EXITCODE 77 to the spammer with either sendmail (8.9.3) or procmail
(3.11pre4)? Procmail is my local mailer but I've never heard of a
system-wide .procmailrc -- probably wouldn't be kosher.
IMHO it's better to use sendmail for deflecting spammers because the
cost for you (in terms of machine resources, time) is lower.
Better yet, you might want to take a look at postfix:
It's a _lot_ faster than sendmail, more secure, and allows you a far
better control over what you accept and what not. I've been using it on
production servers since the first public release in December 1998, and
I never looked back.
