Re: About DKIM

My understanding is dkim only provides additional verification that the mail is authentic and should be trusted. Unlike spf, dkim is just another bit of information that allows you to decide if the message is spam or not. spf allows you to either do nothing, accept the mail from "invalid" servers (s...

Re: About DKIM

What do you mean, " this cut other servers that send mail with my domain"?

Which servers stop receiving your mail sent from the other servers after enabling dkim? Your efa servers, or other people's servers?

duplicate subject lines causing yahoo mail rejection

I've found a bug in mailscanner I believe. One of the users was having his mail rejected from yahoo with the following error #5.0.0 smtp; 554 Message not allowed - Headers are not RFC compliant[291]> #SMTP# I had to "solve" the problem by routing the mail directly, rather than through the efa server...

Re: need some help for a bash script ...

Eeek. That's a bit ugly, reading your output and rewriting it at the same time in multiple passes.

I'm pretty sure there is a way we can use sed to do it in one pass using some of sed's more advanced options. I'll see if I can puzzle out the syntax required.

Like I said, I don't know perl, and I don't know your dataset, so my suggestion could break under different circumstances. If so, let me know and I'll find a fix.

Re: Handling Spammy IP Addresses / Address Blocks

In the meantime, another possible way might be to use fail2ban to monitor the mail log to watch for those frequent abusers and then have it configure iptables to block/allow/rate limit those IPs on the fly.

Re: need some help for a bash script ...

I suppose it is possible to use bash to handle this, but I figured perl would be easier. And since I don't know perl, I had to teach myself that. First, we have to prepare our domains. Assuming one domain per line, then I process the file using reversed string sort, so my incoming domain text file: ...

Re: need some help for a bash script ...

This is a forum for EFA, rather than for bash/sed/awk scripting. However, I'll take a stab at it. And it is a non trivial problem for a shell script to do correctly, even though the problem is easy to specify.

Re: How to notify sender that I classified as span a message ?

Are you sure you want to do this?

Almost all of the mail that I classify as spam actually is spam coming from invalid or spoofed email addresses. I don't want to send anything back that way.

Re: Transparent filtering

As I said, you could script it, but that's a lot less ideal than a transparent proxy in this case. As for ASSP, it requires a specific combination of perl packages to install, that either come from installing mcpan modules, or prebuilt packages, and you never know which ones you should use until you...

Handle mail for multiple servers for multiple domains for multiple public ips? Sure, but you'll have to configure the domain list, as it is not a transparent proxy.
