Server :: Postfix Configuration: How To Restrict Use Of CC

Jan 17, 2011

I have configured postfix on my server.

telnet 25
mail from:
rcpt to:


When I run this test, as expected, the email is delivered to validuser. However, postfix also delivers it to user1 and user2 despite the fact that the sender does not belong to my domain. I have implemented client, helo and recipient restrictions as below. How do I prevent the malicious use of CC as described here?

Server :: Postfix Configuration To Split Mail Between Apps On Same Host?

Jul 19, 2010

I have an OpenSuse 11.2 system that is running 2 BBS systems independently, both of which are capable of receiving smtp mail on prot 25. What I would like to do is set up Postfix on the OpenSuse OS to receive all mail for both those domains and then send the relevant mail to the correct BBS. I would therefore have Postfix listening on Port 25 External and the 2 BBS applications listening on different ports on the localhost address. At least that is the plan.

how to do this. I want to do it and still make sure Postfix is secure and not accidentally open up any nasty relay holes etc etc.

Debian Configuration :: Tests And Playing Around With Postfix In A Test Squeeze Server?

Feb 15, 2011

I'm doing some tests and playing around with postfix in a test squeeze server. What I want to achieve is a postfix mail server using ports 465 and 587 with smtp authentication to send mails. I followed this howto: [URL].. and I'm using a php script with pear functions to test sending emails to a gmail test account of mine. This is the script:

require_once "Mail.php";
$from = "Webmaster <webmaster@server>";
$to = "My Name <>";
$subject = "This is sent with pear as a test";
$body = "This is the body of the message";

OpenSUSE Network :: Mail Server Configuration - Postfix To Send Incoming Emails To A Php Script Or Perl

Aug 13, 2010

I have a server with a domain running and im trying to resolve the mail server but i can't see where to start. I use OpenSuse 11.2. Basically, for starting, i want postfix to send incoming emails to a php script or perl. for outgoing emails i guess that i could use php mail function and i will see what else to have. I configured the dns. I do a dig.mydomain.tld MX and i get the following:

mydomain.tld3600INMX0 mail.mydomain.tld
mail.mydomain.tld 3600INAmyNumericalIp

So now my system is receiving MX content but i dont know what to do.

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 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 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.

Debian Configuration :: Restrict FTP Access To User's Home Directory Only

Jan 18, 2011

2 of us have been googling all morning trying to find out how we can restrict ftp logins to their own home directories only but nothing we've found so far has worked. We've tweaked sshd_config so that they default to their home directory but they are able to navigate up/across/down to everything. This is a "straight-out-of-the-box" debian 5.0.5 Netinst.

Ubuntu :: Postfix Smtp Configuration

May 13, 2010

I'm running Postfix primarily as a local email server. There is no email coming in from other machines, and there are no other machines using it to send mail. But I'd like it to be able to send mail. I use Evolution for my normal email stuff, and it's configured to send mail to my ISP's smtp server, and that's working fine. But I occasionally send mail from the command line, using the "mail" or "mutt" utilities. (Mutt because the standard mail doesn't support attachments.) These don't use Evolution's configuration, they depend upon whatever is listening to port 25 - and that's Postfix. So all I should need to do is to give Postfix the smtp server, user name, and password. My problem is that Postfix has voluminous documentation online, and I haven't been able to find this simple configuration in it.

Debian Configuration :: Postfix Bad IP Syntax Support

Apr 23, 2016

I have currently configured Postfix as an SMTP server. I would preferably not use a domain name in my email address, like so: myname@[]

I'm currently testing to see how other mail servers handle this kind of address. When I sent a mail with one one of my gmail accounts, I see that the mail gets rejected due to bad syntax.

It seems as though Google is giving me a RCPT TO address like so: myname@ However, the postfix server rejects this address with the following error:

501 5.1.3 Bad recipient address syntax

To my best knowledge the only way to have an IP address inside an email address with to write it as a domain literal [].

My question: how to configure postfix to accept myname@ as well?

I have put both [] and in "mydestination" and in "virtual_alias_domains".

It doesn't seem to work so far though.

Fedora Servers :: Recommended Postfix Configuration For SB?

Mar 27, 2009

I am building an email server in what I consider to be a 'small business'. I would say my Postfix mail server will house 300 mailboxes (Max). I have a decent server with enough RAM / disk space to run this email server however I don't know what the best way is to manage / configure the users mail boxes.

how to create a new user on the Linux server using 'adduser / useradd' and then setting their shell to /bin/nologin. This is because the mail user will never need to log into the shell of the mail server directly and can still populate email from their mailbox which is located in their /home/$user directory. Now many people I spoke with have advised me that this is a bad and cumbersome method of account administration.

I am running:

Postfix 2.5
Clamav v0.94.2
Amavisd-new 2.5.4
Dovecot 1.0.7
Spamassassin 3.2.5

Fedora Security :: X Server Restrict Via Xselinux Module

First of all I'm interested in examples of the use of this module (configuration files and what functions it perform). Also interesting to know whether some user's actions with XServer can be restricted via xselinux module (e.g. screenshot prohibition).

Server :: Disk Quota (Exceeded But Unable To Restrict)

Jun 17, 2010

I installed Diskquota on CentOS 5.1 machine. I enabled quota for some user with 1 GB as both hard and soft limits, Grace period is 0. Every this is working fine if we work from normal user's login say (user1 who is a system user). If he exceeds 1GB its will restrict that saying quota exceeded. But, If root user copies some 500MB files into his workspace, and change the ownership of those files using following command
chown user1.user1 * ( * is 500 MB files).

Then quota is exceeded and it is showed using:
repquota /home
user1 +- 2039960 997020 997020 none 298 0 0
Here its showing as some 2GB.
Soft limit is 951 MB.

So, my problem is restrict quota from all possible ways, i.e., even if root does some copying and change permissions, it must tell that disc quota exceeded.
