Welcome to Passwall!

A Certificate Authority is available for validaing SSL Certs to access special SSL encrypted content. (Nothing officially published as of yet.) This makes content from https://ssl.passwall.com/ Available with encryption without having to pay for it.

  • For netscape, you dont need to download this. Netscape should notice the certificate and ask you to install it when you visit https://ssl.passwall.com/.
  • For MSIE on Windows, you need to download the above certificate to your desktop, and then double click on the downloaded file in order to have MSIE use it for encryption.
  • For MSIE For the Mac, we do not yet have a solution. (Sorry)

Spam, Unsolicited commercial e-mail, opt-in/opt-out lists, Bulk Mail, e-mail with unwanted content, etc:

  • First, and foremost, the passwall domains do not spam. We do not host lists. We do not host opt-in/opt-out mass-mailing. We do not advertise our name or products through other sites, or advertise for any other business.
  • We use SPF for our domains. This means, our DNS will report what IP addresses are valid MX or relay for our domains. Passwall.com users aggressively seek to eliminate spam and provide multiple lists to our passwall registered users to help them with avoiding spam.
  • We absolutely hate receiving mail that we do not want. Our postmaster has been collecting names of domains that appear to be responsible for sending unwanted mail to users in our domain as well as domains referenced in unwanted messages as parts of URL or URI. Phone numbers found in messages are also used to generate custom rules for message processing.

    Our primary purpose for publishing these documents is to provide registered passwall users with our custom rules for their own purposes.

    Our secondary purpose for publishing these documents is to make it possible for any user of the Internet to see what domains provide content found undesireable by registered passwall users.

    The content below is provided to non-registered passwall users for entertainment and academic purposes. How non-registered passwall users choose to interprit these documents is not the responsibility of any member of passwall.com.

    Each file is updated every 24 hours. Do not download more than once every 24 hours.

    1. SpamAssassin Blacklist / Spam Assassin Blacklist / Spam Blacklist is a copy of the configuration file that is in use at passwall.com for blacklisting domains known to send content to passwall users not desired by passwall users. The domains on this blacklist were generated from e-mail found to contain unwanted content and from other sources on the Internet. The domains may have been the "sender" or may have been referenced by the e-mail through a URL or URI.
      Use of this blacklist is the least CPU intensive SpamAssassin configuration option on a per-rule basis of the three that are listed here.
    2. Custom SpamAssassin Rules for URL or URI / Custom Spam Assassin Rules for URL or URI / Custom Spam Rules for URL or URI are created using the domains in the blacklist. Any e-mail that contain a URL or URL which contains a domain listed in the above blacklist, these custom rules exist to increase the score of the message to increase the chances the message will be marked as spam by spamassassin.
      Use of this URI rules is more CPU intensive for SpamAssassin as a configuration option than the blacklist rules, but less CPU intensive than the phone numbers list on a per-rule basis.
    3. Custom SpamAssassin Rules for Phone Numbers / Custom Spam Assassin Rules for Phone Numbers / Custom Spam Rules for Phone Numbers are provided to further increase the score of messages being scanned by spamassassin. Any e-mail containing any of these phone numbers will have their scores increased to increase the chances the message will be marked as spam by spamassassin.
      Of the three configurations for SpamAssassin for registered passwall users, the phone rules are the most CPU intensive per-rule of the three rules offered to registered passwall users.
    4. We are migrating away from URL/URI based searching as well as blacklist enforcement of rules within spamassassin due to inefficiencies in how spamassassin uses memory is to store the patterns. Instead, we are using the newer spamassassin URI checking against blacklists in DNS blacklists and have switched to SMTP-based blocking of senders.
      If you use qmail with the qmail badmailfrom wildcard patch then you can use this badmailfrom file on your systems. (Use of this require a restart of your qmail server for each update.)

    For registered passwall users: To install any or all of these configuration files for spamassassin, locate the system's spamassassin configuration directory. By default, it will likely be in /etc/mail/spamassassin/ or /usr/local/etc/mail/spamassassin/, but your system config file may be different. You can save many files to this location, and spamassasisn may use each one. It is good form to terminate the files with ".cf". A good name might be "passwallblacklist.cf". Individual users may add these to their own local spamassassin blacklists.
    Do not download these file more than once every 24 hours per client IP address. Excessive downloads per 24 hours may result in temporary bans of offending IP addresses. (There is no rational reason for downloading a list that changes once every 24 hours more often than every 24 hours.)
    This list updates at around 1:00am (PDT) (UTC-8)
