the smtp auth patch you use should be putting a header in the email saying who
sent it.. check for that header, and shut the guy off.
This is the first thing that I did try. My server was set 2 years ago and vpopmail version is 5.3.20. I use the toaster guide from Bill Shup and his large patch. I never get a problem like that. The version of smtp-auth patch does not put the information into the headers. The message bellow is what the spammer sends out. The IP listed always change. I test my server right now and it isn't an open relay. So when I identify the vpopmail user that was used to do that I can take the properly action, but how?
