Are you rejecting emails because they actually come from
msn/hotmail/yahoomail servers or because they have
@hotmail/yahoomail/msn "from" addresses but don't actually originate
from the relevent networks?

SPAM that never made it.......
 
My sendmail-based mail server has been doing a great job of preventing known
spammers from even connecting to me.

With Xmas approaching, the rate of spam seems to have majorly escalated in
the past 2 weeks.

Here are just some of the SPAM attempts that were blocked yesterday....while
5 actual spams did get through. They won't make it today if they try
again.

The latter.

Most of this mail is from zombie clients run by idiots who don't even know
they have been hacked. I prefer not to block thier IPs as the domain names
used are more of less constant: hotmail / yahoo / aol / excite / bigfoot.

I counted for several weeks. I received hundreds of spam from the sourcs
above...and the ONLY legit Hotmail and yahoo mail was from my siblings.
They now send e-mail to a different address, set up only for their use and
not seen anywhere else by anyone. I never get spam there.

So blocking these gains me a lot and costs me nothing. I read my logs
daily. If there is anything there that looks like someone I want to hear
from, I will send them a note asking them if they tried to contact me and
telling them how they can.

That happens *very* rarely. Easily 99.99% (literally 9999 out of 10,000) of
this stuff is pure spam. I've caught perhaps 5 genuine e-mails being
bounced in 18 months.....out of 50-100 / *day*.

Actually I was wondering why you posted all of that... it was kinda from
left field.

You never know who is interested in what. So I toss it out there and see
what happens. Maybe nothing. In this case, Bruce Simpson asked a pertinent
question....so I deem it to have been worth it so far.

No doubt it would be a new experience for many people.
I only posted a small part of the maillog. Maybe 20 entries.

If they weren't connecting to you, your "sendmail-based mail server"
wouldn't be logging them.

Are you implying you're reducing your internet traffic? - or just
avoiding reading the chit?

It logs the connection attempts....and consequent rejections. I do not
receive the mail they tried to send.

Both. They can't send me the e-mail they wanted to send...and I therefore
don't have to read it, either.

As you mention, it also reduces the amount of data traffic to me. I don't
feel like paying for mail I don't want.
