Bounced email [*****SPAM***** Policy Framework]

by on Nov.20, 2007, under Rant, Technology

I??have had quite a few of these lately ,

this is the result of spam tosser spoofing email from my domain, but the bit that has pissed me off here is the fact the target email server even bothered to send a reply.

I know the email is spoofed as it has breached the SPF, so why even bother responding, Just delete it. respond during the SMTP ??conversation, not afterwards

Apparently almost 90% of all email on the internet is spam, but how much of that is bounces and “no user here” errors from mail servers with admins who have a 12th centry idea of server config

    One of the early changes I made in my present job was to stop the sending out of NDRs to virus infection attempts. I’m amazed anyone still has those type of things configured.
