The reasons why the Anti-Spam component in Computer Protection from Kaspersky PURE 2.0 does not use RBL are given below: 

  • RBL is server-oriented 
  • The RBL service functions slowly (using DNS-queries) 
  • The IP-addresses of the addressee can be correctly checked on the SMTP-server only 
  • IP-address of the addressee cannot be detected by personal anti-spam 
  • No one is responsible for the information in public RBL 
  • RBL is used as the means of a competition 
  • Your provider or your recipient network can get into RBL implementation 
  • User cannot delete the blocked address from RBL. Most of the RBL services communicate to providers only, but ignore queries of common users. 
  • Home user does not have the information which RBL service to trust.
