As of 2014-07-14, Komuves Consulting has ceased running its own email service (after doing so for 20 years!). Dealing with spam effectively for a very small number of users like this just became too large of a time sink. This page just remains for historical reference.Komuves Consulting has a policy of not allowing any unsolicited bulk email (spam) of any sort to be sent to or sent by any of its users. Filtering of incoming spam email happens at the SMTP connection level using Sendmail, which is being run here with all of its built-in anti-spam provisions. I make use of several blackhole facilities, including my own banned list. If a banned site tries to send email to any of my users, they will receive a descriptive error while connecting to the SMTP port, which will refuse to accept the email. If spam is received by a user, they can simply bounce or forward the message with full headers intact to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here is a publically-viewable log of spammer rejection statistics for this server, which is automatically updated daily.
Whenever an email address, domain, or IP block is placed onto our list of banned sites, the site administrators of the banned site are notified of the action, and given a chance to appeal. If they make a good faith effort to improve, and terminate the offending users' accounts, the ban will be lifted.
Our banned list may be freely used by anyone who wants it. Here is a sample script that can be used to grab the latest copy of our banned list. If you set it up as a cron job, please do not download it any more than once per day, as that would be pointless. If you do use it, please send email letting me know your domain name so that it can be added to the participating domain list. The participating domains that currently filter their email based on the list above are: dungeoneer.com, food.net, kom.com, landscapearchive.com, martineschocolates.com, poolsrv.com, and thoughtrights.com.
