Bill,

I think the mistery is solved...

From your log we saw that the IP starting the connection is is the IP SpamFilter is listening on! That one is trusted by default, so it's able to send anything it wants... You'll need to run your anti-relay tests from a box other than the one SpamFilter is installed on :-)

In my case, none of the four conditions appears to be true.

I sent you an e-mail containing a zipped copy of the log file and the .ini file.

Thanks for checking into this for me.

Bill,

The log entry shows a "Bypassed all rules for: ". This usually means one of four things:

  • The IP address you are testing from is listed in the "Excluded Domains/IPs" white list.
  • The "From" domain is listed in the above white list
  • The "From" email address is listed in the "Excluded FROM EMails" white list
  • The RCPT TO address you are testing with is listed in the "Unfiltered Emails" white list.

If neither of these four are true, if you can then email us the full copy of the log containing the reject (with IPs and emails) along with your SpamFilter.ini file we'll take a look

I am performing open relay testing on my server. I am using a telnet session to port 25 on my server and entering commands manually. I have found that entering a non-local RCPT TO does not generate a "550 Relaying is prohibited" message -- it responds with an OK. Also, here is what the log shows:

04/10/03 12:13:03:078 -- (565) Bypassed all rules for: somebody@somewhere.com from whoever@whoever.com
04/10/03 12:13:16:796 -- (565) EMail from  to somebody@somewhere.com was queued. Size: 1 KB
04/10/03 12:13:16:812 -- (177) Sending email from  to
somebody@somewhere.com
04/10/03 12:13:16:968 -- (177) server error - Relaying is prohibited
04/10/03 12:13:31:265 -- (565) Disconnect

I am wondering about the "Bypassed all rules for" message for a non-local address, and why SpamFilter doesn't immediately generate a relay error after a non-local RCPT TO.
