Anti-Spam filter application problem

December 1, 2011 at 05:37:55
Specs: Windows Server 2008
I use a MailFoundry 2100 as my anti-spam filter appliance. It is putting an "originating ip" stamp in the header that is incorrect. The tech-support insisted it is only stamping the host name, but that is not correct. Even if it looks at the firewall DNS for resolution, that host name does not resolve to the IP it is stamping. Is it possible that there is a host file in the box? It will not respond to telnet, so I can't see past the setup console.

Are we talking about outgoing or incoming mail? It sounds like you are talking about outgoing. How is the IP causing a problem? Yes, there is a hosts file, in your system but I doubt there is anything in it that's causing a problem. You can add entries, if you think they are needed.

Thanks, and yes I am talking about outgoing. The IP that is being stamped is constantly being put on BLs. It is an IP thath belonged to another mail server in the domain, but has since been removed. How do I view or change the hosts file and/or how can I view or change the SMTP banner/header?

Look in the active directory mail settings.

Thanks again for the reply. I wound up tearing apart my Outside Sidewinder and found an "All Traffic" rule positioned to high in the hierarchy.
