Mail host configured but does not detect spam


Recommended Posts

I am running imail antispam and have bl.spamcop.net as dnsbl with

reverse dns enabled

verify from enabled

ehlo/helo check enabled

Usually imail inserts a header when dnsbl is matched. I had a fiveten dns and it blocked everything even my own domain so i removed fiveten and inserted spamcop. But since then i receive mails with no dns catch headers all mails are coming right into the mailbox. This is the mail i got 5 minutes ago

The ip is listed in spamcop bl.

someone please tell me what is wrong here.

there is no tracking url. I have not submitted any ips . Whatever mails i receive in inbox which i think are definitely spam like. i check the ip of those in spamcop website and they are shown to be listed. So how come they are not detected by the imail server inspite of it being configured in imail.

It appears that has been listed by the SCBL for about 44 hours, and that it had therefore already been listed by the SCBL for about 18 hours when your mailserver received that message.

Perhaps this is something for the IMail support Forum at http://www.ipswitch.com/support/IMail/index.asp ..??? Google search for this product comes up with all kinds of ads for thirf=party add-ons that use external Block List data. And on the page I reference, there's this block;

Which sure seems to suggest that the application uses its own tables of data and such for filtering. If you've got one of those thrid-party add-ons then maybe you'd need to contact them also ...????

I've not used this product nor heard of anyone else using it. I should have been asleep hours ago, so I'm not really inclined to read the manual on this application.
