    For over 24 hours we appear to be being bombarded with spam aimed at our main domain. The mails are being sent to non existent addresses. We have the default address blackholed, but there are so many its causing exim to wobble and in turn the entire server to grind to a halt.

    We tried banning IP's, but as you know there are hundreds of differnet ones so this isnt helping. We hoped that over time it would just die off, but there doesnt appear to be any let up yet. We have various Exim tweaks in operation.

    Any ideas on what we can do to stop the pressure?

    Cheers guys.
