Amavis "makes SPAM" of my Mails


Hi there,

when I send mails to a friend, the Mailserver of his ISP detects my mails as SPAM.

I found out, that this is due to sending my mails through a local SuSE-Linux-Mailserver, that is running AmavisD. So when I send my mails using webmail the mails is not detected as SPAM, but when I send it through my mailserver, it is.

So I think that the header lines added from my local Mailserver are responsible for beeing detected as SPAM, maybe they are incorrect or indicate in any way beeing SPAM.

Here are the lines added from the local Mailserver to every mail I send out:

Received: from localhost (localhost [127.0.0.1])
by linux.mydomain.de (Postfix) with ESMTP id EB9885C745
for <wim@netcologne.de>; Tue, 29 Nov 2005 14:41:47 +0100 (CET)
Received: from linux.mydomain.de ([127.0.0.1])
by localhost (linux.mydomain.de [127.0.0.1]) (amavisd-new, port 10024)
with ESMTP id 06151-06 for <wim@netcologne.de>;
Tue, 29 Nov 2005 14:41:43 +0100 (CET)

"mydomain.de" is my really registered domain, "liqui.mydomain.de" is my only local resolvable mailserver.

The lines added from the receiving mailserver (NetCologne.de) that detects my mails as SPAM are:

X-WW-Spam-Likelihood: Bayesian=50, BodyRules=50, DBL=50, HeaderRules=50, Mailshell=62, RBL=70, total=79
X-NetCologne-Spam: M

Is there something wrong with my mail headers? Do I have to configure Postfix or AmavisD in a different way?

What can I do to avoid that my mails are detected as SPAM?

Thank you for any help.

peter

Hello,

some providers check the ip of the sending mailserver against the official (DNS Entries) ips.
If these ips don't match, then the mail is sometimes rejected or marked as spam.
So, if your IP isn't the official mail-server address, then you have difficulties. Try to configure your mailserver, to send via the official ip.

HTH
