Having trouble getting URL scanning working.

Post by philip.arny » Mon Aug 24, 2020 10:32 pm

Hello there! I'm running MailEnable Professional 10.31 on Windows Server 2012 R2.
I'm not having much luck getting my URL blacklisting working.

I've registered my IP address with the Barracuda blacklist.

A couple of questions:
* where can I find known bad URL/IP addresses to test in emails and in the MESPAMLookup.exe utility?
* does the URL blacklisting log it's filter activities anywhere? I've been looking in MTA, SMTP, and FIlter logs, haven't spotted anything logged when I send what I believe to be bad URL in an email; also, so far none of my supposedly bad URLs have been replaced.

I'm pasting in the registry entry below with my Reverse DNL blacklist settings: I ?think? this applies to both the DNS & the URL lookups.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Code: Select all
