Microsoft And His Spam Filter

May 28, 2009

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.

To Spam Filter Or Not To Spam Filter

Apr 23, 2008

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?

SPAM Filter / Control

Jun 30, 2008

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 Load Does Your Spam Filter Put On Your VPS

Jul 8, 2007

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 much CPU is everyone's spam assassin/spam filter using and how many mailboxes do you host on your VPS? very curious...

Yahoo Spam Filter

Apr 9, 2007

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).

How To Filter / Track Outgoing Spam

Aug 9, 2007

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

Plesk 12.x / Windows :: SPAM Filter Literally Doing Nothing?

Sep 8, 2014

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.

I'm using the following blacklist database lists:;;;;

I have Plesk SpamAssassin 3.3.2 installed and set as the Spam handler.

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: SPAM Filter For Mailman Lists

Jul 18, 2014

I am happily running Plesk 11.5; with just one small but annoying persistent problem:

I have Clients with large mailinglistes
- SpamAssassin
- Server-wide greylisting
is running.

But apparently many of the lists mail addresses have been harvested over the years. And as there is no easy way to use SA in mailman, I am down to greylisting only for list addresses.

This results in insanely large amounts of SPAM (-> moderation requests) on the client's lists. Is this behavior improved in Plesk 12?

Or can probably SIEVE filters work here - are those available to mailman? (probably not as they work in Dovecot?)

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Email Address Blacklist - Spam Filter Settings

Apr 3, 2015

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?

Microsoft LogParser

Dec 21, 2007

Does anybody use Microsoft LogParser on their 2003 server? I am looking to use this program to find out when a user login via remote desktop and when they logoff. I have found that in Event Viewer the EventID of user login/logoff is 528 or 538. The only thing is that there are multiple logoffs in a row (with the same time for the same user) or the user logs in then out again at the same time right down to the second.

This is the query I was running then importing that data into a database to view/analyze the data:

TimeGenerated AS LogTime,
STRCAT(STRCAT(EXTRACT_TOKEN (Strings, 1, '|'), ''), EXTRACT_TOKEN(Strings, 0, '|')) AS Username
[computer name here]Security
EventID IN (528; 538)
EventCategoryName = 'Logon/Logoff'

PHP 5.25 And Microsoft FastCGI

Dec 7, 2007

I've already posted this over at the vBulletin forums and with their tech support team, but so far no one has been able to find a solution. Someone suggested I post here as well.

I am currently running vB using PHP 4.3.9 with Zend WinEnabler on a windows 2003 server. I have a seperate database server and a web server. This current configuration works fine, but I am moving to an upgraded web server and this is where the problems start.

Due to intermitant issues with Zend WinEnabler (now a discontinued product) I wanted to move to the latest version of PHP (5.2.5 NTS) and Microsoft FastCGI. The problem is that I am getting blank pages when clicking the Today's Post link from the top menu and immediately following the submission of a new post. I've gone through all of the vBulletin listed suggestions about trouble shooting blank pages and none apply.

Because I have a seperate database sever, I am accessing the same database with the new server vB configuration I am migrating to. As such I suspect the issue has to be related to web server given there are no issues on the current live site and the only changes are the PHP version and acceleration app.

If anyone has some suggestions, please let me know. I am running out of time on my server migration window before I am going to be billed for two servers.

Microsoft SPLA... VPS Licensing

Apr 30, 2009

Can anyone give me some insight on how VPS licensing works with SPLA? According to my reseller, each VPS needs its own standalone license which seem to differ with what I read somewhere about Microsoft Server 2008 allowing up to 8 virtual stances with 1 license or something like that.

Microsoft Web Platform Installer

Feb 6, 2009

I have seen here in the Windows Hosting Forum that some people ask questions about Windows hosting where they would really benefit from a basic understanding of the Microsoft web technology.

Recently on Jan 21, Microsoft made it a trivial process to install all the components needed to "kick the tires" with the "Web Platform Installer"

And I've come across a lot of hosters claiming to provide Windows hosting that could really use some quality time with this stuff!

From the Microsoft web site:

The Web Platform Installer (Web PI) is a simple tool that installs Microsoft's entire Web Platform, including IIS, Visual Web Developer 2008 Express Edition, SQL Server 2008 Express Edition and the .NET Framework. Using the Web Platform Installer’s user interface, you can choose to install either specific products or the entire Microsoft Web Platform onto your computer. The Web PI also helps keep your products up to date by always offering the latest additions to the Web Platform.

New Updates! Now supporting Windows XP and Windows Server 2003, Web PI makes it easy to install and stay up-to-date with the Microsoft Web Platform. This updated release lets you install ASP.NET MVC, Visual Studio Tools for Silverlight, and much more!

Microsoft SQL Processor License Vs CALs

May 30, 2009

One Webhost is offering MS SQL 2005 Standard Edition (Processor Licence) for US$385 per month.

Another webhost is offering MS SQL 2005 Standard Edition with 5 CALs for US$35 per month.

The first webhost says CALs are not available and that:
"A Processor License is required for running a Web server that is open to public access. Using CALs may put you in question from Microsoft's legal point of view if the inappropriate license is applied."

Only 3 people have access to the server and the website, I think, is very standard.

Our org does not wish to do anything illegal. Which one is most appropriate? The price differences are very large.

I've had a look here:
