DHCP users

I followed tydel's advice and setup danga.com's postfix to not accept mail from DHCP addresses. If you try to send mail to me or anybody @danga.com now from your home DHCP server, you'll get:

554 DHCP Pool clients should use their ISP's mail server

Tailing my mail.log, it sure is rejecting a shitload of messages!

But really, you shouldn't be running an MTA on your DHCP address anyway. I know this will block some geeks who just want to run their own mail server, but they should be smarthosting it elsewhere.

Next step: ClamAV? That's the one you recommended, right scsi?
