I have a few lines in my header_checks, but they never hit
anything. I'm just lazy about cleaning them out as long as
they don't cause false positives. My mail volume is low
enough that a few useless header_checks don't bother anything.
If your old lines don't do any good, remove them (or ignore
them and wait for them to cause problems later).
Here's some commonly used tools; you decide for yourself if
these are appropriate for your environment:
- only accept mail for valid recipients. This is a requirement
these days. Many ways to do this depending on your
- zen.spamhaus.org RBL; safe and very effective. If your org
is too big for the free service, well worth the small annual fee.
- clamav with the add-on Sanesecurity anti-spam checks.
- run all this under amavisd-new pre-queue as a
smtpd_proxy_filter (any pre-queue filter can limit peak
throughput -- make sure you have enough horsepower or add MX
boxes if you want to filter pre-queue).
