 What are you using for Domino SPAM fighting?

Tomas NielsenPost date: 2007-11-03 14:18

I guess all have issues with spam. I have had some success with using DNS blacklist filters. It takes out about 80% of the spam (only judging by the massive domino logging it produces, I have not counted them) but some still slips by.

I am using the following blacklists at the moment:

If you have any better ones feel free to share. My settings are listed in the picture below. 

Also if you have any experience with other filters I would like to know about it.

I use for DNS Blacklist Sites, seems to work pretty good. Not sure a % in terms of how much gets through still but may be beneficial to you.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the tip Bryan. I will add it and see if it helps.
Do you have a feeling if they are agressive in their filtering or more moderate?

This was taken from their website .

"The SCBL is aggressive and often errs on the side of blocking mail"

I am trying out SpamSentinels free Back Scatter protection now. I will see how it works out.

I was getting really annoyed with all the spam I get lately. Unfortunately my e-mail address is kind of public since my domains are registered to me so all the spammers can pick it up.

So I did some more research and stumbled upon the kSpam project over at

The first release was 5 years ago so I am amazed I have not heard about it before. It is a completely free spam solution and it learns from your spam and your good e-mails using a Bayesian algorithm to calculate probabilities that e-mail is spam.

The documentation is quite old and says nothing of Domino 8 although on the openntf pages it states to support Domino 8 (and it seems to do).

I went ahead and tested it last night and although I have not enough spam to get the algorithm working at its best it has already found 9 spam mails that never reached my inbox.

If you want to use the Bayesian filter (there is a rule based filter also but I do not use that) you must add the line bload to your ServerTasks line in notes.ini. That one was a bit tricky to figure from the doc's.

Judging from 5 hours of usage I can recommend this one.
