SPAM EMail in SBS 2003 .
Posted on 2006-11-14
This is a general question.
I have been deploying sbs 2k3 servers for a while now and clients have commented afterwards that they receive tons of junk email.
I am either taking them from a bunch of pop3 accounts to MX record email to IP. There is no known filtering on the pop3 accounts.
OR I have used POP3 connection manager and no change has occurred to their email accounts apart from I receive them somewhere else.
Any ideas here..... Are my clients pulling my leg :)
The only thing I can think of is that when the server goes onto MX record (SMTP Relay) then the server is now publically available and reporting to the world on port 25 that it can accept email for @domain.com (example domain).
But that would only cover half of the scenario,..
I've put this at 500 bc i need an answer to this urgently;...... as always.... :)
Thanks guys and gals
