    I know alot of you are probably using Spamcop. Here's a quick tip to see how it's been doing.

    cd /var/log
    grep spamcop exim_mainlog | cat -n


    Also, if your using the ordb.org database, you can do

    grep relays.ordb.org exim_mainlog | cat -n

    Of course you can also just view the exim_rejectlog too..

    Ahhh.. thats better :) I wanted to know how many.. just never wanted to count the lines in a normal grep.. this makes it a lot easier :)

    449 so far today for spamcop
    21 for ORDB

    They have both been very very usefull in cutting the amount of spam sent to our servers.. I love them both!

    Their website address is http://www.spamcop.net but their is nothing to install, you need to configure exim to use their database.

    Search the forums here for spamcop and you will find more information about it, basically you can enable as follows by adjusting your exim.conf file in your /etc directory.

    rbl_domains = relays.ordb.org/reject : bl.spamcop.net/reject
    recipients_reject_except = postmaster@yourdomain.com

    Thought I'd give back a little ditty of my own. ;)

    cd /var/log
    grep host exim_rejectlog | cat -n

    This will number how many &relay& attempts have been caught (and stopped) which some may like to know as well. Amazing, the increase I've seen in the Asian attempts.

    grep host exim_mainlog | cat -n | less

    Will also show some interesting info or for just seeing what's going on.
