Ban IP That Repeatedly Tries To Relay Spam

It's frustrating to see pages of log files with one spam relay attempt after another, sometimes for hours at a time, all from the same IP address. Provide a means of automatically adding an IP address to the banned IP address list after some number of unauthenticated relay attempts within some time ...

Re: "Blocked Addresses" Feature Broken in MailEnableAdmin.ms

Hi, Ian, it's been over three weeks and now I find that the newly-released version 8.50 still has this serious bug. I realize that I'm using the Standard Edition out of the generosity of the MailEnable company and that I am not owed a fix on this, but I would really appreciate it and maybe a heads-...

IMAP.TXT, IMAP-TOP.TXT, POP.TXT, POP-TOP.TXT, etc.

On the root directory of the Windows Server 2008 R2 system on which I am running ME Standard 8.04, I found the following log files: IMAP.TXT, IMAP-TOP.TXT, POP.TXT, POP-TOP.TXT, SMTP-IN.TXT, SMTP-IN-TOP.TXT, SMTP-OU.TXT They contain some brief summaries of ME activity, but I don't know why they are ...

Ban IP That Sends To Blocked Address

All of us have e-mail addresses which only receive spam, often addresses that were never valid and assigned to users in our domains. I would like a checkbox to auto-ban any IP address that sends to any address in my blocked address list -- in the same manner as banning one for sending to too many ba...

Whitelisting By Sender E-Mail Address

I would like a feature where I could enable a whitelist of e-mail sender addresses. When a MAIL FROM: command appears with one of the whitelisted sender addresses, that would cause the incoming IP address to be excluded from reverse DNS blacklist and PTR checks. While sender addresses can be forged,...

Expiration of auto-banned IP addresses.

MailEnable needs the ability to set a time limit on bans of IP addresses (SMTP Properties --> Security tab --> Connection Dropping). As it stands now, the feature denies the IP address in perpetuity if the number of failed commands/addresses is reached. So let's say you set yours to 10. I compose an...

Re: "Blocked Addresses" Feature Broken in MailEnableAdmin.ms

Ian, Thanks so much. I thought I was going nuts at first. I even reinstalled the server OS and MailEnable just to make sure it was not some weird permissions problem. BTW, I was last posting when MailEnable was a young product -- back in 2005. At the time, I was using fmaxwell, but I no longer seem ...

"Blocked Addresses" Feature *FIXED* in MailEnableAdmin.msc

NOTE: This problem was fixed in MailEnable 8.51! Many thanks to the MailEnable Team and to Ian for getting the problem in the queue to be addressed. I am running MailEnable 8.04 on Windows Server 2008 R2 64 bit. The "blocked addresses" feature (SMTP > Blocked Addresses) fails when entering a blocke...
