Server :: Stop Setting Up An Open Relay Spam Server?

Jul 25, 2011

Because our visitors/customers are short term, and may be configured incorrectly with their own mail servers we automagically redirect all port 25 traffic going to internal IP's to our own mail servers while on our network.(postfix on centos 5.6)While I have taken some measures to prevent it from spamming, I would greatly appreciate some assistance.I will be putting in clamav, but I haven't configured it yet with the mail.I am using postfix, but can also put on procmail or even spam assassin

Server :: Left Exim4 As Open Relay, Got Reported As Spam?

Apr 19, 2011

I set up an exim4 server successfully and was able to send/receive mail! I fired off a couple emails to my friend and never got a response. Oh well, I thought, must be because my domain name might be considered spam.Flash forward to today and I get an email from the people who host my server, telling me that I have left my exim4 relay open. Looking through some of my users' email, I see a series of messages with the subject 'Message frozen':

Message 1QCCQJ-0004FP-OY has been frozen (delivery error message).
The sender is <>.

Server :: Individual User Controlled Spam Quarantine On Relay Svr?

Jan 12, 2010

I all ready have a Debian spam filter setup using Postgrey, Postfix, Amavis-new, spamassassin, and ClamAV this box is a relay spam filter server to our SBS Exchange Box. Currently all Virus laden email is disposed of, and all spam that is not thrown out gets sent to a spam filter account on the exchange server that I check periodically. This is inefficient and I'd rather not do this, additionally I'd like users to have control over their own white lists and so forth.

I am willing to start from scratch on this as the spam filter is running in a VM environment I can plug a new one in and be running in minutes. The issue I am having is that I cannot find any information on how to do this. Plenty, including HOWTOs, on how to do this with local users on the spam box and also have it relay to another server, but not how to make quarantine folders for relay recipients that are access

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

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?

Server :: Sending Spam To The Spam Folder?

Apr 30, 2009

I just setup SpamAssassin and what not following this tutorial


I am using CentOS 5.3. I was half way through that and got an email that had ***SPAM*** in the subject. Haven't received any more. First of all I want to know if spam will still get delivered, and just have a modified subject. Second, I want to know how to set it up so Spam goes to a user's spam mailbox (Virtual Users). And third of all, is it possible to disable spam filtering on a user basis, preferably using MySQL tables? Is it possible for users to mark a message as spam, and all further messages sent from that address will be sent to spam folder but only for that user?

EDIT: Yes spam is getting delivered with a modified header, on the server site, how can i deliver to spam folder? how to create IMAP virtual mailboxes on request without having to send an email to them first? Using virtual users with Courier Imap

Server :: Roaming Users Getting Flagged As Spam On Server?

Apr 16, 2010

Amavis-new on my mail server is marking my emails as spam, like so:


Apr 16 12:15:52 myserver amavis[30979]: (o3GIFltt008868) Blocked SPAM, AM.PDP-SOCK [xx.xx.xx.xx] [xx.xx.xx.xx] <> -> <>, quarantine: spam-w1hxRn9Pr4P6.gz, Message-ID: <>, mail_id: w1hxRn9Pr4P6, Hits: 7.844, size: 6763, 1986 ms

The mail server is not on my local LAN, and all the primary users are roaming. They connect via TLS auth, which is required to make a sendmail connection to my server. I could whitelist all addresses in my domain, but then anyone spoofing my email wouldn't be seen as spam. How do I simply tell amavis-new and/or sendmail not to spam scan TLS authenticated users?

Server :: Sendmail Relay Messages To Ext. SMTP Server?

Jan 31, 2010

I've got a server set up with Debian. The problem is that my ISP doesn't allow usage of port 25 (as I understand a lot of ISP's don't).I have PHP scripts hat use the mail() function to send e-mails through the Sendmail application.So, my question is: How can I relay messages sent to sendmail to an external SMTP server (like Google Mail, for example)? Would this be easier to do in the PHP configuration, or on the Sendmail side of things?I've used PEAR extensions in PHP to achieve this before, but scripts downloaded from the Internet generally just use the basic mail() function, and it would be a real pain to modify them all.

Server :: Server Side Spam Filtering

Feb 4, 2010

I have a mail server (dovecot+postfix) on Centos with amavis/clamav installed and working. It correctly identifies spam as such and puts it in the headers. I want it to move those suspected spam messages into a spam folder. I do have this working on an older debian server that I didn't setup. If someone could point me in the direction if where that config might be. I can't find it in any of the mail config files.Could there be a seperate package doing this?

Server :: VPN Is Being Used In Sending Spam

We have a vpn that is accessible to anyone. We already block port 25, 587 and 465. But I am still receiving spam reports. I believe that the users of my vpn is infected by a virus or something that sends spam. Are there any other ways that spammer send spam mails without using the smtp ports?

My guess is that they are trying to send it by accessing a webmail. Have you heard of anything like that? how to block spam?

Server :: Add Spam Header Into Email Messages?

Dec 19, 2009

I'm setting up email gateway using Postfix, Amavisd-new, ClamAV and SpamAssassin on Opensuse 11.1. Everything seems okie, but I can't have messages with added spam headers, such as:

X-Spam-Flag: NO
X-Spam-Score: 0.233
X-Spam-Status: No, score=0.233 tagged_above=-10 required=6.6
tests=[ALL_TRUSTED=-1.8, AWL=0.536, BAYES_50=0.001,]

When I try to debug amavis, I can see that SPAM-TAG, <> -> <>, No, score=5.406 tagged_above=-999 required=6.2 tests=[LOCAL_DRUG=4, NO_DNS_FOR_FROM=1.407, NO_RELAYS=-0.001] but they don't add to email messages. I've configured amavisd-new with $sa_tag_level_deflt = -999 to add spam headers at all but not successful.

Server :: Enabling Transparent Spam Filtering?

Jun 2, 2010

I need to implement a form of filtering. Current topology is like so:

Internet -> Smoothwall -> MS Exchange server (w/ OWA) -> Clients

So I need to enable transparent spam filtering on the smoothwall system, which is a full fledged Linux system. There are no 'free' modules available for smoothwall that enable spam filtering. And due to the monetary constraints of the project I'm working on, something free is required.

I don't have any experience with this - I've done a couple of searches and came up with "SpamAssasin", but I can't find any relevant guides that allow transparent scanning - they all assume the mail is stored on THAT server.

So I'm here to ask the more experienced people what sort of packages will enable this functionality? Would like something that has a WebUI, but that's not absolutely necessary.

Server :: Postfix & Anti-spam Optimization

Lately the number of spams encreased (from 1-2 every day to aprox 8-10 every day per domain for some domains ).I post here the output of postconf -n. Maybe someone gives me some advices about what cat I change or how can I optimize. I must recognise that I don't fully understand details of how postfix and all the restrictions works together, but I will document every advice.

Server :: Spam/virus Fetchmail Option

Oct 7, 2010

My client has finally had enough of being attacked via SPAM/Viruses and having his single email account for his company being destroyed. Since it is a single account and he does not want to add additional accounts or create a new one(mail is hosted by ISP), I wanted to ask the forum on their opinion on using Fetchmail to download the POP3 mail and having it piped through SMAM Assassion or DSpam and or CLAM_AV or F-PROT. In addition to that I am going to use a corporate strength anti-virus such as F-prot(Been using for years) and really put this email through a microscope. I also was thinking of just blocking out all domains other than his clients list of domains so in other words block all and allow just the domains that we know are valid and are only from his clients. It is super restrictive but what I believe will end his issue.

Server :: How To Set Sendmail To Allow Authenticated Relay?

Aug 11, 2010

I have a CentOS server, and am using Sendmail to relay for various domains. However, I also need to have users send their outgoing mail via this server. I want to have them enter a username and password in Outlook, Thunderbird, etc in their smtp server settings. I currently have this set up via an Exchange server, but I cannot get it to work with Sendmail. I know little about Sendmail, and have done all the config via Webmin, which has worked fine as far as relaying domains. But even though I have added the CentOS user account for the smtp relaying, the clients mail apps give an error saying relaying denied.

Server :: Postfix Setup To Block Spam From / To Own Address

Jun 21, 2011

I have set up a couple of postfix servers for my domains, but the only thing I am missing now is this: How to block the public sending mail from my email to my email? I have managed it with SPF, but surely there must be a better way, that returns "relay not allowed" to the client. The SPF method costs too much, since it must make a dns request for each mail. So far, I have not gotten many of these mails, unless when testing my mailserver, but as I see it, anyone should not be allowed to send mail from to

Somebody must have thought about this a long time ago, and there is simply that little line in main.conf that I'm missing.. My setup is this (virtual): I have a primary mx, with postfix, courier IMAP/POP3 server, a user database, and sasl via saslauthd. I also have a secondary mail server (backup mx) with no sasl auth, but with a copy of the mail users in the virtual tables, but added as relay_* users instead.

Spamassassin and SPF testing is replicated too, so most of the stuff should work, but I simply cannot find a setting in Postfix that denies someone to mail FROM my address TO my address. When mailing from my address and out in the open, they are required to authenticate, but not when using one of my my domain addresses, and also targeting my domain addresses.

As said, It is possible with a strict SPF setting, but that is at a cost for every lookup. It would be quicker for postfix to lookup the sender and the recipient in the relay/virtual tables, and deny if both addresses were in the recipient tables, and sender is not authenticated.

CentOS 5 Server :: Spamassassin - Amavisd Not Catching Spam

Jul 21, 2010

I followed this how to document [URL] to install postfix, Amavisd, SpamAssassin and ClamAV. My postfix installation is working fine and I can send and receive emails fine. However, it looks like SpamAssassin is not catching any emails. Emails do get passed over to Amavisd as I can see in the logs but ALL Messages comes out CLEAN without being tagged as spam.

As per the document, I did test by sending a test virus email

sendmail -i < sample-virus-simple.txt.

This is caught and NOT let through so ClamAV is ok but when i send

sendmail -i < sample-spam-GTUBE-junk.txt

it does get delievered without being detected as SPAM or tagged as SPAM.

As I said, I have followed the documentation dot by dot and hence do not have spamassassin starting up as a service but i guess amavisd starts it within itself as a module.

Also, my postfix version is the one that supports mysql virtual tables which I got from rpmforge.
