Dead mail filling up
Posted on 2004-11-24
We use Domino 6.5.1 currently.
I am a newbie to the world of managing an email server.
We have two mailboxes where dead mail goes. Both of them are constantly getting filled with crap like viruses. I don't know if they are harvesting or what, but they try every combination of letters & numbers @ our domain name and some of it makes it out to the users. But mostly it just piles up in here. Once in awhile I'll block it on the server from coming, but it will come from a different address a minute later.
Then after that piles up it seems like some of our good messages are not being sent out to outside people. Once I "resend" it it goes fine, just like it was stuck for a day or so.
Yet there is nothing wrong with the message, tells me the gateway doesn't exist.
I don't know much about spam , just that a lot of it is spoofed and its a nightmare. How can I avoid my dead mail filling up with these wacky spam/virus messages aside from blocking the addresses? The domains are usually valid domains that I can't block.
Help :) Thanks!
We are currently using Norton Antivirus Corporate edition but have no spam blocking in place right now.
