First 12 Hours

In the first 12 hours of running the SMTP TarPit with just a few domains, it's received attempts to send 408 items of (suspected) spam, and the Tar Pit has kept them waiting for a total of 4900.13 minutes. Looking through the logs, it looks like most of the connections have been from machines on the end of Cable or DNS lines.

So, not bad for a start... let's get a few more domains actively using the Tar Pit and slow down the spam and spammers!

When I get time, I'll put some log file analysis stuff together and get it posting stats here automatically.
