View Full Version : mail handling question

found this in my mail log:

May 5 14:01:07 h1550830 postfix/smtpd[2167]: connect from server1.nicron.hu[]
May 5 14:01:08 h1550830 postgrey[2934]: action=pass, reason=recipient whitelist, client_name=server1.nicron.hu, client_address=, sender=abuse@rum-reisen.de, recipient=abuse@rum-reisen.de
May 5 14:01:08 h1550830 postfix/smtpd[2167]: NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from server1.nicron.hu[]: 550 5.1.1 : Recipient address rejected: User unknown in virtual mailbox table; from= to= proto=ESMTP helo=
May 5 14:01:08 h1550830 postfix/smtpd[2167]: disconnect from server1.nicron.hu[]

why would it say what I marked in red? This is obviously spam... but anyway it never made it into the inbox as the recipient address wasn't yet set up, just wondering...

Postgrey is not part of a normal ispconfig setup and has not been tested with it by the developers. So you will have to take a look into your postgrey settings and make sure that they are compatible with amavisd etc.

hadn't realizad it was a postgrey log :-( really sorry, now I undestand, I had misread, thought it was about a postfix whitelist :-(

(optional) exclude some recipients from whitelisting

edit /etc/postgrey/whitelist_recipient and add e.g. YOURDOMAIN.COM to exclude this address from greylisting processing.

# postgrey whitelist for mail recipients
# --------------------------------------
# put this file in /etc/postgrey or specify its path
# with --whitelist-recipients=xxx


that is where the acceptance came from...
