Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier And MySQL (Ubuntu 6.10 Edgy Eft)

Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier And MySQL (Ubuntu 6.10 Edgy Eft)

This document describes how to install a mail server based on Postfix that is based on virtual users and domains, i.e. users and domains that are in a MySQL database. I'll also demonstrate the installation and configuration of Courier (Courier-POP3, Courier-IMAP), so that Courier can authenticate against the same MySQL database Postfix uses. The resulting Postfix server is capable of SMTP-AUTH and TLS and quota. In addition to that, this tutorial covers the installation of Amavisd, SpamAssassin and ClamAV so that emails will be scanned for spam and viruses.

Integrating amavisd-new Into Postfix For Spam- And Virus-Scanning

Integrating amavisd-new Into Postfix For Spam- And Virus-Scanning

This article shows how to integrate amavisd-new into a Postfix mail server for spam- and virus-scanning. amavisd-new is a high-performance interface between MTAs such as Postfix and content checkers: virus scanners, and/or SpamAssassin. We will use ClamAV for virus scanning and SpamAssassin for spam scanning in this tutorial.

How To Implement SPF In Postfix

How To Implement SPF In Postfix

This tutorial shows how to implement SPF (Sender Policy Framework) in a Postfix 2.x installation. The Sender Policy Framework is an open standard specifying a technical method to prevent sender address forgery. There are lots of SPF extensions and patches available for Postfix, but most require that you recompile Postfix. Therefore we will install the postfix-policyd-spf-perl package from openspf.org which is a Perl package and can be implemented in existing Postfix installations (no Postfix compilation required).

Set Up Postfix For Relaying Emails Through Another Mailserver

Set Up Postfix For Relaying Emails Through Another Mailserver

This short guide shows how you can set up Postfix to relay emails through another mailserver. This can be useful if you run a Postfix mailserver in your local network and have a dynamic IP address because most dynamic IP addresses are blacklisted today. By relaying your emails through another mailserver that is hosted on a static IP address in a data center (e.g. your ISP's mailserver) you can prevent your emails from being categorized as spam.

Autoresponders to accompany Virtual Users and Domains with Postfix, Courier and MySQL

Autoresponders to accompany Virtual Users and Domains with Postfix, Courier and MySQL

This guide focuses on making Yaa! (Yet Another Autoresponder!) work with Debian Sarge and the virtual users on Postfix tutorial (see http://www.howtoforge.com/virtual_postfix_mysql_quota_courier). The first thing to understand about the guide is that it uses the Virtual  Delivery Agent (VDA) and as a result any of the auto responders that you could use by passing them to a pipe via a .forward file simply won't work as the VDA does not support .forward expansions.  This limitation can be overcome via Procmail/Maildrop delivery but that is messy and slower especially for mail systems that are heavily used.  The simple answer is Yaa!

Postfix with dkfilter (DomainKeys Implementation)

Postfix with dkfilter (DomainKeys Implementation)

DomainKeys is an anti-spam software application in development at Yahoo that uses a form of public key cryptography to authenticate the sender's domain. dkfilter is an SMTP-proxy designed for Postfix. It implements DomainKeys message signing and verification. It comprises two separate filters, an "outbound" filter for signing outgoing email on port 587, and an "inbound" filter for verifying signatures of incoming email on port 25. This document is to describe step by step how to install dkfilter for postfix to deploy domainkeys signing and verification.

Enhance Your Mail Server With ASSP (Anti-Spam SMTP Proxy)

Enhance Your Mail Server With ASSP (Anti-Spam SMTP Proxy) 

ASSP stands for Anti-Spam SMTP Proxy. The ASSP server project is an Open Source platform-independent transparent SMTP proxy server that leverages numerous methodologies and technologies to both rigidly and adaptively identify spam. In short ASSP is the most kickass solution that is both free and works great. It reduced spam to an absurd minimum for me.
