SMPT and spam which case happened ?
Hi all ..
i have a dout and i want to make sure ..
SMTP is used to transfer mail between servers !
so when i want my system to function as a mail server i have to configure the SMTP .. okay ..if not cofnfigured well some hackers ( remote machine) send spam using my server ! Also the firewall must allow incoming mail .
the above i think is right ! if somethign wrong tell me to update my info :)
when i need to send email to a server .. say when i'm using mail client application such Mozilla mail or Evolution .. i need to configure the SMTP too , right ? but Firewall will not stop it . okay .. say the firewall is setted up .. no SMTP allowed ..im using mail client .. configured the SMTP .. Do i have to pay attention to configuring as the above situation ( Mail server ) ? in other words "Can remote machines send spam using my system ? "
i think the answer is "NO" ,, but still in dout
thank you in advance
