Listing criteria
If an IP is blacklisted on MegaRBL, that means that an unsolicited e-mail has been receive in one of the team’s spamtrap. MegaRBL does not take reports and only function with spamtrap and honeypot in order to avoid any abuse.

It’s important to note that any mail receive in one of those trap will be unsolicited and therefore the IP listed.

Spam-based Blacklists are those that will list either single IP Addresses or entire ranges that have actually received Spam, i. e. Unsolicited Bulk Email (UBE) in their Spamtraps from an IP-Address. This could be a result of a compromised email account, an Open Relay, or simply sending mass emails / marketing and not following best practices according to the “CAN-SPAM Act of 2003” (ref:)Megarbl Requires A Manual Delisting Request
This blacklist does support a manual request to remove or delist your IP Address from their database.
