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.
I'm trying to set up a basic smtp server on my local computer that I can send basic, unencrypted email through on port 25. I installed postfix, and I chose the following options:
Internet Site, System Mail Name: localhost Root and postmaster mail recipient: I left this blank For other domains to accept mail, I entered : NONE, localhost No force synchronous mail updates Local networks: 127.0.0.0/8
But I fully have my server and everything up, MySQL, PHP5, Apache2, Postfix, Courier, SQMail, can't remember what else atm.
I installed mailx and used the mail command to send an email to my external email address, worked just fine. sent it to another email, worked as well.
But the problem is, I do 'telnet localhost 25' to test it like they say, it connects. I run 'ehlo localhost' Nothing happens.
I've tried setting it up with Thunderbird on my home pc and it connects to the IMAP & POP servers just fine, but it cannot establish a connection with SMTP, I've tried changing the SMTP port to other ones, still no luck.
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'm trying to use different MTA servers (one for each domain) on the same public IP and port (25). Here I attach a graphic of my idea, to have a Postfix server that receives all incoming mail from internet, and relays to different local servers. esquema_mta-dns.jpg How can be configured the "Relayer MTA" ?
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 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 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'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.
I'm hoping someone here can help, as I've been beating my head on the wall for a week now with little advancement. I've found a number of tutorials on setting this up, however none of them have gotten me 100% of the way there. Here's my situation: home-based Fedora server (Core 8), running sendmail 8.14.2-1. Connecting to hosting company's smtp server over port 587, to bypass Verizon's blocking of port 25.
My /etc/mail/sendmail.mc file looks like this (comment lines removed):Quote:
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].
I followed this How To (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Postfix) in order to add smtp authentication to my Postfix installation used as spam filter for my exhange server, and it'seem all ok; the only thing that I don't understand is where I list all the users (with passwords) that I authorize to send mail through my server...
This is a transcript I get emailed at least once every day, usually about 3 to 10 a day recently.
Transcript of session follows. SMTP server: errors from unknown[ip address] <boring stuff snipped> In: RCPT TO: <server@my domain> Out: 550 5.1.1 <server@my domain>: Recipient address rejected: User unknown in local recipient table
Session aborted, reason: lost connection Now I cannot seem to find anything via Google, as when I put "server@" anywhere in the string, I just get web hosting or other kroomst. The emails usually come from legit places, usually hotels. Does this mean they are sending bad emails, i.e. they have a Trojan/worm, or is this a live hack attempt?. I believe the later, as I might get upto 3 domains from the one ip address, which is always, NOT associated with the listed domain. Not causing me any issues, except I have been getting a lot recently.
I need to setup a mail server, purely for relaying mail to a MS exchange server. A previous employee used Postfix on CentOS. I have limited Linux knowledge and no experience with any mail server software other than MS Exchange, so we cannot continue with this solution (unless I can find a way of managing it all from a gui). Does anyone know of an MTA that can be configured completely by GUI? Everyone says sendmail has millions of features and loads of documentation, but I simply do not have the time to learn it. I need something that can be configured with minimal knowledge and via GUI, not command line. The only reason I'm not using Exchange is to try to save money, and hopefully it will be more secure.
It seems my sendmail (running in slackware 13.0) cannot send out emails correctly. I guess I need to tell it what is the smtp server to use. And, I heard, gmail's smtp server is available to use for this purpose. How to configure my sendmail this way?
I have been using evolution to send/receive email from my account with 123-reg with no problems. My home ISP is aol. I am currently on vacation in France and using orange.fr as my ISP. I can still receive email from 123-reg but when I try to send, get the error message "Could not connect to smtp.123-reg.co.uk: No route to host" 123-reg help seem to be either clueless or not bothered. I've tried altering settings in evolution preferences, but nothing seems to work. Currently set to "server requires authentication"

I'm using postfix to send some mail from my cloud server via a web page on my website that uses PHPmailer to do SMTP authentication. My cloud server has a dedicated IP for all inbound and outbound data. The problem I am having is that it sends roughly 75 - 100 messages successfully before it returns the following error for the remaining few hundred recipients in my list:
SMTP Error: The following recipients failed: firstname.lastname@example.org Mailer Error [URL] SMTP Error: The following recipients failed: email@example.com SMTP server error: 5.5.0 Sender already specified
i need to configure postfix on centos to relay email from the internet to the Exchange Server and i also need that emails sent from the exchange within the same domain be sent to postfix then resent to exchange because i have spamassassin and clamav installed on centos to filter all incoming and outgoing mails ...
