I will call my mailing list "list" in hopes to finding a solution
to my problem. What is happening is spammers have found a way to
send spam directly to the digesters by using "list-digest-outgoing"
This spam does not generate with the digest nor does it archive.
But it finds its way to all the people in digest mode. I do have
root access to this machine as well as the mail aliases, but I am
clueless on how to stop this without stopping the digest. Any and
all help would be so much appreciated. I am also willing to send a
copy of my majordomo aliases if this would help.
My low-tech solution to this was just to rename list-digest-outgoing
to something not easily guessable, like
"list-digest-outgoing-xyzzy" and changing the other aliases for the
list to conform. It's unlikely to be discovered, since a spammer has
to get their grubby little hands on an actual message to read the
headers, but if it is, you can change it again.
