Little Request (was:RE: I need your help -FW: [SPAM 202.57.100.24 ] BE PREPARED! 1194131)

Hello Team,

Thank you for all your help (special thanks to Peter Kiem for the very quick
reply).

I have small requests though.

1. I noticed that postfix does not check the right hand side of main.cf. So
if you mistyped something like "permit_mynetworkss" (note the extra "s"),
you're toast. Also, it can also happen that the right hand side config is
correctly typed but the file referred by it does not exist yet. Any tips for
checking postfix confs?

2. How do I delete all mails queued? FAQ only mentioned per mail id. Any
tips.

3. Is it worth investigating who used us as relay? or is it really our
fault?

Thank you all.

-botp

ps: I reinstalled postfix. It was faster than finding the culprit. Does
anyone know of any site that checks for relay interactively? I had to wait
for ORDB for the result... It is the waiting that "kills"... :-)

Hello Team:

I think I am in big trouble.
Can you pls test us if we are an open relay?

Thank you for your help.

-botp

ps: in the meantime, I have disabled the concerned host 202.57.100.24.
btw, How can I delete queue contents? I want to clean up first before I
bring up the 202...

--- Additional information about the preceeding message.

Dear :

You are receiving this automated message because you have been
determined to be responsible for 202.57.100.24; if you are an ISP,
this host may belong to your customer.

The preceeding message was received by us from 202.57.100.24. It could not
be delivered to the specified recipient, and could not be returned
to the given sender. It is probably spam. Possibilities include:

1) 202.57.100.24 is an open SMTP relay.
2) 202.57.100.24 the smarthost for an open SMTP relay.
3) 202.57.100.24 is relaying correctly for a spamming customer.
4) 202.57.100.24 is the spammer's host.
5) 202.57.100.24 has a broken mailing list with bad envelope sender.
6) 202.57.100.24 will not accept bounces, violates RFC-2505.
7) 202.57.100.24 might be infected by an email virus or trojan.
8) 202.57.100.24 is a mail forwarder; let us know if this is the case.

Please check the headers carefully and make your own conclusions.

Current listings: SPAMMY="to remove"

We reserve the right to refuse mail from known open relays, undeliverable
addresses, or domains which refuse bounces. Until then, you may receive
additional notices. You usually will not receive more than one notice per
host in a 24-hr period.

How we determined who to contact: If the hostname could be found (PTR),
and it resolved to 202.57.100.24, it was used to query whois.abuse.net for
the correct complaint address. If there was no PTR, the name in the
SMTP greeting, if available, is used if it resolves back to 202.57.100.24.
Otherwise, the SOA record was used instead of the hostname. If this failed,
mail was sent to postmaster@[202.57.100.24]. If you feel this message has
reached
you in error, let us know and we'll look into it. Also see
http://www.abuse.net.

system, the original bounce messages are reproduced below.
