    Brian, Re your EDIT 2 (cross posting) Yes that will be a problem, so probably best not to if any of your road warriors have dynamic IP's J.

  • Re: MercuryS: Can I block IP address in EHLO?

    Hi Brian, As I said above, if you put&nbsp; in the CONNECTION CONTROL tab of MercuryS, and set to ALLOW, then check the EXEMPT from TRANSACTION FILTERING box that IP will not be subject to filtering. You can add your whole local subnet if desired in the same way. John.

  • Re: MercuryS: Can I block IP address in EHLO?

    Hi Brian, I hope the filter is working for you! I think transaction filtering is great. it has little overhead on the server and allows Mercury to drop any matching connections without having to receive the body of the email. A couple of filters will blitz a huge amount of junk. I use the following two filters:- H, ''*.*'', RSN, ''554 Bad ...

  • Re: MercuryS: Can I block IP address in EHLO?

    Hi Brian, You can do that with Transaction Filtering with a line like this:- H, ''**'', BS, ''554 Bad HELO/EHLO format - connection dropped.'' &nbsp; John. EDIT:- The file you want is TRANSFLT.MER which is in the Mercury root folder, and don't forget to enable transaction level expression filtering in the COMPLIANCE tab ...

  • Reverse DNS check

    Morning all, Is there any way to perform a RDNS check in MercuryS. What I want to do is check the HELO/EHLO text against RDNS and if they don't match, reject the connection since most email servers provide a FQDN as the HELO/EHLO command. i.e This IP has no RDNS info:- Connection from 20190331 103329 5c59bad3 EHLO dua.iix.mxT ...

  • Re: Mercury E Connection Error

    GordonM:Thank you for the clarification. The fact that John from the UK was able to connect to Rogers' SMTP service presumably means that his ISP is not blocking port 25 connections from ''foreign'' sources. This is, perhaps, surprising these days. Gordon&nbsp; &nbsp; Indeed - I'm with Zen Internet, and they do not block or otherwise ...

  • Re: Mercury E Connection Error

    Hi Gordon, 10060 is a socket timeout error, so it looks like you're getting no response back from the remote server. So the next question is do you have any antivirus software running that may be blocking port 25? Or perhaps the router's firewall is preventing port 25 access to the wider internet. John.

  • Re: Mercury E Connection Error

    Hi Gordon, The first thing I would do is to go back to basics and check you can connect to this email server. Try opening a telnet session on port 25 from your email server machine. I just tried this from the UK and everything seems to be OK for me.Telnet Open 25 220 ESMTP readyIf you don't get the 220 ...

  • Re: simple spam transaction filter rule - how should I code it?

    Hello Jerry, Transaction filtering supports the ''M'' command which checks the Mail From field of the header. I use commands like this to filter unwanted ''From'' domains M, ''**'', BS, ''554 Sender MAGIX.NET is sending unsolicited email - connection dropped.'' For instance, Hope this helps John.
