That's a good idea, but you have to realize, I have not had any spam in 9
months since implimenting my multi-layer approach... Nada... of course, I
am only running four domains, and not professionally an ISP. Why re-invent
the wheel when it ain't broken?

Yes, same for me on my backup server.

If I start having trouble with spam, I will impliment this.. you sold me..
good idea on putting spamd on another machine, in fact, I already have it
on my main machine... just have to turn it on. I am running the new SuSE
8.2, and it is installed.  I suppose one would just put the full path and
internal IP address for the spamd machine, from the spamc, without
re-routing SMTP to the spamd machine. I will check this out..
