Hi Eric:

This is the patch that we used with Bill's toaster and it was very effective in limiting the damage from hijacked email accounts.


Let me know what you think

Hi List

Sometimes a user's email credentials get hijacked and before we know it 100,000 spams go out. This doesn't happen very often but when it does it's a mess. Our mailserver gets blocked by major ISP and it takes weeks to get the blocks lifted. So I was thinking - is there any way to rate limit email accounts? For example, limit users to sending no faster than one email every few seconds. There used to be a patch for the old Bill's Qmail Toaster called 'spam throttle' that could do this.

Regards, Jeff
