Block Spam Email Based on Body Text

Postby shakirz1 » Thu Dec 11, 2003 9:27 am

I have Red Hat Linux 7.3 with sendmail 8.11.

I want to block all spam email based on body text like if any text in body of email contains "Banded CD" text then sendmail auto reject that mail.

Block Spam Email Based on Body Text

Postby shakirz1 » Thu Dec 11, 2003 11:40 am

to install SpamAssassin and configure it, I think it is big job.

Is it possible that I create my own rule in sendmail.cf ?

Anybody can help me to create this sort of rule in sendmail.cf ?

there are a lot of anti-spam rule like SMTP relay, Selected Relay, Valid Hostname and so on, but not on body text.

i'll only charge you rs 600/hr.

i think sendmail's .cf stuff only checks headers. you want a milter. i can write a milter, too. same rate.

i am all for a site (or even a forum in lp) for job contracts, even if i don't offer to work on stuff.

if lp doesn't do it, i'm sure my workplace will start up something similar. or heck, even if lp does it...

Yeah, It should read "...Wire the money first, email your ip address and root
password and wait..."

shakirz1: I don't think its part of the MTA (Sendmail) to bother with body text (correct me someone if i'm wrong), thats something you would have to set in your mail client. Like Mozilla's mail client, and set up filters. You might want to check out qmail, it does the same as Sendmail, that is that it serves as a MTA, but its modern and it might have what you are looking for.

i'm ok with being paid later. if they don't pay up, there goes their rep.

sendmail looks at the body text for 8bit mime to qp translation, and some other mime foo. qmail doesn't do that.

really, switching to qmail for this body spam problem is overkill. milter is the way to go; it drops the message during the smtp conversation.
