Server :: Setting Up Postfix As Outgoign Mail Relay For Several Domains / Hosts

Oct 6, 2009

I would like to setup postfix to act as a relay for the outgoing mails of a couple of servers each serving it's own domain.The mails we are talking about are standard administrative emails like user registration, password reset request. The volume of those mails will naturally grow as the site grows. Which for me poses the problem that depending on the growth of the site you will sooner or later hit the quotas imposed by (my otherwise preferred) providers like GMail or smtp.com.

So what I need is a mail relay that will only accept mails from authenticated clients from hosts in its access list and relay their mail without restrictions. Is that possible with postfix? What has to be changed in the config and what are the pitfalls?

Server :: Configure Postfix To Relay Mail To Multiple Internal Mail Servers With Different Domains?

Aug 6, 2010

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.

CentOS 5 Server :: Postfix And Hosts File - The Mail Server Could Not Deliver Mail

Mar 20, 2011

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 cs@thinclientwarehouse.co.uk TO my working email simon@c1systems.co.uk, but the server returned with the following message:

<simon@c1systems.co.uk>: host mail.c1systems.co.uk[95.128.128.129] said: 550-Verification failed for <cs@localhost.thinclientwarehouse.co.uk> 550-The mail server could not deliver mail to cs@localhost.thinclientwarehouse.co.uk.

Server :: Postfix: Sending Mail From Multiple Domains?

Jul 20, 2009

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.)

Ubuntu Servers :: Postfix Relay - Exchange Sends The Mail Instead Giving Recipient Mail A Valid Reverse DNS Lookup

Jan 12, 2011

The scenario: We have an external server that runs HTTP/DB servers for out shop system. Then, there's our local, in-house infrastructure that runs a.. yeah... Exchange 2010. The shop system on the external server needs to send mails to customers (order confirmations, invoices, etc.). seing as sending them directly through the local MTA (Postfix) would cause mail delivery problems because of reverse DNS issues, i've set the Postfix MTA to act as a satellite to our in-house Exchange Server, so the Exchange sends the mail instead, giving recipient mail servers a valid reverse DNS lookup.

Now, mails sent by the (proprietary, uneditable) shop system are relayed correctly and sent to the target e-mail address. My problem is: Mails not sent by the shop system, but by our own PHP scripts which run on that same external servers, are NOT relayed properly. So the Exchange is fine with the mails sent by the shop system, but not the mails sent by our scripts. This is what i get in the mail.log: The successfully relayed mail sent by the shop system:

Server :: Setting Up A Postfix Mail On Ubuntu?

Apr 16, 2011

how the whole mail server thing works, and what software handles what job. From my understanding POP3 and IMAP are protocols to pull email from a mail server, and SMTP is used to push email to a server. There are many programs that I've seen involved with creating a mail server, but I'm trying to use just Postfix. Postfix can send and receive email right?

My server runs in my basement and runs Ubuntu Server 10.10. It uses Cherokee as its web server, and it runs several other servers as well (SSH, FTP, Git, etc). My goal is to set up a mail server so that websites I run such as a Redmine or a web forum can send emails to people (e.g. an activation email for a user registering on a forum).

Anyway, I set up postfix, and now my server can receive email. I've been able to send an email from my Gmail address to drew@minipenguin.com (my server), and it works. However, if I try to send email from drew@minipenguin.com to my Gmail, it never goes through. I don't care about receiving email, as my only goal is to be able to send it.

Server :: Setting Up Postfix For Outgoing Mail?

Jul 27, 2011

I'm setting up a server and trying to make it *very* secure. Before I configured my web stack, I was about to install some security packages, Tiger and Samhain, but these packages wanted to install sendmail so that they can send outgoing notifications. From the reading I've been doing, I believe I want postfix instead of sendmail. It is my (perhaps mistaken) belief that installing postfix first will prevent them from installing this sendmail I do not want.

I want to install postfix with the following goals in mind:

* let PHP scripts send mail using the mail function.

* various system notification functions (cron, etc.) will be able to send their emails

* emails destined for root@localhost will be redirected to admin@mydomain.com

* let tiger and/or samhain send their notification emails

* NO INCOMING OR LOCAL MAIL IS PERMITTED. Because mail for my domain is handled by google apps, nobody will be checking mail on this server. Also, this server has very limited disk space. It is therefore very important that we don't have mail accumulating in boxes that will never be checked.

* no unnecessary ports, services, or cron jobs are running.

I've been reading a variety of pages that describe postfix setup on Ubuntu but these articles are imprecise, incomplete, and describe installation of things I don't want like POP/IMAP/etc.

There's also one final wrinkle. I will be setting up postfix to send via Amazon SES.

OpenSUSE Network :: Setting Up Default Postfix Sender / Using Relay For MTA

I have setup up an Opensuse as a simple we/application server.It handles requests for various things and will need to send out email on occasion for things like password reset requests, information / warnings etc. etc.This is a standard OPenSuse 11.x install with defaults so it comes with Postfix as the mta.I do not want a mail server I just want to send out via my clients mail server which is hosted exchange rackspace, which simply requires SMTP auth to do so.What would be the proper way to do this so ALL e-mail send from this machine, regardless of account like WWWRun or when logged in and sending from the command line has the same sender all the time.

Ubuntu Servers :: Postfix Configuration - Send Mail To Other Domains

Nov 5, 2010

Let me start off by saying I am experienced with computers, though my knowledge of Linux and networking is limited. I've just recently started setting up a Ubuntu 10.04 server to be a SMTP server. I've followed this guide by the letter: [URL] What I've attempted, to test the server, is the following:

telnet localhost 25
ehlo localhost

(this returns all the desired information) I then do a MAIL FROM my domain which is accepted, and try to do a RCPT TO an external mail server (gmail) to test sending an email. I am then told 'Relay Access Denied'. I'm sure that there's something fundamental that I'm either not understanding or not doing correctly. I simply want an SMTP server that can send to other domains. What do I need to do?

CentOS 5 Server :: How To Utilize Access Map And Relay-domains To Achieve Same Thing?

Feb 3, 2010

I run a few sendmail servers that run MailScanner/Spamassassin/sendmail (current versions) on Centos 5.4 and Centos 4.8 These boxes accept mail for a large number of domains (6000+) scan the mail removing spam and then forward the ham to another server for delivery. I am attempting to stop any backscatter that these servers cause by only accepting mail for specific users@domain or for domains with a catch-all account.I currently use /etc/ mail/ access.db as the access map for the domains, but this allows all mail to be accepted for the domain before the attempting to send it on for final delivery which causes NDR and backscatter for those domains which do not have a catch-all account.

I have looked at adding "To:user@domain RELAY" to the access mapand also adding "define(`_RELAY_FULL_ADDR_', `1') " in the sendmail.mc and running make -C /etc/mail but this has no effect on the sendmail.cf file. My understanding is that if I can get sendmail to accept this undocumented feature then all will be fine as I will be able to use the access map to allow mail to those specific users as well as entries of the type "domain RELAY".My second question is: Does anyone have any ideas on how to utilise access map and relay-domains to achieve the same thing?

Ubuntu Servers :: Secondary Mail Server And A Mail Gateway/relay?

Aug 3, 2011

Our primary mail server is Exchange 2003 Standard on Windows Server 2003 Standard - don't shout at me; I inherited it already set up this way.I have a couple of hardware identical redundant servers (HP ML350 boxes), all with very fast 2 or 4 disk arrays, multiple core CPUs and plenty of memory, and I am looking at two potential new additions to the infrastructure.

A secondary mail server is high on my list of priories. I've been well and truly bitten by Exchange in the past and given that this particular box has been running four years straight and that it's mail store is dangerously large, having a secondary mail server in place suddenly makes a lot of sense.

A new Exchange 2010 box is currently being set up, but the secondary mail server will remain in place even when the new Exchange server is brought online, so this won't be a wasted exercise.... I also want a gateway box in place to filter and relay mail to the primary server, or to the secondary server if the primary is unavailable. Currently our outer perimeter is:

ISP supplied CISCO router
Draytek VigorPro 5510 UTM

Untangle running in bridged mode (primarily used for SPAM filtering, URL blacklisting, and very little else) Exchange 2003 sits behind the Untangle box. This is how I want to end up:

CISCO >> Draytek >> Ubuntu gateway >> Exchange/secondary mail server

I know I could replace/remove the Draytek but I want it to remain for several reasons, including lots of VPN dial-in users already configured and that it offers us an additional layer of email antivirus scanning before things hit the Exchange box. No point switching all of our remote workers over to new tunnels unnecessarily...

I have done some research and have started testing a pilot secondary mail server using Ubuntu/postfix DNS is properly set up and MX records and reverse PTR records are all present and correct, and things are looking encouraging so far. Before I go out over deep waters and start to flounder, has anyone who has done something like this got any obvious howlers I should be looking to avoid ?

Server :: How To Block Domains (Postfix)

Nov 20, 2008

who manage Postfix servers, what do you recommend is the best way to refuse all incoming and outgoing mail to specific domains? I want a blacklist of domains such as:

- AOL
- Yahoo
- MSN
- Hotmail
- Gmail

Is there a proper way I can tell Postfix to please deny sending and receiving SMTP traffic to and from those specific domains I specify? I see no need in my corp. mail server has to communicate in any way to those. I allow access to all those accounts via port 80/443 so they can just login to the web and send non business related junk this way.

Server :: Postfix As Sending MTA For Multiple Domains?

Jun 7, 2010

I am setting up a Postfix MTA that will be only sending mail for 10 different domains. We have other servers that will be receiving the mail for the domains so I only need to set up for sending on Postfix.

What my issue is I am trying to configure Postfix so that when it sends mail the header shows what domain the mail came from and not the domain the Postfix server is set to. For example....

[URL]

When I send mail from domain2.com I want it to show in the header it was sent from domain2.com and not from domain1.com. What do I need to set in postfix so that this happens? Right now no matter what domain the mail is from the header always shows the server domain and I can't have that.

Server :: Postfix - Block Certain Foreign Domains?

Jun 18, 2009

I am running a spam filter on debian lenny 5.1 with postfix, amavis-new, spamassassin, and clamav. It works pretty well but I would like to finish tweaking it to minimize the mail getting quarantined. It really isn't quarantining anything that isn't spam, except for an occasional list mailer. However, the quarantine is huge, and takes a while to go through. I noticed that much of the spam is coming from foreign country tld's like .cz is there anyway to have postfix run a check on the header and if the email, or smtp origination is from a server from a foreign tld have it just rejected. I can whitelist anything if need be in the future but as of now we don't do any business overseas and don't need to worry about blocking legit email.

I think this should be possible, however, I am unsure of the syntax for the file, where to put it and if wildcards are possible in domain blocking like

CentOS 5 Server :: Postfix Multiple Domains One User?

I am currently running a apache/postfix email service on my server. I am using aliases for two addresses for example:

trscookie@serverone.com
trscookie@secondserver.com

so the emails no matter which domain receives the email trscookie always will receive the email.

However I am unable to work out how to 'reverse' this process, for example.

If i was to go to secondserver.com/webmail I would like the emails to get sent from trscookie@secondserver.com however they are currently all coming from serverone.com. Is it possible to configure this so that it is sent from the correct domain?

Here is my main.cf:

queue_directory = /var/spool/postfix
command_directory = /usr/sbin
daemon_directory = /usr/libexec/postfix
mail_owner = postfix
