Responsible Anti-spam Sites - Letter M

Mailbase (31 Jan 1999)
AUP: Junk Email

AUP: SparkNET's Majordomo Service Guidelines

Majorodomo.Com (no connection to GreatCircle.COM, the original author of the majordomo package) runs a mailing list service site and their guidelines prohibit use of their site for spamming.

Mangonet Web Design (22 Nov 1997)
AUP: Mangonet Web Design TOS

AUP: McHenryCom's TOS
Abuse contact: abuse@mc.net

McHenryCom has disabled relay and engages in IP blocking. They also charge any users who spam $5,000 per incident.

MCI (2 Nov 1996)

Abuse contact: abuse@mci.net

Except for one incident in which - it was reported - Cyberpromo rooked MCI into accepting a contract without a Terms of Service clause, MCI has acted quickly to block spam.

AUP: Accceptable Use Policy

MichNet provided the feed to Autonet who in turn provided a feed to the spammers at Pwrnet and finally convinced Autonet to drop Pwrnet on March 1, 1997.

MerlinWeb (28 Jun 1999)
Other domain names: merlinmail.com
AUP: Accaptable Use
Abuse contact: jking@merlinmail.com

MettersMEDIA, Inc. (16 Mar 1999)
Other domain names: mmnet.net
AUP: Acceptable Use Policy
Abuse contact: abuse@usbol.com

Blocking is used to prevent spam from known spammers and reverse DNS is done on a sender's domain before e-mail is accepted.

Microserv Computer Technologies, Inc. (15 May 1999)
Other domain names: microserv.com
AUP: System Abuse Policy
Abuse contact: abuse@microserv.com

AUP: Conditions of Service
Abuse contact: abuse@ml.org

Having had their domain name forged in a spam, Monolith hates spam even more. They also maintain a domain name directory but, unlike the InterNIC, actually delete registrations with invalid contact information.
