Resolved: SAV Probe v. Backscatter Issue
- PF documentation is really great these days. I used to refer to the
docs as something akin to Talmudic study. They are now
comprehensible, even to this idiot. THANKS GUYS!
Victor Duchovni is correct. I have eliminated rejecting mail from
What I am doing now is using a regexp virtual alias map with a
catchall for each spam domain. The net effect is that SAV probes and
backscatter are accepted. Only the backscatter gets delivered to the
spam mailbox. This breaks SAV but completely eliminates the
ambiguity. Users are DUNNOd in the RecipChecks and spam traps are OKd.
This gives far fewer clues to spammers.
Ultimately, this led to a complete redesign of the spam parsing
engine ( http://tqmcube.com/parser.php ) and how we were including
data in MySQL.
