When sending as much email as you do you should consider employing multiple IP addresses for sending.  This is tricky, the only one who I know knows how to do it is at http://simscripts.com


I've been looking for a way to do this with sendmail.  If anyone has any info on this, let me know, thanks.

Mike,

I'm interested in a similar patch for sendmail, too.  If you come up with anything please let me know.  I, not being a C programmer, also do not know how to implement this into Exim or qmail as Mihai from www.simscripts.com has done.

If anyone has specific details about how this (rotating IP sending) might be achieved with any MTA I'm definitely interested to hear it!

Just to let everyone know I asked about the qmail one and this is what I got back.

Hello,
Thank you for contacting me, here are some more details about the qmail
patch:
After patching qmail with this patch, it will use an ip pool for outgoing
messages, this ip pool is just a text file containing one ip on each
line, an example ip pool could look like this:
1.1.1.1
2.2.2.2
3.3.3.3
For each outgoing message qmail will bind on the ip placed on the first
line in that file ( in our example the receiving server will see the
message comming from 1.1.1.1 ). Then the patched qmail will move the ip
to the end of the file, so for the next message 2.2.2.2 will be used.
This is the mechanism used to rotate the ips.
This patch works independently of the operating system or control panel
so yes it works on plesk 7 reloaded too :)
Patching qmail costs $100/server.

>I would like more information on the qmail multiple IP address patch and how it work, cost, weather it will work ok with plesk 7 reloaded, etc...


I don't have the $100 right now or the need now that I don't send out to all at once so I will hold off.

The problem with Mihai's approach is when upgrades to the mailer software are applied you lose the patch.

It would be much better if he would explain how it's done so it can manually be re-applied by the admin.  I tried to get him to divulge his methods to me when I purchased his Exim patch for a client - to no avail.  I guess he wants to keep his corner of the market and fears copycats.

terryj,

Thanks for the suggestion on how to "hack" headers and footers.  I've been doing it the hard way!

Thanks,
Brian
