SMTP Port Blocking: Success or Failure?
We are considering filtering outbound SMTP traffic from our ISP customers, except from our own mail servers, to help reduce the amount of spam originating from our network. How successful/unsucessful has implementing outbound SMTP filtering done in stopping or slowing down spam from your network? Also, if outbound SMTP filtering has not worked for you, are there any other things that you have implemented that have helped with spam traffic?
