Subject Re: [users@httpd] How to prevent email sent from the server
Date Fri, 11 Jun 2010 14:40:39 GMT
This isn't an Apache issue, but do you have valid SPF records for the
mail server?

These are simple text records included in your domain name listing that
define which IP addresses are allowed to send mail for your domain.
Don't forget to set up deny SPF records for all servers that are NOT
allowed to send mail for your domain but have MX records for it.

Costs nothing, and most incoming SMTP servers do check the SPF records.

Good luck!
