    I recently just changed my /etc/antivirus.exim file to filter out spam messages. I've been having some recent troubles with high loads / spamd. From searching the forums here i found several suggestions using this url and information should help with my problem:

    I noticed in my filter log that it's picking up nobody messages:

    Code:
    2007-02-27 21:56:15 1HMHnT-0005XR-Nw from nobody@myserver.com is forged fake
    I took a look at my exim_mainlog and found this:

    Code:
    2007-02-27 21:56:15 1HMHnT-0005XR-Nw <= nobody@myserver.com U=nobody P=local S=3293 T="Testimonial added at " from <nobody@myserver.com> for sales@actualdomainname.com
    2007-02-27 21:56:15 cwd=/var/spool/exim 3 args: /usr/sbin/exim -Mc 1HMHnT-0005XR-Nw
    2007-02-27 21:56:15 1HMHnT-0005XR-Nw => discarded (system filter)
    2007-02-27 21:56:15 1HMHnT-0005XR-Nw Completed QT=0s
    
    Is there any way that I can whitelist the nobody user in this script or should if i comment out the following line

    $received_protocol is "local" or

    I think i may have figured it out, since the comments in my filter log are "forged fake", i am just going to comment out this section.

    Code:
    #logfile /var/log/filter.log 0644
    #if (
    #$received_protocol is "local" or
    #$received_protocol is "esmtpa"
    #) and (
    #$header_from contains "@hotmail.com" or
    #$header_from contains "@yahoo.com" or
    #$header_from contains "@aol.com"
    #)
    #then
    #logwrite "$tod_log $message_id from $sender_address is forged fake"
    #seen finish
    #endif
    If anyone knows that this is the correct workaround for this please let me know.
