Default Spam Protection - Beginners Guide?

Hi all,
first thanks for the great Perfect Server Ispconfig 3 debian lenny tutorial.

Everything is fine and running.

The only question for me right now is - my old server was managed and so i had nothing to do. the new one with that tutorial runs even better.
But what is i little strange for me is the fact, that so many spam mails are tried to be send over the server.

a few lines from mail.log:

so the question for me is:
is there a way to check before agains blacklists and block that mails before?

if its already integrated in ispconfig - what is an "best practice configuration".

i had a look at this tread:
http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/sho...ht=debian+spam

but it would be nice to get a little feedback, perhaps more people have problems with that topic and it could be helpful for more people?

if there is and how-to which i didnt find, please post links.

thanks all

thanks for that reply.

the link looks good.
do i understand it right that all customers on the server need in there dns record that SPF record?

for example my server is
domain.tld

customers

customer.tld, customer2.tld

i have to add this record to all dns records?

does anyone know if hetzner robot system supports SPF?

thanks

(i hoped this would get a vivid thread with user users with the same problems - seems like im the only )

You don't have to, but I recommend it.
