Virtual Users With Postfix, PostfixAdmin, Courier, Mailscanner, ClamAV On CentOS - Page 8
MailScanner is an open-source E-mail program to secure against spam and viruses.
I prefer it above amavisd, because it has clamav and spamassin support built in and it’s easier to configure and to maintain.
Make sure you have the chroot jail set up in /var/spool/postfix. You should be able to see etc, usr and lib directories inside /var/spool/postfix). If you haven't got the chroot jail setup already, then look in the examples directory of the Postfix documentation and you will find a script in there to set up it up for your operating system. If you can't find that, then see the "Problems or Errors" section further down this page.
sh postfix-chroot.sh enable
warning: SASL authentication failure: cannot connect to Courier authdaemond: No such file or directory Move saslauthd's socket dir inside Postfix's chroot and create a link to keep everybody happy:
Restart Postfix and start saslauthd:
At this point, things change from the setup for other MTAs as we can make it run with just one copy of Postfix, and let Postfix do the "split MTA" setup for us. In the Postfix configuration file /etc/postfix/main.cf add this line:
header_checks = regexp:/etc/postfix/header_checks
In the file /etc/postfix/header_checks add this line:
The effect of this is to tell Postfix to move all messages to the HOLD queue.
In your MailScanner.conf file (probably in /etc/MailScanner or /opt/MailScanner/etc), there are five settings you need to change. They are all really near the top of the file. The settings are:
Run As User = postfix Run As Group = postfix Incoming Queue Dir = /var/spool/postfix/hold Outgoing Queue Dir = /var/spool/postfix/incoming MTA = postfix
You will need to ensure that the user postfix can write to /var/spool/MailScanner/incoming and /var/spool/MailScanner/quarantine:
chown postfix.postfix /var/spool/MailScanner/incoming chown postfix.postfix /var/spool/MailScanner/quarantine
If you upgrade your copy of MailScanner, unfortunately these directories will be changed back to being owned by root, so you will have to do those two commands again.
That’s it for mailscanner, you can config to your personal needs by edditing the /etc/Mailscanner/MailScanner.conf.
