    Hello :)

    Is this SPAM email you are trying to stop? Have you enabled SpamAssassin to help prevent this?

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    If you are receveing spam mails, you can do the following :

    - Enable/Configure spamassassin

    - Enable the RBL option from WHM , which will check each of the IPs that is attempting to send mails
    to your server and if the IP is in the RBL list , it will automatically block the mails.

    This can be found here :

    Home »Service Configuration »Exim Configuration Manager>> RBLs>>Manage Custom RBLs

    You can enable the in-build lists or add your RBL lists from above.

    - Enable the setting to Reject SPF failures , which will reject emails from domain names without valid SPF records.

    You can enable this option from :

    WHM » Service Configuration » Exim Configuration Manager>>ACL

    I find these tweaks very useful and very strict too :D

    Hello,

    Thanks all for reply , yes this is incoming spam, but its getting different mail id and different ip , and SpamAssassin enabled already also enabled Reject SPF failures, RBLs can add more entry but received ip or domain not listed in any black list .

    i deleted mail id thats all mail receiving , but now sent bounce back mail with no such as user here , can we block that or limit ?

    i used this pico /etc/antivirus.exim and added this if $header_from: contains “confirm that you want to be added to this mailing list” then seen finish endif

    But still getting mails .
