Anyone try to re-use a Barracuda Spam Filter for something else, like Untangle?

Question: Anyone try to re-use a Barracuda Spam Filter for something else, like Untangle?

Just curious if anyone has done this or not. I've got a client that was sold a Barracuda Spam Firewall 200 a few years ago. They only have seven email addresses so we moved them to Postini rather than spend a crap ton on maintenance for the Barracuda. So, I'm looking at this thing and thinking this would make a good web filter or something for them. . . . . get some use out of it rather than let it sit there on a shelf for five years before it gets thrown out. . . .

Preferred Solution: Anyone try to re-use a Barracuda Spam Filter for something else, like Untangle?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Got the hardware specs?
Untangle wants x86 architecture (can't wait to see down the road as their 64-bit one just hit BETA)

I've seen posts about people getting PFSense installed on WatchGuard appliance hardware.

We have a group of internal users that are prevented from emailing the outside world. IE: they are only allowed to send email to users on our domain. Suddenly I'm getting requests from management to allow them to email out to a list of members at a another domain across the internet. We currently add each user to a blocked sender list when we create their domain account.

Would it work to add the 1 domain to allowed domain recipients list, and have those users be able to email to it without compromising the blacklist that prevents them from sending to the rest of the internet?

If not, is there another relatively simple way to setup the email filters to accomplish my goal?
 

Answer:Barracuda Spam Filter White\Black lists

There is a way you can do it in exchange using send connectors I believe. I forget the exact details but I will try to remember how to do it. It basically involves creating rules that allow users to send to specific addresses and anything else gets NDR'd. Trying to remember if this was for only internal mail or external as well.

ok, so i want to get untangle in place, but i want to keep things as simple as possible.

we're not overly fussed about blocking anything other than porn and proxy sites. we're quite happy for people to use the internet for personal use before work, during lunch, and after work.

in the future, if we find the system being abused, we will look to do time based rules. but, for the time being we really want to just understand who is doing what and when they are doing it.

in the 'default' configuration it seems that ad connector + web filter + reports simply blocks porn and proxy sites (win!), and in terms of reporting it seems that we are simply provided with a list of users, the urls visited, and the number of hits. detailed logging (i.e. user/url/date/time stamping) only seems to exist for websites that are explicitly blocked.

is there a way, in the reports, to get it to ouput the detailed logging for every website visited? if there is not, then under 'block lists > urls' it looks like there is an option to input a url, and just to log it whilst not blocking it. would this then mean that if that url was visited the detailed logging would occur?

alternatively, what other approaches could i take to this?

many thanks.
 

Answer:little help with untangle web filter and reporting...

There should be a "detailed reports" option under either the WebFilter rack, or the Reports rack... That should display additional information.

hi there,

so i want to try and get untangle out there with a customer. at the moment they just have a need to monitor internet browsing, so i want to keep things as simple as possible.

i've got a vmware environment that i'm playing around with a) so i can learn the package and b) so i can do a demo for them sometime next week. i've got myself an sbs 2003 server setup with a couple of workstations and i've got untangle installed and gone through the initial setup wizard. internet access etc is currently working through untangle.

i've had a browse of the wiki and the adding the reports functionality, setting up the ad connector, and setting up the logon script through group policy all looks like a piece of cake. i've come to a bit of a stumbling block though, and that is the creation of virtual racks.

in order to keep things as straightforward as possible i want there to be one set of filteirng for all users. do i need to have a virtual rack to acomplish this? or if i simply add web filtering to the default rack will the ad connector still work so that the reports are meaningful instead of just a bunch of ip addresses?

would really love to hear how you guys are setting up your boxes.

many thanks.
 

Answer:untangle + web filter + ad connector + reports...need to k.i.s.s...

Same rules for all users..just fire it up in the default rack.

Currently we have no filtering on our guest access so anybody could be doing anything once we give them the we key to the wireless. I have convinced the boss man to allow me to try untangle for web filter, but because it's on it's own vlan segmented away from the regular network we would have to either walk to the datacenter and use the kvm to manage it or move over to that vlan.

What I want to know is this. How can I setup a box with 3 nics that will allow for data / dhcp / web filter to be passed through the 2 main nics (WAN / LAN) and manage the untangle box from the 3 interface (which would reside on my regular lan)?

We have a barracuda networks spam firewall. When checking the message logs today, I noticed that hundreds of messages were being allowed that weren't to email addresses on our network.

The subject contain a bunch of asian characters. The have been continuing all morning and I can't figure how to stop or what it is affecting besides the size of the message log.

Answer:barracuda spam firewall hardware question

I'm not sure on the specs of the Barracuda box that the company I work for uses, but I do know that it is a Barracuda 600 series, running firmware revision 3.1.09. The box that we use generally has 1,000,000+ emails per **DAY** run through it, and very rarely gets backed up.

In fact, the only time I know it got backed up regularly was when a goofy firmware revision was installed that caused some chaos.

Some numbers for you. On average, our Barracuda box filters out nearly 12 messages per second. On our average day where around 1,000,000 messages go through, only about 60,000 make it to customer's inboxes, and it pulls out right around 2,000 viruses, generally about 3,000 messages make it through tagged as spam, and the rest are either blocked or are quarantined within Barracuda.

Hope this helps you a bit.

Greetings,

We have an in-house Microsoft Exchange 2013 server and Barracuda SPAM & Virus Firewall appliance. Normally, I have been reporting SPAM to SpamCop and adding the domain or full e-mail address (depending on circumstances from where e-mail originated) into the domain blacklist. I have recently stopped adding things to the blacklist after checking out the 'Help' link on the same webpage in the Barracuda appliance. There it says that Barracuda strongly advises against using the blacklist with the reason that it will negatively impact the performance of the appliance the larger the list grows.

So as a result of that, I have only been reporting to SpamCop and Barracuda Central; no more blocking. Then, today, one of my co-workers e-mailed me an article "Why SpamCop is Harmful" (https://help.riseup.net/en/email/scams/spam/spamcop). Now my dilemma is this: what am I suppose to do then?! Tell the user to deal with it (in a nice, professional, customer service-friendly, respectful way) and report to Barracuda Central and that's it??

Question: Which Spam Filter?

I am now totally fed up with all the crap that arrives daily in my inbox. I get at least 50 emails a day to my home account and most, if not all of them, are spam.

Although it is quite cathartic deleting email after email, the theraputic effects have become less of a novelty.

Honestly, whether "Molly likes it huge" or not, at my age I do not need to be "rock hard for hours".

Aslo, I have better things to do with my money than buy a Rolex, real or not.

So, I need a competant anti-Spam program and I'm considering investing in Spam Arrest.

Does anyone know if it's any good or would you reccommend something else?
 

Answer:Which Spam Filter?

First, I would see if your ISP (your internet provider) offers free software for filtering spam. Many do, and often they offer pretty good products. If it doesn't offer any, check out this listing/review of free spam filters:
http://email.about.com/od/windowsspamfightingtools/tp/free_spam.htm
To some degree, it depends on what email program you use - Outlook, Outlook Express, Thunderbird, etc.

For filtering, I know of a freeware application called iProtectYou .

The spam filtering can probably be adjusted in the spam filter application. For me, I like the filter found in Pegasus e-mail client. It is much safer than Outlook, a lot more flexible, and is freeware. Also, it is a bit more complicated to use than OE.

Is there any spam-filter software for web based emails like yahoo or hotmail?
 

Answer:Spam Filter

Web base e-mails like Yahoo and MyWay have there own spam filters. Any SPAM you receive, you can identify it as SPAM and it will be blocked after that.

MailWasher can block SPAM for OE or Hotmail accounts. There is a version you can buy, but I've been using the free version for a couple of years with OE. You can get either version here:

Answer:Spam Filter

depends on how much you want to pay.

most spam filters work on a Bayesian filtering system, meaning that the software "learns" what is spam and what is not spam by attributes of the e-mails. There'll be a time when you'l have to manually tell it what is spam and what's not, and there'll be false positives and false negatives, but they'll go down (quickly) after a few days of use.
I haven't used these products personally, but here's a few reputable and good products (did research on them). http://spamassassin.apache.org/ Spam-Assassin

I've been using ThunderBird since the beginning of time and have loved the program. I do have an issue that has popped up that maybe you guys can help me out with. Ok, lets get to the issue.

Just recently I formatted my PC but wanted to keep my old mail. I had read that you can save the Mail folder located at :

C:\Documents and Settings\User\Application Data\Thunderbird\Profiles\

This will save all your old mail / Filter Setting / Subfolders / Ect. After you install Thunderbird you can just overwrite the default mail folder and replace it with the Mail Folder you save. Everything works fine and all my mail, Filters & Sub-Folders are just as they were before I formatted the PC.

The Problem:
It seems now everytime I get Spam, it moves it to the Junk folder just as I configured it to but for some reason it marks it as read during the move. Before it would be labeled as Unread after the move to the junk folder. From what I have heard some Spam is intelligent and can send a " I've been open " back to the sender via an HTML Link. I'm not sure if automatically marking it as read will do this. I never open spam, I just hit the Junk Button at the top and send it to my Junk Folder. Any ideas how to switch it back to it not showing as read.
I'm using ThunderBird ver. 1.5.0.2

Hey guys,

As the network specialist/administrator here at my credit union, I have the responsibility of researching out the best corporate spam filter as we have been receiving increased complaints of users receiving spam. Several of us here use SpamBayes spam filter, but that is only client-side filtering. Instead of setting this up on every single computer we have (70+ right now, plus we are opening up a branch in the spring which will add about another 20, with other branches in the planning stages), I thought it best to go with a corporate spam filter that resides on our Exchange 2000 server, running on a Windows 2000 Server machine.

Of course, when I want to research something like that, one of the first things I think about is the [H]ardForum. I am assuming that some of you guys have experience with this, so I'm gonna ask for your opinions. What have you guys used for corporate spam filtering, how much does it cost, how does it perform, and why is it the best in your opinion?

Thanks in advance for your help...it is much appreciated!

Sign into Google Mail and then click on 'Help' at the top right.Then under 'Common Mail Tasks and Features' click on 'Avoiding Spam'.There are now several options which should help you.

I have been using Thunderbird for well over a year now and in general like it very much.

The problem I have is the spam filtering. It is only doing a so-so job.

I am not having any false positives but the adaptive filtering does not seem to detect 60% of the junk.

For example, I have been constantly marking as junk "Watch Replica Spam", but I keep getting five or more of this type of mail every day. If I could just filter out the word "replica", I could eliminate most junk of this type.

In addition much of the Vallium, Cialis and other unwanted "pharmaceutical" mail is not being filtered (although about half of it is being filtered).

To sum it all up, I am still getting much mail that is almost identical to mail I have previously marked as junk.

I believe I have set the Junk Mail control settings and adaptive filter properly. Is their anything else I can do?
 

Answer:Thunderbird Spam Filter

Do you ‘create filter from message’ when you get these Replica emails? You probably know this already, but here’s the info’ just in case: select the message [don’t open it] and click on Message on the menu bar, click on ‘Create filter from message’ and enter the word replica or whatever you want – you can make two or more separate filters for the same message, to catch everything this pest sends you – then tell it where to put the message and mark it as Junk. That should send it straight to Junk or Trash, according to where you directed it when you set up T’bird.

I'd like a spam filter that works with AOL version 7 ( preferably UK version). I don't know how that differs from the USA version but I liked it better than the Australian version 7 so I installed UK, rather than continue with the OZ version.

The link below is a comprehensive review of 15 spam fighters that work on various ISP's and Operating systems. Only 2 work with AOL.

http://www.spamfilterreview.com/?engine=kanoodle!881&keyword=spam+stopper

The reviews may be of interest to MG users.

I had previously bought and tried MailWasher Pro (not reviewed here), but could not get it configured to work properly with AOL v7 UK despite many emails to and from MWP and much assistance from them. I bought it on the proviso that it worked. It didn't, they refunded my money, so no complaints there.

So, after all this, I am after a MG user that uses AOL and have found a program effective against spam. If it sends an "invalid address---not found" message back to the spammer so much the better. This was the prime reason I tried MWP.

If you have not had first hand experience with AOL please do not bother to reply as AOL is a special beast (not POP3, as I understand it).

Thanks, AOL users. Baz

Does not sound very good to me because even if it knows the email is spam it just moves it to your spam folder.
That means you had to download the spam still.

Better of with MailWasher so you can filter out the email at the server and bounce, delete the spam there so you only download good email so then your have no need of a spam folder because you never download any spam.

My email account is with a local ISP, ie. not one of the majors
like gmail or hotmail. I use Thunderbird on Linux as my email
client. The ISP uses Postini for email security.

I am being flooded by spam emails, which I suspect have the
same source. All are from hotmail addresses, with the sender
name a somewhat garbled combination of letters. The "to" address
does not appear to be my own, but I receive the emails anyway.
Since neither the "from" or "to" addresses are constant, I have
been unable to filter them out in either Postini or in Thunderbird.

I'm more than a novice but less than an expert, and I think I
understand that the sender address can be spoofed, tho I'm unclear
on how my own address can be spoofed such that I receive emails
that do not appear to be addressed to me.

Certainly my basic question is how can this happen and how can
I put a stop to it. Beyond that, what I'd really appreciate is a
pointer to some article, website, etc that would help me understand
the mechanics of this type of spamming, and the methods or options
to filter it out.

First off, it's it says it's newsletters that you are subscribed to, at the bottom of each email there should be a unsubscribe link. Yes. I know you didn't subscribe to any of these probably, but your email gets signed up one way or another.

A solution:

Use 2+ emails. 1 as your primary email for friends, family, or business. The others for signing up with websites and registrations.

I actually use gMail to process my spam.

A free gmail account has the ability to check and collect emails from a number of other POP3 based email servers and then organise and present them for reading, Gmail works with POP3 or IMAP (recommended for anyone who wishes to check from more than one device, and has Broadband Internet access).

Gmail's default spam filters are IMO at least as good as the specialist programs on sale and it also allows you simply add to the filters for your specific needs, (just click the mark as spam button, for anything that does not end up in the spam bin that you feel is spam).

Spam is automatically deleted from the spam bin after thirty days but I tend to check every few days just in-case anything has been incorrectly classed as spam (extremely rare in my experience)

You can also create rules to control anything that, although is not specifically spam, you wish to clear from your inbox but save to read later, (I use it to save away my regular informational emails that I have subscribed to

This is probably a thread suited for both this subforum and Webmastering/programming.

We use a custom webapp for online training that has a feedback page built-in, all written in PHP. Whenever an email is made from the site the app uses the user's email address as the From address in the email header and sends it to our organization's email server. However, none of the emails come through. After a few months of back and forth with our Network Management Office, I realize the problem. Since the email is given a From of, say, [email protected], and comes from a private server on a static IP (no domain name), our local email server can't verify the domain to the sender and trashes it as spam. Our techs refuse to white list this, so I've been forced to BCC all the email to my personal account, and manually forward it in.

The server runs Red Hat Linux and sendmail. I'm not very comfortable with sendmail, and don't even know where to start. Basically, I need it to send emails that can legitimately enter our network. I tried setting From: to [email protected]<ip> and that didn't work. The email came through as "Apache <[email protected][hostname].local>".

There are critical emails, and I'm breaking a few regs by having my personal account in the mix, so I'm trying to find a good solution.

I need your help to tackle a corrupt Council and the Microsoft Spam filter is the key to this.

Long story short. My Email address was blocked to Councillors, complaints departments and every department at a UK Council. This happened after I started contacting departments to object to a council application. I only found out because an employee told me they had stopped receiving Emails from that address. I also never received any acknowledgments from the Council that my Email address had been blocked.

Anyway I made a complaint and the council stated that the Microsoft Spam filter had blocked my email address and put my emails into quarantine and then deleted them 14 days later because I used prohibited words.

Months pass by and now I'm informed that the Council has contacted Microsoft to find out how my Email Address became blocked.
