I'm pretty much of a Linux newbie, but we are getting inundated by spam.
I followed all the instructions in the SpamSnake tutorial (http://www.howtoforge.com/the-perfec...ke-ubuntu-8.04
) and it isn't producing any errors, but it also isn't doing anything.
When I log into MailWatch there are no messages listed. Under Recent Messages and most of the Reports it always returns "No Rows Retrieved". I checked the status and configurations under Tools/Reports and they don't return any errors.
I am receiving a huge number of emails from the system that all start "Postfix SMTP server: errors from unknown[SOME.IP.ADDR.HERE]" They are almost entirely addressed to invalid recipients, but some look like they could be legitimate mail. I sent a test mail in and it never arrived in my mailbox.
What is my next step for troubleshooting this?
