ARF (Abuse Reporting Format)
ARF is used for reporting unwanted emails by recipients, who use their “This is Spam” buttons.
These reports and the report stream they are contained within are called Feedback Loops (FBL).
A similar type of report format that is used to report more than just “This is Spam” is the X-ARF format, an extensible schema-based JSON reporting format.
The X-ARF format may be used to report many more types of network abuse, like phishing, port probes, ssh attacks, and more.Back to Glossary
