Sponsoring Project Honey Pot

Dogsbody Technology is a proud sponsor of Project Honey Pot with the donation of over 40 mail server addresses and some raw cash to the project.

Project Honey Pot allows us to track the reputation of all of our customers servers.  They would do this without donations from us but it’s the least we can do to support such a great service.

To quote their website…

Project Honey Pot is the first and only distributed system for identifying spammers and the spambots they use to scrape addresses from your website. Using the Project Honey Pot system you can install addresses that are custom-tagged to the time and IP address of a visitor to your site. If one of these addresses begins receiving email we not only can tell that the messages are spam, but also the exact moment when the address was harvested and the IP address that gathered it.

If you run servers yourself, we encourage you to signup to the project, monitor your IP addresses and donate an MX record or a link from your site.
