A m8 of mine is running a mail server ! but we found some one coming onto server and using it to spam other ppl wot we cant fig out is how he's doing it, he hasen't got an account and to get on he would need a userid and password which he dont use; he just relay's through us and we want to know how to stop him his ip is world wide address so we cant find his isp!
any ideas ? server proggy is called argo.
you don't need a username or password for smtp servers - ie:
220 Mail Relay Service ESMTP (scrabble.freeuk.net)
250 scrabble.freeuk.net Hello adsl-xx-xxx.claranet.co.uk [xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx]
mail from: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
250 <email@example.com> is syntactically correct
rcpt to: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
250 <firstname.lastname@example.org> is syntactically correct
354 Enter message, ending with "." on a line by itself
subject: job offer
please have a job and a million quid on me.
250 OK id=17o6em-000L5A-00
221 scrabble.freeuk.net closing connection
Connection to host lost.
just set the software up to allow messages to just his domain, ie if his email address is [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] just allow emails for bigjugs.com
Just had a quick look at the Argo homepage and it doesn't really tell you if it supports domains etc - says you can add them so it should be alright but doesn't say whether it rejects mail for domains not on the list.
give it a go.
if you like give me a yell when you've changed it and we can give it a test.

Just the fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply that all who are laughed at are geniuses. They laughed at Columbus, they laughed at Fulton, they laughed at the Wright brothers. But they also laughed at Bozo the Clown.
