    Some spammer has found an email address for a mailman list(s) that I have and are using a spoofed return address(es) and keep sending the list a message with the subject containing "help". Naturally the list is sending them back help. The problem is, that particular return address (or addresses) is part of the QIL list at MAPS and I keep getting listed there. They take me off right away, as they say their software should not be dealing with challenge verifies or autoresponder -but they do. With that block on it fills up my mail queue real fast!

    What I want to do is redirect emails to a different transport based on the text in the subject or return address, or ???, and use that transport to send the email on a different IP address until MAPS gets all figured out.

    Chirpy or someone more knowledgeable with exim - help, please.

    I am looking for something similar to this, maybe someone will understand better with an example and be able to help:

    mailman_virtual_router:
    driver = accept
    require_files = /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/lists/${lc::$local_part}_${lc::$domain}/config.pck
    local_part_suffix_optional
    local_part_suffix = -admin : \
    -bounces : -bounces+* : \
    -confirm : -confirm+* : \
    -join : -leave : \
    -owner : -request : \
    -subscribe : -unsubscribe
    transport = mailman_virtual_transport

    Just instead of the Mailman stuff - check by subject or return address and/or have the option for both, etc.
