Random thoughts on technology.
Anti-Virus, Anti-Spam with Sendmail and Mailscanner
An article I wrote for the now-defunct Kill-HUP.com in June
of 2003. I was looking for a (largely) free and open solution to the common
problem of stopping viruses and junk mail at the server level and the
Sendmail/Mailscanner solution was a perfect fit.
To date, this piece has been the site's most popular article, drawing in over
four thousand page hits. Perhaps that's a small hint that I need to do more
articles like this ;)
I originally wrote a piece on what SSL/TLS was and how it worked to explain
why I used it on Sorrentino.net. It
wasn't long before search engines picked it up and started referring people to
my little site-specific blurb. I've since re-worked the piece to be a bit more
comprehensive and non-site specific while still maintaining a high-level view
devoid of as much techno-babble as possible.
