADY licenses invaluement, but find that your DIRECT access of our data STILL helps your spam filtering (this actually happens sometimes!), then that situation may entitle you to a large discount in your price. But, without asking, you may not even know (or couldn’t possibly even know?) for sure if your existing solution already licenses invaluement, and we cannot know that if you skip this question. Therefore, you lose that possible discount if we do not have this information.
Anonymous access to our data is NEVER allowed. Otherwise, spammers and cyber criminals would often request free trials. Therefore, please input your contact information, such as business name, website address, phone number, email address, and address. Please also include YOUR name (and the names and e-mail addresses of others who are involved in this process).
