JSpamFilter Manual Symbol Legend

Configuration Options: Basic Server and Domain Configuration
Settings here are made in the jspamfilter.conf file.
ServerName
LocalDomainList
LocalDomainFile

ServerName
ServerName=mail.example.com

The name of your server (used for "Received:" header.) If not specified, no "by" clause will be added to the "Received" header added by JSpamFilter, which may confuse any software that reads Received headers (for example, the SpamCop reporting engine.)

LocalDomainList
LocalDomainList=example.com mail.example.com anotherexample.com

If this option is specified, Open Relay protection is enabled. Incoming mail sent to any domain that is not on the list will be dropped, unless the IP address is "whitelisted" (see below), or the user successfully authenticates to the mail server using the SMTP AUTH command. If there are many entries on this list, more than one LocalDomainList entry can be used in the configuration file (for the administrator's convenience). Separate multiple entries with spaces.

LocalDomainFile
LocalDomainFile=(filename)

[Version 2.1+] The name of the file you want to read local domains from. Two formats are accepted: one domain per line, or "BIND" named.boot DNS configuration file format. (Only "primary" and "secondary" zone records are read, and "in-addr" domains are ignored.) This option cannot be used in conjunction with LocalDomainList.


Please Note!
Very Important: Avoid This Mistake!
Warning: If you do not use LocalDomainList or LocalDomainFile, you will probably turn your mail server into an open relay, which will soon get abused by spammers, and place you into the same blackhole lists you're checking. Remember, unless JSpamFilter is running on a separate machine, mail servers think the connections are coming from one of its own IP addresses, and will usually relay mail without question from those IPs.

You'll want to use these settings anyway to make sure that only the domains for which you want to provide mail service can use your server.
