I am getting a FLOOD of email from yahoo.com that rips right through the spamfilter and forwards to our default smtp server.... 1000s of them...

The log shows:

07/02/03 00:03:50:083 -- (2532) Bypassed all rules for: risada@netpoint.com.br from Evans@yahoo.com

for example...

How is this getting through??? No yahoo.com address are entered to be bypassed (if fact there are only 2 addresses in the bypass list)

HELP!

thanks,

Roy

Can you sten a COMPLETE transcript of  ... say 2 of the messages.  You have not included enough of the log to track the issue.  I will also need to see your Domain / IP whitelist.

The posting was complete in as far as it goes... the whitelists are not relevent in this case.

The problem as it turns out was the SMTP server under IIS on this same machine (different IP).  It appears that any mail originating from the same machine on which SpamFilter is installed bypasses all rules...

Killing the smtp service stopped the problem...
