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 :: 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.

Ubuntu Servers :: Postfix Relay Mail For Local Users?

smtpd_recipient_restrictions = permit_mynetworks, reject_unauth_destination

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 :: Internal Mail Relay To Exchange Setup

Jan 25, 2010

I have ticket tracking software that mails ticket to groups. Right now the software is on an exchange server. After moving it to a dedicated linux server (debian lenny) I cant get it to email any of the internal domain addresses. I have tried to setup sendmail to relay it to the exchange server. Logs indicate that it was sent by the ticket tracking software but the message never hits the mailbox. It also wont get to any other mail address. Is there a better way to do this? The crm software will utilize either a smtp server or any mail server on the localhost. The problem is that with the dedicated server on the same network as the exchange server, it fails to send the mail even if I assign an external smtp server. But if the dedicated server is on a different network then it works using any smtp server in its configuration. I need something that can "pass the email" to the exchange server. Or just be able to send the mail to internal email account and still be on the same network.

Server :: Rejecting Mail Where Sender Matches Recipient In Postfix?

Aug 22, 2009

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.

Server :: Postfix Sends Mail To SPAM In Gemail (CentOS)?

Apr 16, 2011

I'm new here and I'm sure this question has been thrown around a lot but I just couldn't find a solution. I have a networking website I've setup and we need to send notification mails to our members depending on activity related to their profiles(messages, comments etc).We are hosting the site on Centos5.6 with VirtualMin and are using Postfix as our MTA. We also use google apps for email on the site. Heres the problem, the mails go through for some gmail users but more often than not, they end up in gmail,hotmail and yahoo spam.We've setup the appropriate SPF codes on the server, DKIM and rDNS works fine.v=spf1 ip4:xx.xx.xx.xx a mx include:_spf.google.com ~all Below is a sample email that goes directly into gmail spam. I've replaced the actual values with dummy text (Ip, Domain etc)

General :: Postfix Smarthost Not Relaying Mail To Exchange For One User

Sep 14, 2009

I have a RHEL 4.5 with Postfix 2.2.10 configured as a smart host for an Exchange 2003 server. Its been running well for three years like this. We have some users that are configured with alternate SMTP addresses for a secondary email domain in Exchange. One user is not getting his email for the secondary SMTP. All the others are. After some digging, the maillog indicates Postfix is not relaying his email to Exchange but to the Postfix local mail folder under /var/spool/mail. What in the configuration would cause this? His email is in the relay_recipients file as the others are.

CentOS 5 Server :: Postfix Save Mail Before Relying It To Exchange?

Jan 29, 2010

I have postfix setup right now and it's relying mail to our Exchange server fine. What i would like to do though is have postfix save the email that gets passed through so that if a manager deletes an email, it's easy to look through by date and find the email he's looking for. Well, I'm thinking it would be a lot easier then having to need to pull out the backup tape and try to recover one email. Does anyone know whether I would be able to accomplish this?

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?

Ubuntu Servers :: Mail SMTP Relay / Copy All Traffic To Another Port For Monitoring?

Sep 2, 2010

I'm running ASSP on Ubuntu 10.04.1 it's mostly working fine. I have one problem which has been bugging me for some time. I don't want to filter outbound mail, but if I can relay (proxy) my outbound mail through ASSP, then it can automatically add to the whitelist.

As ASSP is a proxy, I need a server to send it to once ASSP receives it. I've tried my ISP, but this failed and they weren't willing to confirm if a connection attempt was received at their end.

Current setup

Inbound

mx -> router -> ASSP -> Exchange 2003

Outbound

Exchange 2003 -> mx

I'd like to setup outbound as either

Exchange 2003 -> ASSP -> <ISP> SMTP relay
Exchange 2003 -> ASSP -> <relay running on Ubuntu eg postfix>

Can anyone help me with troubleshooting steps or a better suggestion for how I can set this up. I'd love to know why my ISP setup didn't work, but I don't know a tool for monitoring IP traffic in Ubuntu SE, in windows I use Wireshark is there any equivalent I can setup for Ubuntu or a tool I can use in windows which will show all traffic, Ubuntu and windows server are on the same netgear switch, not sure it's smart enough to copy all traffic to another port for monitoring.

Server :: Get Postfix To Deliver Valid Emails To Maildir And Relay Remaining?

Jan 20, 2010

I got a weird postfix setup question? This is a separate server to the one I posted about earlier today.

I need to setup a postfix server which will accept emails for local know address (full addresses) and deliver them straight to the users maildir.

Any unknown addresses (however for the same domain), needs to be relayed to another server.

This is a bit of a special setup as there is no fixed Internet connection to the server. So the plan is that local email get delivered straight away whilst emails to the same @domain, but that doesn't exist in the user tables get put in the hold queue and is later relayed to server number 2 when a connection is available.

I am using mysql to retrieve all my settings into postfix.

Ubuntu Servers :: Exim4 Sends Mail Correctly, But Wrong "from" Address?

Apr 5, 2010

I have a ubuntu server 9.10 installed with exim4 as MTA. I configured a mail address on it (let's say me@example.com). Before i had it working i had a other email configured (let's say me_2@example.com). At the time i had this one it didn't work i removed exim4.

Now i can successfully send mails with it by the configured me@example.com. I also configured the password for this, but when i receive the mail the old configured mail is presented as "from" (so from: me_2@example.com).

Anyone knows how this can be changed so it says the mail is from me@example.com? The mail is not an alias, and in a mail client they work separately.

I really want to get mail into the user's home directory.
