Re: Postfix! [WAS: Re: Sendmail or Qmail ? ..]

Please people,

What is the connection between the nationality of Wietse Venema and people who sent spam? This is a very strange argument and more fitted for a discussion between kids. We are adults, we are professionals, this list is to discuss technicall matters (personal opinions allowed). Please keep up the high standard of this list!

Thank you

Taking into account that .nl is one of the major sources of spam right now (through a2000.nl and plant.nl), I'm not sure if this counts for or against using postfix.

You should follow nanae more often on usenet and you will know that
`spammers' mostly moved away from a2000.nl/chello.nl thanks to Marcel
his actions. And you don't clean a network with over 300k of customers
overnight, but even SPEWS is seeing changes.

Also another thing, if I may believe statistics from people running
spamikaze[1] is the US currently nummero uno in there blacklists counted
by blocked IP-address. Even .tw, .cn and .kr are just minor issues
compared to the US.

Maybe also nice to know is that there is a foundation[2] in the
Netherlands that fights against Dutch-companies that send people bulk
e-mail to addresses that are not collected with confirmed opt-in.

So you may need to rethink your opion about the Netherland and spam,
because a lot has changed or is changing or is based on fiction.
