I just notify postmaster, and kill the machine remotely or remove it from the
network until I can fix it. A few years ago I had someone bring in their
personal laptop and connect it to the network without permission. It had
sasser or something like it, and brought that network segment to its knees
until I found it and pulled the plug. I never thought one machine could flood
that much traffic!
MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
