Thank you for your interest in Trustic. We regret to inform you that we are no longer taking registrations and will soon be closing the service. We have determined that the system as it currently is designed will not achieve the level of accuracy that we require, and an inaccurate system is worse than no system.

Registrations have been disabled. The email system has been disabled. The DNS blocklist will remain for a couple of weeks, but it has been configured to never return a match. Please reconfigure your mail servers to not query the blocklist.

We remain confident that the problem of spam is a solvable problem. Thank you for your help with this great experiment.

    Yep, this is sad to hear. There are
    some people getting together to talk
    about getting a replacement service up.

    That's unfortunate.
    However, there are many other free DNS RBL's.
    I use SpamCop's, and I haven't had any complaints of wrongly rejected email.

    Of course, it doesn't catch everything, so I also do address-verification in sendmail, and I use Bogofilter (http://bogofilter.sourceforge.net/).
