Hi Till thanks for the quick response .
The centOS ispconfig 3 server is running as a standalone server at the moment . No other servers are available on our network .
here is a typical mail log - shows we are blacklisted because of the backscatter , but shows you the rest of the log too.
Aug 21 18:19:56 neptune postfix/smtp: 630812E5BE2: to=, relay=cdptpa-smtpin02.mail.rr.com[22.214.171.124]:25, delay=64323, delays=64302/0.01/21/0, dsn=4.7.1, status=deferred (host cdptpa-smtpin02.mail.rr.com[126.96.36.199] refused to talk to me: 554 5.7.1 - ERROR: Mail refused - <XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX> - See http://postmaster.rr.com/amIBlockedB...XX.XXX.XXX.XXX
XXX is our ip x'd out
Also , the time on the server is wrong .
if i use "date" in the console i get
Tue Aug 21 17:05:06 CEST 2012
if i send an email to myself it sayes it was recieved by the server at 8/21/2012 11:06 AM .
how can i remedy that ?
