    Hey all!

    I was just curious about what other people are doing to stop outbound spam. Any thoughts?

    Thanks!

    *CSF/LFD with SMTP block
    *CSF/LFD to alert of mass mailing
    *Rate limit in Tweak Settings (cpanel)
    *Track origin in Tweak Settings (cpanel)
    *Mod Security + good rules (apache)
    *Network monitoring (Sflow/Netflow)

    And generally keeping your servers free from backdoors and vulnerable scripts which is 90% of the source.

    In addition to everything above, it's also a good idea to use a decent fraud screening service for new orders to keep the spammers off your servers to begin with.

    Oh yes, the problem is not on my end. I'm trying to help a friend of mine with a VPS. We've shown him our security methods, but it then got me wondering what else other companies might be doing, so I thought I'd ask.

    Thanks!
