I'm using good old fashioned sendmail as my mta.... It has a feature called
"greet_pause" "Dunnno if qmail or postfix has this feature, but what this does
is delay sending banners out for a specified amount of time (usually
configured for between 1 -5 seconds). If a spammer / slammer starts sending
before the acknowledgement from sendmail, the connection is summarily dropped.
Hope this helps all who have run into the slamming phenomenon.
