    Hi everyone,

    Anyone have tried the Spamdyke HOW-TO (http://www.blueoryx.info/linux_administration/spamdyke) with Plesk 8.6 ?
    I'm really interested in trying another anti SPAM solution rather than spamassassin included in Plesk.

    Any experience will be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    It does not work an my Centos5.2 :( In Services SMTP gets red and Mail is not working anymore.

    But this Problem seems to be in Centos5 only :(

    Hello,

    I have tried it, followed it step by step and it works perfectly. It's the only credible solution I have found to block literally hundreds of spam messages a day. It allows you also to keep SMTP authentication. Yesterday alone it blocked 1527 spam messages!

    P.S. 1: It is true that in services management you'll have a red cross in the SMTP service, but the service is actually working.

    P.S. 2: I also have Centos.

    Hi Scott,

    Umm... you know spamdyke's greylisting feature is actually only a tiny part of what it does? Many people don't even bother to enable that part.

    The main features are options to:
    reject if no rDNS
    reject if rDNS doesn't resolve to an IP
    delay answering just a tad to put off spammers
    reject if CCed/BCCed to more than X recipients
    full auth loggins
    full dnsrbl reject logging
    whitelists for just about every option
    blacklists for just about every option
    err....there's loads more.

    That's why I keep saying it is the best thing since sliced bread. Seriously. Greylisting is just a bit of icing :)

    Faris.

    Spamassassin does all that too, Im not faulting spamdyke though. Its a nice package.

    One programmer from Serversupportforum(.de) wrotes a nice tool for Spamdyke in Plesk (Plesk Spamdyke Control Panel). It´s just only beta and it only works with spamdyke and it´s simply nice ;)
