That old SPAM problem

I’ve just done what I should have done a long time ago – cleaned up the system addresses on our company mail server. Gone are addresses like bin, daemon, adm, lp, mail, mailman, games, and amanda. “Amanda”? That’s our backup software and only ever gets mail from an internal machine. I’ll direct them all to /dev/null eventually, but they’re collecting in /home/amanda/spam.txt for the time being.
Looking at this morning’s 1.5MB spam I counted a huge number of mails to amanda, so shutting that off should alleviate problems somewhat.
Before a certain resident of Co. Galway comments, only one spam got into my inbox this morning! I just hate seeing /home/docaoimh/spam.txt being bigger than /var/spool/mail/docaoimh – perhaps I should subscribe to more mailing lists again! 😉
