SPF failure for local postmaster

When non-delivery reports are received from external mail servers they tend to use the <> from address which is then handled as the postmaster of the domain receiving the report. The IP address is however that of the reporting server. The SPF check promptly fails as it reports (quite correctly) that...

You should also have a look at AWStats which does a pretty good job of delivering email stats. There is a thread in the forum (forget which one now) which deals with this.

Have you tried setting the MTA to use only one thread? This was mentioned elsewhere as multiple invocations of the anti-virus software (in my case AVG 7) can cause problems in deleting infected mail. Since I made the change I rarely find anything left in the scratch folder.

Activity logging

We use AWStats to log email activity on our server. The reports are fairly comprehensive and very informative.

The whole system was fairly easy to setup and automate.

See the following forum link for more details:

Extremely rude

So your lack of knowledge is enough reason to write that extremely rude rant about MailEnable ? In my opinion you were way out of line and should be apologising to the staff at MailEnable for your bullying tactics and rude behaviour. Why don't you go and investigate some other mail products and spar...

Blacklist for Dynamic IP's

It would appear that the majority of spam we receive gets sent from dial-up accounts. Does anyone have any suggestions for a decent RDNS blacklist particularly for blocking dynamic ip's.

Maximum Message Size

This was supposed to be fixed in Pro 1.18 but there was a problem and a hotfix was issued that corrected the problem but caused others. Pro 1.19 works correctly with a size of 0.

Bad mail

I had a similar problem after installing the hotfix to the SMTP service for 1.18. Re-installed the original 1.18 SMTP service and the problem went away.

Reprocessing log files

This is the command I used on my Win2000 server to reprocess old log files (after renaming the existing files): for %a in ("C:\Progra~1\MailEn~1\Logging\SMTP\ex0404*.log") do awstats.pl -config=mailenable -update -logfile="C:\awstats\tools\MELog 2AWStats.exe %a | " (This is all one line and will pro...

MailEnable & AWStats

I have developed a replacement for MELogConvert.exe which correctly handles message sizes for emails. I looked at the source code for MELogConvert.exe and saw that it was too simplistic to ever get the correct email sizes out. To use the replacement you simply edit your awstats config file and repla...

Spam filter

I currently use MEFilter which is doing a great job. I tried SpamAssassin which promised to teach itself about spam but, as you mention, running in a single thread is painful. Didn't try SNIMTA as I could not see any option to hold mail for eyeball checks.

AVG Command line scanner

Email technicalsupport@grisoft.com and ask for AVGSCANL.EXE, they will send it to you. Make sure you ask for the correct file as they tried to tell me that AVGSCAN.EXE does not support exit codes (which we all know by now) even though I mentioned AVGSCANL.EXE. I did get the file on my second request.
