Spam fighting, the Mac way

| No TrackBacks

I've blogged previously setting up Postfix on my server, and wanted to share this link about Spamhaus, and how they're making use of Macs, including a G4 cube, to help ISPs around the world, as well as small time mail servers like mine, keep up the war against unwanted junk mail.

My mail logs show that I'm regularly hit from systems looking for an open mail relay for sending junk mail, Postfix by default blocks these. But I'm getting an increasing number of messages that are being rejected thanks to Spamhaus. So far, not one junk mail has made it to my inbox from a spammer.
