    This is even if you disable spamassassin? Are you enabling the spam scan in MailScanner? How about disabling that?

    how do u disable spam scan in mailscanner? :confused:


    i try disabling spamassassin but still it doesn't works

    it comes to my attention as below :

    http://www.sng.ecs.soton.ac.uk/mailscanner/ChangeLog

    I think cpanel does not have an updated version of mailscanner... probably this is the bug that is causing this problem.

    All my mails (incoming) are bounced back to the sender...

    Our UCE (spam) detectors have been triggered by a message you sent:-
    To: xxx@mydomain.com
    Subject: test
    Date: Mon Mar 15 15:20:10 2004
    This message has been destroyed. The detectors that were triggered are spam, Infinite-Monkeys.

    The server which is sending the message to our site is listed in a public blacklist of badly configured or misused mail systems.

    If you have any questions about this, or you believe you have received this message in error, please contact the site system administrators.

    YOu should also make sure that you do not have Infinite-Monkeys listed on the following line in MailScanner.conf

    Spam List = ORDB-RBL spamcop.net # MAPS-RBL+ costs money (except .ac.uk)

    Infinite-Monkeys went down a few weeks ago. It was causing errors in LogWatch on my box, so I removed it quite a while back. I thought I was the only one with the problem...:)
