no entry in l2.apews.org but WhatIsMyAddress

Post by thunderbird_japan » Mon Apr 03, 2017 3:37 am

I am Yoshiteru Matsuo, have just registered in WhatIsMyIPAddress.com Community.
These days I have used WhatIsMyIPAddreses.com site to look-up if our servers' IP addresses are listed in any blacklists.
I accessed to http://whatismyipaddress.com/blacklist-check and Checked Blacklists.
The result shows our IP addresses are listed in "l2.apews.org".

Then I visited apews.org site (http://www.apews.org/?) and lookuped the IP addresses.
The result shows our IP addresses are NOT listed; "We found no entry matching your search".

Please let me know why WhatIsMyIPAddresses.com shows our IP addresses are listed in "l2.apews.org",
though apews.org show the addresses are NOT listed.
And How to prevent WhatIsMyIPAddresses.com to show our IP addreseses are listed in "l2.apews.org".

Our IP addreesses are;
221.241.189.165
182.171.83.197
They are used for http proxy servers, not for mail servers.

From viewtopic.php?f=8&t=3941
When it comes to the APEWS blacklist:
  • Don't worry
  • Don't post to any USENET group about it -- it won't help
  • VERY few mail admins use APEWS to block email because they are VERY aggressive -- they blacklist 40%+ of the internet.
  • If a bounce message does not specifically mention APEWS then the block is very likely NOT because of APEWS.
  • If the bounce message DOES mention APEWS call your contact or send them email from a different domain (hotmail, gmail, etc) and ask them to remove the APEWS blacklist check at their mail server.

Just as a heads up the APEWS website is returning inconsistent results with their DNS based blacklists.

All the IP addresses I've manually checked that have a history of being listed are showing listed from the DNS lookup but are showing no results from the website lookup. It's possible their website is having database lookup issues.

Hi, Chrispcritters;
Thank you for your information apews.org database might be with some issues.

Now apews.org's lookup returns "We found no entry matching your search" with our ip addresses.
How can I make WhatIsMyIPAddresses.com not to show that our IP addreseses are listed in "l2.apews.org" as Blacklists Check result?

As lisati said, you really shouldn't worry about APEWS. No admin in their right mind uses them. Hopefully this is an indication that they are starting the process of shutting down their services.

At this time we'll continue to return results based on their DNS platform.
