Welcome to SpamRATS!

Not another infected PC or BotNet sending me spam... Well, maybe if you blocked the RATS at the SMTP level of your server, this would not be a problem. We have several lists of IP Addresses that have all the indicators of being RATS, and you can use them just like any of your favourite RBLs.
