License count [message #1532] Mon, 30 October 2006 17:12

With 65 users and about 15 "alias" names, I am having the same problem as others by spammers being allowed to send mail to non existent local users and using up all my licenses. (Stuff addressed to "gotcha@mydomain.com should not count). The biggest problem seems to be that once that limit is reached, ALL e-mail is going through without being scored and deleted/redirected. Assuming that NST could 'remember' the names from the 100 licenses that it counted, it should still process/score e-mail for those names, and just let any new names go on through unprocessed.

As NoSpamToday! works as a transparent SMTP/POP3 proxy, it accepts only
recipient addresses your mail server also accepts.
This means you have two options:
1) Configure your mail server to accept only those addresses you really
want and to reject all other addresses.

or

2) Use the "Open relay protection" in the NoSpamToday! Admin wizard to
restrict the set of recipient addresses to those you really want. This
can be configured on the third page of the SMTP proxy wizard.

I have my e-mail server set to reject mail from unknown users. And the NST log shows "unknown" by the names of those "made up" names (after running "SpamLogs"), so it seems to be working. What about case sensitivity? Does Bob@mydomain.com and bob@mydomain.com count as 1 user or 2?

The recipient address check is case-insensitive and thus Bob@mydomain.com and
bob@mydomain.com count as one recipient only.
