  • Spamhaus + Google DNS

    Hello, This is just to help anybody who falls in the same problem that I had. I had my DNSs pointing to Google and I had Mercury server with spamcop in spam control running fine. I added spamhaus to spam control but it didn't filtered out any spam. As soon as I changed back my DNSs to my ISP's DNSs, spamhaus begun to ...

  • Pegasus looking at old IP address for domain

    I've just moved a domain to a new server, checked that DNS records are correct and used a DNS propogation checker to confirm that all records are in place and everything is resolving where it should. I can access my mail through webmail just fine, but when checking in Pegasus it's still looking for the old server IP. Is there a way to force ...

  • Specifying DNS Servers for MercuryS

    Other than the Windows networking properties, Is there any way to specify the DNS servers that MercuryS uses, in particular for checking the RBLs listed in the Spam Control?  I have three DNS servers listed in the Windows networking properties, and the third one has problems with RBLs, such that MercuryS times out for any good RBL ...

  • Re: Socket read timeout

    Thanks, Thomas. I do not think it is a firewall or DNS problem as MS-Office Outlook 2003 is able to connect to the account from the same machine. I can also ping all forms of the address, including the real POP3 server addresses you quote above. Cheers!

  • Re: Phishing and PayPal's success with digital signatures

    I think it's worth mentioning that Mercury doesn't include the reverse-DNS of the connecting host in the Received: lines it generates, only the client greeting.  That's often forged, so depending upon it is inadvisable, although it might work (as might just checking for the presence or absence of DKIM-Signature: lines on mails you know ought ...

  • Re: MercuryE SMTP Client Not Using Host Table for MX Records

    Peter Strömblad:...this is dependent on what dns call is being used from mercury - you can programmatically call dns like: DNS_QUERY_NO_HOSTS_FILE - but I don't know which windows call David uses... Hopefully if it is coded to not use the hosts file then it can easily be changed to use the hosts file. Peter Strömblad:There are also angry ...

  • MercuryE SMTP Client Not Using Host Table for MX Records

    It appears that the MecuryE SMTP Client bypasses the local host table when resolving the IP address for MX records.  It is only using the IP address from a DNS lookup of the URL obtained from the MX records. I have two different email servers on my internal network, Mercury and another one.  When a user on a domain on the other ...

  • Re: Worth reading and watching - "technology shakedown" about spam

    There is absolutely no necessity to get complicated. The more complicated the solution, the more difficult it is to implement. And few of the ''anti-spam technologies'' tackle the problem where it occurs, which is actually where it must be tackled. Once it gets past the SMTP layer, i.e. at the mail clients, all the ''anti-spam technologies'' are ...

  • Re: What is this? DNS, domain, what?

    Start by clearing your resolver-cache. (enter the dns-mmc, and clear the server cache). Then retry nslookup - if the answer is the same, turn on full logging of your dns-server - so that you can trace what is going on with your specific query. If your server relays the dns query off-host, and the answer is wrong, and you have set up a special ...
