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).
Prevent Phishing with Mutual Authentication
Phishing is a man-in-the-middle attack. While many people think using time-bound, one-time passwords will solve the problem, they are wrong as attacks will just become automated. What is required is strong mutual authentication - authentication of the host to the user as well as the user to the host. This article demonstrates how to do that using open-source software from WiKID.
Fight Image Spam With FuzzyOCR And SpamAssassin On Debian/Ubuntu
This tutorial describes how to scan emails for image spam with FuzzyOCR. FuzzyOCR is a plugin for SpamAssassin which is aimed at unsolicited bulk mail containing images as the main content carrier. Using different methods, it analyzes the content and properties of images to distinguish between normal mails (ham) and spam mails. FuzzyOCR tries to keep the system load low by scanning only mails that have not already been categorized as spam by SpamAssassin, thus avoiding unnecessary work.
Virtual Users With Postfix, PostfixAdmin, Courier, Mailscanner, ClamAV On CentOS
In this how to I will explain how to setup a Postfix virtual mailserver with Courier-IMAP, Maildrop and Postfix Admin GUI. We will secure our mailserver with Mailscanner and Clamav as anti-virus and Spamassassin as anti-spam.
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.
How To Automatically Scan Uploaded Files For Viruses With php-clamavlib
This guide describes how you can automatically scan files uploaded by users through a web form on your server using PHP and ClamAV. That way you can make sure that your upload form will not be abused to distribute malware. To glue PHP and ClamAV, we install the package php5-clamavlib/php4-clamavlib which is rather undocumented at this time. That package is available for Debian Etch and Sid and also for Ubuntu Dapper Drake and Edgy Eft, so make sure you use one of these platforms.
Set Up Ubuntu-Server 6.06 LTS As A Firewall/Gateway For Your Small Business EnvironmentThis tutorial shows how to set up a Ubuntu 6.06 LTS server ("Dapper Drake") as a firewall and gateway for small/medium networks. The article covers the installation/configuration of services such as Shorewall, NAT, caching nameserver, DHCP server, VPN server, Webmin, Munin, Apache, Squirrelmail, Postfix, Courier IMAP and POP3, SpamAssassin, ClamAV, and many more.
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)
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.
