    Hi all,

    Hope someone can help, I have implemented security on my mailserver in the form of ACL's. The following lists are used:

    dnslists =

    and it is working great, it is blocking almost 99.9% spam, it is blocking the odd wanted mails but I can live with that. Once thing that is still happening is someone is sending out mail using our domain name and adding anything before the @ sign as I am getting rejected mail from other sites, here is one below:

    2005-03-14 15:31:39 1DArXf-0004fr-AV []:51979 I=[]:25 F=<> rejected afte$

    Virus Viper email filter**

    How can I stop this. It is the only domain it is happening to and I think it is because this domain used to be hosted on a reseller account on the very insecure Interservers.

    Any help would be great.
