    Angry How to track spoofer


    I have someone that keeps trying to use my domain extention to send mail.
    It keeps coming up in my log files with various names attached to my domain. I don't mean denied relaying. My actual domain, ie Spoofer@mydomain.com, is being used.

    How do I :
    A) Stop him
    B) Track him
    C)keep them from coming back
    D) (Optional) Boot his A$$

    thanks

    Dissable mail relaying and make sure you have no open proxy servers in your network. check ordb.org and have them test your server. also dissable IMAP and POP3 if not using them.

    To test mail relaying telnet to your server on port 25 and do the following


    helo
    mail from:userid@internetdomain.com
    rcpt to:userid@internetdomain.com
    data
    This is a test.

    use a hotmail account and see if you recieve the mail or if you got
    a deny response.
