Script to detect SPAM

I manage a few linux mail servers and one of the automatic scripts that has proved really useful in one which reads the last couple of hours of entries in the log file and tries to determine if an email account has sent more than 30 emails in an hour (its just an arbitrary figure we picked) if there...

Re: Strange password hack with last version

The account info has the password of test They are base64 encoded values. Suggest you disable that account fast and change the password, check undelivered messages as well to make sure your not sending out spam and if you are, delete the spam from the undelivered queue. I recently had a similar pro...

Account Size

In the Admin gui each account has a total size figure.

If I want to create a report showing how much each account has used - where would I find this? Is it held in the database, calculated from individual; email sizes in the database or is the actual size of files in the HDD added and calculated?

Re: Spam scoring on V5

do u know how it works?

I was assuming the server would fire off the emails to the external server for checking then the SA server would send them back.

Its now sounding like the SA server would analyse the email while its held on the hmail server - is that correct?

Re: Spam scoring on V5

sounds to me then that the problem of having to initially train SA is solved. Just use it on another server that has been running for a few years.

It would probalby be worthwhile to get a cheap reseller account on a linux server and pass all your hmail emails thru it.

so does that mean you could run email through SA on a completely different server?

Some ISPs here block port 25. So a quick workaround is often to use port 26 for a mail server but you don't want to only have port 26 because most email clients use port 25 by default and its too hard to explain to people how to reset their client to use port 26 unless they really need to.
