Ubuntu Servers :: Postfix Relay Mail For Local Users?

Mar 1, 2011

I have a mail server running Postfix and the problem I'm running into is that when trying to send mail, I get a "relay access denied" error.Inside my main.cf, I did not specify 'smtpd_recipient_restrictions' so by default, the variable is:

smtpd_recipient_restrictions = permit_mynetworks, reject_unauth_destination
The 'mynetworks' variable looks like this:

Server :: Postfix Sends Mail To SPAM In Gemail (CentOS)?

Apr 16, 2011

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: my.email@gmail.com
Received: by with SMTP id s5cs223598wfo;

Sep 19, 2010

I need help with header_check filter on postfix. In the last week mail users received a spam e-mail without subject line and I don't know what is the way to reject this. This is the example of message header:

From: "example@example.com"

To: <example@example.com>

I want to reject e-mails that don't have Subject line

Ubuntu Servers :: Postfix Spam 'from' Address Query?

May 17, 2011

Very new to Ubuntu and Linux so this may be a simple one. I've recently setup an Ubuntu Server 10.04 box as a mail relay running Postfix and Amavisd-new (Spamassassin & ClamAV) and this has been working really well. I started to get a few emails through today with the following header[URL]..(removed domain name) The name's always in quotes and random. The fqdn is that which I configured in postfix as $myhostname. I can't figure out how this address is being used. This box is only used for incoming mail and acts as a relay to Exchange. Exchange doesn't send out through it. The only thing that may be going outwards is bounced messages from Exchange which are almost exclusively to linkedin.

The fqdn isn't public. This box isn't even part of our internal domain, it's just named that way with manual DNS added. Anyone seen this before? Will this header have been part of the message when it arrives at postfix or could this have been added by postfix itself?

Fedora Servers :: Postfix With System Users

Oct 28, 2009

Alright I have read through and tried many different tutorials but a VAST majority of them are with virtual users. This is my own personal email server so virtual users is unneccessary when I can just use the users personal mailbox.

My postfix main.cf there are 2 things I am unsure of. 1) For system users which local_recipiant_maps do i use? 2) What should mynetworks be?As I have been testing it out through telnet I can send mail but it doesnt get to my test email (a gmail account) and when i try to send an email locally it seems that everything works fine but the mail doesnt get there, and the error i am getting is that it cant find the user.

Ubuntu Servers :: Outgoing Mail ALWAYS Flagged As Spam

Mar 2, 2010

I've got a web server that's hosting a few sites, and there are a few WordPress instances with these sites. With Wordpress, whenever a user registers with the site, they receive an email.With my server, it sends mail via Sendmail. This is all fine and good, except no matter what, it's flagged as spam. Is there any way to correct this?Keep in mind that this isn't a mail server, and the only reason the server ever sends mail is for new wordpress users and password resets.

Fedora Servers :: Force Php Mail() Through Postfix + Auth?

Mar 8, 2011

I'm a bit lost with the PHP/Sendmail configuration, maybe somebody could help me getting back on the right track. Following situation:


* accepts smtp on port 25 but from his own domains. Some policy and spamchecks through amavisd are made.

* accepts submission on port 587 and 465 from authenticated users only. Quota and spamchecks prevent outgoing spam.

So I'm enforcing a very strong outgoing spam-policy but the users are still able to use the php mail() function to send spam through the /usr/sbin/sendmail command.
My users have access to their own php.ini so my idea was to somehow enforce the delivery through the local postfix on port 587 or 465 and just let them enter their user/pass in their php.ini. (I suppose, their might be a cleaner-solution ).

Unfortunately, my configurations like smtp_host, port, user etc. are getting ignored if the sendmail_path line is active. But if I comment this line out, php just uses the default, which is the same as configured in the sendmail_path line - so it's active whether i use the line or not (setting it to an invalid command breaks the mail() function completely).

how can I enforce my anti-spam policy on the php mail() command?For my ssh users I just blocked the outgoing connection to localhost on port 25 which seems to work so far, but somehow the postfix-sendmail-wrapper just ignores this.

Server :: Configure Postfix To Relay Mail To Multiple Internal Mail Servers With Different Domains?

Two exchange servers internally. One is setup for example.com ( and the other is setup for example2.com ( 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.

Fedora Servers :: Unable To Connect Apache / Postfix And Php Mail Script

Aug 12, 2009

I installed FC10, and configured everything to work with my static IP address [URL]. As far as email goes everything works except for the php script on my website. This script worked fine on my previous install, and it appears to actually submit the email as shown in the maillog:

Aug 12 14:21:02 myhome postfix/pickup[27581]: 37406BFDD9: uid=48 from=<apache>
Aug 12 14:21:02 myhome postfix/cleanup[27783]: 37406BFDD9: message-id=<20090812192102.37406BFDD9@www.myhome.com>


I also created the following php script to test

(mail ("test@myhome","Test message","this is a test"))

And I was able to send successfully with this script with the only difference being it was sent by root rather than apache. This leads me to believe it's some sort of rights issue with the apache user. I wouldn't be surprised is SELinux was behind it all. I spent days and days after installing wordpress trying to get it to connect to mysql, and that turned out to be a SELinux issue.

i am trying to set up a mail server that will support users in a LAN in my school. I am using postfix on a Mandrakelinux distro.

I can send mail when I am root to the other user on my (same) machine both when in command line (mail command) and on Graphical mail client (Kmail ) but the user (sam) cannot send mail to the root account on either interfaces.

I followed the postfix configuration settings on John_Wiley_-_Redhat_Linux_Networking_and_System_Administration_3rd_Edition.

Ubuntu Servers :: Postfix Relay - Exchange Sends The Mail Instead Giving Recipient Mail A Valid Reverse DNS Lookup

Jan 12, 2011

The scenario: We have an external server that runs HTTP/DB servers for out shop system. Then, there's our local, in-house infrastructure that runs a.. yeah... Exchange 2010. The shop system on the external server needs to send mails to customers (order confirmations, invoices, etc.). seing as sending them directly through the local MTA (Postfix) would cause mail delivery problems because of reverse DNS issues, i've set the Postfix MTA to act as a satellite to our in-house Exchange Server, so the Exchange sends the mail instead, giving recipient mail servers a valid reverse DNS lookup.

Now, mails sent by the (proprietary, uneditable) shop system are relayed correctly and sent to the target e-mail address. My problem is: Mails not sent by the shop system, but by our own PHP scripts which run on that same external servers, are NOT relayed properly. So the Exchange is fine with the mails sent by the shop system, but not the mails sent by our scripts. This is what i get in the mail.log: The successfully relayed mail sent by the shop system:

Ubuntu Servers :: Postfix Mail Goes In Junkmail?

Mar 15, 2010

I use Ubuntu Server 9.10 64bit

at first, sendmail was installed and everything was working great. all the email sent from forum and webform I host as been sent correctly in the reception box of the recipient. But I want postfix as MTA to do my delivery to all my virtual domain I host.

when sendmail is uninstalled and postfix installed and all services configured(php included) and restarted(apache included), when I send a email from command line or from web form, the email goes in junk mail for some ISP email address and for gmail and the email did'nt show at all for hotmail. but email sent from forum (phpbb) still goes in reception box like normal email do.

I tried do change the headers, who was working with sendmail, of the email sent from web form without success.

so I tried to uninstall postfix and reinstall sendmail, restarted all service and every thing was back to normal... email sent goes in reception box.

I tried it twice.... sendmail, postfix, sendmail, postfix and now back to sendmail for a working solution until I get postfix working.

I tried with spf entry in my dns, I tried allowed icmp packet from outside with iptables, I tried many different headers for my email. My ip is not blacklisted anywhere.

Ubuntu Servers :: Postfix - Stop All Users From Getting Mailbox?

Mar 13, 2011

I'm just getting started with postfix for the first time (using courier pop) and everything is working well. However I can't seem to figure out how to only allow some system users to have mailboxes?

For example I have a few accounts which are FTP only accounts but they still have mailboxes under postfix? Is there any way to tell postfix the accounts that I actually want mailboxes for?

Also on a side note, I notice that mail seems to be stored under the user's home directory. I'm scared they may accidentally delete them.
