Unfortunately spamhole’s day is mostly behind us though I wish I would have been familiar with it earlier. The spamhole application developers took the approach of developing spamhole for other like minded individuals to assist in battling the SPAM issues on the Internet by creating fake open mail relays as possible and thus tricking spammers into sending their SPAM into blackholes or honeypots. It would have been extremely satisfying to watch SPAM enter a spamhole fake open relay I had created and be redirected to nothing. The spamhole application is not working as of Backtrack 5 R3 and is explained in more detail below.
I discovered something really cool tonight to help organize my default Gmail account. You can use an unlimited number of aliases which in return will allow you to easily filter or organize incoming email based on numerous factors. By default Gmail will deliver any mail with your email@example.com to your Gmail inbox. This not only works with @gmail.com email addresses but it will also work with any domains you have hosted via Google apps.
It is easy to use your default WordPress admin interface to block comments from a certain domain. You can either have these comments require moderation or you can have the comments immediately marked as spam. My suggestion would be to initially have the comments require moderation just to make sure you are not also catching legit comments.
To block comments based on a certain domain follow the steps below.
After switching your ISP(Internet Service Provider) your email accounts seem to no longer be functioning. Typically this is caused by the outgoing (SMTP) mail server not being accepted from the new Internet providers network. This is normal and one of the main tools that ISP’s use to fight Spam e-mails. They do not allow people not on their network to send email using there email servers. Follow the steps below to change your outbound mail server to your new provider so you can still use the email account from your old Internet provider.
One bit of information you will need before you begin is the SMTP server of your new provider. You can either look this up on the Internet or you can call your new providers technical support and they should be able to provide it to you.
