I'm wondering if theres anything I can install on the server that will either filter or track outgoing spam. I don't want to limit the number of emails sent per hour or anything, I just want to be able to maybe search through some flagged emails or something. Or if they send the exact same email more than x times it can disable their account... I'm not sure
As a web host or ISP what do you think is best to do? do spam/virus filtering, or don't touch mail and let the user do what they want with it? (no chance of false positives, or lost mail, this way)
I work for an ISP and we have a barracuda and we get tons of calls from customers regarding lost mail and such as when you're filtering such a large varitey of mail its very hard to have a "perfect" filter. Mail that a car dealership gets and what a hospital get is totally different, for example.
Also in terms of web hosting the filtering will put a reasonable load on the server during peak spamming hours.
So just curious, as a ISP/webhost customer do you think your host should do filter or do you rather manage that yourself?
We have identified that messages from your IP are being filtered based on the recommendations of the Symantec Brightmail filter as well as our internal Smart Screen Filters. The filter was initiated by Hotmail at (5/20/2009 12:00:00 AM) PST due to a large volume of emails that were sent prior to this time.
We will be happy to work directly with Symantec on your behalf to investigate and possibly resolve this problem. In order to move forward, we will need examples of the messages that were caught by the Brightmail filters.
I am running a small hosting operation and would like to know more about SPAM filtering and controlling. SpamAssasin is installed on my server but it does not do much. I was looking into different solution with a anti-spam device and would like to know which one is recommended the most: sonicwall, barracuda or symantec? (total email addresses is less than at thousand)
How much CPU & RAM load does your spam filter put on your VPS? It seems logical that the more mailboxes hosted, the more VPS resources the spam filter will consume - especially if any of the email addresses are targeted by spammers (or the user is careless and gives out their email address everywhere - as many do).
It's become so much with some of our subscribers that we have had to offer a hardware spam filter, to keep the load off the VPS. It's been great in that the VPS's protected by it have seen a dramatic performance increase....but are these subscribers unique in some way?
And so here is my question...how much CPU is everyone's spam assassin/spam filter using and how many mailboxes do you host on your VPS? very curious...
Anyone else have problems with Yahoo Spam filters being overzealous? I recently setup a new domain and a few email accounts. After sending a few test messages to my Yahoo email, each one of them was flagged as spam. I changed the text to a more regular email, with no controversial words and still the same result. I notice that Yahoo regularly traps some newsletters I subscribe to in my spam filter, but rarely, if ever legitimate emails. I checked with my web host who informed me they are not on any spam blacklists and that I would have to contact Yahoo. Yahoo's help is quite a maze (designed to make you lose interest and move on), so before I continue hunting for how to contact Y!, I thought I would come here to see if this is a common problem (with a common fix).
I just found out all my mails sent to Gmail are marked as spam. However, if I check my IP address in independant grass-root spam databases, my IP address isn't blacklisted. I checked 7 of them. Do you know how to solve this problem
A few months before I updated to Plesk 12 I noticed a huge jump in uncaught spam - I hoped the update to Plesk 12 might solve this but no luck.
I have now changed the spam sensitivity on my account 1, the idea being I would then whitelist the domains I want to get through but literally nothing is getting marked as spam. Users on other domains on the same server are reporting the same.
switched to ipower.com and not getting any help - really stuck as my customer wanted better spam filtering so I went to them on a recommendation and I do not know how to turn on and what is the best setting for spam filtering with their panel. Also using HORDE where I can set a filter using rules but it only works if I log on and hit apply filter so my customer still gets it in his in box -
I'd like to seek help on how to read eximlog file. I saw the below inside eximlog. I'm wondering now because firstname.lastname@example.org does not exist on this user emailaddress when I browse his cpanel. Now who is sending it? the only correct info is the pixelxl which is the user.
Almost all mail adresses on my server is getting a spam mail from same mail marketing company everyday and i want to block them... Normally i just add the mail address to blacklist from "Spam Filter Settings" but this company is opening new addresses everyday and it is impossible to add all of them to blacklist so i need adding it as a regex to the blacklist...
The company i am talking about is opening mail addresses every day like below...
As you can see all mail addresses begin with "nrt"+"6 digits of day"+"free mail provider", so right now i am using the regex below and it is already added to the blacklist but they are still able to send me... What can i do now?
I am trying to make sure my server configuration is optimally set to prevent my outgoing activation emails being set as spam.
so far I have set up an SPF record - Using Plesk for mydomain.com set up a DNS record of type TXT and value v=spf1 mx -all.
How do I check if this has been set up correctly?
I am using CentOS with Apache and Plesk 8.3 and I am sending mail using PHP's mail() function. The majority of the emails that aren't being received are going to hotmail accounts but I haven't yet sent a large enough amount of emails to view any concrete pattern. Curiously they don't appear to be going to the user's spam folder they are just being deleted outright.
Also, I'm not sure if it's related but one of my users mistyped their email address as @gogglemail.com and I now have a message in the qmail mail queue which is dated 1970. Is this something I am failing to do at a PHP level (i.e. not setting a date attribute)?
A user in my server trying to send email, but email is flagged as "Absolute Spam" by Spamassassin. It says IP is listed in SBL/XBL.
There is an IP address in "Received-From" part of the headers. That IP is actually listed in several spam databases, but not my server's IP (Below, red and bold). Email is sent from my server, but how come "From" IP is different from mine?
Headers of the email are below:
