Sounds like only a temporary solution, though the satisfaction it would give when it works might be worth it.

If they're not doing so already, I'm sure spammers will spread their spamming over tens-of-thousands of hosts so that each host only sees a message coming in every few minutes or so.

    How does SpamsShield compare to SpamAssassin? Is it as hard on server load? Can it(spamshield) be configured on a user per user basis instead of the entire server?

    From Glenn Graham - Contributing author.

    Thank you for your comments regarding my article on SpamShield.

    I agree that in theory, spammers may very well spread their mail over thousands of hosts at a time, thereby defeating our initial goal.

    In practice, we can only hope this would become a tiring and diminishing task.

    Let's keep an eye out for the next version of SpamShield.

    Yours truly,

    Glenn Graham.
