I'm configuring a postfix server for the company I work for and have a question about limiting access by IP address.
First off, we're not using this for SPAM. We're a manufacturing/direct marketing company and will use the email server to contact our salespeople. We do not send UCE. That said, we have had problems in the past with our legitimate email being labeled as spam by a few carriers. This email server is being setup specifically to avoid future problems on that type.
Because of the nature of our business we operate several domains. We want to be able to limit outbound email for a given domain to a single IP Address. For example, say we have have 3 domains - a.com, b.com and c.com - and 3 IP addresses - 188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11. We want to set things up so that a.com can only send out email on 18.104.22.168, b.com can only send out email on 22.214.171.124 and c.com can only send out email on 126.96.36.199.
My first impulse is to set these up as virtual domains on the Postfix server but I'm not sure that's the best method. Are there alternatives? What are your recommendations for doing this?
I moved the catch-all mapping to the bottom of the virtual_alias_maps hash, and I realized my problem description wasn't accurate. All mail is going to user1. The header tells me it's going to user2 or user3, but everything is delivered to user1. postfix 2.5.5 fc8 /etc/postfix/virtual:
email@example.com user2 firstname.lastname@example.org user3
my catch-all for [URL]t is working ok. however, everything sent to [URL] is delivered to user2 (local). i am expecting [URL] mail to be delivered to user3 (also local)
I have a postfix relay running in RHEL 5. It serves as an SMTP server. Mail traffic is delivers to the exchange server/Active directory system that is handled by another admin. So far postfix serves [URL] I am asked if it's possible to configure the same server to relay inbound and outbound email for the domain [URL]
i compiled and install postfix, and i using relayhost that point to my ISP. but my "DNS server" is on the same server where is installed postfix. and there is running apache with vhosts so i have domain that hosted on same server and in zonefiles of my domain my MX records points to Google Apps, to google's MX servers. But when i try send E-mail via sendmail to email@example.com it not deliver mail to Google Apps totally, if i try to send to another E-mail everything fine it deliver it. so finally i done research this problem in Internet. And find that need to disable deliver mail to localhost(localdelivery)as i think postfix understand that the domain point to the same server where postfix have itself. and try to deliver mail local. but zonefile MX record even the domain on same server can point to another server outside. So i disabled localdelivery in postfix. and problem not fixed
I am newbie to postfix. I added a new domain to my postfix server in the main.cf under mydestinations variable and the relay_domains file. Also, added this domain to my backend exchange server. When I send a test message from the new domain, my messages from that domain appear to be stuck in the "queue active". What does it mean when you are stuck in this queue? Does this mean that my backend email server (exchange 2003) isn't allowing messages from this new domain OR that the POSTFIX server still needs configuring.
Im trying to get postfix to filter my outgoing mail and basically drop everything that is not in my hash table.
So far I managed to get this going
Unfortunately those rules also apply to incoming messages. My goal is to disallow users on my host to change their "MAIL FROM" to anything they like and restrict them to domains I specify. I'm aware that the local part still is variable and a user of domain "foo.com" could use a email of domain "bar.com", but still some of my troubles would be solved if I get this running.
I am new to Linux and I am trying to set up a mail server using postfix. I have done all the configurations(hopefully correct) and all the test seems to work except 2 things.
1) Postfix is running but when I try to restart the service it always fails. I checked the /var/log folder and there are no error messages. 2) When I try sending e-mails using outlook, outlook fails to connect to my server.
I am wondering if I have done the configurations properly. I am a little confused in regards to hostname and domain name. When I do a hostname on the terminal I see the hostname that I gave my server. When I do the domainname command however, domain is none. Is it necessary to have a domain to configure postfix? I have myhostname = my.hostname.com what should my domainname = to if there is none. If I do require a domain name how to I create one? I need to be able to access e-mail from external clients.
I'm using Ubuntu Server 10.04 and I can successfully relay mail generated by php scripts through an Exchange server.What I want to do is accept incoming mail from the Internet through postfix and relay it to the Exchange server but I want all mail that is not addressed to ...@mydomain.edu to be discarded.
I have a mail server taking care of mail for my 4 domains; the first is used for virtually all mail, the second rarely used anymore, the third is virtually 100% spam the past year(?), and the fourth isn't in use (and never has been, so no spam). What I'd like to do is to reject all mail to the third domain. Right now this is what I get (I tried to send to a nonexistent address from gmail):
Since my username (xyz@) is the same for all domains, I could (or so I hope) change the reject message to give a hint to replace [URL] with [URL] and try again.
Tearing my hair out on this one a little bit, having problems sending message from web based PHP form to user inbox.I keep getting: Undelivered Mail Returned to Sender<firstname.lastname@example.org>: Host or domain name not found. Name service error for name=mydomain.co.uk type=A: Host not found.Running these commands:
I've setup postfix using mysql tables and all works except for sending to an alias. The mysql logs show that postfix is only looking at the mailbox table for where to deliver the mail for the alias. However it is not looking in the virtual alias maps table. There are no complaints from postfix on startup to indicate that there is anything wrong, and if I send to a virtual domain listed as a relay on the server it does look up the virtual alias table... even though the domain is not hosted on the server....
So the question I have is where to look next? The mysql log shows the expected lookups from postfix EXCEPT for the virtual alias map queries.... why would it not be checking the table? Since it is not looking up the virtual alias it bounces the addresses back to sender complaining that the user doesn't exist... It does deliver to a virtal mailbox, however again it never checks the vitual alias table.... so it only delivers since there's a mailbox for it rather than needing an alias...
I'm trying to figure out how to access the local part and the domain part of an email address in postfix's main.cf. For example, email@example.com has myname as the local part and mydomain.net as the domain part.I get the whole email address with %s. I want to speed up the lookups by writing better database queries.I've had no luck finding this in the otherwise well documented postfix.
I've got a home server running Ubuntu Server 9.04 and several machines running Ubuntu Desktop (9.04 and 8.04) and Windows (XP, Vista and 7). Now what I want to do is to create a domain and directory server similar in function to Windows Server w/ AD and join my other machines to the domain, but am not sure where to start. I already have file shares with Samba but now I want to setup a domain.
I have a mail server up and running sending and receiving mails with one primary(dom1) and a virtual domain(dom2). My problem is that i get the header anyUserOfDom2 at dom1.tld when i receive mail on my gmail account which i sent myself from user at dom2.tld . So the part after the at sign should be dom2.tld but i get dom1.tld so people can't send replies.
Here is my scenario and what I want to try and achieve.
Server A = 192.168.1.5 (serverA.home.com) Server B = 192.168.1.6 (serverB.home.com)
Currently I have serverA.home.com domain name set up using a free dns service online. When I am anywhere in the world I just type the domain name it hits my static ISP IP via the free dns servers online, hits my home router, gets port forwarded to 192.168.1.5 Server A and I am up and running.
I have bought a second domain for serverB and want it set up like serverA but I am totally baffled on how I can resolve 2 domain names on a single network? I need (somehow) to try and tell the dns servers that when I enter in serverB.home.com it will hit my static ISP IP as above and then hit my home router but then get directed/split to Server B and not to Server A.
Basically all I want to do is name the machines and get traffic resolved to them.
I am trying unsuccessfully to have a more permanent fix so I can receive emails from an invalid domain. The message is 'Sender address rejected: Domain not found' in the postfix mail logs. Fair enough, there may be an A record or MX record problem there, but there is nothing I can do about this with the Sender at present. Mail *will* come through from the invalid domain if I delete
from the list at: smtpd_recipient_restrictions in /etc/postfix/main.cf (see coded area below for full list). I have added the Domain in question as an 'OK', both by name and by IP address, to: /etc/postfix/recipient_access, then used postmap to successfully create the database which appears as: recipient_access.db
ie recipient_access (not recipient_access.db) has contents: invalid-domain-name.com OK ; the space betw is a tab space 123.456.789.012OK ; the space betw is a tab space I suspect the failure is something to do with postmap and the recipient_access.db database file created by postmap, but just cannot work this out. Running: postconf -d indicates that the hash format is the default database format
As indicated below,
check_recipient_access hash:/etc/postfix/recipient_access is listed up front in smtpd_recipient_restrictions Postfix was restarted on all occassions Everything above was done as root and permissions on the .db files are the same as other files in /etc/postfix
1. when a mail is sent to an account; if it has a forwarder set; it should forward a copy of email to the mentioned email address.
2. all the emails sent to a domain alias should be automatically forwarded to the respective email account in the main domain.
eg for 1. firstname.lastname@example.org => email@example.com eg for 2. firstname.lastname@example.org => email@example.com
We have a database that stores the mailboxes as we have our own control panel. I can get only one working at a time. I have the mysql query in the .cf file and mentioned it in the main.cf as 'virtual_alias_maps' but i need both to work not just one at a time.
I have question about the UNIX sockets. my goal is to connect multiple sockets from a single client to a single server and keep them open...I'm not sure if that is possible to create or not. Do you have any suggestion or an example of code?
I just configured my first postfix mail server today. Everything is working correctly except for the fact that on all outgoing emails instead of the mail format being firstname.lastname@example.org it says user@hostnameofpostfixserver. I've looked everywhere I can think and I cant see where I'm substituting the host-name of the server for the domain name of my email. Where else could it be?Below is my main.cf. I am running ubuntu 9.10.# See /usr/share/postfix/main.cf.dist for a commented, more complete version# Debian specific: Specifying a file name will cause the first# line of that file to be used as the name. The Debian default
iam using centos5.2.configured qmail,vpopmail. while adding domain form vadddomain<domain.co.in> At first time domain folder get created in domains directory.and also postmaster user also get created by default.And also in mysql. Now the problem is after some times or rebooting system domain get erased automatic.also in /var/qmail/users/assign file domain name get erased.
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 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 main.cf 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:
After a reboot of my VPS, I keep getting the following error when sending email to my domain (hosted on Google Email). I can send to other email addresses but my own. So it seems like postfix thinks all mydomain.co.nz is to be sent internally?
I want to host 5 websites on my new virtual server so I have created 2 nameservers that point to my virtual server's IP addresses as a glue record. What confuses me is when I create a new domain on my server it gives the new domain it's own nameservers (ns1.thenewdomain.co.uk etc) do I need to change these records so they use the nameservers I created earlier? If I do? Which particular records should I change? I'm running a Unix virtual server with a Plesk control panel.
i need to allow window domain controller user to use file share of linux.windows DC user can see the share file and directories of linux file server but not able to access.
below is brief--
I have a Linux machine which is on my network but not on my domain. I have configured SAMBA FILESERVER for file sharing purpose. I have a Windows XP PC which is on the domain(windows server) that I am trying to connect to a share on the Linux box. I supply my credentials but regardless of which login I use I always get Logon Failure. I have created an account on the Linux machine with the same user name and password as my domain account but so far no luck. Can I connect from a domain PC to a non-domain Linux box? Is there something else I should be checking?
