Curious if others are seeing this trend too.
Increasingly we are rejecting a lot of mail with just basic sendmail
check_mail "domain does not exist" rule. What is the point of this kind
of thing? Is this a new dumb virus? Why doesn't it make up an aol
address? Is it about spam, or dns, perhaps.
Here's a small sample of the rejected domains:
> tgnemnekyvrd at ip-14.bergon.net
> thc at jobs101_314630.cvc.adm.dcccd.edu
> tjredstart at jewelsplace.net
> tkiac at gtmpze.edu
> tmolar at merseymails.com
> tnjevdfwpp at DJJSZ6C1.nc.rr.com
> tocgpf at toshiba-user.hsd1.fl.comcast.net
They are mostly unique, and seem to be bots.
