Just looking for help understanding this. When I view Mail Statistics Summary I see the following:

Top 50 rejected ips by message count
516 local
4 [113.188.67.239]
4 [95.165.236.130]
3 [147.0.222.234]
3 [185.159.220.230]
etc...

The largest number by far has the IP 'local'. Does this mean that mail delivered locally is being rejected? Is "marked **SPAM** by spamassassin" considered a rejection?

Thanks

Hello,

The “local” host or domain represents mail sent from your server (e.g. PHP scripts, notifications). Email messages marked as SPAM should not count towards this number. There's a document here that explains the meaning of each statistic:

Let us know if you have any additional questions.

Thanks!
