Rejecting Spam Emails
I'm running a Linux mail server and would like to stop spam emails from reaching the mail clients.
My topology looks like this:
Client network <-> Mail Server <-> Internet
On the mail server I modified /etc/mail/access
and then executed the following:
makemap hash /etc/mail/access.db < /etc/mail/access
However, Clients still receive email from email@example.com.
Could someone please tell me what the problem is or how I can stop emails from firstname.lastname@example.org to reach the Clients.
Thanks in advance.
Do you have the corresponding entries in sendmail.cf? Did you restart the sendmail process?
I do have the corresponding process in sendmail.cf as follows:
# Access list database (for spam stomping)
Kaccess hash -T<TMPF> -o /etc/mail/access.db
I have also restarted sendmail.
you can try setting up spamassassin.
