Rant

Didn't Think So

Anyone want 786MB of spam? Free to a good home. Or a bad one.

1 Hmmm...that's tempting. Mighty tempting. It's so hard to pass up anything free when you've got 3 kids...

2 How does one get that much spam? It constantly amazes me that people are so flooded with spam. Today I got one (1) spam. Some days I get zero. Of course, the fact that I run my own mail server and am very good at preventing spam could explain things. No, I'm not so aggressive that I refuse legitimate email. It's simply a matter of using the right tools.

3 I'm filtering the spam rather than blocking it. When I checked to see how much was in the spam trap, well...

4 Hi Pixy, I've installed ASSP (http://assp.sf.net/) on our mail server last weekend and it is working a treat already. Conbines Bayesian filters, white listing, virus scanning, and other clever ideas (SPF in beta) in a nice open source package. Only problem I had was upgrading Perl to a modern version, which is a real b*tch on Cobalt servers! Kean

5 Thanks Kean, I'll take a look at it.

6 ASSP looks interesting. I think I should review it for my upcoming online Linux magazine. We hope to go live in 2 or 3 weeks. I won't be releasing details until we the date is etched in stone.
