Re: Problem with SPAM
Hi Ruben,

is it possible to telnet to your SMTP Service on your Server? It could
be possible, because you can specify what Name nobody.

Make sure you have to identify if you connect to SMTP with telnet, or
allow that only your Private, or reserved IP Adresses can send a Email.

Best Regards
Andreas Fertl
