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.
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.
I have a Linux server that has local mail service. There are few user accounts on this server. User may send the mail to each other but that only restrict to LAN environment only.
For example, I may
# mail user1
To send mail to user1. User are not able to send mail to public. Some service like hylafax using this local mail service to send notification of fax status.
I don't want to manage and maintain local mail service anymore. I have subscribed a package from ISP to host a public domain of my own. I wish to have my hylafax service to able to send the notification mails to public mail server, is that possible to do it? It is great if all mails that send to local mail server may forward to public mail server. That makes the local mail service serve mail forward only.
I already have sendmail dovecot and roundcube webmail in my linux centos 5.6Problem is that i want to change mailbox format mbox to maildir because maildir is faster and stable.So i search about this and i see sendmail doesnt save in maildir format.Is there any way to change sendmail save format mbox to maildir.Or do u have any idea for it.
(We are running CyrusIMAP v2.3.16 on Slackware 13.1)The Problem:A user deleted a HUGE public Folder (>10000 Messages, >250 Subfolders), and now the Folder is in his "Trash" folder.Besides the obvious "Why did he have the access rights to do so in the first place??" question, I am honestly at a loss as to how the user did it:Trying to copy it back using Thunderbird failed utterly, TB crashes, or copies only a part, or nothing at all... (Tried 3.x on Windows and Linux Clients)So now I'm searching for a way to copy the folder back serverside.But web and manpages seem to offer few help:I don't want to move the folder to another partition, nor do I want to reconstruct or restore any corrupted data...All I want is to copy the folder from "user/USERNAME/Trash/HERE" back to "shared/archive/HERE".
I am using webmin for my daily tasks. I have fedora 13, whenever I click on ''Sendmail M4 Configuration'' or Outgoing Addresses (generics)'' I get the following error message
The Sendmail M4 configuration base directory /usr/share/sendmail-cf was not found on your system, or is not the correct directory. Maybe it has not been installed (common for packaged installs of Sendmail), or the module config is incorrect. I read documentation at sendmail.org, it seems that structure of directories for send mail has been changed in version sendmail-8.1.4 shipped with FC13. In webmin config module we have
Sendmail M4 base directory = /usr/share/sendmail-cf
which is not there. I did a locate / sendmail-cf on the command line, it finds nothing
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 recently modified sendmail.cf to use a third party SMTP server to send emails. It works great. But when I run sendmail from the command line, I have to specify the -C flag and force feed it the location of my sendmail.cf, or else it doesn't work.
So in other words, the following works great:
However, if I don't specify the -C flag, sendmail doesn't consider what's in the sendmail.cf and barfs:
I don't run sendmail as a daemon. I'm only using it to send emails. I know my modifications of sendmail.cf are correct because it works perfectly when I use the -C flag. I searched my disk to see if I could find another sendmail.cf on the machine and only the one in /etc/mail came up.
Why sendmail is not reading my sendmail.cf?
I'm running Sendmail version 8.14.2 on Fedora Core 8.
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.
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:
I need to check my mailboxes for errors. My imapd has permanent errors, it periodically crashes. I think that the problem will be with some errors which was created when I converted my previous maildirs to mailboxes.
It is possible to check the integrity of these mailboxes with some command or script?
