UCEPROTECTL3 Blacklist: How To Remove It

Discovering that your domain/IP is on the UCEPROTECTL3 blacklist can be perplexing and frustrating, particularly if you haven't engaged in any wrongdoing. The good news is that you have the ability to rectify this situation and restore email deliverability. Don't worry; we've got you covered. In this article, we delve into the reasons behind your IP/domain blacklisting and offer potential solutions.

If you've been sending unsolicited cold emails from an email account with a subpar reputation, you may find yourself on the UCEPROTECTL3 blacklist.

What is the UCEPROTECTL3 Blacklist?

The UCEPROTECTL3 Blacklist identifies IP addresses associated with Internet Service Providers (ISPs) that have a questionable email reputation and also monitors subnets. Subnet Blacklists become relevant when ISPs house entire companies involved in mass spam email distribution. UCEPROTECTL3 is tasked with cataloging individual IP addresses linked to multiple domains or email servers. The risk of the entire IP range landing on the blacklist arises when an organization sends unsolicited bulk emails (UBE).

UCEPROTECT operates with three levels of blacklists:

  1. UCEPROTECTL1: Lists single IP addresses.
  2. UCEPROTECTL2: Lists multiple IP addresses.
  3. UCEPROTECTL3: Lists entire IP address ranges.The primary objective of the UCEPROTECTL3 Blacklist is to prompt ISPs or administrators to educate users about email abuse and malpractices, encouraging preventive actions.

UCEPROTECTL3 relies on data from diverse sources, including spam traps, spam filter detection, user submissions, and honeypots, to maintain a comprehensive IP blocklist.

How to Identify UCEPROTECTL3 Blacklisting?

Typically, businesses engaging in unsolicited bulk emails with a poor sender reputation may find themselves on the UCEPROTECTL2/L3 Blacklist.

You might also be blacklisted if you share the same Internet Service Provider with an individual or business sending out unsolicited bulk emails. The simplest way to check for blacklisting is to connect an inbox from the relevant domain to MXToolbox and use the MX Lookup feature. This tool scans your email address through 24 common IPv4 blacklists, checking for any blacklist listings of your inbox and connected domains.

How to Remove Your IP from UCEPROTECTL3 Blacklist?

There are two ways to get off the UCEPROTECTL3 blocklist: automatic removal after seven consecutive days without a spam report or payment to the organization for removal.

Automatic removal occurs if your IP, accidentally blacklisted on UCEPROTECTL3, receives no spam reports for seven consecutive days. However, if you want a quicker removal, you can expedite the process by providing monetary donations to the organization. It's important to note that Salesforge doesn't endorse paying removal fees from any blacklist, and submitting a removal request without addressing the underlying issue may result in re-listing.

In Conclusion

Similar to UCEPROTECTL2, UCEPROTECTL3 issues often stem from hosting providers. It's advisable to regularly check your deliverability score and sender reputation to predict email placement. Landing in spam folders not only impacts customers and revenue but also tarnishes your brand image. For manual outreach, consider subscribing to a tool like Salesforge to maintain high deliverability, consistent sender reputation, and better ROI.
