    hotmail.com
    aol.com
    gmail.com
    yahoo.com
    excite.com
    mail.ru
    rr.com
    rr.net

    Are you saying you are going to block all mail with these domain names? :confused:

    I'm curious what type of filtering you intend to impose? Basically any popular domain or ISP provider could be added to your list. I don't see the point in this but perhaps an explanation of your intentions might get participants if its practical.

    Just to reject mails that are forged.

    Example real mail from verizon.net comes from mx.verizon.net.
    A forged verizon.net mail will come from other host, so I want to implement this checkings. I already have a thread about this, the only thing is to know more domains that are used often for forgery to control them.

    Thanks

    Just keep a log of spam, you'll get a good idea soon enough!

    But the idea of keeping stats on what valid mail servers are valid has some merit, just so long as you do it right. The hardest thing will be keeping up to date with changes, so I'd only make this part of an anti-spam strategy. Are you aware of SPF? Other things like ASSP. nolisting, Configserver.com's Mailscanner installation are all useful stuff.
