LinuxMagic BMS - Blacklist Mastering System - Mail Servers

Using the BMS System with Mail Server

Many people are familiar with the traditional way of using Blacklists with Mail Servers. However, using RBL Style lists does have it's drawbacks and limitations. Two of the main limitations are the need to do DNS style lookups to remote locations, and the difficulty in accessing multiple lists. With our BMS System, and the IP Address Mastering System, these limitations are removed. AS well, by accessing it as a simple executable, it can be called not only at the connection level, ie TCPServer but at many levels including kernel level, application level and more.

This results in the best advantage of all, which we take advantage of in our own MagicMail Server, is the ability to use the strictest of lists at the global level, but allow users to define whitelists to honour, so they don't complain if they can't get mail from a location that is on one of the global blacklists.

However, you CAN use this BMS System in more traditional manners as well, so that it can work with virtually any Mail Server, regardless of OS. However, we are sorry that we may not have binaries to work with all mail servers on this site. If you need binaries that are not here, please let us know and we will do our best to get it out right away.

Here are some example ways to use the BMS Client Lookup Programs with common mail servers:

  • Qmail
  • SendMail
  • Postfix
  • GroupWise
  • Lotus Notes
  • Exchange Server
  • TCPServer
  • Inetd
  • MagicMail
