Hi, I am new to the DCC world. I have setup a test DCC server with Vernon's help and I am currently just logging mail that logs in above 10 with the DCCM interface. My question to you is this: I am testing this service on a sendmail server that we use as a virtual hosting type setup. We don't use procmail so thats not an options. But what I am looking to do is this. And I just want to run it by the list before I propose it to management. First I am looking to create a whitelist file for every customer (about 100/ about 1500 box total) and have that included in the mai whitelist file. This seems doable, I am concerned about problems with that list being turned into a map file, multiple times a day, does DCCM does this automatically? Second, I noticed in the whitelist I have the option on putting in the env_to statement and a 821 "to" address. Would I be correct in assuming this means that the TO address would receive no logging/bouncing via DCCM? Apparently I have customer who would rather get the spam then have it bounced/rejected. Also Vernon seems to think I might want a couple DCCD servers. I have one now and it seems to be handling the load fine. In the future we might be adding another server with about 500 addresses. I am just wondering at what point messages/per day might I want to look at adding another server. The hardware isn't an issue, but I don't want to complicate things. Does adding a couple peers flod's add a lot of overhead?
