Using the Sendmail Reject List to manage spam
The Sendmail Reject List is a list of email sources that
you identify as sources of unsolicited email. It prohibits delivery of
email messages from the sources identified in the list to any site user.
For example, if you include the IP address 126.96.36.199
in the Reject List, all email messages that originate from the address
will be blocked from being relayed to all users of the site.
The email source can be:
email address - The email address is blocked.
site - All email messages that originate from the site are blocked.
IP address - All email messages that originate from the specified
IP address are blocked.
If you enter a partial IP address, all email messages
that originate from any IP address in the subnet are blocked. For example,
will block all IP addresses in the subnet, 188.8.131.52
You can also use the Spam
Filter service to control and manage spam. The Sendmail Reject List
and spam filter lists vary
in their approach and flexibility in managing spam.
The Spam Filter service offered
in the earlier versions of Ensim Pro/Basic is now renamed to Sendmail
Reject List. Ensim Pro/Basic introduces a new Spam Filter service
that uses the SpamAssassin™ tool to enable spam scanning.
