Ubuntu Servers :: Courier - Postfix - ClamAV - Spamassassin And Amavis Setup

May 4, 2010

I am currently running Ubuntu Server 9.10 and followed this HOWTO on setting up my email server.


Everything seems to work correctly. If I look in the Maildir the emails I send to test are there.

The problem is when I try to sync my email via IMAP from my windows box (on a different network) it doesn't show any of my email nor does it deliver new email. My email app doesn't give any errors nor does the logs on the server.

How can I get it so my email syncs to windows computer? I am sure it is something really small that I am over looking but I can't seem to find it anywhere. I don't know if you need to see any of my config files but I can post them if needed.

General :: Postfix Courier Amavis - Can Recieve But Not Send

Sep 24, 2010

I can send emails to local accounts but not out to the world. Here are the refrences I used to set things up.


I was able to send and receive after the "basic" setup. I added amavis-new and I am pretty sure that it stopped working then. (late nights, lots of changes/tries not 100% sure any more) Went back to basics trying to send a test email from telnet (on the server).


mail:~# telnet mail.my-server.com 25
Connected to mail.my-server.com.

CentOS 5 Server :: Mailqueue Filling Up - Postfix/Courier/Spamassassin

Feb 2, 2010

In the last week email delivery had slowed down to taking approximately 24 hours and investigation has revealed that there were 45000 emails in the mailqueue. I flushed the mailqueue yesterday but mail delivery is slowing down again because emails are again being queued by the thousand.

The mails are mainly spam sent to ficticious users at a genuine domain hosted on the server.

My setup is running Courier IMAP with Postfix, Spassassin is installed along with Amavisd-new but I just don't understand why this has suddenly become a problem based on my setup not having changed for the last 6 months.

Should these spam emails be being discarded by spamassassin before reaching the mail queue? Are my discard score settings too high (6.9)?

I have installed qmail on my 10.04 server (Because I prefer qmail and dont want to use postfix) and I would like to just install courier IMAP/POP server without the Postfix (Or other mail servers).

Is there an apt-get install switch that will install just what I want to install without deps; or at least a way to block unwanted deps from being installed.

Software :: Postfix And Spamassassin - Filtering Out Sender = Recipient?

Feb 22, 2010

block incoming email within either postfix or spamassassin when the sender equals the recipient. The manner in which our mail infrastructure is set up would preclude this from happening. Granted, we do have outside vendors that spoof our domain so we have to allow emails in with our domain as the sender/from. The vendors do not, however, utilize the same sender/recipient when sending emails.

Server :: Postfix + Spamassassin + Procmail + Spamass-milter - Cannot Get To Work

Feb 2, 2010

I have Postfix and Spamassassin setup on Ubuntu Server 9.10. The mail is working perfectly. Spamassassin is correctly marking messages as spam. My problem is with the milter and procmail. On past servers I was able to reject spam based on score via the spamass-milter. For whatever reason I can not get it to work. I have also tried with procmail, again, it does not work. Here are the relative lines in their respective config files:

I'm getting a 553 From address not verified. I have tried what it suggested from the URL link, but it still doesn't work.

Ubuntu Servers :: Setup Postfix To Relay Email It Cannot Deliver Locally?

Jul 17, 2011

I'm trying to setup postfix (or exim, I don't mind which), so I can move away my last remaining PC from Windows.I've tinkered with Postfix for good part of a month and I can get it to accept emails using SMTP and post them to a virtual mailbox based on MySQL tables. And it rejects mail addressed to local email addresses that it can't find in the table.

First question (or problem.) I've set up Postfix to relay email it cannot deliver locally such as is the case when you send out an email. My remote host requires authentication. How can I set this up?

Second question: I want to force my clients to use either AUTH, TLS or SSL, and not allow anonymous connections (to prevent an open relay server.) How do I set that up without interfering with the smarthost setting? The smarthost login is not one of my clients, it's a pre-determined login and password that is solely used for the email relaying aspect.

Apr 7, 2011

I'm trying to get my server back up to snuff. I'm using Debian Squeeze right now and I'm up and atom with apache, mysql, php, pureftpd, ssh, and I have squirrelmail installed.

My dilemma comes with the mail part of the whole ordeal, Postfix and Courier are installed, have their keys made, and for what I assume, are configured correctly. HOW do I make new virtual users? My domain points to this machine as well as my MX record for mail.mydomain.com.

I need IMAP and POP working. And upon the creation of new email users, will SquirrelMail interface with Postfix and Courier? When I installed SM I set it up for use with Courier.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Mailserver Setup Clamav Won't Install

Apr 25, 2010

Still trying to get that elusive simple mail server. Have install Centos 5 (20 time!) and updated software. Have got the system to see www and now about to do the mailserver thing. One of the first steps is to install Clamav yet this does not show on the package list for the program add delete gui. Tried yum install clamav and got message back that it wasn't available.

Google advises that I must first install rpmforge but at the same time has a warning from the maker of yum that this is dangerous to do Clamav is clearly a very popular antivirus scanner yet Centos 5 does not include it or allow you to install it?
