    Is there any way of plugging up the hole that teh spam seems to be coming from? This is getting downright annoying....

    Yup, I noticed it and have (with Arjan's encouragement) been deleting between 1-3 posts (on average) daily.

    It appears the spam is coming through the e-mail adress used by the site to gain posts from the birthright-L list. Would it be possible to change the adress to a new one in an attempt to stem the flood?

    Cheers,

    I am also aware of it an also deleting what i see, you dont want to see my personal BRnet email accoutn arjan(A)br.net

    that one is receiving 250+ spam each day.

    I am configuring TMDA which is installed on the mail server, that can be configured to let only pass emails from a whitelist.

    i will also try to adjust the mailimport script tomorrow.

    so on very short notice it WILL be solved

    Year, the Spammer is a bad guy&#33; But hey&#33; It can&#39;t be female

    I for example try to get rid from all those "please call me: now&#33;" and "hot girls are waiting just for you" rubbish... :unsure:
