RE: [vox-tech] smtp question - blocked ip

ummm...email at work is MS Exchange and that works well enough protected by
an SMTP relay on the DMZ.

Existing Enterprise smtp relay entry point is also a Win32 solution that is a
cheap (cheap as in piece of crap) inflexible one at that.  A Linux solution
using Postfix or Sendmail has been proposed but is unlikely to be approved.
It is still under review at this point.  My existing SMTP relay is crap.

So install a bounce handler that rejects originating IP's into your
system.  Set it to have a bounce/delivered ratio low enough that they only
get 100 or so emails through per ip they abuse.

I've recently set something similar to this up and it's all but stopped
stupid spammers cold.
