Re: Spam in forum

And how do protect against humans who write spam paid in low salary countries? I believe that the vast majority of spam posts, are made by humans and not totally automated bots, so this works against human spammers too. I am not saying it's perfect, but as long as they need email and IP to register...

Re: Empty emails

The reason I have decided to finally post about it, is because until yesterday, I thought that the reason was some faulty scripts or custom mail systems/configurations. But now, for the first time I know the origin and I can't look the other way. Also, now that this is on forum, more customers might...

Empty emails

This isn't something new, as I keep informing the admin each time I get an empty email instead of the email I should have received. Emails like that, do not have a body, only headers. What makes them unique is the content of those headers: "From" is always the following: From: trashmail@trashmail.ne...

Re: New protected domain name

I mean, editing the addon's code manually, will allow it to work like I did with cont?

Re: Challenge-Response System: Soft bounce messages disabled

Totally understandable, but I guess there is nothing that can be done to the first email that is sent to the faked FROM sender, asking him to verify, so there is still the danger.
Is there a way to not send the email at all if you can't validate that the FROM address is legit?

Re: Trashmail success and failure stories

Then how about using custom trashmail MX server that you provide ( possibly with different IP than the one used to serve the trashmail.net addresses, to avoid the blacklists), as I have access to DNS records? I don't know if I am allowed to disclose the rival service that I am using, but they do ex...

Re: Trashmail success and failure stories

Yes please try first if PHP allows you a TCP connection to port 25 by this code: <?php $client = stream_socket_client("tcp://smtp.trashmail.net:25", $errno, $errorMessage); if ($client === false) { die("Failed to connect: $errorMessage"); } echo fgets($client); fclose($client); It should return tha...

Unfortunately yes.

Is it possible to pass me a PHP script that can test port 25 connection to your server?

Re: Trashmail success and failure stories

Will that work while on a shared server environment, with no ability to install custom binaries?

Re: Trashmail success and failure stories

The user Z has an excellent solution to this problem. You would like it, and it will work as I'm currently rebuilding the backend. He will post it later this week-end on the forum. Exciting news. Thank you mystery user Z (and of course, thank you Stephan)! Will that address the short-live reply add...
