Hi Jayesh,

I suppose these emails are not sent by your mail server. You must configure 
your router's firewall to prevent sending emails from stations in the LAN to 
Internet. If this is a Linux router you must type as root

iptables -I FORWARD -p tcp --dport 25 -j DROP

You may need to specify network ( -s ) or interfaces ( -i 
eth0 -o eth1 ) in the rule above.

Subject: Outbound spam protection , guidance require.

Hi ,

My server handling outgoing traffic of 2 lakhs = 200,000 (max) emails per 
day .

Some time due to virus infection or password hacking , spammers are sending 
many thousand of email within short time. Which at the end causing to 
blacklist my outgoing IP spool. I am using rate limiting ,strong password 
etc ... but still due to such issues business is getting disturb.

Want to is there any paid / opensource spam database available which will 
scan the outgoing email traffic ( not incoming ) from LAN / Wan and that can 
be integrate within MailScanner + Spamassassin or only with postfix MTA ? 
Which can detect and block the bulk / spam emails in realtime and have Low 
false positive rate .

What is best practice others are following for such scenario ?
