Hello List,


My setup MS e-mail gatway relaying for exchange 2000.Upgrading to Xchange 
2000 is in the works still as we have 1000's of users. My outbound Q on the 
mailscanner box is 6k with tonnes of NDRs,delaying legitimate e-mail. This 
started a week ago MS doing its job perfectly but still .....there should 
be a way to stop this attack.

Accepting e-mail only for legit exchange users on the mailscanner gateway 
is also not helpful for this kind of attack.

Running Sendmail and MS on Linux

Any tips n tricks are appreciated.

Thanks much,
Venkata Achanta
