I have a very basic install of dovecot and postfix on the latest version of Ubuntu server. This is an internal only email server with internal only DNS. I can send email via clients and check said emails via the command line when logged in as the appropriate user. I cannot for the life of me check said emails via SquirrelMail on the server nor using IMAP clients. I have no idea where to look and I can't find a basic tutorial for the life of me. Where should I start?
I have an email server configured with postfix, dovecot, saslauthd and squirrelmail. It works great. In fact I'd even say it works too well: in squirrelmail, I can configure any sender address and my server will accept it. Message will be sent, wether the sender's address is [URL] or [URL]. Is there any way of limiting it in such way that only [URL] is accepted as sender's address?
I have an email setup where all of the emails from our email host is downloaded to our Linux server using Fetchmail. Then some of the incoming emails are sent to an MS exchange server (server1.domain.com) using Postfix. What i want to do is to send a copy of all emails to Another server (server2.domain.com) for redundancy.Can postfix be configured to send copies out to both?
So I've tried finding a solution to this on my own for the past few days (believing it is a simple solution), but for the life of me I can't figure it out. I'm running 11.2 and I have Evolution as a start-up program and I have finally got my wireless working, so it connects automatically at start-up also. I figured out how to have network manager automatically unlock the default keyring, but...
Each time evolution starts up I am prompted to unlock the default keyring. How can I give Evolution permission / access to the default keyring automatically so it can check me email upon start-up without me having to type in my password?
I want to setup an email client in order to send/receive emails, but since i am experiencing some issues with my ISP, i decided to setup an SMTP server with Postfix on my machine.The problem is that i can receive emails but i can not send.I read almost every thread in here refering to Postfix, but i could not find the problem on my configuration.So here it is..
Code: # See /usr/share/postfix/main.cf.dist for a commented, more complete version # Debian specific: Specifying a file name will cause the first
When DNS server is configured on Windows server, it will automatically detect and catch computer names and IP address. With Linux (BIND), I have to enter each clients manual under zone file. example (computer1 IN A 10.10.1.4). is there anyway to make Linux detect client automatically as windows does?
we had a server with Hostway, and it was running ubuntu. The server also had Plesk installed, which did some funny things. We had several websites on that server, and many email addresses. Then we changed servers. Now we have a server through Rackspace and it is also running Ubuntu. It also has Virtualmin installed, which generally does not impose as many unconventional changes on Ubuntu as Plesk did.
Rather than using Thunderbird to download my email (which is what I used to do) I've decided I'll start reading my email on the server. So I will ssh to the server and then use some email client, such as Alpine, to read the email. So I installed Alpine. I have an email account for "lawrence". The email address is lawrence @ krubner. Currently, when mail arrives for that account, it is stored here:
and then it is transferred to hear:
When I start Alpine, while logged in as lawrence, Alpine automatically sets up an inbox for me here:
How do I get Alpine (or any other client) to read from the correct folder? I'm fairly sure the email package (the MTA) at work on this new server is Postfix. As near as I can tell, my email is held for 24 hours in this folder:
and then it gets transferred here:
Alpine only lets me set one path for my Inbox, so I'm not sure what path I should set. If I use "cur" I will see all email 1 day late, but if I use "new" then I will miss email if I go a day without checking.
In my Windows environment, I use email client such as Microsoft Outlook to connect to our email server to send email with the following configuration:
Incoming server (POP3): 995 - (requires with SSL) Outgoing server (SMTP): 465 - (use encrypted connection SSL)
And the mail server requires user ID login and password.how do I setup a text command based email client in my Linux (Centos 5.1) to send out email through the existing email server above, which is in another machine? The email client has to be text command based because I need to use command line to send notification email from anothar application installed in my Linux (Centos 5.1) Since the email client will only be used to send email notification, I don't require setting up of an email server in my linux.
I just recently installed Fedora 11 and I notice that the network connection will not connect automatically. Basically I am trying to get to a point where it automatically connects without anyone logged in. (I hope that makes sense) Right now I have to log in as a user in order to get eth1 to connect and get an IP.
I work from home writing web content, and need the use of an article spinner tool called "The Best spinner". It is an .exe file and I installed it in my Mint Debian edition machine using wine, and everything is fine except for one thing. The app opens out, connects to the net, and then closes automatically. In fact if I check on the internet activity, I can see the app downloading the latest version, but the problem is that always it closes within a few seconds leaving me no other choice other than to log into a windows machine to work on it.
I uninstalled and reinstalled the app a couple of times but it does not seem to have helped. It requires the .net packages in winetricks, and I read that wine does not support net very well, yet the app is installed and even connects to the net. I don't understand the underlying process of how windows apps work in wine. Any work around considering that I never log into windows for anything other than using this app, a workaround means that windows is gone forever from my life.
I have configured a VPN connection to a remote router which connects ok. I can ping the remote router IP, but cannot ping any other IP on their network.I have put this down to needing a route added. I can manually type # route add -net 192.168.1.0 netmask 255.255. 255.0 dev ppp0 and all works like I want it to, but I really need this to be automatic everytime the connection starts.I have tried following URL... but cant get it to work. The file is called /etc/ppp/ip-up.d/routing and has execution priviledges (755) so ive hit a dead end.
1st, i managed to make a VPN connection to my server and after a reboot i get this:I've tried everything that google gives me with "ubuntu vpn service failed to start pptp" search terms.2nd, I've got a DSL connection (PPPoE) to the internet. When i connect it, eth0 looses it's ipv4 ip (I've disabled ipv6). How can I keep it?
I am trying to prepare procedures for email restoration following a file system loss that contained user Maildir directories. Assuming that my most recent backup is earlier than the last time that many users received and downloaded email, the restored mail directories will not contain messages that were previously received and downloaded to clients following the backup and preceding the crash. This is not a problem in itself, however, it does appear to cause problems for the email clients.
My desire would be for email clients (outlook, outlook express, thunderbird) to properly recognize the messages that currently exist on the server, ignore previously downloaded messages and download newly arriving messages.The behavior that I am seeing is that the email client fails to recognize that any new messages exist and fails to download any messages at all. By removing the dovecot.index... files and the uidlist file, the clients will download ALL messages that are present in the "new" and "cur" directories even if previously downloaded. This is also an undesirable outcome.
now my system does not connects automatically when fedora start's to eth0 i have to connect it manually by pull down menu in the beginning hostnname was dbe272b22.dslam-172-17-161-245-0532-474.dsl.cantv.net i do not remember if the last part ".cantv.net" was there.... i changed hostname "dbe272b22.dslam-172-17-161-245-0532-474.dsl" maybe ending with ".cantv.net" with system-config-network for hostname "edicta" i modified /etc/hosts by hand twice, now do not remember what i did exacly but here you can see /etc/hosts
I have recently setup a new mail server and have simulated sending and receiving on the new email server. The new email server will replace the primary one.I would like to setup the new email server in parallel with the existing one.This way i can observe issues that might occur and be aware of what could go wrong. I want to received mail to be delivered to both mail servers at the same time.I would like to use postfix, exim i find a bit to difficult to understand.I have thought of using transport maps, the only problem is that you can only forward mail to one server at a time using transport maps.I think recipient_bcc_maps and sender_bcc_maps could work, i would just like ideas of how i can do this.
How to copy a Read-Only file in Linux and make the copy writable with a single cp command in Linux (Ubuntu 10.04)? The --no-preserve and --preserve seemed to be good candidates, except that they should "and" the mode flags, while what I am looking for is something that will "or" them (add +w mode).
More details: I have to import a repository from GIT to Perforce. I want that all Perforce depot files are Read-Only (that is how Perforce was designed), while all other files that were derived/copied from depot files are writable. Currently if a Makefile tries to copy a Read-Only file then the derived file will also be Read-only. This leads to build-errors when cp tries to overwrite Read-Only file second time. Of course the --force is a workaround here but then the derived file is also Read-Only. Also I do not want to mess with "chmod" after each "cp" command - I will do that only as the last resort.
I am trying to set up a mail server on centos5 using sendmail and dovecot, and eventually spamassassin and some antivirus filter as well. I'd also like to get the proper secure auth mechanism set up at some point too. But for starters, I've been having a lot of difficulty trying to even connect to the mail server from a client computer in the local network. I installed Eudora on the client and after some tweaking in dovecot I was able to connect to the mail server, but then when I try to send an email I get a "connection refused" error, with nothing being logged on the server that I can see.
The last time I set up a mail server was Fedora Core 2, so the configuration files have changed a bit to say the least, and I can't really refer back to those to set up this new server. Does anybody know of a good step-by-step doc on getting the mail server going? I've read the man pages and other various readme's, but these really only list out the available options with no really good explanation of what needs to be done to get the mail server going. If there isn't a full write-up on how to do this, I'll put something together when I'm finished so others can use it in the future.
All of a sudden, I could not connect to my ubuntu 10.10 server from Windows 7 using vnc this morning. When I open vnc on windows 7 and hit connect, it goes away like its going to connect but never pops up the screen. If I try to connect to my other ubuntu server, it connects quick and I'm able to navigate in it.
I am having trouble getting grub to automatically boot into ubuntu server. When I turn on my server the grub menu shows up and shows me the choices. They all work fine except that grub wont automatically select one. This wouldn't be too much of a problem but this is a headless server and I can't boot into ubuntu without a keyboard. I tried looking through the grub 2 documentation but nothing seemed to work when I edited the conf file.
I have a little home server with Ubuntu 10.10, actually it is already backing up my web hosting daily via a cron.daily script.. But I would like to do the same with my Windows laptop, which would it be the best way to do so?
since the Ubuntu pc is (almost) always turned on it would be no profit to have it mount the Win PC at startup, indeed I could have a cron.hourly script to check if the Laptop is connected to the network and to back it up once a day, thus by checking a small text file with written the date of the last backup BTW how do I check if the Win PC is connected to the network? How do I mount it via samba? Do you suggest to backup stuff simply moving files, via tar (as I already do with my web host) or with rsync?
I have configured server ubuntu 11.04. Everything works fine, but there is a need for some clients to connect local hard drive. What should I do? How and what modules are added to the ltsp-image? How to register in the fstab on the client? Maybe I'm going the wrong way?
