No more spam
Yay! I received a _lot_ of spam on my hoysater.net domain and I’ve tried lots of different attack angles against the spam. My mom on her 56k modem struggled when she popped the mail account, not fun to watch the counter reading ‘downloading 3 of 754’ unread mails. I’ve tried server based mail washers, whitelists, blacklists, blacklist services, dictionaries but none of them have solved the problem entirely.
A few days ago I talked with someone who recomended Google Apps, I researched a bit and dived into it. Now I have changed my MX records to Google’s and activated mail hosting. Google’s spamfilter is working very well and now all of my family have 2.8GB, and still counting upwards, mailboxes. The calendar is pretty fun too.
I wish we soon can organize mailservices a bit better than now, too many open relays, bad configured mailservers out there. And those who have proper configured mailservers, well – many of those are spammers…
