How to stop "Considered UNSOLICITED BULK EMAIL, apparently from you" notice
Hi All!

I've made my first "perfect server - without ISPConfig" :) with the help of the tutorials can be find at How To Forge. So I am very new at server configuration.
My mail server built up with postfix, amavisd-new, SpamAssassin, ClamAV + MySQL, and running on Debian Lenny.

Everything works fine but I always get "Considered UNSOLICITED BULK EMAIL, apparently from you" message in my outlook:

A message from <> to:

was considered unsolicited bulk e-mail (UBE).


It seems like somebody send me an e-mail in my name.

Please help...

Do you use ISPConfig 2 or 3?
Did you check if your server's blacklisted?

soskamoka 21st October 2009 16:08

Hi falko!
I do not use ISPConfig. When I installed the server I skipped ISPConfig...
Yes I have checked if the server is blacklisted,more times before and now but it isn't.

Similar problem
Hi ,

I have the exact same problem. How did you fix it?

Actually, I just believed that, I solved, because few days ago, I got a "so called" mail.

So I am working on it again.... ;)!

Same problem in Webmail
Here we use ISPConfig 3 + CentOS and this UBE problem appears only in Webmail, when we send inter-domain messages. In Outlook and Thunderbird, no problem.

Anyone have the same problem?

What's the value of mydomain in your amavisd configuration?

Benaiter 4th August 2010 19:49

The name of the server:

All times are GMT +2. The time now is 18:16.
