OpenSUSE Network :: Postfix Rejects Every Email Try To Receive By Using Fetchmail?

Jan 9, 2010

I upgraded my home server from openSUSE 10.3 to 11.2. From that day, postfix rejects every email I try to receive by using fetchmail. The main.cf file was unchanged after the upgrade, postfix starts correctly, but it does not accepts emails! The errors I receive are:

NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from localhost[::1]: 504 5.5.2 <localhost>: Helo command rejected: need fully-qualified hostname; from=<> to=<correctuser@somedomain.com> proto=SMTP helo=

Server :: Setting Up A Postfix Mail On Ubuntu?

Apr 16, 2011

how the whole mail server thing works, and what software handles what job. From my understanding POP3 and IMAP are protocols to pull email from a mail server, and SMTP is used to push email to a server. There are many programs that I've seen involved with creating a mail server, but I'm trying to use just Postfix. Postfix can send and receive email right?

My server runs in my basement and runs Ubuntu Server 10.10. It uses Cherokee as its web server, and it runs several other servers as well (SSH, FTP, Git, etc). My goal is to set up a mail server so that websites I run such as a Redmine or a web forum can send emails to people (e.g. an activation email for a user registering on a forum).

Anyway, I set up postfix, and now my server can receive email. I've been able to send an email from my Gmail address to drew@minipenguin.com (my server), and it works. However, if I try to send email from drew@minipenguin.com to my Gmail, it never goes through. I don't care about receiving email, as my only goal is to be able to send it.

Server :: Postfix Software - Setting Through Which Implement This?

Feb 20, 2011

I have a very peculiar issue with Postfix. lets say we have three users as user a ,user b ,user c . user a reports to user b ,user b reports to user c .Now if user a sends an email to user x then a policy is defined such that all his his email will be sent to user b not to user x. Is there any setting in postfix through which we can implement this

Server :: Setting Up Postfix For Outgoing Mail?

Jul 27, 2011

I'm setting up a server and trying to make it *very* secure. Before I configured my web stack, I was about to install some security packages, Tiger and Samhain, but these packages wanted to install sendmail so that they can send outgoing notifications. From the reading I've been doing, I believe I want postfix instead of sendmail. It is my (perhaps mistaken) belief that installing postfix first will prevent them from installing this sendmail I do not want.

I want to install postfix with the following goals in mind:

* let PHP scripts send mail using the mail function.

* various system notification functions (cron, etc.) will be able to send their emails

* emails destined for root@localhost will be redirected to admin@mydomain.com

* let tiger and/or samhain send their notification emails

* NO INCOMING OR LOCAL MAIL IS PERMITTED. Because mail for my domain is handled by google apps, nobody will be checking mail on this server. Also, this server has very limited disk space. It is therefore very important that we don't have mail accumulating in boxes that will never be checked.

* no unnecessary ports, services, or cron jobs are running.

I've been reading a variety of pages that describe postfix setup on Ubuntu but these articles are imprecise, incomplete, and describe installation of things I don't want like POP/IMAP/etc.

There's also one final wrinkle. I will be setting up postfix to send via Amazon SES.

Server :: Setting Up Postfix To Use Multiple IP Addresses?

Apr 17, 2011

I set-up his mail server for him with Postfix but what he wants I have no idea how to do.

Essentially he wants it so that the mail gateway IP corresponds with the dedicated IP of the domain and I have no idea how to accomplish this.

I found some documentation on the web saying that the fix for this was to run multiple instances of Postfix which I tried doing but each time I try to start the second instance I get the error that postfix is already running.

There has to be an elegant way to make this happen, I really hate to tell a client something can't be done even though the concept is a bit pointless, IMHO. I am hoping I can get some feedback here on if this can be done and if it can the easiest way for me to accomplish doing it.

Here is some of the config files (example.com has been put in place of the actual domain names and the ip of is in place of the actual IPs

[root@youronlinehosting ~]# cat /etc/postfix/transport
example.com smtp:
example.com smtp:
example.com smtp:

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.

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?

CentOS 5 :: Postfix Mail Server Will Not Start Tried To Change Postfix Smtp Port?

Oct 4, 2010

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

Server :: Updated Postfix Not Running After Transferring Over Users From Older Postfix?

Feb 25, 2011

I recently moved over user from an old box running postfix(v 2.0.16) over to rhel 6 running postfix (v mail_version = 2.6.6). ive tried to make sure all the files are of correct permissions and that the main.cf file is configured corectly. However there is something wrong as when i run postfix: service postfix server i get no error but when checking the status:service postfix status i get: master dead but pid file exists Looking into /var/log/mailog i find this line being the issue:

Feb 25 16:24:39 puny1 postfix/master[3517]: fatal: fifo_listen: create fifo public/pickup: Permission denied

I gather this is a file permission issue and ive tried to make sure the public folder in /var/spool/postfix is correctly set but still no avail.

Programming :: Conversion From Infix To Postfix And Compilation Of Postfix For Eval

May 11, 2010

I was trying to write a graph plotting program with c++. I need to convert the infix expression from user to postfix expression for quick evaluation. However, the evaluation of postfix is kind of interpreted, and thus kind of slow for evaluating huge number of values. Say if I plot an implicit function the penalty is quite huge. Is there a way that I can compile the infix expression from my running graph plotting application for high speed evaluation.

CentOS 5 :: Switch From The Default Sendmail To Postfix Doing A Yum Install Postfix On 5.2

Dec 12, 2008

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?

Software :: Using Fetchmail To Store In Files Only?

Jan 30, 2010

I need to transfer some email off of an IMAP server. But there will not be an MTA available to make the transfer to at the time I need to do it. I'm looking for an option to configure fetchmail so that it merely stores each piece of email into a separate file in a designated directory.

If it wants to make a complex path of more than one directory layer, that's OK. Or all the mail can be in one directory.

If a different program other than fetchmail would be better for this kind of purpose, that, too, is OK ... provided that program has the option to keep all mail on the IMAP server it fetches from.

Slackware :: Fetchmail - Sendmail - Aliases ?

Sep 8, 2010

Fetchmail +sendmail played nice together, until I installed hylafax, and added an alias it requires. I just ran the usual makemap command on aliases to make aliases.db, and that's there the trouble began. Fetchmail appeared to hang, at any email account that had email in it, at the RCPT stage. I finally read the warning at the top of /etc/mail/aliases that says to run newaliases.
