Potentially, but then no more than anyone with a regular domain name. Spam filters look at the contents of e-mails to determine whether they might be spam or not and if you trust a sender you add their e-mail (either the specific address or the entire domain) to your whitelist. Now, while your domain and address is random, it should be treated no ...

If you are trying to send from a home-class Internet service using a DHCP IP address, the entire subnet has been listed as DHCP by your ISP (they are required to do this), and that has been picked up by the blacklists. If you have a DHCP IP address, another major issue is that your PTR DNS record (used to make sure that you are who you say you are, and not a ...

If you're having trouble configuring the standard mail programs, you can use a command-line SMTP client such as sendEmail. Along with the address, message, and other data, simply specify an SMTP server. You can use GMail along with a username and password for example. Here are the available command-line switches:

I actually do exactly that on my Exchange Server: I create different e-mail addresses for every business I do business with, and associate them all with my account. I have Dell@, Symantec@, etc. If one starts getting SPAM, I can delete it, but I also know who is not careful with my e-mail address. You will potentially run into problems, but not because of ...

One of the useful tools to resolve this issue would be e-mail headers. Often they can reveal WHY that e-mail went to spam folder. E-mail headers contain full information on what happened to e-mail while it was in transit. Often you will be able to see results of anti-spam processing which was done on the e-mail. And often it is full report which can tell you ...

In addition to what Chris said it also depends on the IP of your host. I deal with customers who get go daddy domains and domains hosted in eastern Europe only to find out the IP is on 20+ blacklists. Of course you can petition the list to get off. But be careful some unscrupulous providers have their entire blocks black listed and some of the black lists ...

I do the same thing in gmail: I use myEmail+websiteName@gmail.com when signing up for stuff. Anything after the + is ignored by gmail - it will all still go to myEmail@gmail.com.

Your fundamental problem is going to be that even if you wrote or found a mail server implemented in PHP, you're not going to be able to run it on your host. The web server executing your PHP scripts is listening on port 80 (and maybe 443), not 25, 587, or 465. The scripts will get terminated by the web server after running too long or using too much RAM. ...

It is theoretically possible, but no one does it since a mail server is a large, complex beast and there are already so many available written in other languages

You can use a free service like Google Apps with your domain. It allows up to 50 free addresses.

You probably won't have trouble getting in to other people's mailboxes anymore than if you had the email someemail@somesite.com. Most (all?) filter programs can't distinguish between f902j3@sdkfj.com and joe1243@site.com, provided that you have your email server set up correctly. That being said, don't reinvent the wheel if you don't have to. Gmail has this ...

Expanding on @ernies comment, the answer is "it depends". You can typically take the domain name part of the email and find the MX records for it. Very often (but not always) this will give you a hint as to the incoming mail server - for example "mail.example.com" might imply both smtp and pop3 are handled through "mail.example.com". Similarly ...

I wrote a tutorial a while ago on SMTP auth on Postfix. The source can be found on http://blog.mtak.nl/2013/04/simple-smtp-auth-on-postfix/ . TLS Whenever you send a password over the network it ought to be encrypted. Add the following parameters to your main.cf to enable TLS: # TLS parameters smtpd_tls_cert_file=/etc/ssl/certs/ssl-cert-snakeoil.pem ...

I think I actually worked it out. I found this page in the Dovecot documentation (not well highlighted I must admit! I completely missed the tab at the top of the page): http://wiki2.dovecot.org/Upgrading/2.0?highlight=%28unix_listener%29 I reverted to the original code block originally documented on the website: protocol lda { log_path = ...

I'll give you two choices: First, you can edit the file /etc/postfix/main.cf, and delete the line that starts "always_bcc=". You'll need root access to edit it; if you're comfortable using a command-line editor like vi or nano, you can just use that with sudo. If you're not comfortable with that, I recommend using TextWrangler -- it can use your admin ...

or any suggestion to get proves? View the email headers on received email, they show the intermediate points through which the email passed and the date and time of processing at each point. This can prove where the delay occurs. SMTP defines the trace information of a message, which is also saved in the header using the following two fields:[50] ...

I would recommend xmail as a production intranet email server on windows because it is very easy to configure and administer while being quite feature rich. Mercury is a bit tougher to administer, but has more features.

If it's using standard email protocols (SMTP, IMAP/POP, etc.) then almost any email client will do. If it's an Exchange server then you'll need to use Evolution with the Exchange connector.

Check if you're listed here: Spamhaus Blocklist Removal Center. There's another blocklist checker here. Note that Microsoft says: If Microsoft believes that unauthorized or improper use is being made of any Service, it may, without notice, take such action as it, in its sole discretion, deems appropriate, including blocking messages from a particular ...

the reason for this is because you are sending the mail from your localhost via the ISP. a lot of spammers do this. this is the reason why dynamic sub-nets of ISPs are on the "black list" for outgoing e-mail. because this is a security setting handled by the service provider, you have to check with hotmail directly. you could start here ...

If you're on a blacklist you're either sending spam, or sharing a subnet with someone who is. Since you mention using a local mail-server it sounds like your ISP has chosen not to block outgoing SMTP-traffic, which makes it all the more likely that a malicious (or virus-infested) user was sending out enough spam for the subnet to be blacklisted. First of ...

I'd definitely take a look at SmarterMail if I were you. I've had great success with it in the past.

If you are running 8.04 or later, you may also wish to install the "unattended-upgrades" package. It automatically downloads and installs security updates for your version of Ubuntu.

Here you can find some information about Email Services. It is from the Ubuntu server guide, but maybe this can help you.

You might try looking at this since you're new to it. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MailServer It's the Ubuntu wiki hub for building a mail server and which packages are avalible in their repositories, And it should be totally free (always a bonus). Hope that helps, Kravlin

Wherever you downloaded EFS from, or any IP hop in between knows that you probably have an open SMTP connection at your downloading address and therefore can SMTP "ping" your mydomain and then sell the address off to spammers. Did you have to register the download? Does the spam have a proper To: address or is it made up? If my guess is correct, that kinda ...

Well as the developer of EFS, I can categorically tell you it most certainly is not malware. I would suggest you only ever download from our web site http://www.chimera.co.nz/ and not from 3rd party sites (unless they reference back to us) You have to be careful, when downloading from 3rd party web sites if they ask you to "sign up" with your email address - ...

I believe phpList may help you in case you want a dedicated system. But is the solution worth the effort? You can just create local rule in your mail client to forward email accordingly. Say IF the incoming message has certain qualities, THEN it is forwarded to said technician.
