another challenge for you, I'm trying (googling) to find out how I can stop error messages to be sent if the user not found in local part?
I'm using exim 3.x with spamassassin, and it bugs me to se my logs getting filled with spam comming in, getting scanned and then the user is not found in my domain so it sends a bounce back message... i want this to stop, I don't want to send error messages back if the user is not found.
Thanks but I don't want to remove spamassassin, it's been working great... by default though, spamassassin scans the emails that come in, once scanned, then it looks for what user to send it to. If the user is not found is sends a bounce back message to the sender. This is what I want to stop, if someone sends an email to my company and does not have a proper address and is spam, I want it to go nowere...
Your ISP does not have spam control? Mine does, and it works reasonably well. Instead of getting 30-40 a day before I enabled it two years ago, I only get no more than two or three at the most per day now, and those are cleverly designed to go through the filters. I'm with Telus. There's allot of chocked people out here not with Telus that infect there Windows box with all kinds of pop-up blockers and spam stuff, which put's money in my pocket when they can't stand waiting 10 minutes for it to boot so they can use it, I end up fixing em'.
I'm sure my ISP does have there own SPAM conrol software, but my company has it's own mail server and it's own spamassassin software... this is why i'm trying to find out how to change my configs so that only people that are not flagged as spam and do not send to a proper user, they only get a bounce back message... but when it is spam, put it in a black hole so that the spammer does not get a bounce back message.
