Quick and easy way to add GreyListing to your plesk server

Thanks to Atomic Turtle for this very quick and easy to use RPM,  Here is how to install it.

  1. wget http://www.atomicorp.com/channels/atomic/centos/5/x86_64/RPMS/spamdyke-4.0.10-4.el5.art.x86_64.rpm
  2. rpm -Uvh spamdyke-4.0.10-4.el5.art.x86_64.rpm
  3. killall -HUP xinetd

GreyListing makes all the difference to spam levels on a server.  Well worth installing.


Greylisting will not work by default until you create the greylist directories.

http://www.blueoryx.info/linux_administration/spamdyke has instructions on how to do this.

cd /var/qmail/spamdyke/greylist/
for i in `ls -1 /var/qmail/mailnames`; do mkdir $i; done
chown -R qmaild:nofiles /var/qmail/spamdyke
