How to deal with 98% spam? (corporate case)
In article ,
I gather sendmail can have plug-ins so this sort of thing could be
written. I know someone who could do it but he thinks what I am
proposing is an overkill.
Sendmail is fine, and no need to write anything - connected
with Mimedefang and Spamassasian and an anti-virus program it's
great. Spamassasian (& Mimedefang) have lots of configurability to do
just about everything you want. It's a bit of a fiddle to get going,
but the HowTos are very well written and easy to follow.
In these spam & virus laden days nothing is overkill...
Presently we have 64k ISDN dial-up access but will be getting BB soon,
so I am trying to get something sorted.
I probably would advise you to not run your web site from inside the
broadband, but look for an external web host - unless you get something
other than a standard package your outgoing bandwidth will likely only
be 256Kbps which is adequate for a very low volume site, if you place
large images on it, someone with a 512Kbps line will saturate all your
outgoing bandwidth when they are sucking stuff off it. (and unless you
are clever with the various bandwidth management and QoS witchcraft
it'll then kill incoming traffic at the same time)
I would appreciate any suggestions as to how to do this perhaps more
Drop me an email for more details - I run Mimedefang+SA+Sendmail on
several Linux setups, but they run just as well under FreeBSD too.
