Spam Hammer

Spam Hammer is a method of defending e-mail users against spam by "temporarily rejecting" any email from a sender it does not recognize. We defer connections from mail servers we do not have in our whitelist. This simply means we ask sending mail server to try again later. This is a form of "graylisting". See Spam Hammer for more details and how to enable.
