I am aware that there is a qmail-ldap package to have ldap back end for qmail. But I need only user authentication for qmail through ldap (not the backend; i.e still keeping Mysql as the database). I am pretty new to mail server configuration. I have just configured a (q)mail server (which is currently my sand box) and am able send and receive emails. I am planning to add ldap authentication (just that) to it. Can anyone point me to the right direction?
I am using sendmail-8.13 & procmail as an MDA. Now as our mail users are increasing I need to put up mailbox quota limit for every user. I have gone through the search engine but could not found any effective help to configure mailbox quota with sendmail & procmail.
So my question is, where do I put .procmailrc? An examples I found on the net has the procmailrc in the users mail directory, but there are no user mail directories on the sendmail server. It is used purely to relay mail to the Exchange server.
I have been trying to get procmail working on CentOS 5.2. I don't need anything fancy, just an auto reply for a "noreply@" account. Looking at the sendmail configuration, it appears procmail is the MDA. I have looked at many different tutorials and how-tos, but most are old, and/or the locations/paths and setups are markedly different from the defaults on my system. Can anyone recommend a good CentOS-based tutorial on Procmail w/ recipes? (I have an RHEL book and it's no help either.) Thank you for your time and consideration.
I have my .procmailrc file set up to pipe mail to a simple php script I've written. The only thing the script does at this point is echo back a "hello" message. However, procmail does not execute the script properly.
Here's my script (/home/webs/site.com/scripts/echo.php):
I am trying to set up mutt with fetchmail and procmail on server space that's not mine. I have access to /home/myusername but not to /var/spool/myusername. Everything seems to work well, but I have no idea where fetchmail (or procmail) is dropping off my mail.
Is it possible to have procmail make a decision based on the content of a attachment? My situation is the following, I dailty receive a email from a server on which a backup job of a Progress database is run. This job e-mails the results of the backup in an attachment, based on the result I would like to change the header of the message stating that the backup finished successfully or not.
We use procmail to reformat and filter email messages sent from many lead capture websites where the clients enter their reply email address manually.When we receive the message at our application we send a welcome email, and receive back the Undeliverable Email message where the clients entries are invalid, but I would like to be able to kill messages with undeliverable email addresses on our mail server before they are delivered to our application.I have found discussions on filtering masqueraded addresses, but since the IP of the sending system is not related to the entered client's email address, this does not appear to help. I would think that it should be able to query the email server to identify if the address is valid.
Built an MTA/LDA Slackware Server and seperate MDA (Dovecot 2.2) Slackware Server. Used the slackwiki Sendmail TLS SMTP-AUTH guide for the MTA/LDA Server.
http://www.slackwiki.org/index.php?t...TH&redirect=no The ../cf/cf/sendmail-slackware-tls-sasl.mc config file has Procmail sorting as: FEATURE(`local_procmail',`',`procmail -t -Y -a $h -d $u')dnl
I don't understand the arguments ($), but know the -Y forces mbox. The /var/mail directory is hardlinked to where ever the spool directory is. I want the Dovecot MDA server to use NFS or UNFS to grab user's mail from the MTA/LDA Server. Problem is the hardlink. Can't nfs share a hardlinked directory.
Is there a way to change the MTA sendmail mc config file above to have LDA promail send to /home/mail, so I can nfs that directory? And preferably in MAILDIR format? BTW: I can't find any procmailrc config file on this Slackware Server. I should have all the settings in my /etc/mail/sendmail.cf config.
One of our client having issue with the qmail. The issue is if any one send email to firstname.lastname@example.org (email@example.com the email address which is not exist) it should send failure notification i.e."email does not exist" to the sender. The qmail server is not notifying that email address does not exist.
I have Postfix and Spamassassin setup on Ubuntu Server 9.10. The mail is working perfectly. Spamassassin is correctly marking messages as spam. My problem is with the milter and procmail. On past servers I was able to reject spam based on score via the spamass-milter. For whatever reason I can not get it to work. I have also tried with procmail, again, it does not work. Here are the relative lines in their respective config files:
is qmail server running in the secondary office and it was working fine. yesterday qmail suffered some problem.i came to know about the problem today.now after troubleshooting and looking into the server, the qmailclt stat commands shows that all services are working and there is nothing going crazy in the server. The maillog is showing errors which i am pasting here for the convienance.
we have qmail server installed on rhl 9. it was working perfectly fine for last 1 year. suddenly it stopped accepting emails from internet. when i telnet on port 25 it takes about 90 secs to show the SMTP ready state.I have tried many things
1. stopped Reverse DNS Lookup by adding -H to qmail-smtpd/run file 2. stopped spamassing and AV 3. reverified DNS server settings in resolv.conf 4. dig is resolving dns query properly.
i also observed that when i do telnet to telnet localhost 25 response is very quick
but when i do telnet local_server_IP_address 25 it takes aprx 90 secs to show me SMTP ready messege.
can someone shed some light on this as what should i do next to rectify this problem..
I have had webmin running previously but i just recently installed Unbuntu server and i am now trying to install webmin. after typing this to install webmin sudo apt-get install webmin it started doing its thing and then it halts.
Giving me the following message: "Package webmin is not available, but is referred to by another package. this may mean that the package is missing, had been obsoleted , or is only available from another source."
The first thing i did after installing webmin was edit the sources.list
Then i tpyed sudo nano sources.list I uncommented everything with "deb" in front of it
I also uncommented
I then typed this sudo wget [url]
After getting that i typed this apt-get install perl libnet-ssleay-perl openssl libauthen-pam-perl libpam-runtime libio-pty-perl libmd5-perl
I encountered a a dependency issue when trying to install Webmin on Ubuntu Server Edition 10.04 Beta1.
When you try to install webmin, libmd5-perl is not available in any of the lucid repositories:
I resolved the dependency prob by adding the following repository to my /etc/apt/sources.list: deb [url]
Then I did a sudo apt-get update then sudo apt-get install and libmd5-perl installed fine along with webadmin. BTW. I got a GPG error when doing a apt=get update because I did not import the public key for the debian repos I used to get libdm5-perl, which doesn't matter to me as I commented out the repos once I got libmd5-perl installed.
