Here I've sort a problem, dealing with swatch.I wonder why my swatch configuration can't sending an email notification to my mail, which I mean to sent the output file into email.Swatch running like a charm on my system and success to give the log files for the file that swatch monitoring..here's my output
Code: root@ubuntusecurity:/home/andrewraharjo# swatch -c /root/.swatchrc -t /var/log/auth.log *** swatch version 3.2.3 (pid:6773) started at Mon Nov 29 19:33:39 WIT 2010
Debian 5, apache 2.2 I've got Apache up and hosting multiple sites. Each site will have a php contact me page that will simply dump an email to a fixed address. What program should i be using to accomplish this? I've used nullmailer before but that assumes you have a fixed smarthost somewhere which I don't.
I've not been having any luck at all finding the answer to this, so thought I'd ask here: is there any way to get my servers to send an email when someone logs in through SFTP? I was able to get that to work with SSH using a simple bit of script in /etc/profile, but I can't find anything on Google about doing that with SFTP at all.
The OpenSSH version on my server is 5.2p1 running on FreeBSD 8.0. Any way to get the server to execute any command on SFTP login will be enough for me to get this set up.
I have users [URL] unable to send email to [URL]. [URL] user also unable to send email to [URL]. But both email addresses are fine as they can receive email from others or from [URL] and [URL]. I able to telnet mail server 110 and 25, no problem. Version: ESMTP Sendmail 8.12.10

I've gotten myself involved in the Nagios monitoring tools and somewhat managed to configure the Nagios host, but I'm still having some issues with the email notifications.
From what I've read/researched, one of the favourite methods to get the email notification up is by using sendmail/postfix. I've went through it and learned that they are MTAs. What I actually needed is just a basic email client, and I would email the notices directly to an email address over the internet. Thus, I wont be needing something as complex like sendmail/postfix.
I gotten my hands on "Nail mail". I've successfully configured it to be able to send emails from my linux machine over the internet. However, when I copied the same command lines to nagios's contact.cfg, it did not work.
This is the command line that I'm using. Let me explain what I'm trying to achieve below. Firstly, I would save all the text notifications into a text file(green), and then email it out. The problem is NailMail command (red) does not work on Nagios,but the command line works in the terminal command on my Nagios account. Has anyone attempted using Nail mail with Nagios?
I have installed Joomla on an Ubuntu 10.04 Server pc. The Ubuntu server is connected to my Novell NetWare network via static IP. I need the Ubuntu server to send mail to my mail server through smtp, my entire network has static IP's. The Ubuntu server does not need to receive mail only send, I have found that I could try use sendmail, postfix or exim4. I tried Exim4 but I am battling with the setup. For my situation what would be the best to use? What config's are most important to set?
I've come across a strange issue where any email address that I email with mail returns an error "Bad Address"

How can I send email outside my LAN using postfix? Actually, I can received email from outside like yahoo. hotmail etc.. But when I am trying to send outside in my mail server here is the error I got..

(I forgot what is the website I used to check if my ISP port 25 is block) I try already to used in my relayhost the [URL] but the email I sent still bouncing..But I remember last time when I was installed Hmailserver in my Win2K3 machine I sent email outside but I cannot received..
I'm experimenting with with mail-servers now and I'm trying to configure postfix to send emails from one email(pop3 is gmail) to any email outside the local network. Server is Ubuntu 10.10 with the last updates.
In my Windows environment, I use email client such as Microsoft Outlook to connect to our email server to send email with the following configuration:
Incoming server (POP3): 995 - (requires with SSL) Outgoing server (SMTP): 465 - (use encrypted connection SSL)
And the mail server requires user ID login and password.how do I setup a text command based email client in my Linux (Centos 5.1) to send out email through the existing email server above, which is in another machine? The email client has to be text command based because I need to use command line to send notification email from anothar application installed in my Linux (Centos 5.1) Since the email client will only be used to send email notification, I don't require setting up of an email server in my linux.
I'm attempting to send email used a textbook PHP application. The application fails to send an email.Do I need to setup an email server to get the ap to work?Right now, I'm getting email through Kontact via my web host, Yahoo mail and Google mail.
I want to create a shell script that generates a file and then sends it via email from my Ubuntu desktop by using my Exchange 2003 Server which is on a separate windows machine on my network. I do not have an smtp server set-up so that is one of the reasons I want to go this route. The other is because I will be able to sync the emails sent from the exchange server.
what do I need to change in postfix/ dns to send email to one one of the email server hosted by 1and1.
I'm using zenoss to monitor system/ network and devices. I wanted to setup email notification , so I installed postfix. All works fine when I use my private account on yahoo or hotmail. but when I specify email account that is hosted by 1and1 I receive error 421. "

A question that I've asked myself (and google) many times but never got to an answer.Scenario:ServerA) postfix Primary MXServerB) postfix Backup MXAccording to the rfc a source mailserver can decide where to send email e.g.send an email to backup even is primary is reachable up and running.So my questions are: 1) how do I (live I mean) replicate messages arrived on any server to the other?2) How do I synchronise sent messages, message deletion, folder creation/deletion.Imapsync goes half way towards the solution but it needs to be run manually one off and you must specify source and destination.All I wanted really is a user to be able to use either server without having to worry about primary/secondary or what so ever.
I'm not trying to setup a email server. ;) Firewall is set to disabled. SELinux is set to disabled.. How can i configure (which file?) the server to be able to send email out? When I try "mail -s testmail myemail@[URL]" and enter some text and then CTRL+D.. and return, I get command prompt again..
Is there a way of allowing only certain domain to send e-mails to certain specific e-mail address. I am using Sendmail, and I have an alias which translate to certain members of staff within my organization. I don't expect e-mails from outside our domain to be sent to this alias e-mail address.
I have recently setup a new mail server and have simulated sending and receiving on the new email server. The new email server will replace the primary one.I would like to setup the new email server in parallel with the existing one.This way i can observe issues that might occur and be aware of what could go wrong. I want to received mail to be delivered to both mail servers at the same time.I would like to use postfix, exim i find a bit to difficult to understand.I have thought of using transport maps, the only problem is that you can only forward mail to one server at a time using transport maps.I think recipient_bcc_maps and sender_bcc_maps could work, i would just like ideas of how i can do this.
I'm trying to configure postfix so smart daemon can send out notifications emails. My system will need to send emails to a mail server that is on the same local network. I have not had much luck in getting this to work, and am confused on what I need to setup to do this and how to set it up. Does my system need to be apart of the same domain as the mail server? If so, how do I do this? Is there any restrictions sending emails from the command line as the root user? Do I need to configure a relayhost?
Basically all I need to do is send emails to a local mail server, i.e. a mail server on the same local network. I do not need to receive emails. I am rather clueless as to how to set this all up, and what I need for this basic email functionality. I have read and tried many postfix configuration tutorials, but when I try to send out a test email to a email address on the local network mail server I always get "Connection refused" to the server and deferred or bounced status on my test email.
I'm trying to write a script that will continuously ping a server and then send out an email when the server is down, and then when it is back up. Then, continuing with monitoring. I would like to not run this in cron, because I don't want to script to run with multiple instances.
For example, Ping a server every minute. -If successful, do nothing. -If failed to ping, then send out email stating that server is down. -Once ping is successful, then send out email stating that server is up.
I only want it to send an email once after a failure, so the end user isn't get an email every minute that it fails. Once it is successful, then send the email (one time), stating that the server is up. Then, continue to ping and if fails again, repeat the process.
My company email server has been working flawlessly for the last 5+ years. Recently, one of our clients put their email server behind a firewall (an assumption on my part; details below). Ever since, email sent from within the company (192.168.xxx.xxx internal address; all computers and server is behind a NAT firewall [Netgear FVX538]) is either being sent to the client after some delay (if email is sent using Outlook) or is being deferred until the messages expire (Thunderbird, Squirrelmail, etc.). Email sent to the client from anywhere outside the company (using Thunderbird, Outlook or any other email client) is also delivered without any problems (usually after a short delay).
All other emails to the World are being sent without any problems at all (both inside and outside the company; using any email client or webmail). I did contact the client's postmaster, but the client, being a large government agency, will probably not address the problem (if it is on their side) anytime soon. I am not sure if I can do anything from my end to solve the problem. Ever since the problem with the client began, I added two statements to the postfix configuration file (smtp_pix_workaround_delay_time = 20s and smtp_pix_workaround_threshold_time = 0s); this seemed to a bit - it reduced the delay for emails sent via Outlook to a few minutes (as opposed to 30+ minutes); emails sent using Thunderbird/webmail are still being deferred.
Server details: Dual quad-core processor machine, 32 GB RAM, dual 1 gbps network, running Fedora 14 (64-bit; loosely modeled along the lines of Perfect Server (with ISPConfig2) as described on the howtoforge website). Running Postfix (v. 2.7.1), Dovecot (v. 2.0.9).
I emailed the client's postmaster suggesting they disable smtp fixup. But still, what bothers me now is that Outlook works (both within and outside the company) while Thunderbird, webmail, etc. (used by ~90% of the users) do not. In addition, all email clients from outside the company can send email (authenticated via the company server) to the client without any problems. Is there anything I can do on my end to make non-Outlook clients work within the company (webmail is hosted on the company server; so, it would have an internal address as well)?
I just set up a new email server on Debian Lenny. It's Postfix for MTA and Dovecot for IMAPS server. I use Dovecot for authentication. I have two UNIX users on the system (except root), one was added before the installation of Postfix and Dovecot. I'm not doing any virtual things, just plain UNIX users and one domain on a dynamic IP. The first user, "webadmin" can send and receive emails just fine through the server from my mail client.
Now I just added a new user, "scarleo", and it turns out I'm unable to send and receive emails with this account. If I log in (SSH) with scarleo I can use bash mail to send emails, works fine. scarleo can also receive emails from webadmin and can connect to Dovecot to read emails. However scarleo cannot send or receive to or from anyone outside the server from my mail client. I have restarted both Postfix and Dovecot after adding the user. Do I have to do something else to make this account work like webadmin's?
A few relevant lines from mail.log: (I've modded my real IP) Code: Dec 7 17:44:42 homer dovecot: imap-login: Login: user=<scarleo>, method=PLAIN, rip=220.127.116.11, lip=192.168.0.18, TLS Dec 7 17:44:42 homer dovecot: imap-login: Login: user=<webadmin>, method=PLAIN, rip=18.104.22.168, lip=192.168.0.18, TLS Dec 7 17:45:16 homer postfix/smtpd: connect from bredband.comhem.se[22.214.171.124] .....
i have a small issue, to make our network more secure, i now require outgoing email to require authentication. Now the problem..i have a automated mailer that does not have the option to authenticate. is there a way to allow a certain email address or the local network to send out without authentication? If i cannot do this for a single email user to allow them through with authentication, how would i remove the authentication paramaters in the postfix smtp..
