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
- 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...
