AHBL Blacklist To Be Retired

The maintainers of the Abusive Hosts Blocking List announced on March 26 that the list will cease to exist not later than Saturday, March 29, 2014.

Mail server operators using this list should take note and adjust their server configurations accordingly.

The maintainers are giving the community plenty of lead time here, but those who don’t adjust will find themselves likely blocking all inbound mail starting on January 1, 2015, a day when the maintainers promise to “wildcard the DNSBl zones”.
