How To Block Spam Before It Enters The Server (Postfix)

  • HowtoForge; By Falko Timme (Posted by falko on Jun 6, 2007 2:20 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: Tutorial; Groups: Linux
The last few weeks have seen a dramatic increase in spam (once again). Estimates say that spam makes now up for 80 - 90% of all emails, and many mail servers have difficulties in managing the additional load caused by the latest spam, and spam filters such as SpamAssassin do not recognize large parts of that spam as they did before. Fortunately, we can block a big amount of that spam at the MTA level, for example by using blacklists, running tests on the sender and recipient domains, etc. An additional benefit of doing this is that it lowers the load on the mail servers because the (resource-hungry) spamfilters have to look at less emails.

  • OSWeekly.com; By Matt Hartley (Posted by gsh on Jun 6, 2007 12:45 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: Editorial; Groups: Linspire
Linspire is a company that is never dull in regards to controversy. From their Lindows days to the recent Freespire release day, they have always been in the thick of things. Lately, however, it feels like they have been overly quiet, maybe too quiet. Perhaps it has something to do with people and their expectation of seeing the latest developments of CNR to other distributions.

Microsoft puts in Stirling work for unified security Nirvana

Microsoft is prepping a security software suite that will take it deep into Symantec and McAfee heartland. They won't be quaking in their boots just yet: the suite, called Stirling, hits the streets in 2009, at the earliest.

[So after letting other companies make money closing the holes in its code MS wants a slice of the pie for themselves. Why not just fix the code in the first place? Oh, that's right. There's no money in doing that. - Scott]

Dell vs. System76 Ubuntu Comparison

  • MadPenguin.org; By Matt Hartley (Posted by gsh on Jun 6, 2007 5:50 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: Editorial; Groups: Ubuntu
Now that Dell has entered into the Linux OEM marketplace, we have to consider how this is going to affect other companies that have already been selling Linux-ready PCs for some time now. In short, what Dell is doing is not really news by itself. It is taking an existing concept and simply making it something that has been able to really gain some press. Great for them, but are they really doing anything productive for the Linux cause in the long run?
