Silent Death

It is with a fond farewell I had to retire my server yesterday. Nothing wrong with it, its just that I can no longer host it at the NOC it has lived at for the past 4 years and I haven’t found a new home for it.

One of the most annoying aspects of losing it was that with my current mail hosting package I’m unable to run procmail which means I’m suddenly starting to get e-mail borne viruses and the reminants of other malignant mail worms.

Up until now a few simple procmail rules removed every mail virus and SoBig.F type mail that ever came near me and gave me peace of mind. Now Norton Antivirus regularly has a hissyfit as a new attempt to attack my machine crops up.

Why oh why can’t hosting companies set-up this simple yet invaluble little application so that users don’t have to deal with these things?
