View Full Version : Mail Server Bouncing

10-19-2003, 07:53 PM
Is there anyway to disallow people from bouncing mail off my server. I think this should be the default for all mail servers, because people can use them to bounce spam off with out any authentication. I would like this done for my mail server immediately, I have already had complaints from server companies saying they have received spam messages from my server, when they were really just bounced. I can not have this happening anymore. Thank you.

If by "bouncing" you mean "relaying" it should be disabled.
You can check the server at http://www.abuse.net/relay.html
Enter your domain in the "Address to test" box and click the "Test for Relay" button (the other info is not needed).

I checked mine and relaying is not allowed.

The spammers may just be puting your domain as the "from" address to mask it's origin.
