OpenSUSE Network :: Deal With Mass Postfix Relay And Dovecot Login Attempts

Jul 25, 2011

For about a week now I've been seeing mass attempts to relay through postfix and login to dovecot from the same 2 addresses, none are successful due to how postfix/dovecot are configured and I wouldn't be overly worried but my isp have picked up on it and are nagging at me

What ways do people go about just dropping connection attempts from offending addresses/ranges when stuff like that happens? An ideal thing would be something that detects repeated failed attempts from a host or range and subsequently ignore/ban them, perhaps for a specified length of time, something along the lines of denyhosts and fail2ban for ssh would be great Don't know if there's anything out there or just a plain tried and trusted method anyone might use for stuff like this, if not a hint on the most appropriate way to go about it 'manually' would do

OpenSUSE Network :: Setting Up Default Postfix Sender / Using Relay For MTA

Dec 17, 2010

I have setup up an Opensuse as a simple we/application server.It handles requests for various things and will need to send out email on occasion for things like password reset requests, information / warnings etc. etc.This is a standard OPenSuse 11.x install with defaults so it comes with Postfix as the mta.I do not want a mail server I just want to send out via my clients mail server which is hosted exchange rackspace, which simply requires SMTP auth to do so.What would be the proper way to do this so ALL e-mail send from this machine, regardless of account like WWWRun or when logged in and sending from the command line has the same sender all the time.

OpenSUSE :: Postfix Relay Denied On 11.4

Jun 4, 2011

I was never confident with postfix, but used it for several years now on my own server. I even noted the exact config used. But my old server crashed and I have to build fast a news one and I don't receive mails anymore. Here is the log message when trying to send to me from gmail:

Jun 4 08:06:34 ks3095514 postfix/smtpd[4008]: connect from mail-pw0-f50.google.com[209.85.160.50]
Jun 4 08:06:34 ks3095514 postfix/smtpd[4008]: NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from mail-pw0-f50.google.com[209.85.160.50]: 554 5.7.1 <jdd@dodin.net>: Relay access denied; from=<lesrevesdeness@gmail.com> to=<jdd@dodin.net> proto=ESMTP helo=<mail-pw0-f50.google.com>
Jun 4 08:06:35 ks3095514 postfix/smtpd[4008]: disconnect from mail-pw0-f50.google.com[209.85.160.50]

The main.cf file is the openSUSE default one (see below). Part of my problems seems to come from the reverse. I *could once* receive one test messsage to " ks3095514.kimsufi.com" (the default reverse/domain name) (below, commented out), but not for my own domain (dodin.org). Most of the time the only necessary lines are mydomain, myhostname, myorigin and mydestination, but this don't work anymore. New defaults??. local (from and to the server) mail works, root can send to jdd and I read it from home.

mydomain = dodin.org
inet_protocols = all
biff = no
mail_spool_directory = /var/mail
canonical_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/canonical

OpenSUSE :: 11.2x64/Postfix/dovecot 32M Memory

Jun 3, 2010

We have OpenSUSE 11.2 64bit installed (Intel XEON 4 core 2.5GHz, 4GB RAM, 500GB RAID ). One of our requirements is to provide huge emails (up to 100M each) sending and receiving. For this purpose we have configured posfix and dovecot(POP3+IMAP). Then issue is that when email size is greater than 32M it sometimes (very often) couldn't be received by users through POP3 protocol and also through IMAP (receiving process fails at server side). Could it be a kernel or hardware compatibility issue?

OpenSUSE :: Root Login - Attempts To Start Missing App?

Oct 15, 2010

Somehow an app on this box seems to have disappeared long ago which was configured to start immediatedly with a root login (eg su). Now, whenever upgrading permissions to root or logging (and assuming login as root), an error displays saying "cannot find <application>"

Considering root usually is different than other logins, am not sure where to start looking on an OpenSuSE box. I've tried without success

BASH -v to enable verbose mode before executing a "su."
BASH --debugger to enable debugging mode before executing a "su."

Logout, Login as root and inspect /var/log/ hoping to find some logfile that audits the login sequence, but may be looking at a wrong logfile.

OpenSUSE Install :: All Login / Su Attempts Fail After Applying Su Update Patch (11.2 / X86_64)

Yesterday I applied the su security patch to my openSuSE 11.2 x86_64 system.After applying the patch, any attempt at su failed, and after rebooting the system earlier this morning any login (root, user, otherwise) fails with a "Permission Denied".Is it possible that the su update somehow messed up my (standard) pam settings?

Ubuntu Servers :: Nullmailer Relay Through The Postfix?

Feb 21, 2011

I currently have a postfix / dovecot server running on one ubuntu server with nullmailer relaying webmail on a different server. This is currently working except the mail server is rejecting incorrect addresses which results in the messages being stuck in the nullmailer queue on the webmail server. Is it possible to force postfix to accept and manage all relayed messages from webmail, or is it possible for the nullmailer to manage the bounced messages correctly?

OpenSUSE Network :: Specifying Smtp Relay On Commandline Of Mail Command?

Aug 9, 2011

On my opensuse 11.4 box (although I assume the version is irrelevant), I'm trying to figure out how to do something with the mail command. We have multiple smtp relay servers and sometimes I have to test to verify that mail is bouncing off of them successfully. On my laptop, in my main.cf file for postfix, I've got the relay server listed. But to test multiple servers, I have to change the main.cf, restart postfix, send message, and then repeat for each test.

I'm trying to figure out a way to specify the smtp relay on the command line. I've been playing with the -S option which is supposed to allow variables and one of the variables in the man page is 'smtp'. I've tried several different syntaxes but nothing seems to work.

The closest I've come is:
mail -S smtp 10.1.0.63 -s "test" user@email.com < main.cf

That syntax doesn't give me an error but it still routes the message off the smtp server listed in main.cf which is not 10.1.0.63.

Server :: Postfix / Dovecot Help On New Setup

Mar 20, 2011

CentOS 5 box was just setup to replace a crashed old one. I have postfix.admin installed and working, added users (confirmed from mysql command line) and can login using telnet server pop3 with the user information. The problem I am left with is just receiving mail. I have both squirrelmail and roundcube installed, and can also authenticate using both (/var/log/maillog shows);From either webclient I can naturally send mail out and both yahoo and gmail client confirms, yet a reply shows nothing, and nothing ever shows in the maillog. Firewall is shut down but I don't know postfix enough to see how to test, or is something else grabbing the mail.

I can provide anything necessary, just let me know what. As I see it (just so far) Postfix should be the server that answers and receives the mail, dovecot is more the pop/imap the client would use, so I think it's a postfix issue. If so, can I turn up the debugging, etc. but again, I think all mail received should appear in the maillog file 1st as I see the outbound mail go fine!

Fedora Servers :: Fedora 10 - Sendmail / Dovecot Relay

I am trying to setup sendmail on a fc10 box with dovecot running imap. I have everything configured and running on the server. For example, when I run "echo 'test' | mail -s test user@mydomain.com" or even to someuser@gmail.com, the mail goes through just fine. I can then reply from both of those accounts back to the server, no problem.

Relaying denied Cannot send mail. The SMTP server does not recognize any of the authentication methods supported by Entourage. Try changing the SMTP authentication options in Account settings or contact your network administrator.

CentOS 5 Server :: Dovecot Postfix POP Not Responding?

Jan 2, 2011

I am running CentOS 5.2 on a server here in my home. It runs Dovecot and Postfix and also serves as a website host for a small website of mine. Everything works fine. POP, SMTP, Webmail, WWW, all works great and has for ages.Here's the issue. I recently reinstalled a clean copy of Windows 7 on a workstation in my home onto a new harddrive(I still have the old drive int he machine so I can boot to it as well). I setup the Windows Live Mail client to send/receive mail with my mail/web server. However, it won't connect to the POP server on my server machine.Here's the kicker. If I boot to the old harddrive that is running Windows 7, it connects fine to my mailserver and can send/receive just fine. I've checked, rechecked and rechecked and all mail settings on the mail clients on both drives are identical.

Note: The installations of Windows 7 on both drives is identical. Same computer name/ same credentials, same IP, etc. However, as I stated, I can send/receive email with my server if I boot to my old drive, but if I boot to my new drive, I cannot send/receive.

Ubuntu Servers :: Setup Postfix To Relay Email It Cannot Deliver Locally?

Jul 17, 2011

I'm trying to setup postfix (or exim, I don't mind which), so I can move away my last remaining PC from Windows.I've tinkered with Postfix for good part of a month and I can get it to accept emails using SMTP and post them to a virtual mailbox based on MySQL tables. And it rejects mail addressed to local email addresses that it can't find in the table.

First question (or problem.) I've set up Postfix to relay email it cannot deliver locally such as is the case when you send out an email. My remote host requires authentication. How can I set this up?

Second question: I want to force my clients to use either AUTH, TLS or SSL, and not allow anonymous connections (to prevent an open relay server.) How do I set that up without interfering with the smarthost setting? The smarthost login is not one of my clients, it's a pre-determined login and password that is solely used for the email relaying aspect.

Server :: Get Postfix To Deliver Valid Emails To Maildir And Relay Remaining?

Jan 20, 2010

I got a weird postfix setup question? This is a separate server to the one I posted about earlier today.

I need to setup a postfix server which will accept emails for local know address (full addresses) and deliver them straight to the users maildir.

Any unknown addresses (however for the same domain), needs to be relayed to another server.

This is a bit of a special setup as there is no fixed Internet connection to the server. So the plan is that local email get delivered straight away whilst emails to the same @domain, but that doesn't exist in the user tables get put in the hold queue and is later relayed to server number 2 when a connection is available.

I am using mysql to retrieve all my settings into postfix.

Server :: Setting Up Postfix As Outgoign Mail Relay For Several Domains / Hosts

Oct 6, 2009

I would like to setup postfix to act as a relay for the outgoing mails of a couple of servers each serving it's own domain.The mails we are talking about are standard administrative emails like user registration, password reset request. The volume of those mails will naturally grow as the site grows. Which for me poses the problem that depending on the growth of the site you will sooner or later hit the quotas imposed by (my otherwise preferred) providers like GMail or smtp.com.

So what I need is a mail relay that will only accept mails from authenticated clients from hosts in its access list and relay their mail without restrictions. Is that possible with postfix? What has to be changed in the config and what are the pitfalls?

Ubuntu Servers :: Postfix+dovecot Not Working As Expected?

Nov 9, 2010

I have tried to find solution in existing posts but could not specifically find any with my kind of issues and hence a new post on oft repeated subject !! -- and apologies for a long long post here.Here is where I am ..On a AMD 64bit machine - I have ubuntu 10.10 desktop installed. I want this development machine to support virtual mailboxes so that I can use them from multiple apps and create real life deployment situations.I installed postfix + dovecot following the tutorials available here and current state is - I can send mails using telnet sessions and I see that the mail files are getting created in /Maildir form as I have directed in the conf files. I have configured Thunderbird mail client as well.

Issue #1: Mail sending works from Thunderbird but it always responds back with 'No mail on server' message when I try to receive mails. SMTP is configured with STARTTLS and POP3 with None (i.e. plain text password)Issue #2: Also, while going thru conf, logs and during testing - I found a few things which defer in this installation for authentication. I have given the session transcripts here.Issue #3: That being major issue - I also want to configure my virtual users to use TB client to access their mails - I did not find any tutorials or pointers towards that in my search for past few days. If I send mails to a non-Unix virtual user - the mail gets stored into /home/vmail/<domain>/<user>/new directory.Here are the conf files.main.cf for postfix

Code:
# See /usr/share/postfix/main.cf.dist for a commented, more complete version
# Debian specific: Specifying a file name will cause the first
