help: spam email downloaded on linux but not on win95?

Post by David. E. Gob » Thu, 06 Sep 2001 19:45:40



Hi all;

I have been setting up and testing my RedHat 6.2 server
(sendmail/fetchmail/procmail). Lately when I download email with the
Rh server I keep getting this spam email (see spam email headers
below).

fetchmail does not remove the email from my ISP. But with win95/eudora
lite, the spam is not downloaded...

Is this a spam virus on my ISP or what? Anyhelp would be welcomed.

No, just some filters you have installed in windows but not on linux.

Uh, thats not that easy.

time.
Forward the spam with the full header to the provider of the spammer. Thats
the best you can do.
Ok, it's your time, but only to filter it will not prevent spammers from
flooding the net. Only by cutting them off this will happen. So report
every SPAM you get to the abuse of the providers.

Hmmm, perhaps some automatic filters, I don't know. I did't use Windows for
3 Years now and I'm happy that I got my wife to Linux this year.



Oh, you have to do it with every spam and it is not always from cox.com.
thats what I meant. We all don't want to have spam so we have to fight it,
kicking the spamers of till they give up. Thats work for every of us to do.
I got 2 or three spams a day, I take 5 minutes for it to send it to the
provider, if everyone would do this, than we will have less and less spam.

If we just ignore it (with filters) than the problem will not go away. The
problem is not the spam itself but the financial things around it.

It's probably a malformed mail header causing different problems in
Eudora and fetchmail, or a bug in the POP or IMAP server causing the
same. I've run into this sort of thing before; the message just doesn't
get deleted by some clients, or can't be retrieved with some. I suggest
you try another tool (Netscape, KMail, pine, whatever), or if
necessary, access the POP server manually via telnet (you'll need to
know a handful of commands to be able to delete the message). If you
still can't get it fixed, contact your ISP and tell them to manually
delete the message.

You might also consider sending a copy of the message to the Eudora
and/or fetchmail developers, if you think it's the mail header that's
causing problems. They might be able to get their systems to handle the
message despite its problems. This wouldn't be a short-term solution,
though; more of a bug fix for the mail programs, although depending
upon the details of the input, it might arguably not be a bug in the
program.

1. Bulk email sender (not (NOT!!!) spam) recommendations?

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

Note: I'm asking this on behalf of a small company that I work with that
occasionally sends newsletters to customers who have signed up for them on
the company's website.

I'm working with a FreeBSD 4.7-STABLE system that acts as a webserver for a
small hosting firm.  They need to send about 25,000 emails on a regular
basis, and they use Sendmail as their MTA (and they and I have no desire to
change that).  Right now, their mail is send via an in-house program that
essentially calls the sendmail binary a lot of times.  Said program has a
tendency to cripple the server during these bursts, and has no provisions
for anything like collecting a list of bounced emails.

We're not really in a position to install a lot of different programs for
testing; the idea of screwing up 25,000 mails with their clients' names on
it just isn't pretty.  So, then, I could use a few recommendations.  We need
a program that can take a list of email addresses and a message, and deliver
that message to the named recipients, probably by injecting them into
Sendmail's outbound queue.  Extra happy bonus points if the program can be
configured to parse bounce messages to collate a list of dead addresses.

Also, I've followed some online instructions to make a few (16)
subdirectories under /var/spool/mqueue, and added to the local freebsd.mc:

    define(QUEUE_DIR,`/var/spool/mqueue/q*')dnl
    define(`confMAX_RUNNERS_PER_QUEUE', `16')dnl

Does FreeBSD have a built-in way for launching a bunch of extra queue
runners, or should that be part of the bulk-mail sending script?

This company's server will be forever grateful for any useful suggestions.
TIA!
