Re: Spam mail question - yuppers

hi ya noah

yes...  it's possible to get dumped into the bl..
	( havent yet ... since i haven't implmented spamfilters
	( on some servers

	- and did get blacklisted by accident... when going to
	open relay test sites to test one of my servers...fixed
	the open relay.. resubmitted and was  out of there just
	as quickly...
		- online open relay tests

	- am experimenting though .. :-)
	and the From <> is a nuisance from some spammers is a 
	good thing to reject .... ( ie ... <> and "is spammer" )
		- havent figured it out yet ..

-- and in my silly preferences.. i do NOT even want the /dev/null to
   show up ( cluttering ) anywhere in my mail logs
	- which it currently does for some users that's been nulled

-- and another dumb preference... i dont want the spam email to even
   arrive to be be put into folders ... defeats the purpose to have to go
   look at it ... usually being a 1MB base64 attachments or html'ized
   jibberish w/ lots-o-attachments ...
	- am currently rejecting most all of the html jibberish

	( i think the senders "dead.letter" box is getting bigger 
	( which is what i like to (indirectly) see ... :-)

-- i dont have procmail or any (additional mda ) filters yet..
	- just a semi-baked but functional(?) sendmail w/ antispam turned
	on w/ check_local ...

		- has RBLs turned on and header checking
		( and is full of bugz  :-)
	- lots of playing/learning....annoying too .... fun thou...
c ya
