Server :: Postfix Filter Outgoing Mail By Sender Domain ?
Jun 17, 2010
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 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
This seems like a relatively simple question, but I haven't been able to figure it out from the documentation after a couple of hours of searching. I'm running postfix on my mail server, and the vast majority of my spam has the sender address spoofed to match the recipient address. I've got spamassassin up and running, and very little gets through that, so it's not a serious problem, but if possible I would like to be able to reject the mail before it arrives to reduce the system load.
Mail is sent locally via webmail, relaying is denied, so the only way that mail should be sent from the domain is via a connection from localhost. The basic idea I'm thinking of is if the MAIL FROM sender claims to be an address at the receiving domain, but is connected from a remote IP, the mail should be rejected.
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 email@example.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.
I'm trying to set up an mail filter for our domain. At the moment we're using ClearOS as the filter, works OK but I still get something through and the blacklist and whitelist doesn't seem to work. I was hoping to set up a mail filter on my own, using Spamassassin and/or something else. It seems I have to buy subscription at ClearOS to make it update better or something. I might just do that, it's just tempting to find a way to do it on "my own". I tried to follow these instructions but I don't seem to go anywhere... ...I began with setting up the base server as it is shown there. I've setup quite a few Linux servers, mainly as firewall/gateway kind of things but also some DNS servers, web servers and so on.
I have one mail server and the mail filter is supposed to be on the outside to filter mail before it hits the mail server.
As a part of migration I am proposing different scenarios to my organization. One which is asked to prepare is to configure multiple mail servers to handle incoming and outgoing mails. Say I have -[URL], I need to have accept mails from [URL] and send mail from [URL].
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
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.
Working in a SW company. guys transfer their codes through email outside the company. mailserver running on postfix. Is there any method to filter mails according to contents of attachment not by file extension.
We have MS Exchange email server with postfix/amavis on FreeBSD as proxy for anti-spam and anti-virus. We use our own developed CRM and trying to implement such functionality that when CRM manager send email to CRM client or vice versa through email client like Outlook (no plugins for CRM) this message would be shown in CRM. There is already a solution to parse emails from specific emailbox and show it in CRM.
What I need is to create postfix email filter to check if sender email is in file CRM_managers_emails and recipient email is in file CRM_clients_emails then forward that email to [URL] Filter should check both incoming and outgoing messages. I will auto generate CRM_managers_emails and CRM_clients_email files containing all such emails taken from CRM database. I know i should use something like Postfix After-Queue Content Filter but most of examples are for blocking emails.
I want a mail server that can relay mails to the internet using GMail and fetch the mails of different accounts into the mail server and distribute them to their respective users. I am using Postfix, Fetchmail and Dovecot. I have a PC with 3 users.I use the PC having Ubuntu 9.04 and share the internet. We all send mail and retrieve mail. We do use Evolution and Mutt sometimes. We want to send our mails with our email_ids without even logging in.
Hostname mail.myhomepc.com Domain myhomepc.com
I have created my custom certificate using SSL. I've created the Postfix's main.cf file following a tutorial on the net. Currently mails are going fine, but with our local email_ids. I want Postfix to rewrite our local email_ids with the equivalent email_id on the net.
I need to have a postfix server to rewrite the sender's address. For example, if the sender is: [URL], then the recipient would receive all emails from [URL] as [URL]. I tried using the generic file and created a table out of it, but this did not work:
postmap /etc/postfix/generic -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 9977 Dec 27 15:24 generic -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 12288 Dec 27 15:25 generic.db
I added this line to the generic text file:
I am running two boxes with postfix 2.3.3. and 2.1.1 respectively. Both need this configuration. I also added this line:
smtp_generic_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/generic
on the main.cf file. However, this did not work. The one running postfix 2.3.3 is on Centos 5.5, the other one is on SuSe Enterprise 9.
I have a server which runs postfix. The same physical server is running web and mail services for several (3) domains, which I have reserved for future use (nothing serious or valuable, just freetime activities). Server "physical" address (also static IP) is myhost.domain.com. Lets say the other domains it serves are first.fi, second.net ad third.com. I can receive mails OK sent to all of these, I have added those 3 "extra" domains to the mydestination line in main.cf. Sending e-mails also works fine, but the sender is [URL].. I want the sender to be firstname.lastname@example.org
I tried setting sender_canonical_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/sender_canonical in main.cf, and sender_canonical contains:
and I run postmap /etc/postfix/sender_canonical, and e-started postfix. But if I send e-mail as user1, the sender becomes [URl].. so it re-writed the username part, but hot the hostname/domain part. I also tried setting smtp_generic_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/generic but the results were similar. What do I need to do to re-write sender for user1 (regardless of host/domain) to Firstname1@first.fi?
I have sendmail installed in my home machine and also dns is configured and also I have configured mx for mail server. My dns is unregistered and my question is that can I send mail to external account like yahoo or gmail to check whether my is working or not.
I am using Postfix on CentOS to send mail through a relayhost. The mail sends fine, but on certain clients such as the mail client on the iPhone or Windows Live Mail, the message is received with '(No Sender)' in the sender field. The Apple Mail client on the iMac works just fine.
Here is the PHP code I am using to send the mail code...
Wondering if there is a configuration setting in /etc/postfix/main.cf I can use to fix this problem. I have scoured the help files but have come up empty.
I have a linux server set up with postfix, which sends emails to our mail servers (MS Exchange). The linux server itself generates a lot of emails, and I would like to limit the number of mails it can send out pr second so that it doesn't spam our mail servers. Anyone know how I can control the max number of outgoing emails my linux server can send? As of now it's possible for my linux server to cause a denial of service attack on our Exchange server since I have no way of controlling the rate of outgoing messages.
I have a postfix system that sends allot of emails to customers and web site visitors. A lot of visitors just enter an invalid email in the WEB form just to download some files or do other tasks. Is it possible to BLACKLIST specific email addresses so the system does not send to those addresses? I can grep from the postfix mail log all those fake emails and place them somewhere.
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 want a mail server that can work just like MDaemon. The reason is, I want to have an email content filter rule that does some thing like this.
1. If the To Header contains "support@thisdomain" then run a program. What this means is that, there is a program here in the office, and if some one sends an email to the support address, with an attachment of .exe and that person is a customer, then the program should be run. The only thing I need here is if there is a rule or script that can filter email header and run a program.
2. If the Exit Code from a previous 'Run program' rule is in the range of 1 to 100 and if the To Header contains "support@thisdomain" then send note1 "to<email address>" from <$SENDER$" "SUBJECT <AM ...> and delete this message.
3. If the EXIT CODE from a previous 'Run program' rule is =0 and if the TO HEADER contains "support@thisdomain" then send note1 "to<email address>" from <$SENDER$" "SUBJECT <AM ...> and delete this message.
There is an requirement, intranet people they may not have internet access but they want to send mail to external domain(internet),but in that intranet network one machine can have internet access. Is there any solution for this requirement.
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[184.108.40.206] 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 been looking for a way to filter out emails on my postfix server by GeoIP data. I couldn't find anything that fitted the bill so wrote my own in Python as a postfix policy. Thought I'd post it here to see if it's of any use to anyone else. I've attached a tar of the files as the Python formatting will get mucked up by the forum code. Comments/improvements are welcome (be kind ) First file is : policyd-geoip which is owned by root:root and placed in /usr/bin with 755 perms
