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
I am using the Postfix SMTP server for sending emails. However I just did a default installation and subsequently someone is sending spam using my SMTP server. I would like some help on securing my Postfix server and to block these mischievous emails being sent from my server.
I'd like to have anything that tries to send mail locally on my machine (including crontab reports for instance) to be handled by my ISP's smtp server instead of my machine acting like it's own SMTP server. I've spent around 15 hours trying to figure out how to do this and I keep either getting into things that I don't understand, or hitting brick walls (for instance, I found nullmailer, but after installing it, it seemed like it would only work on Unix) Is there an application like nullmailer which I can use as my MTA to forward all internal mail to a different SMTP?
I'm trying to set up my postfix server to relay mail (via a php cms) using Gmail's smtp on my account, but for some reason, Gmail returns an error code that StartTLS must be sent first, my postfix main.cnf file can be found at pastebin, because of this forum's text length I cannot paste my postfix main.cnf file as can be seen I have everything set and configured for Gmail, but postfix (for some unseen reason) can not send StartTLS. [URL].
my postfix to send and recive external emails, but many recive in trash folder.Other programer say me that is need some configurations in postfix with and dovecot to work, but i dont know what!This is my first time configuring a linux server at this week.
my main.conf sample_directory = /usr/share/doc/postfix-2.3.3/samples readme_directory = /usr/share/doc/postfix-2.3.3/README_FILES
I'm running a server with two sites which both need to be able to send emails. Currently I have Postfix set up to send email via Google Apps. This works fine, but Google's servers ignore the From: address I specify and substitute the one I logged in with. Is there a way to make Postfix log into Google Apps with a different username based on what site the email is coming from? The server does not recieve any mail itself; Google recieves it and we have it set to forward it to the appropriate person's real email address. I'm only worried about sending mail.
(Postfix is not a requirement here, so if there's another mailer that can do this better, I'm open to ideas. However, sending email directly from the server isn't an option as it's a residential IP address and blocked by most of the big email providers.)
One of my mailservers running postfix has suddenly stopped sending mail and has been generating the following errors:
Jan 7 12:03:08 postfix/sendmail: warning: premature end-of-input on /usr/sbin/postdrop -r while reading input attribute name Jan 7 12:03:08 postfix/sendmail: fatal: root(0): unable to execute /usr/sbin/postdrop -r: Success
Things I have tried to fix this problem, but didn't work.
1) Stopped postfix, uninstalled and reinstalled.
2) Did a complete filesystem relabel with a touch /.autorelabel and reboot.
3) Did a restorecon -F -R on /etc/postfix, /var/spool/postfix and /usr/sbin/post*
Nothing above has worked and have no idea why with selinux disabled postfix works and with it on it fails.
I have configured mail server with postfix with dovecot with no encryption: When connecting with Thunderbird imap is working fine. When sending email from another domain to this domain again it is fine. But when I want to send mail from my domain to another it gives me error and this is /var/log/maillog: Quote:Jan 18 18:23:09 srv1 postfix/smtpd: NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from unknown[126.96.36.199]: 554 5.7.1 <Recipient email>: Relay access denied; from=<Sender> to=<Recipient email> proto=ESMTP helo=<[127.0.0.1]>

I have installed an SMTP server using ... sudo apt-get install postfix but I sill cannot send emails from my local machine to my yahoo account using ... echo "Hi Steve que tal ?" | mail -s "test message" firstname.lastname@example.org
I've setup my server by following a ton of goods, and it seems to work ok, but I need to start using my server for email in order to receive orders placed via my website. I've followed this guide - [URL] I followed the steps above, and tested the mail server via telnet, and all seemed to be ok. I tried sending an email via Squirrelmail, from email@example.com TO my working email firstname.lastname@example.org, but the server returned with the following message:
<email@example.com>: host mail.c1systems.co.uk[188.8.131.52] said: 550-Verification failed for <firstname.lastname@example.org> 550-The mail server could not deliver mail to email@example.com. The account or domain may not exist, they may be blacklisted, or missing the proper dns entries. 550 Sender verify failed (in reply to RCPT TO command)
I've got an uber simple test mail script in php on my awesome new dev machine running Ubuntu:
Unfortunately, something is preventing mail delivery. I can't tell from this error log whether it's the remote machine rejecting me or whether it's my machine rejecting the self-signed cert on the remote machine:
I'm wondering what I could change in my postfix configuration to remedy this problem.
I tried setting smtp_tls_security_level = may = may but this did not change anything.
Two exchange servers internally. One is setup for example.com (192.168.1.10) and the other is setup for example2.com (192.168.1.20) Both are behind a single public IP.
I want to use postfix to sit in front of the two exchange servers. Postfix will accept mail for both domains and relay to the appropriate server. I have postfix installed with only defaults at this point.
I'm running SUSE linux Server version 11. I want to configure mail server with postfix & cyrus-imap. For that, i have read many documents in Internet by i met issues. I'm running DNS in this server & it's ok Now I cannont send mail through command line.
I have searched through piles of postfix and sendmail documentation but I'm not sure of the terminology to describe what I want to do so I'm never sure what solutions are workable. Null client, relay hosts. What I have already is a RHEL postfix server which sends and receives email. What I want to do is add a second postfix server to the network. The second server should accept only ssl smtp mail and forward it on to the main postfix server. Users shouldn't use it for normal internal sending/receiving. It's only to allow me to support ssl smtp from people working out of the office without messing about with the main postfix server. I thought a Null Client sounded likely but I don't think it will accept mail. Is it a relay host I'm trying to configure? Any pointers on configuring something to just accept secure smtp and forward?
I'm trying to configure Postfix with a mail server that I programmed in C. The main.cf is set in this way :
Code: relayhost = [myMailServer.localhost] smtp_sasl_auth_enable = no smtp_use_tls = no disable_dns_lookups=yes smtp_never_send_ehlo = yes code....
I don't know why it doesn't receive response after HELO. In fact if I debug my mail server with gdb, I can see it sends a 250 response code. Moreover, I've tested my server both with traditional mail clients, as Thunderbird, and through telnet session and it works very well.
