DNS trick opens mailserver?

Post by boogieman » 2009-08-06 13:30

hi all,
just curious - http://www.heise.de/newsticker/Namens-T ... ung/143123

its in German but i hope some german speaking people are online :)

does this affect the hmailserver? i took a quick look at the SMTP settings and the IP Ranges but i fear this is deeper in the Software itself.

thanks!

I read it but don't believe it applies to hMailServer, assuming I understand it properly. hMailServer doesn't trust senders just because they claim to come from localhost (even though their IP address doesn't do that..)
