Projects / fakehermes


fakehermes is a small, lightweight fake SMTP server. It's useful as a way to avoid spam by configuring your domains to point their secondary SMTP server to a fakehermes server. It will log not only the email messages involved, but also how they are trying to send email and whether they should be considered spam or not. This information can be used to "profile" the spammers that send you spam and can allow you to configure or tune other spam filters. It supports SPF and RBL checking.
