#1: OT procmail/joe job question

Posted on 2008-04-21 15:13:05 by Lisa Casey

Hi,

I know this is a sendmail group but a lot of you use procmail and I need
some help in a hurry if I can get it.

My domain evidently got "joe jobbed" yesterday, and my customers are getting
hundreds of MAILER-DAEMON type messages. Needless to say, they are not
happy.

I figured I could use procmail to temporarily discard MAILER-DAEMON messages
until whatever's going on stops. I don't know much about writing procmail
recipes, but I can google for them. I've tried a variety of things in
/etc/procmailrc, but none are working - MAILER-DAEMON messages are still
being delivered to mail boxes. This is what I've tried:


:0:
* ^FROM_MAILER
/dev/null

:0:
* ^from.*mailer.*daemon
/dev/null

:0:
* ^From:.*MAILER.*DAEMON
/dev/null


:0:
* ^TO_[-a-z0-9_]+\@mydomain
* ^From:.*MAILER-DAEMON
/dev/null

What am I doing wrong, and is there a better way than this to deal with the
back scatter fromn this joe job?

Thanks,

Lisa Casey

Well you could always use /etc/aliases and define:
mailer-daemon: /dev/null

which would send *any* mailer-daemon emails to /dev/null

I figured that out after posting this. Thanks.
