BlackList and Exim MTA

Recommended Posts

Good Evening, Colleagues! (Evening for /me ;)

At the previous week my server gone to blacklist. I see that first cause is misdirected bounces.

Can you show me some correct (for Spamcop) examples of configuration exim MTA?

Thank you.

Yes, indeed, per http://www.spamcop.net/w3m?action=checkblo...p=, your mailserver globalmail.svr.net.ua [] is indeed listed, but it is not just listed for sending misdirected bounces, it is also listed for sending mail to SpamCop spam traps. "In the past 11.3 days, it has been listed 4 times for a total of 3.2 days". I hope you have reviewed HOWTO - Preventing Relaying and the links thereon.

Looks like you are bouncing email back to the "From" address which is not good as almost all spam and virus have forged/invalid "From" addresses causing innocent victims to receve a message like the following:

---------------- Example ------------------------

From dbmail[at]globalmail.svr.net.ua Mon May 30 15:52:45 2005

Delivery-date: Mon, 30 May 2005 15:52:45 -0400

This is the DBMAIL-SMTP program.

I'm sorry to inform you that your message, addressed to mirbcle[at]euro.net.ua,
