    There is some wonderful information here. Thank you contributers.

    I was wondering, I get a lot of spam that spamassassin can't block. Mainly this spam can get through because spammers are using images only in their email. Is there a reject list where I can place the IP address of the servers that send me the most spam in "server wide"? For an example, I get a lot of spam from 69.6.27.22. Is there a way that I can have mail that comes from this ip address be rejected server wide. I used to do this via procmailrc

    Also, what is the spammers file in the /etc directory? What is it for?

    Sincerely,

    Tim Rice

    Maybe adding this line to your /etc/hosts.deny:

    ALL: 69.6.27.22

    Since IP addresses change all the time, I instead had SA set the scores higher for those 'image only' emails.

    I did this in my own Cpanel, configuring SA, but it can be done server wide also if it works for you.

    HTML_IMAGE_ONLY_02 4

    HTML_IMAGE_RATIO_02 4

    There's actually a lot of these more of these type of tests that you can raise the score.

    Thanks for the information. I have not been able to make ANY changes to the exim file and have it start back up. I have tried to stop exim, make changes, reboot, then restart exim and still no luck. It does not matter what I do. If I modify the exim conf file, it dies.
