    Spam Spam Spam

    Nowadays nearly everyday 2 days I receive a flood of spams sending to my domains in all permutations a to z 1 to 9 [email protected] resulting in a large number of bounces and queues. These are not from open relays. Every hard to block , it is from everywhere. How to deal with these? Also any good range of class Cs I should block besides those in ordb and spamhaus?

    I can give you a few tips on locking up your Exim server to such abuse.

    I'll contact you shortly to see which methods you have and have not used.

    If you are using qmail along with daemontools, probably you might want to setup internal RBL?

    Not sure about the server you use. But can you disable the catchall account ? That should help.

    there is a patch for qmail that will not accept any emails if there is no coresponding mailbox for it. meaning it wont even touch your queue. unfortunately, you might need to recompile qmail. check http://qmailrocks.org its a great community. you have spamassassin running right?
