Blacklist File
 
Hi,

Can anyone tell me which file to edit in PuTTy to blacklist email addresses and IPs from my mail server? I'm using a virtual dedicated server and running a mail server locally. I'm receiving alot of spam and unfortunately the email program I'm using has no options for filtering spam or blocking senders or domains.

If I could just figure out which file to edit in SSH and "where" to find it...that would be great!

Any ideas?

If you use Postfix, probably /etc/postfix/access in a default installation.

man 5 access

for the manual. Don't forget to hash it with postmap /etc/postfix/access.. :)
