The Email Reputation Services documentation is written for IT managers and email administrators in medium and large enterprises. The documentation assumes that the reader has in-depth knowledge of email messaging networks, including details related to the following:

  • SMTP protocol

  • Message transfer agents (MTAs)


You have to know how to configure your MTA to make a DNS Known Spam Source List query before you change the settings for Email Reputation Services.

The documentation does not assume the reader has any knowledge of antivirus or anti-spam technology.
