That is not a normal way to report spam. In fact, it's utterly bizarre. The generally accepted way to report spam is through the abuse@ email contact of the owner of the IP address which sent the email to you. In the case of email you sent through a firm in Berlin, such email would be directed either to them, or to their Internet service provider or ...

Definitely not a common way to respond. I'd likely just ignore it, if it weren't easy to validate.

If you have a machine that is compromised, the first step is to disconnect it from network. Then you can replace with a new secured one. I know this is not answer you expect, but it could be very complicate to cleanup a compromised machine. The way you ask this question shows your lack of experience in dealing with security issues and the best answer is to ...

would be faster enable the X-PHP-Originating-Script header by allowing it in php.ini file by option mail.add_x_header = On. Then just check new email in mailq.

It looks like you are running an open relay. Configure your server to queue only and clear the spam out of your spool. mailq and exim4 -Mad are commands that may help. You may want to firewall or/or shutdown your server while you resolve the issues. Legitimate incoming mail should not bounce until you have been down a couple of days. Review your ...

Postfix does not have that feature by default, you will have to use external program policyd to enforce that rule. I believe you will find the knowledge you seek in this link: http://ngocquyetlinux.blogspot.com/2013/05/limit-mail-with-policyd.html

You can configure Postfix to divert all messages to the hold queue, and an external script (which you'll need to write) can monitor this queue and release messages at the desired rate.

Just an alternative command to do the same proposed by gview: find /var/spool/postfix/deferred/ -exec grep -l 'Subject: this was the subject line' {} \; | xargs -r -n1 basename | xargs -r -n1 postsuper -d find + grep -l: find the deferred emails on file system with the given subject xargs + basename: retrieve the message ID from the path of the mail file ...

I got it sorted. I didn't notice another restrictrive rule was set before my relay rule. I changed the rule order and now i can enter again the box. Thankx

This is certainly possible. Just to give you a hint: You may use $run and $runrc in the ACL at rcpt stage. See the section 5. after "${run..." under http://www.exim.org/exim-html-current/doc/html/spec_html/ch-string_expansions.html. You do have to write a script though, which invokes "list_members mailinglist" or you may find the "withlist" command inspiring....

Assuming that you have set up SPF, DKIM, rDNS and that you are not blacklisted, your only options is Microsoft Smart Network Data Services. No kidding. That is official MS's program for registering responsible person (administrator) for IP address on which mail server runs. That way you can observe and review status of IP address of your mail server. MS ...

Doing an ARIN lookup of your IP, it looks like it's coming from a provider that offers cloud hosting services. It seems pretty standard for Cloud hosting providers to get blacklisted simply because of how often IP addresses can change hands and how easy it is for instances to send Spam. Mail services end up black listing the entire hosting provider's block....

The headers you posted don't really look like Hotmail Headers. Can you log into hotmail online not through thunderbird and grab the headers from the actual email. They normally contain all the codes to tell you why it's going to spam. I did check your IP at Symantec and it was clean (sometimes that's the culprit for Hotmail issues). You also might have a ...

The currently relevant RFC, RFC 5322, states how an email should be formatted. It does not specify how any email program (whether server or client) should handle emails which are not properly formatted. Thus, it is up to whoever writes the software to make that decision. In other words, there is no general answer to your question. Some programs may give an ...

By default, permit_mynetworks is set under smtpd_recipient_restrictions . mynetworks is set to 127.0.0.0/8 and its IPv6 equivalent. This allows unauthenticated mail from localhost. There is likely a rogue process that's just sending mail to localhost. If you remove that option, at least the mails may stop. But you'll still need to find the rogue process. You ...

99% of the time, email is delivered via the MX record mechanism. The MX record designates which server is authoritatively responsible for accepting email for a given domain. But that doesn't mean that this server is also the server where the recipients mailbox is. The MX record only designates which server to deliver the email to, it doesn't designate which ...

This statement is not accurate: " Email delivery is done by Sender's Mail Server sending E-Mail directly to Receiptent's Domain Mail-Server" For example, at my firm, when I send an email from my mail client, I might not have an externally-facing SMTP server at my site. Mail might be routed within my company's Exchange infrastructure. Then, it might ...
