Receiver blacklist?

Post by neogeoma » Thu, 09 Oct 2003 18:04:01


Is it possible to have mails to certain users refused when using domain
mailboxes? I've been using dozens of email addresses for a long time,
but a small number have become spam magnets. I'd prefer they simply
weren't accepted, but I can't find any method to refuse mail or
connections based on the receiver, only the sender.

Also, regarding my earlier post about copying configs to a new server
and meeting failure, I've simply reinstalled and started over. I'm not
sure why, but mercury simply refused to save any changes when I tried to
edit old paths when the whole directory was copied over.

Lawrence.

I had the same problem there`s this sven virus mail bomb thing that latches
onto real email address posted on usenet and my mail email address became a
spam magnet - in the process of trying to reduce to amount of spams getting
thru I now have no server check the various blacklists but this still didn`t
prevent them getting thru - after trying to set a max ESTMP size of 9500 kb
(as these spams were over that) I found that I couldn`t send mail via
Outlook Express without it making a size declaration.

The best way to refuse them altogether was to delete the mailbox so that
email address effectively no longer exists - so what happens now is I get
they are trying to delivery but mercury refuses them because no mailbox
exists to deliver - I`m just gonna be a lot more carefull with my email
address on usenet now. I accidently posted it a couple of times in the past
and used to get 5 - 10 spams a day which was tolerable but this latest wave
that started a month ago is 100 times worse. So now I will make sure I never
post it.

I had the same problem there`s this sven virus mail bomb thing that latches
onto real email address posted on usenet and my main email address became a

didn`t
prevent them getting thru - after trying to set a max ESTMP size of 9500 kb

trying to delivery but mercury refuses them because no mailbox exists to
deliver - I`m just gonna have to be a lot more carefull with my email
address on usenet now. I accidently posted it a couple of times in the past
(via different computers) and used to get 5 - 10 spams a day which was
