Using a GeoIP database to log and analyze suspicious emails and IP addresses. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear Sir or Madam:

    After one too many Phishing expeditions. I was wondering: Does Microsoft have a free to download GeoIP database? 

    I want to use the GeoIP database as the backend for filtering software.  

    Example: I receive a bad email.


    After I parse the email header for the email’s IP address I can use the GeoIP database to find the email’s origins. I can then log this information for later data analytics.


    Thank you,
