Subject Backscatter spam
Date Thu, 03 Mar 2005 21:39:52 GMT
I'm transiting a lot of backscatter spam as described here
http://www.postfix.org/BACKSCATTER_README.html

Fast fail is recommended as the method for handling this here
http://spamlinks.net/filter-bounce.htm
Which says "
Mail servers should not generate bounces to non-local recipients, but should
instead reject the mail during the SMTP session, and leave the remote
sending server to handle the bounce.
Link: Rejecting in General 
Link: Rejecting with Sendmail 
Link: Rejecting with Postfix 
Link: Rejecting with qmail 
Link: Rejecting with FTGate 
Link: Rejecting with Exim 
"

I know you have reasons for not doing fast fail
http://wiki.apache.org/james/NoFastFail

Not withstanding that, I'm keen to handle this issue well - is there a
standard way to do this with Apache JAMES?

Thanks in advance,

David
