MIPSpace is a list of IP Addresses associated with known commercial marketing companies. You can contribute to this list or use this list as you see fit. If you are a commercial marketing company don't expect to get removed from this list, however if you want to help and support this endevour, or if you wish to help us identify the exact IP Ranges you send commercial mail from, we welcome the support.
We believe users and ISPs reserve the right to block any or all incoming marketing emails.
Aaarrgg! The bane of existence for users and ISPs alike. A user goes online and buys a ticket to his favourite show, or fills out a survey for his favourite cola, and next thing you know he gets inundated with offerings. This is not spam in the traditional sense, that is to say, you did agree to receive these offerings and they come from (mostly) reputable marketing firms.
And sure, you can unsubscribe, but most users are afraid or unwilling to do this. What do most end users do about this? They change email addresses, or complain to their ISPs.
"Do Not Call" lists have been tried before, but for the most part they don't work or have backfired. But if a person can call the post office and say, "No more commercial marketing mail..." or effectively, "No more junk mail," why can't they do this for their email service? Well now they can. By allowing your users the option to choose, "No more email from marketing companies, " it can provide an incredible sense of relief for them, and for your email administrators. We do not, however, recommend using this list as a global blacklist as these are legitimate mailings and companies, but you can selectively let your users opt out by rejecting email coming from marketing companies.
One of the reasons why marketing email is so bad is that some marketing companies just send too many offerings and in some cases people receive up to 10 to 20 per day. But no matter what the reason, we strongly support and believe in the rights of people to say, "No more commercial offerings."
