fakehermes project is a companion program to hermes that implements a fake (and very simple) SMTP server.

Why would I want to run a fake SMTP server?

The main use of fakehermes is to configure it as a secondary MX server. Some spammers will try to send spam directly to your least prefered SMTP server, because some secondary SMTP servers are badly configured and will relay spam to the main SMTP server without any check.

Placing fakehermes as a secondary SMTP server will receive (but not proccess) those spammers connections. Legitimate connections will retry sooner or later on the main SMTP server.

fakehermes will also log all attempts to send email through it with a very detailed log that will log not only who sent the email but also what tricks did they try to send it.

fakehermes does NOT implement a full SMTP server. It will NOT deliver ANY mail, so DO NOT try to use it as your main SMTP server.
