DHCP users [Jul. 17th, 2004|10:44 pm]

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?

I've been smart relaying since the comcast mail server stopped accepting mail from its own members, but I still hate it on principle. It's like The Man came down and said "ah ah, mail is only for us grown-ups; now run along to ebay!"

I've had a good server and good connection for almost as long as I can remember, so I'm more on the Comcast side of things.

Get a real connection! :P
