The remaining servers will be moved the coming Monday, November 22, starting from 11.30 pm and the move should be finished on Tuesday, November 23, by 8 am CET. Once again, we have taken the necessary steps to ensure that users won’t be affected by this. Should you still experience problems during this time please be patient. Things should go back to normal at least after 8 am.
During the next few weeks our servers will be moved to a new data center. The move will be done gradually with the first servers the coming Monday, November 15, starting from 11.30 pm and will be finished on Tuesday, November 16, by 8 am CET. We have taken the necessary steps to ensure that users won’t be affected by this. Should you still experience problems during this time please be patient. Things should go back to normal at least after 8 am.
The rest of our servers will be moved at later dates and we will announce every move on our blog, Facebook and Twitter.
Last weekend we moved the domains www.spamdrain.net, pop.spamdrain.net and imap.spamdrain.net to our new servers. This means that we’re now almost completely running on the new infrastructure we first wrote about back in March. It’s taken a bit longer than we expected back then but now we’re almost there.
The only thing remaining now is to move the services providing filtering for our domain filtering customers. We will do this during the coming months and we hope this will be completed by the end of the summer. Most of you who use the domain filtering service won’t have to do anything and won’t notice. No need to change your MX records.
If you have set up your firewall as recommended in our FAQ you will only have to make sure to update the rules so that it doesn’t block the IP addresses used by our new servers. Please make sure your firewall has been configured to accept all traffic on port 25 (or the port used by your mail server) from the following IP addresses:
188.8.131.52 - 184.108.40.206 (220.127.116.11/27)
You can read more about how to configure your firewall in our FAQ (log in required).
Recently we have worked a lot with speeding up the Archive and Report pages on the web site. These pages should now be a lot more responsive than they used to be.
We’ve just moved the SpamDrain blog to a new server. The new home is at https://blog.spamdrain.com.
You can now log in to your personal pages and view statistics for your subscription. Currently there are charts displaying the amount of filtered spam, viruses and regular messages as well as the percentage of all spam SpamDrain has been able to catch for your accounts. The charts display statistics for the last week, the four last weeks and the last 6 months. Continue reading “SpamDrain displays spam statistics for your subscription” »

Spammers often use clever tricks to disguise the actual link of the site they are trying to fool the recipient into visiting. The latest trick is to construct a Goggle search link which utilizes Google’s “I’m feeling luck” feature. Continue reading “Spammers hide behind Google’s “I’m feeling lucky” button” »
Ett nytt spam har dykt upp inom den senaste timmen. Mailet går ut på att ett Ukrainskt IT-företag behöver din hjälp med att skynda på pengatransaktioner mellan Sverige och Ukraina. Du ska ta emot pengar och sedan skicka dessa vidare. Som kompensation får du 8% av pengarna du hjälper till att flytta. Continue reading “Nätbedragare söker nya pengatvättare” »
