I am running my own small mail-server, i.e. I use my desktop pc for
sending and receiving my private mails.
That worked quite nicely the last years. From time to time I tested my
mail-server via abuse.net's mail-relay tester. - Never got any
Now suddenly I receive one:
This is a test of third-party mail relay, generated via the
Network Abuse Clearinghouse at http://www.abuse.net.
Target host = 220.127.116.11 pukruppa.net
Test performed by <ulrich at pukruppa.net> from 18.104.22.168
A well-configured mail server should NOT relay third-party
Otherwise, the server is subject to abuse by vandals and
and probable blacklisting by recipients of the unwanted
Of course I had some fun trying to read sendmail's documentation. But I
guess I need some help with this.
I am running FreeBSD -STABLE 8.0 amd64 .
I don't think I ever played around with sendmail's configuration. I just
use it as came out of the box.
