Mail Blocking

I’ve been a very busy beaver behind the scenes here. Just when I got the OK to go-ahead at my day-job with a more comprehensive spam-blocking solution (replacing eManager with SpamAssassin), I also got a consulting gig to hook up spam blocking for a couple of other small places. And, while I’m on a role, I’m going to re-implement virus-scanning for the sites hosted on

The interesting thing is the variety of Mail Transfer Agents used. We have Exim here and will be using amavis-ng and Clam AntiVirus. At my day-job, it is sendmail, mimedefang, and VirusWall. For the consulting gig, it is qmail, qmail-scanner, and RAV AntiVirus. Fun, Fun, Fun! Three completely different ways to solve the same problem!
