Ubuntu Servers :: Delete ALL Mail Server Settings And Start From Scratch?

Dec 21, 2010

I've kinda gone hopelessly lost on my mail server install and now want to start from scratch, after having wasted 4 days on this.Basically I have a 95% working postfix installation, a probably 100% working dovecot installation, but am not happy with it as a few things aren't working properly, and I don't know what I did!mail to /var/mail/richard NOT /Maildir - being the main oneBut, also the fact that I don't know where I went wrong, and want to understand why everything is now haywire. I am not certain if my security is working on the mail or the logins either.e to achieve is thefollowing:PostfixDovecotVirtual Users - using IMAP with Security, allowed to send mail from their clientVirtual DomainsPostfix AdminWebmail (Roundmail)Anti-Virus and Spam-filteringI started with this guide How to set up a mail server on a GNU / Linux system), which seems very, very good I might add, but it is for Courier, and when I bumbled along with the Dovecot equivalent ... that is where things broke.

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 :: 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 ( and the other is setup for example2.com ( 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.

Slackware :: Failed HD...drat \ Reinstall And Start From Scratch?

Feb 19, 2011

The hard drive that I used with Slackware64 has died, so it's time to reinstall and start from scratch.I have been using Slackware64 for over a year now and I enjoyed it...but now with a fresh start, I'm thinking about either going to Slackware64 -Current or going to the 32 bit version.Things I wanted in Slackware64, but couldn't get, were WINE, Skype and VirtualBox. I could have gotten those if I went "MultiLib" but I didn't want to do that, I wanted a pure 64 bit system.If you had to redo your system again, would you stick with your current O/S or would you change it up.

Ubuntu Installation :: XBMC Install Is Broked / Remove Everything And Start From Scratch?

Jun 15, 2011

I have internet access and a semi-working Ubuntu install via command line / SSH. XBMC has been running fine until I did an update, then the xorg.conf got ##$@ed and I've spent the last 4 hours googling and trying to fix it. I'd love to just reinstall, but I don't have a blank CD or a USB Drive to use. Is there anyways I can just erase everything and start from scratch? AFAIK it's not possible to run the Ubuntu Minimal install from anywhere but a CD-ROM or USB Stick.This PC also has access to a Windows directory so I guess I could use WUBI, but would like to avoid that if possible.

Ubuntu Servers :: Delete Emails On Server Via Terminal?

Jun 13, 2011

We have a load of undeliverable emails backed up on the server. The problem we have is that the server we purchased from a well known host is rubbish. It does not matter how many times we use outlook to get the emails off the server, it just keeps timing out.Question I want to ask is:1) How can I view the number of emails on the server via the terminal2) How do I then delete these directly off the server via the terminal

Ubuntu Servers :: Mail Server On Own Server

Dec 18, 2010

After days and days spent in reading guides, how-to, forum post and much more, I still have some doubts regarding the possibility of developing a personal mail server having a fully functional ubuntu server. ( of course this is due to my lack of knowledge...hehe )

First thing I wish to understand is the focal point "Can I have my private mail server pointing to mymail@myinventeddomain.whatever ONLY IF I have previously registered ( bought ) myinventeddomain.whatever?"

Second thing is: " Could it be a work-around setting up a free dynamic name server ( pointing to my server, where a LAMP stack is already fully functional ) and then use this "name" to create my email? "(*) Example: using my own server, already accessible from outside my lan using a free dyndns name, I'm able to access and manage some web-based services. Is it possible to apply concept two at this situation? The base idea is to have my own email service, with my own domain like neomod@thenameiwant.xxx , so I can create email-based notification between my server and some other email addresses without relying onto some public service ( let's say google or my own isp mail server ).

I have read about the common solution in theese cases ( Postfix ) but in each guide, tutorial, faq or similar I could have read there is no explanation about " How to choose/obtain your own domain name".Reading forum discussion situation isn't better, because some one clearly states that I need to by a domain name ( ex. godaddy, aruba, etc. ) while some others say that I can realize it on my own just using dinamic dns name and a few other things.So beg my pardon if this question might seems stupid, but since I already own a domain name+webhost I reallu wish to understand before spending other money.

Ubuntu Servers :: Simple Way To Implement A Mail Server?

Feb 21, 2011

I am putting a php contact form on my webpage that sends messages directly from the page to my email address. This script has worked in the past, but unbeknownst to me that is because my previous server was running a mail transfer client that handled php's mail() function through smtp. The web server I am using now is a home machine configured with ubuntu running php/apache but there is nothing to handle mail. My contact form says the message has been sent, but it never arrives to my inbox.

Following forums, I installed sendmail and verified that smtp was running on port 25, but the form would then hang for over a minute upon submission(and messages still would not be delivered). I then tried exim4 as a mail transfer agent which solved the hanging, but messages still werent delivered. From my reading it appears this could have something to do with my hosts file, but I am unsure how this needs to be configured (pretty new to all this and I seem to have bitten off more than I can chew).

I eventually configured exim4 to use the smarthost feature for outgoing mail, using my gmail account's smtp server (following a tutorial). My exim log file produces no errors, but messages from my contact form still are not delivered. This has turned out to be a huge, hair tearing situation and I'm at a loss on what to do next.

Ubuntu Servers :: PECL Error On Mail Server ?

May 27, 2011

I am currently installing a mail server to handle email for our clients, I have started this server from scratch using Ubuntu server 11.04.

So far I've installed Exim, SA, Dovecot, and Clam AV and those all seem to be working as they should, I can send and receive email...

I am now trying to set up Horde, Horde 4 to be exact, I have been following the documentation on the Horde site :[url]

Part 4, it is recommended to install certain PECL modules, and I would like these as well.

I have been try to get these to go, but just can't get past some of the error messages like this, for the first one:

Cannot find config.m4.

Make sure that you run '/usr/bin/phpize' in the top level source directory of the module

ERROR: `phpize' failed

Does any one know what this error mean. From what I can gather, it's looking for the phpize when the module is to be installed, however, how can I put the phpize file (or link) in the top level of the source directory before I have the source?

Ubuntu Servers :: Mail Server For 400 Small Domains - Which One To Use?

Sep 1, 2011

I am going to try and replace our crappy Windows/imail server with a new ubuntu 10.04 LTS based machine. It will end up with about 400 domains on it with around 3000 users total. 96% of the domains have very light use. 4% of the domains have heavy use but do not send any bulk mail.

Can someone here recommend a mail server software package that would be easy to administrate and easy to backup/replicate? All we need is POP with webmail. We do not need IMAP or want any group/collaborative functions.

What do you usually use for anti-spam on a linux mail server? We want to keep it all open source if possible.

For hardware we are looking at an HP DL360 G5 with dual Xeons, 4G of ram, and the P400 controller with 6 SAS 15k drives. Do you think a server like this will be able to handle the mail on linux? Volume is around 400k messages a day inbound with about 10% being legit/90% being spam. The server will be dedicated to mail hosting and will not host websites.

Debian :: Exim Startup Script - Avoid Automatic Start Of Mail Server

Jun 9, 2011

after installing Debian, I typed the command:

update-rc.d -f exim4 remove

to avoid automatic start of this mail server (I use qmail). After several months, I did a reboot and exim is started! Looking at the history, I found this command:

Quote: dpkg-reconfigure exim4-config

Maybe this command has restored the init script of exim?

Ubuntu Servers :: Client Can't Connect To Mail Server / Get It To Work?

Nov 19, 2010

I followed this tutorial:
Minus the Quota for the mailboxes, since I don't really care about that. But I don't think that should cause any problems in the configuration.
The server is in my local network.

I tried to connect with Thunderbird and Kmail. Kmal brings up an error message eventually, saying something about a time-out.
Squirrelmail says code...

I searched everything & everywhere only to see that more people have that same error message come up with Squirrelmail. From my understanding some have fixed the issue but I couldn't actually find a solution to this.

Does anyone know how to fix this?
