postfix spam zen.spamhaus.org



Hi NQ,


just wondering, did anyone add :


reject_rbl_client zen.spamhaus.org in the smtpd_recipient_restrictions ? If yes, what longterm experiences ?


My logfiles looks like this after I put this in, just wondering is it working too good and ham is rejected ?

Since I use spamhouse I have nearly no more spam and I never heard about rejected ham.

Rejecting messages is in my opinion better than move them into a spam folder. I you reject ham the sender will be informed by his mail server and can contact you on a different way. If ham gets moved into the spam folder and you get a lot of spam, you will not find it. Even if you check your spam folder regularly, the chance that you find this message is very low. I think most users delete the spam folder without checking anything.
