    Hi Members,

    I am receiving too much spam emails now a days. I setup few rulesets according to messages i am receiving but messages are coming again and again with a little bit change either in subject or in body of the message.
    Spam assassin is working on every domain but not catching all spam messages.

    Subject of spam mails are like :

    Subject: ThePregnantMag: daily content - edition 1128 vol 1
    Subject: Fw: Side Blink Closers
    The body of this message is:
    From: "ThePregnantMag" <xprdaily@optin-central.com>
    Subject: ThePregnantMag: daily content - edition 1128 vol 1
    PregnantXXXMagoptin-central.com is an authorized agent of PregnantXXXMag.

    I were receiving emails till yesterday like this:

    Subject: Michale Wrote:
    SO i added this rule set :

    Code:

    header WROTESPAM Subject =~ /^wrote\:/i
    score WROTESPAM 9.000

    Also i added many filters as given in cpanel forums regarding spamemail.

    This decreases receiving spam mail ratio to 50% but still i am getting emails containing images and simple text messages as given above.


    If someone could tell me the code to block image containing spam emails as well as code to block email message given above this will be great favor.


    Thanking you,


    Samia

    Look in to spamassasin that is an option in Cpanel

    You will need to do some extra config and auto updates to get it to work best

    He is already using spamassassin and knows how to tweak it! FYI my users are also telling me that the assassin in spamassassin is maybe growing old and not able to detect baddies that efficiently! Actually the baddies are getting a lot better and spamassassin needs to be tweaked to block spam but the baddies are also getting more intelligent and changing the email contents slightly as he has put it so nicely.

    Apart from these, I also am looking for the solution to this. Anybody been successful so far and interested in sharing the glory with us?

    Read up on RBL's in exim. They work very well.
    Sample exim config below:

    Code:
    #**#
    #**# RBL List Begin
    #**#
    #
    # Always accept mail to postmaster & abuse for any local domain
    #
    accept domains = +local_domains
    local_parts = postmaster:abuse
    #
    # Check sending hosts against DNS black lists.
    # Reject message if address listed in blacklist.
    deny message = Message rejected because $sender_fullhost \
    is blacklisted at $dnslist_domain see $dnslist_text
    #dnslists = dnsbl.njabl.org : \
    #bl.spamcop.net : \
    #blackholes.easynet.nl : \
    #dynablock.easynet.nl : \
    #proxies.blackholes.easynet.nl : \
    #sbl.spamhaus.org : \
    #list.dsbl.org : \
    #cbl.abuseat.org : \
    #relays.ordb.org
    dnslists = bl.spamcop.net : \
    sbl-xbl.spamhaus.org : \
    cbl.abuseat.org : \
    porn.rhs.mailpolice.com
    # RBL Bypass Local Domain List
    !domains = +rbl_bypass
    # RBL Whitelist incoming hosts
    !hosts = +rbl_whitelist
    #**#
    #**# RBL List End
    #**#
