I am having problem to collecting email from remote POP3 (all the emails for a domain is stored here) and distribute it after collecting to several users defined to Linux server. I have install postfix in Linux server for email distribution.
I have fedora running as our email server at work using sendmail. It used to have spamassassin and MailScanner installed, but one of those died over the weekend and killed the mail server. We do not need either of these as we are using a web based spam filter now (postini), so I tried removing these. I have discovered that the mail is in the mqueue waiting for delivery to the users mailboxes. I have tried using "sendmail -q -v":
Code: Running /var/spool/mqueue/n51Jx6Gg023820 (sequence 1 of 1174) <email@example.com>... Connecting to local... <firstname.lastname@example.org>... Deferred: local mailer (/usr/bin/procmail) exited with EX_TEMPFAIL
Running /var/spool/mqueue/n51JsuRe023619 (sequence 2 of 1174) <email@example.com>... Connecting to local... <firstname.lastname@example.org>... Deferred: local mailer (/usr/bin/procmail) exited with EX_TEMPFAIL .....
I do not have a procmail config file: /etc/procmailrc. I am not sure why, or what it should be, perhaps that is the problem. I guess I don't exactly know how this server runs all that well. I was able to get it up and running but never understood it enough to now find what is not working correctly.
The common wisdom seems to be to setup an SMTP server (say postfix) so that connections either coming from the same host or where the end delivery is local can do so without using any authentication mechanism.
This will for example allow fetchmail to deliver fetched mail locally on port 25 (without logging in) for any user.
However, what if I setup the SMTP server to force every incoming connection to be authenticated regardless if the end delivery is local or relayed and regardless where the connection comes from.
Is it possible to configure fetchmail to use a password when doing the local delivery?
(I haven't been able to find any such configuration options in fetchmail.)
I have the following problem and tried (almost) anything to fix it but without a full success.
We're running a server with CentOS 5.4. Every night a logwatch report is send. These mails are rejected by our mailserver because some invalid details. These mails are send to local user root which is redirected to another external mail address with /etc/aliases.
At first the mail was send from email@example.com to firstname.lastname@example.org. As you can imagine, our mailserver rejected this because the localhost.localdomain parts. So I changed the sendmail config with these options:
This solved my problem partially: Mail is now coming from root@domainA.com (which is OK), but is send to email@example.comA.com (slave02 is the local hostname), which is not OK. I tried everything I could find to change that last part to, but nothing seems to work.
I found 2 previous posts, one from 2005 and one from 2006. The 2005 post was not very helpful and the 2006 threads are not exactly what I was expecting. So I wanted to ask the question to be sure. I have already stood up the new fedora 12 server. The old server is also fedora 12. I need to migrate local users and sendmail mailboxes. In the past couple of years the environment was small enough to create a copy of the users and then have the users mail themselves, but I want to start migrating users/mailboxes properly.
On a unix level I am a jr admin, but I have extensive senior level experience as a windows engineer and network engineer. I do feel comfortable with using the unix command line, but usually operate the unix systems thru webmin because I am not familular with more complex commands. Ideally a software solution to migrate users and/or mailboxes from one server to another is what I am looking for, but in leiu of a software solution I still need to migrate user accounts and their mailboxes. LDAP is not in place, but if the process becomes easier with LDAP I am willing to do what is needed to set up LDAP. (I have no previous experience setting up LDAP)
I do not want to change my mail server from sendmail to different software. At least right now. Both systems are up and running. They can connect to each other via public ipv4 address' only. The new server has already been installed and configured with all the software to match the old server. How do I migrate users and sendmail mailboxes from one fedora 12 server to another fedora 12 server?
I am having Sendmail ver 8.13.1 installed on CentOS 4.5. Recently we have noticed that some emails are not getting delivered to user. Mailserver is receiving emails and they are getting processed but not getting delivered to user.
I have checked mail log and in the log it shows that email has been delivered to user below is log for reference
I don't know what happened but sendmail suddenly stopped authenticate my users who tries to send mail. I use slackware 13.0 and sendmail for SMTP with ssl and plain authentication. Imapd works fine. There is nothing in logs just that the client did not issue MAIL/EXPN/VRFY/ETRN during connection.
For a project that I have been assigned to, I need to send emails to a business partner(business_partner.com) from one production server. However, my emails neither reach their destination nor bounce back to me.
Working with our business partner's IT support, the following error was discovered in their maillogs:
Further analysis by my IT support shows that emails are successfully sent out ("Message accepted for delivery"):
The app I coded is not using a public internet email address (e.g. me@hidden_domain_name.com) to send these notifications.
Instead, it uses an intranet email address (the server's where my code resides: firstname.lastname@example.org_domain_name.com).
We created an alias but it made no change. Would adding my public internet email address to "trusted-users" file (we use sendmail)
i have fedora5 installed on my machine MACH1, which acts as a linux server for few machines. Its over network and we have a dedicated mail server too which is globally accessible. I wanted to set up a local mail server on MACH1, so that i shall be able to send/receive mails from all the users as well as to our other global mail server(on internet).
I want to setup a FAI server for which I was looking for the best method of mirroring the Debian Lenny. I want to setup a local mirror with the best method available for mirroring. If it is ftpsync, please provide me some best ways of doing it. I tried ftpsync mirroring but that was not getting properly working due to insufficient I want this mirror to be accessible in my FAI setup so that I can start the installation on multiple machines and start the updates and package installation to be done from the same local mirror.
I have a problem with sendmail. I am using the zen.spamhaus.org dnsbl, and it is doing a wonderful job of blocking incoming spam from open relays. But it is blocking my users who are on a dynamic ip range from any isp remotely. They should be able to authenticate and send messages no matter where they are as long as they authenticate right? I just want to use the blacklist to block incoming mail to my server that is being distributed to our email addresses.
I want to block people that are hosting mail servers and sending mail to my domain from isp sub-nets. But I don't want to block my users that are sitting on isp subnets using their mail client to authenticate over smtp and send an email from my mail servers.
After upgrading from a working 9.10 system to 10.04 Postfix has stopped delivery email to users. Sending email is fine and IMAP(s) and POP are working fine but receiving messages now get the follwing message
postfix/pipe: 65B941B61F0: to=<email@example.com>, relay=dovecot, delay=1081, delays=1081/0.02/0/0.1, dsn=4.3.0, status=deferred (temporary failure) Using Postfix with Dovecot, MySQL & Amavis plus spamassasin
Does anyone have any idea what the upgrade process may of changed in the upgrade none of the conf file were replaced during the upgrade and only one parameter caused a issue for Dovecot after the upgrade "ssl_disable = no" after disabling this dovecot started
Well I want my sendmail to pipe all users' incoming emails to /dev/null ... I just don't want to accept emails. Every user that exist on the system currently or will be made in future, I want their incoming emails to them to be piped to /dev/null .... I just want those users to be able to send emails.
I am trying to setup a sendmail server on my dedicated server. It was pre-configured to use exim from cpanel. Is it possible to use exim for all emails from a a certain domain i setup on the server and sendmail for others?
ex. domain1.com -> exim domain2.com -> sendmail
If it is possible can someone let me know how i would go about doing this? If it is not how would i disable exim and use sendmail for all mail?
I am trying to set up a mail server on centos5 using sendmail and dovecot, and eventually spamassassin and some antivirus filter as well. I'd also like to get the proper secure auth mechanism set up at some point too. But for starters, I've been having a lot of difficulty trying to even connect to the mail server from a client computer in the local network. I installed Eudora on the client and after some tweaking in dovecot I was able to connect to the mail server, but then when I try to send an email I get a "connection refused" error, with nothing being logged on the server that I can see.
The last time I set up a mail server was Fedora Core 2, so the configuration files have changed a bit to say the least, and I can't really refer back to those to set up this new server. Does anybody know of a good step-by-step doc on getting the mail server going? I've read the man pages and other various readme's, but these really only list out the available options with no really good explanation of what needs to be done to get the mail server going. If there isn't a full write-up on how to do this, I'll put something together when I'm finished so others can use it in the future.
I'm Trying to setup Sendmail to work with my domain in my server which is :
Code: Linux Centos 5.4 My server can send mail locally to users in my Linux Box and it can receive mails from yahoo and other mail providers in the web, but when i try to send mails to yahoo or others it send me some mail delivery message which is :
I am trying to make my webserver a well respected email sender and it appears to me that using DKIM is something I need to do.
I have no experience with this and would like to know if anyone thinks there are issues that I should be aware of before going down this path.
Also, I have not been able to find any good, STEP BY STEP, documentation on how to set up DKIM with Sendmail.
I am also not sure if you need a certain network configuration for DKIM to work...this is what I am working with:
My webserver (centos 5.3, sendmail 8.13.8) sends outgoing mail and has a valid reverse DNS that matches a forward DNS. The MX records for my webserver's domain point to a third party email provider who handles the incoming mail for that domain. I added an spf record that signifies it that my webserver is authorized to send mail for mydomain.
I've setup a Lamp Server for Testing, The Lamp Server is Up & Running on CentOs 5.5
I am now trying to setup a VSFTP server where local users can upload files to there home directory so that Apache can serve web pages straight from the directories of system user home/accounts giving users the ability to run their own web sites which are hosted off the main server [tutorial here: [url]
So far i have been able to serve/display index.html files from the users home directory [url] but so far i cant upload files to any user home directory, every time i try to upload a file with filezilla i get this error message: 553 Could not create file. Critical file transfer error
I have searched online for similar problems like mine and so far i've tried alot of the solution but none seem to work. I'm confused, dont know where i went wrong, i put the users in a group called ftpusers and here are the permissions on the users (test, ftpuser & testftp) home directory. have a look an tell me where i went wrong :(
Also the root directory where the web pages are served from is called public_html here are the permissions
Here is my vsftp.conf file can someone check it to see if i made any errors in there:
