your friends don't get emails from facebook unless you explicity type in their address and/or upload your address book for facebook to invite them. i've not done either of these things so facebook hasn't "spammed" my friends - surely it's not spamming them if you entered the addresses to invite them...

Rollernet.us as secondary mx

I stumbled across http://rollernet.us/ as a free secondary mx service today.

Just wondering if anyone's using / used it and if so, is it reliable?

I would suggest including this for stand alone mysql servers too. I've had a couple of corrupted tables over the time i've used hMailServer - always after a crash or unexpected restart (not hMails fault at all)

However a lot of web sites with forms that you fill in and then click a button to e-mail only run a dumb script and do not retry so the e-mail is lost. How much of an issue has this been?

I'm using apache and have noticed the constraint in my application log (i'm using xp pro). From my understanding, it's the number of tcp/ip connections regardless of what port they come in on?

isn't a reason to use 2k3 over xp the fact that XP Pro SP2 now limits inbound and outbound connection attempts to no more than 10 at one time (and XP Home limits to 5) ?

the above is from memory so forgive me if i've got it wrong!

there is no "cleanup" option. you need to set the following: uncheck "use subject as filename" set the max files option (which you've already done) remove the 85000 you've already got (however, i'd be slightly cautious with this as my ASSP recently seem to forget all the spam training it'd had.. and...

Send all mail from a certain user through SMTP relayer?

Is it possible through scripting to send all mail from a particular user through the SMTP relay? The reason I want to do this is: So far I have discovered two domains that reject mail from my server (not sure why - they don't give me detailed info, just that it was rejected. I assume this is due to ...

Sounds like you unticked "Allow empty sender address" on the SMTP security tab, and that the remote server "verifies" that you're not a spammer by trying to send a mail to your server without specifying a sender address
