CentOS 5 Server :: Sendmail To Postfix - Transfer All The Mail And Settings From The Old To The New?
Jul 31, 2009
i currently installed centos 5.3 with postfix. My old server is centos 4.5 final / new 5.3 final. Old server has sendmail / new has postfix. how can i transfer all the mail and settings from the old to the new? also, the old mail server is mail.xxx.xxx and for testing purposes i named the new mail server mail2.xxx.xxx.
when i an ready to put it into production, the new server will need to be mail.xxx.xxx and the old removed from the system. How do i go about changing the name and making sure everything comes out correct?
I am using postfix as spam Mailscanner to protect my mail server running sendmail. The problem is that when I forward an email from MailScanner mail me back with the following error:
<postmaster@localhost.@mydomain.com.>... Real domain name required for sender address (in reply to MAIL FROM command)) Jul 27 13:15:59 smtp postfix/local: C68AC1000001: to=<firstname.lastname@example.org>,
so i set out to change the default smtp port the server uses because my ISP blocks port 25 and i need the email to work in outlook. this morning i could receive email, but not send it. so i did some research and thought that i needed to edit the master.cf file in /etc/postfix/ by commenting out this line: smtp inet n - n - - smtpd -oand replace it with587 inet n - n - - smtpd (587 being the port i want to use)somewhere along the lines postfix server stopped running and now i cannot get it to start.if i try using SSH it crashes immediately and if i restart it in simple control panel nothing happens
I've setup my server by following a ton of goods, and it seems to work ok, but I need to start using my server for email in order to receive orders placed via my website. I've followed this guide - [URL] I followed the steps above, and tested the mail server via telnet, and all seemed to be ok. I tried sending an email via Squirrelmail, from email@example.com TO my working email firstname.lastname@example.org, but the server returned with the following message:
<email@example.com>: host mail.c1systems.co.uk[18.104.22.168] said: 550-Verification failed for <firstname.lastname@example.org> 550-The mail server could not deliver mail to email@example.com. The account or domain may not exist, they may be blacklisted, or missing the proper dns entries. 550 Sender verify failed (in reply to RCPT TO command)
I cannot get either sendmail or postfix to send a 220 response, nor respond with details. See below for sample telnet output. Details: I have a server that requires email, but only for light use. I'm definitely not an expert, but I have set up a sendmail configuration on a previous server. I tried to configure sendmail first and then postfix later, when I couldn't get sendmail working. I'm not sure exactly what the problem is, but I have a feeling the following might yield some important information. Note: this is the result for Postfix, but virtually the same thing happened with sendmail, too. That is, initially the telnet connection would close immediately. Afterwords, I could connect a second time but then it never responded with a 220 banner nor any 250's.
We have moved from a Windows based SMTP server to Sendmail on Cent 5.5. We have a special application that was written to look at the "BadMail" folder on the Windows box. I am told by my developers that it is capable of monitor remote locations and they just need to know the format or extension of the badmail files.
My question is what is the default location of the badmail folder in Sendmail? This is a default install from CentOS.
I have isntalled a server with Centos 5.2 OS, now I would like to switch from the default sendmail to postfix doing a yum install postfix I've noticed there is already available an rpm version for the OS but I would like to compile my own 2.5 version, I've noticed compiling from source does not allow me to use the mail switcher to tell to the system I'm gonna use Postfix instead of Sendmail as the default MTA while this is possible when I use the "official" rpm version of the package. Now my question is this, would this be a problem? There is some specific procedure/best practice I should follow? Or once compiled and configured Postfix I can safely disable/uninstall sendmail?
I tried to setup a Postfix system as VM Guest, in a single file image. So I want to store the mails on another hosts throught NFS mount. I got various errors when Postfix try to write to the NFS share. Anyone knows what's the correct setup for this? like file permission on the NFS?
I am setting up a CentOS box as a NAT firewall that needs to also send mail. It needs to send this mail using an outside provider's SMTP. The provider requires SMTP over SSL. None of the machines inside the NAT will ever send mail except via the provider's SMTP nor will they ever receive mail except to local clients via the provider's IMAP servers.
So for the example the machine is TESTMACHINE. There is one internet facing ethernet port connected to a DSL modem via pppoe.
The SMTP it needs to send mail via is mail.host.net which requires SMTP over SSL (port 465) and username/password authentication.
The sendmail documentation is quite confusing on how to get this simple setup operating, so an example showing the appropriate changes to sendmail.mc and other require config files.
One of my mailservers running postfix has suddenly stopped sending mail and has been generating the following errors:
Jan 7 12:03:08 postfix/sendmail: warning: premature end-of-input on /usr/sbin/postdrop -r while reading input attribute name Jan 7 12:03:08 postfix/sendmail: fatal: root(0): unable to execute /usr/sbin/postdrop -r: Success
Things I have tried to fix this problem, but didn't work.
1) Stopped postfix, uninstalled and reinstalled.
2) Did a complete filesystem relabel with a touch /.autorelabel and reboot.
3) Did a restorecon -F -R on /etc/postfix, /var/spool/postfix and /usr/sbin/post*
Nothing above has worked and have no idea why with selinux disabled postfix works and with it on it fails.
I'm new here and I'm sure this question has been thrown around a lot but I just couldn't find a solution. I have a networking website I've setup and we need to send notification mails to our members depending on activity related to their profiles(messages, comments etc).We are hosting the site on Centos5.6 with VirtualMin and are using Postfix as our MTA. We also use google apps for email on the site. Heres the problem, the mails go through for some gmail users but more often than not, they end up in gmail,hotmail and yahoo spam.We've setup the appropriate SPF codes on the server, DKIM and rDNS works fine.v=spf1 ip4:xx.xx.xx.xx a mx include:_spf.google.com ~all Below is a sample email that goes directly into gmail spam. I've replaced the actual values with dummy text (Ip, Domain etc)
Delivered-To: firstname.lastname@example.org Received: by 10.143.165.5 with SMTP id s5cs223598wfo; Fri, 15 Apr 2011 08:38:22 -0700 (PDT)
I have postfix setup right now and it's relying mail to our Exchange server fine. What i would like to do though is have postfix save the email that gets passed through so that if a manager deletes an email, it's easy to look through by date and find the email he's looking for. Well, I'm thinking it would be a lot easier then having to need to pull out the backup tape and try to recover one email. Does anyone know whether I would be able to accomplish this?
I have configured mail server with postfix with dovecot with no encryption: When connecting with Thunderbird imap is working fine. When sending email from another domain to this domain again it is fine. But when I want to send mail from my domain to another it gives me error and this is /var/log/maillog: Quote:Jan 18 18:23:09 srv1 postfix/smtpd: NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from unknown[22.214.171.124]: 554 5.7.1 <Recipient email>: Relay access denied; from=<Sender> to=<Recipient email> proto=ESMTP helo=<[127.0.0.1]>
Having my Diploma Final Project on setting up a virtual mail server within Local Area Network (LAN) only.I had follow this how-to http://www.linuxmail.info/squirrelma...o-in-centos-5/ and complete up to squirrealmail web mail. I added two new user to try on sending and receiving mail. It works.I run CentOS on VMplayer. I using my laptop to do all the stuff, the laptop default OS is windows 7, i install VM player on it and run CentOS inside the VM Player.I want to do testing on Windows 7 side by installing Thunderbird email client program, i want to connect to mail server with SMTP, IMAP/POP3 using the email service. I have problem while setting up user account on Thunderbird, Thunderbird seems like cannot detect my CentOS mail server. How ?
Do i have to do any other configuration on CentOS ? any DNS ? port number for IMAP,POP3 or SMTP ?
Two exchange servers internally. One is setup for example.com (192.168.1.10) and the other is setup for example2.com (192.168.1.20) Both are behind a single public IP.
I want to use postfix to sit in front of the two exchange servers. Postfix will accept mail for both domains and relay to the appropriate server. I have postfix installed with only defaults at this point.
I'm running SUSE linux Server version 11. I want to configure mail server with postfix & cyrus-imap. For that, i have read many documents in Internet by i met issues. I'm running DNS in this server & it's ok Now I cannont send mail through command line.
I'm running a Debian LAMP server and I am adding postfix. The initial config is working and I can send and receive mail both locally and over the WAN. The problem is that I cannot get mail delivered to the user's home directory using Maildir/. I have set the:home_mailbox = Maildir/ parameter in main.cf but mail still goes to /var/mail after Postfix reload. The system is now using Maildir/ instead of mbox but in /var/mail. I really want to get mail into the user's home directory.
I have a lightweight admin background, but good enough to set up most servers. I have switched from sendmail to postfix for the first time, but I keep going around in circles on the following. In sendmail, I used to maintain a table (mailertable) where I would redirect email like this
I happily mapped any incoming email address of any valid hosted domain either to go out to it's final destination via smtp, or if the person has a local mailbox, it delivered locally. Any errors could be forced, and a catch-all for the domain could be directed also.
I've struggled with virtual hosts and transport and a combination of the two to come up with the same result for postfix. I have this feeling I'm missing something really simple, or I am not 'getting it' when I'm doing something postfixy and I still have sendmaily expectations. right path so I will at least know I'm pointing in the right direction and working with the right files to achieve my aims? Postfix is so amazingly powerful and flexible, I'm having trouble figuring this bit out.
I have this feeling I just need a calm hand on my shoulder, a friendly smile and a hand pointing me the right way..
