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 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

Cpanel: Spam Assassin Deleting Mail At Server Level Possible

Aug 31, 2007

Rather than just tagging the subject with ***SPAM***. Am I going to have to recompile spam assassin in order to get that working? I have a client of mine who wants all spam just removed before it hits his inbox. Is there a setting somewhere in cpanel that I am missing for this? Possible just to apply it to one domain name?

Plesk 11.x / Linux :: Changing Spam Assassin Default Level For Each Account?

Aug 30, 2013

Is there not a way to change the default for the spam assassin level when creating a new mail account and still have the ability to change it individually if needed?

I changed it in the spamassassin config file /etc/mail/spamassassin/ and in the server mail settings, but it still reads 7 when I create a new account and go to turn on the spam filtering. Does this value come from the db?

I can write a script making api calls? but surely there is a way to change the defaults and still have the ability to change these from the default for each account if needed?

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?

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?

Spam Bnc.txt?

Nov 17, 2008

One of our customers on a VPS downloaded this file and then ran it perl bnc.txt

I am wondering if its a spammer using the script to send spam.

It seems to be written in Portuguese, I have translated parts of it and it reminds of of the typical spam subjects you find now-a-days.

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.

Someone on our server is sending spam mails, he does not know about it.

Most spam are sent to, and

I'm getting loads of these Mail delivery failed mails:

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?

He said he updated joomla, wiki and smf forum.

Spam Filtering

Jan 5, 2009

I used to have a reseller account and have shifted everything to a dedicated server. I now find that a couple of clients are getting lots of spam when they didn't before.

It seems that the servers used by the reseller account had some level of basic spam filtering installed; my provider suggested I look for a filtering program to install on my server.

There are, of course, dozens of them, so I wondered if anyone has any experience - enough, perhaps, to make a recommendation.

I am a web host from the city of Kolkata, India.

Almost 95% of my clients are from my city - others are also known to me. I know many of them face to face - there are very little chances that any of them are SPAMMER.

Still my server IP is blacklisted - several times in last 1 year - I changed my datacenter - but the problem still persists.

Spam Being Sent From Our Server.. But How And From Where

Apr 2, 2009

We're using whm/cpanel and we're always up to date with the latest upgrades (with all our scripts).

2 weeks ago, we receive a notification from SpamCop saying that our server was sending out spam. We verified everything and found nothing. 2 days ago, same story.

We tried looking at our logs and found nothing. Does this mean that there's a security hole somewhere? How can we find out from where the spammer is sending his viagra emails from ? We do not want to be permanently banned because of a spammer.

Spam From Parallels

May 20, 2009

I guess the economy must be hitting them hard. They have resorted to unsolicited commercial email, everyone's favourite.


I hope this finds you well. I am currently attempting to reach out to companies that offer web hosting services and either use, or have used, Parallels Plesk Panel as a part of the service offerings. The goal is to re-introduce Parallels Plesk Panel and hopefully revive any previously established relationships. This includes looking into why the Parallels Plesk Panel business slowed, or stopped completely, within your organization.

We are working very hard to establish a reputable channel within the hosting marketplace. In order to do so we need to look at what is currently working and what is not currently working. The best place to begin this research is with companies that have used us, but now don't really offer our products. With that said, are you available for a phone call to discuss?

My goal is to understand:

* Do you currently offer control panels, if so, is Parallels Plesk Panel a part of your offerings?

* If you are no longer offering (pushing) Parallels Plesk Panel, is there a reason?

* Would you be receptive to some sort of "trial" program to re-introduce you to Parallels Plesk Panel and our Service Provider Partnership Program?

I look forward to your response and hopefully speaking with you soon.

Spam Cannibal / Ptr

Jun 17, 2009

I was running an IP check on

It shows blocked because of this reason:

no reverse DNS, MX host should have rDNS - RFC1912 2.1

Is it actually possible to setup some kind of generic ptr records on IPs, even if they are assigned to dedicated server clients?
