OpenDNS’s typo correction feature helps smooth one of the Internet’s daily annoyances. But for URIBLs (a kind of blacklist used by mail servers), typo correction has always been a deal breaker.

No longer!

Back in August 2006, we enhanced our nameserver software to stop doing typo correction for DNSBLs. Now, URIBLs can get the same special treatment. In fact, the popular URIBLs hosted at these three domains already do:


If you previously disabled typo correction so you could use one of these URIBLs, you can now re-enable it.

And if you run a URIBL and would like us to add your domain to our URIBL list, please provide us with details either in the comments here or via our contact form. We’ll keep the latest list in our knowledge base.

By the way, our thanks go to the folks at SURBL and URIBL.COM for their assistance with this project.
