    There's not much you can do about it - the spammers probably use a remote server to send their spam, but use your email address as the sender address - it's a weakness of the SMTP protocol; it allowsyou to set whatever sender address you like.

    I have over 400 mail accounts complaining after i made them happy and used to no-spam, now this wave of phishing spam and such sellis phizer - lol

    my RBL look like this and I had more but some seem to be gone and I keep shrinking the list.
    # smtpd_recipient_restrictions = permit_sasl_authenticated,permit_mynetworks,reject_unauth_destination
    smtpd_helo_required = yes
    disable_vrfy_command = yes
    invalid_hostname_reject_code = 554
    multi_recipient_bounce_reject_code = 554
    non_fqdn_reject_code = 554
    relay_domains_reject_code = 554
    unknown_address_reject_code = 554
    unknown_client_reject_code = 554
    unknown_hostname_reject_code = 554
    unknown_local_recipient_reject_code = 554
    unknown_relay_recipient_reject_code = 554
    unknown_sender_reject_code = 554
    unknown_virtual_alias_reject_code = 554
    unknown_virtual_mailbox_reject_code = 554
    unverified_recipient_reject_code = 554
    unverified_sender_reject_code = 554
    smtpd_recipient_restrictions =
                check_policy_service inet:
    smtpd_data_restrictions =
    the "check_policy_service" is postgrey!

    What exactly is the question?

    Simple question really , Did anyone find a way to stop these new spoofers spamming lately, I have had relative no spam until recently and it seem the few RBL blocks as well as greylisting does not block them,

    Do you perhaps have an better RBL list or technology to stop them?:confused:

    SPF, an email anti-forgery system now used by Google, AOL, etc., could help:

    See also the link provided before by Virtualm, Tightening SPAM control on ISPConfig Server, with details on SPF, etc.
