    Default suggestion for improving spam controls on zimbra

    hello,
    spam is a very serious topic for many email admins. Spam and viruses are only expected to get WORSE in the coming months/years.

    I'd like to suggest an addition to zimbra that would make controlling spam easier. First of all, greylisting should be a standard component of zimbra. I've implemented this at various sites and it works amazingly well!

    After that, the smtpd_restrictions help out a lot. But this needs to have a whitelist section due to so many email servers on the internet that aren't setup correctly.

    These things are not too hard to setup on a clean Postfix installation. But zimbra does things differently, so I'm not too eager to experiment (or possibly break) the zimbra setup.

    My vote is to implement greylisting (gld is a nice/easy one) and smtpd_restrictions with an easy to use whitelist component.

    Thanks,

    Oskar

    If you want to see greylisting the best way to get it would be to search bugzilla see if anyone has created an enhancement request, if they have vote for it. If they haven't create the bug and vote for it.

    Greylisting has already been covered in the forums - please don't post the same message to multiple times.
