hi how about firewalling off the ip - useing many of the opensource implemenations of the firewalls or if your mta is 
postfix you can compile spamassin as a part of postfix and let it handle the spam problem 

it can drop the smtp connection in mid data if it decided that the connection is spam !

or if you are going to use the firewall put the computer in the stealth mode ( ie refuse to outgoing syn or icmp or any 
kind of data ) for the ip address that is sending the emails 

more details like the mta used and the frequency of the attempts and we will come up with a better solution

Subject: SPAM filter...

Dear All,

Can any body suggest me the mail filter
software(Opensource :-)) which can avoid the
dictionary atttacks on the server.Our mx server has
Solaris O.S.

The spammmers are trying to find out the Valid E-mails
by blindly sending mails to randomly selected
characters as receipent ID?



Do you Yahoo!?
