    spam & hotmail

    I noticed alot of connections from microsft IPs, so checked the exim_mainlog and found this (I blocked the entire microsoft /14 in the firewall to this server), what's the best way to track this down, I've looked throgh the all logs and processes running but can't find anything

    Thanks in advance

    I actually asked Msn a couple of month ago and was told that error means they are getting too much email at the same time - usually virus bounces. I get messages like that all the time with my mailing lists, and Msn and I traced a couple and verified that is what the problem was.

    So, when you see a new virus out - expect it.

    Yahoo does the same thing. Their error message is the same.

    You could also be forwarding or sending SPAM - with that email address you show, although Hotmail does not block much. They just blackhole it.

    I found that the bounces said the mailer was X-Mailer: IPB PHP Mailer (invision board), never did figure out how to stop it except blackhole hotmail.
