New feature: use your own spam domain with spambox !

September 21st, 2009 by webmaster

Hello everyone,

Last week, Seth sent me an email to tell me about a new hype regarding DEA (Disposable Email Address) services.  There’s some anti-DEA gangs around here trying to kill our efforts to reduce spam.

How do they procede ?  Today, they just simply dress up and distribute lists of DEA domains ready-to-be-banned which results to spambox.us domain being banned from lots of websites.

So to counterfeit this, I worked on a new feature letting you, spambox user, participate to the the first step our naughty plan.

You can now register your own domain or subdomain on the website so that it can be used by others.  You can also make it private and it won’t appear on the temporary e-mail generation process.

In order to be able to do that, you just need to create a DNS MX entry directing mails to mx1.spambox.us, in your domain or subdomain.

For example:

spam.mydomain.com.  IN  MX 10 mx1.spambox.us.

Then simply register your domain in the ‘register’ form on the main page.

Thank you for using spambox ! ;-)

Spambox is back – new features are coming … stay tuned !

September 17th, 2009 by webmaster

To everyone:

Thanks a *lot* for your support — I was away, could not handle the work load plus spambox, but now I’m back after a year and a half

Sorry for those who still want to buy spambox, it’s not for sale anymore and I don’t have plans to sell it, I managed to resolve my personal issues.  So now I’ll be working on spambox like I was doing in the past.

Thanks again – New features are coming so stay tuned ! ;-)

Frederic

Spambox.us might be for sale.. please read

June 5th, 2008 by webmaster

INFO: Spambox is not for sale anymore — I finally did not accept to sell it.  New plans, new features are coming !

Hi Everyone,

I’ve tried to avoid that for a while but I came to the point that I have to sale most of my belongings….

Well there you go, the domain and the service itself might be for sale, along with the servers, hosting for at least a year, and maintenance. I never had to make anything to push traffic to it, today it gathers more than 120,000 pageviews and +50k unique visitors per month and it regularly hits the top 100k websites from alexa web ranking.

Alexa ranking

So to resume it all, I need to find at least $40k (25kE) by the end June.

Please do not hesitate to send me any serious offers or ideas that could help me to reach this goal. You can contact me by mail at the address on the bottom of the this page: http://www.spambox.us/about

Thanks a lot,

Frederic
