Mail Server With An Attitude
I was looking for something in the mail log and found this:
Mar 23 03:47:48 conductor qmail: 859106868.539609 delivery 283464: success: 18.104.22.168_accepted_message./Remote_host_said:_250_Whew!_Done! _Was_it_as_good_for_you_as_it_was_for_me?/
Intrigued, I went and checked the site; here's the [transcript]:
220 mail.compmore.net SMTP ready, Who are you gonna pretend to be today?
helo conductor.synapse.net 250 mailr.compmore.net Is thrilled beyond bladder control to meet conductor.synapse.net
data 354 OK, fire away. End with
Test . 250 Whew! Done! Was it as good for you as it was for me?
help 500 Bloody Amateur! Proper forging of mail requires recognizable SMTP commands!
quit 221 It's been real. Take off Eh!
[Editor's Note: At the time that I tried this, the server shown above no longer featured the amusing responses. Evan, however, was kind enough to provide a couple of IP numbers that *were* using those responses. No guarantees, but you can try 22.214.171.124 or 126.96.36.199 -- assuming, of course, that you know how to log into a mail server.
