Spamhaus lists Google

I’m sitting at my desk sipping first coffee of the day when a colleague floats a message over the transom of an e-mail related listserv with the subject line “Spamhaus now listing Google Outbounds”. Colleague owes me a new keyboard.

It does appear that Spamhaus is listing fifteen different Google hosts. However, Gmail users shouldn’t be reaching for their torches and pitchforks just yet. It does not appear that any machines that actually handle mail for Gmail are listed.

Instead, Spamhaus is listing a basketful Google Docs machines for their long history of hosting images and redirectors for the associated Canadian Pharmacy ROKSO listing.

Will Google notice? That really depends on whether any Google customers notice. Stay tuned.
