Server :: Postfix Rejecting Mails

May 17, 2011

I've enabled popb4smtp in my mail server. Is this because of the IP don't have a dns record? How can I sending email from this type of Ip which don't have dns entry?. But if I enable SMTP auth I can send email form this same ip. Another thing is I can connect to port 587 from the email client to send email but can't connect to port 25.

Server :: Unexplained Mails In Postfix Queue / Get Rid Of Them - Why Is So?

Jul 21, 2010

On the postfix mailserver of our company I'm seeing several of these messages in the deferred queue (apologies for the terrible formatting, I couldn't get it any better) code...

looking at the headers, there is probably something wrong with our DNS-server, which we will investigate, but I still have some questions about the failure notice:

- why are the failure notices refused? Is that a fault on the sender side, for example sending the wrong return address?

- where does this[] come from anyway? I don't see it anywhere in the headers.

Server :: Postfix As Receiving Mails For Multiple Domains?

Nov 15, 2010

I have configured postfix to send/receive mail from/to for two domains we manage. [URL] and [URL] Most of the cases there is no issue sending out or receiving emails. However, a few users of complained that their senders were not able to sent them email. after much investigation, we started thinking that the mailserver failed to send us email may the failing on doing a SMTP Banner issue.

Is there anyone who knows how to deal with this SMTP banner issue with multiple domain. We want different SMTP banner when doing EHLO on different server.

General :: Postfix And Gmail / Dropping Approx 50% Of Mails With An Error?

Nov 14, 2010

I've setup postfox on Fedora 13 in order to send emails to and from gmail. I thought this was working, but it is dropping approx 50% of mails with an error. The other 50% work OK. It seems completely random.
I've read the link but I stil dont quite understand.

My machine is just a PC, on talktalk's network in the UK.
I use dyndns to allocate a DNS alias (well several actually) to my dynamic IP address - not sure if this is relevent.

Is it failing due to a reverse DNS lookup on the dyndns host? Or is it because it cannot resolve my localhost.localdomain?

I used to have this running on opensuse and swear it used to work 100% of the time.
What am I doing wrong?

Fedora Servers :: Postfix Server "reputation" / Mails Are Blocked?

Apr 21, 2009

I've got a Fedora postfix server that I just upgraded from 9 to 10 using preupgrade. Starting yesterday, some messages were rejected by servers because the IP address had a poor "reputation". The odd thing is, the IP address they're registering isn't the IP address the server is sending from.

When I look at the full headers of our outgoing e-mail, the e-mail is listed as coming from ***.***.***.11, which is the correct address. But these services are somehow tying the e-mails back to ***.***.***.12, which is used for a different purpose entirely. Since this *.12 address doesn't match the MX record, I'm assuming that's why the mails are being blocked, but I'm not sure how the mails are being identified as coming from that address in the first place. It's odd that this just started when I upgraded.

I experienced a full hard drive yesterday due to a massive error_log. We took care of the errors, but later found out we were missing files, including a MySQL database table. Having a shopping cart and ecommerce stuff on the site, we found that some of those files were missing, too.Does RHEL 5 have some sort of feature for automatically deleting files when the partition is full? If it does, I want to turn it off.

Ubuntu :: Postfix Not Forwarding E-mails Properly

The problem is that the e-mail isn't making it into my GMail inbox. I've checked my spam folder and it isn't there. And bafflingly, according to the logs, the message does seem to be getting sent:

Ubuntu Networking :: Traffic Monitor - How Much Data Downloaded/uploaded On An Interface This Month And Previous Month

Nov 20, 2010

I'm looking for a powerful network traffic monitor that can do all of the following (or at least a combination of tools that can do the following):

Tell me how much data was downloaded/uploaded on an interface this month and the previous month tell me how the traffic was used throughout the monthshow which internal IPs (IPs in the network) used how much traffic show which ports/protocols on those IPs used all that traffic

Hhow LIVE traffic flow statistics that can tell me total speed of traffic going through an interface as well asshow which internal IPs (IPs in the network) are using how much of the traffic show which ports/protocols on those IPs are using that traffic

This tool will run on a linux router through which all my internal PCs are connected to the Internet. This means the tool(s) need to work with NAT (traffic being forwarded and not necessarily destined for the interfaced being monitored).

The distribution being run doesn't have a package manager so any packages or dependencies have to be manually compiled and SCPed over file by file. For this reason, the tool/tools need to be simple (things like vnstat, not things like ntop that have their own web interface).

I know that vnstat can tell me the first bullet point so it's only there incase there's a tool out there that can do everything. If there's a tool that can only do the second or third bullet point, that's great too - I'll just keep using vnstat and look for something else to do the other task.

Software :: Postfix -- Mails Duplicating Due To Lock Files?

Mar 3, 2010

Today I got a call from our chairman saying that he gets duplicate mails. When I checked the postfix logs, I found that it is the locks that are creating problems. The mail which duplicated was to an alias which included our chairman. In that alias, the mailbox of a user was locked since he was receiving his mails (I use dovecot for mail distribution), and hence the lock was on for that mailbox. When postfix tried to deliver the mails, it encountered the lock and the mail delivery was stopped, thus by requeuing the specific mail. While postfix retried the delivery, it found another lock with another mailbox and again the delivery was stopped, thus sending the mail back to queue

However there is something wrong as when i run postfix: service postfix server i get no error but when checking the status:service postfix status i get: master dead but pid file exists Looking into /var/log/mailog i find this line being the issue:

I gather this is a file permission issue and ive tried to make sure the public folder in /var/spool/postfix is correctly set but still no avail.

Security :: Blacklist Syslogd - Auto Delete Log Files?

I know this is very nice feature and all that, but sometimes privacy in this competitive world is a matter fact. Here goes the questions: Is it possible to 'auto delete' the syslogd files automatically? May the destruction of the logs make some hangs on my system? May some program need the daemon to function properly?
