Green Eggs And Spam - Postini

May 2, 2007

we've been evaluating the Postini product for a short bit and was hoping this would be all that it's touted for.

So far, we're seeing it catch about 60% of spam but still some very obvious blatent ones are coming in.

Amazingly, we have done a forward as well to a gmail account, the gmails junk filters are pretty damm catches the *rest* that Postini does not tag.

Just curious if anyone has has used other 3rd party spam services and your feedback/review

Postini Vs Spam Assassin

Sep 5, 2007

My webhost says that I can enable "spam assassin" on my email account for free. But if I want "Postini", then I will have to pay extra. I need spam protection on my email account. But I don't want any false positives because I don't even bother scanning through my spam box.

How much better is Postini than spam assassin? I know Google is trying to buy Postini. So I figure it must be pretty good. But is it so much better than than free one?

Green Datacenters- What Do You Classify As Green

Jan 21, 2008

I've seen quite a few data centers advertising about how "green" their facilities and/or services are. However, the great majority are far from actually being green, I don't see Rackspace or AtlantaNAP using solar panels for power (please correct me if I'm wrong). And I wouldn't exactly call using refurbished hardware being "green", as the great majority of older products consume more power than new.

Let me ask the community, what do YOU classify as being "green" ?

Just wondering what's your take with Postini mail filtering services. I was expecting a huge difference but even with the filter sensativity at max threshhold *5*,, 15-30+ spam emails still seem to trickle in. The built in *junk filter* in Outlook always seems to catch the stuff that get's past by the Postini filters.

Just wondering for those using Postini, how do you feel about the accuracy of the spam filtering services.

DNS / Mail Issue With Postini Relaying

Feb 14, 2008

I've got a domain name ("") on my server (CentOS 4, WHM/cPanel) that has been set up with Postini for quite some time. All has been working & routing correctly. I recently changed to a new server with a new IP address. I transferred the account so that the DNS is setup identically on the new server. The only thing that changed is the main server IP, and the IP addresses that and resolve to. That propagation went through today and should be well set in.

Now, whenever you send an email to someone on this domain, it gets bounced back with the following:

This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification

Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:

Technical details of permanent failure:
PERM_FAILURE: SMTP Error (state 13): ( [] is currently not
550-permitted to relay through this server. Perhaps you have not logged into
550-the pop/imap server in the last 30 minutes or do not have SMTP
550 Authentication turned on in your email client.

The way I have the DNS setup on the server for the MX records is as follows:, 14400, IN MX, 100,, 14400, IN MX, 200,, 14400, IN MX, 300,, 14400, IN MX, 400,

This DNS is exactly the way it was setup before when it was working. Any ideas what could be causing this?

Being Green

Jul 4, 2008

So I see a lot of people advertising "being green". I've tried to Google around and find out, "What does it take to be green?" Unsuccessful in trying to find a list of requirement to being green. What does it mean to be green? How does one justify themselves being green?

I live in Washington state, over 90% of my data centers power is supplied by Hydro power. Does this make me green?

I recycle ALL of my equipment, Does this make me green?

I recycle as much trash as I can, boxes, cans, bottles, etc etc. Does this make me green?

Green Reseller Hosting

Sep 1, 2009

I'm thinking about diving into the world of web host reselling to host my clients web sites and help produce some residual income for myself

I have been comparing companies and their reselling plans for weeks now and am looking for some professional advice.

After searching through the forum I find a lot of designers and developers recommending hostgator

I like the looks of the plans offered by Green Geeks, you can find a rundown of their packages here: greenresellerwebhosting dot com

I like the unlimited disk space and bandwidth offered with every package and of course the green factor... however they do limit the number of domains you can host with each package.

I can't help to wonder if the unlimited diskspace and bandwidth is even necessary with the limited hosted domains and of course tech support for my clients is of vital importance

Super Green Hosting ...

May 7, 2009

I registered with www DOT supergreenhosting DOT com

The website I am hosting is for a business we just started, that is an Organic Orchard and we will ship produce to people. I chose Super Green for various reasons:

Good, cheap hosting plan.

Good reviews, from what I found online.

"Green" (although not really too green, but it would help our business image to claim we're hosted on "Green servers")
Free domain name.

So, I thought to myself, "Ok, this is who I want to go with"

I wanted to use the 36 month plan, which is $3.95 a month.

First off, I decided to test their customer service, so I began a live chat with a representative. There will always be, "1 person ahead of you, a representative will be with you shortly" bot auto response. Then, an autoresponse saying something like, "Hello, bla bla bla, how can I help you?" (Then normally a real person will say something after that)

My first question was how the billing worked. If I chose the $3.95 a month plan, will the first initial payment be just that? Just $3.95, and will I be charged $3.95 a month for every month after that for 36 months?

I was told, "Yes", that was how it worked.

So I go to register, I fill out the information, put in the card info and hit "Continue".

I was charged $142.20 or something, the entire amount! Not what I was told just moments before. I go back to live chat, and of course it is someone new now. I explain to them that the person before had given me mis information about the billing, and he just said, "You have to pay for it all up front", which was NOT at all what I was previously told.

So we're off to a bad start here.

The account activation is supposed to be "Instant". Here I am, two days later and I have yet to receive any more information about the account. Yesterday I got on their "Live Chat" again, and explained the situation. I was told that billing does not work 24/7 and the status of the account was "pending". Billing? the money is already gone! I've been "billed".

So, my question is this: Does anyone here have any experience with this host? www DOT supergreenhosting DOT com

Good, bad, what? I'm pretty bummed out about all of this. My employer is paying for all of this, and i'm doing the work for him. I feel like i'm getting the run around, and I don't know what to tell him other than try to insure him that its a legitimate company and we should receive the hosting details soon.

Sorry for such the long, rambling post. New member so I can't link you with URLS.

GREEN Hosting W/Resellers Program

Feb 26, 2008

I'm about to setup a resellers account. The best option on the block, so far, looks to be Host Gator. I would very much like to go with a green solution. I've done a lot of research and I've found very little. Here are the results of that research:


Before I go ahead and go with Host Gator, I wanted to ask if any site pointers knew of a competitive solution that was a bit greener.

finding out about any web / internet use that involves being powered by some form of green energy, i.e. host servers running on renewable energy.

There doesn't seem to be much info out there that I can find and it probably doesn't exisit but any leads would be appreciated.
Also, if anyone has any ideas on how green energy could be used in connection with the web I'd be interested to hear.

Home Based Dev Platform And Green Energy

Jun 11, 2007

I have had a bunch of various servers in my garage for years and it's proved to be a lot cheaper than having to fork out for training courses to learn different os's.

Plus since i work from home it's handy to have a setup that has the same operating systems that i work with, mainly hpux, solaris n centos

A couple of years ago i decided to try and get it running off green energy.

From the renewable energy point of view i have 6 big 12v 110ah batteries from a datacenter ups that were being decomissioned, linked to a decent 2kw inverter i managed to pick up very cheap.

Batteries are topped by a couple of solar panels and a small wind turbine (both ebay bargains).

I dont run all the servers at the same time but i can have few running happily.

I was wondering whether anyone here has done anything similar?

I originally started the idea off just to run 12v lighting in the garage but when i got the ups batteries i thought i'd take it a stage further

Domain Shows Default Green Cpanel Page

Mar 12, 2008

I don't know why but a domain is showing the green default cpanel page instead of its own homepage. The domain has been hosted on this box for a long time.

DNS is fine, ran udpateuserdomains without error. No dns changes have been made. IP it is set to pings fine. Tested via 3rd party proxy, shows green cpanel page still.

Shows proper IP in httpd.conf

Shared Host "green" / Carbon Offsetting, Cpanel, $10-$20 A Month

Oct 23, 2009

I'm currently with webfaction (which awesome) for some of my Django installs, but it's a pain for static installations (especially when clients need their own ftp accounts). So, I'm looking for a cpanel host for clients with simple PHP sites (FrogCMS and Wordpress) and static sites. I use an amazon S3 bucket for most of clients images...

I need about 25-50 SQL databases, 5-15 gigs in bandwidth, and 5-10 gigs in storage.

Many of clients are non-profits and have environmental concerns so I need a host that is "green tagged" (purchases energy from renewable resources) and uses offsets (and has a page detailing this).

I'd also like somewhere with a data-center on the east coast (I'm in Montreal)

I have $10-$20 monthly (I purchase for a year).

Plesk 11.x / Windows :: Move Spam To Spam Folder Not Available?

Oct 17, 2013

Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1
Panel version 11.0.9 Update #59, last updated at Oct 3, 2013 02:06 AM
MailEnable version 5

I see in the plesk documentation that the screen to enable SPAM filtering for an individual there is an option to "Move spam to the Spam folder". I don't see that option so I am wondering if it is only available on some versions of Plesk, or in combination with certain mail servers. How to make that option available?

"Green" Datacenters

Oct 29, 2009

Has anyone seen a (or operate their own) datacenter that is moving toward being "green" ? The renewable energy credits are great, but I'm talking more about generating their own renewable energy through large photovoltaic arrays or wind turbines, which feed back to the grid, charge a dedicated battery bank, or even charge UPS battery banks.

I've also been reading about ab/adsorption chillers that can take the hot water produced from solar thermal arrays and produce chilled water for HVAC use.

How great would that be!

Obviously some of these products are not ready to be relied on as an only source of power or cooling, and the sun and wind can be unreliable in some locations, but it is definitely something worth looking into.

So Much Spam

Aug 19, 2007

through some accounts on the server and the amount of spam in their mail queue is really frustrating. I had to set admin accounts for each site I run and the spammers have discovered them, so I am looking for a ssh command where I can just easily clean all the spam out. I tried cat /dev/null > /var/mail/"the username" but that didn't work.

Most spam are sent to, and

This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.

A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:

The e-mails come from the system/user account e-mail of the domain (, where DA is Direct Admin.

I think it sent more then 30.000 mails in 2 days.

Also received a complaint from aol.

How can I trace this? What can I do to fix it?

Is it a some crappy written php script?
