    Hi

    Currently my Mail Server is Mercury32 on a Windows 2003 Server, with ClamAv, SpamHalter, Content and Transaction Filtering.

    I've followed this HowTo :
    http://www.howtoforge.com/virtual-us...ail-ubuntu8.10

    and now have Postfix, Courier, MySQL, SquirrelMail, SMTP-AUTH, TLS , Quota, Amavisd, SpamAssassin and ClamAV installed.

    All went quite well apart from 2 typo's from me :rolleyes:
    I've installed this in a virtual Ubuntu 8.10 desktop edition.

    I'm currently waiting for DNS entries to update on an old domain I have to test this properly, but things are looking OK at the moment.

    Seems to be working well, but I have a couple of questions..

    1. How do I tell if ClamAV is up to date ? How do I get FreshClam to update daily.

    2. Can I add more DNSBL entries to either PostFix or SpamAssassin ?

    3. Is it possible to block hosts who don't have properly formed domain name in the ehlo/helo ? But have a couple of exceptions (for family) ?

    4. Is there any way to have the system move 'spam' or potential spam to another user for checking through later ?

    5. Any way to monitor all the logs in a simpler way ? using System Log shows lots of info, but most of it is mixed in with other entries.

    Thanks :)

    AFAIK freshclam is updating daily. I think you can configure this in freshclam.conf.

    Take a look here: http://www.howtoforge.com/block_spam_at_mta_level_postfix
    I'm not sure if exceptions are possible.

    You can specify a quarantine user in the amavisd configuration.

    The mail logs are in /var/log/mail.log.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Do you know where the default locations for clam.conf / freshclam.conf are ??

    Also where amavisd conf is ?

    Thanks again.

    I've found the conf files thanks.

    Quick question is this setup using clamav or clamd ?

    How easy would it be to make it use clamd ?

    I've installed SafeSquid and that can use clamd as well.
    Thanks

    Ahh.. :confused:#

    How can I tell what port it is running on ?

    Also is there anyway to get more logging output from amavis-new or clamd ?

    Whilst I'm testing this it would be nice to see a lot more detail on anything that has been scanned and/or blocked.

    Just need to work out how to add the exceptions to Postfix.. Hopefully that can be done.

    Thanks

    I'm not sure if you can put amavisd and/or clamd in debugging mode. If it is possible, there should be something mentioned about it in the configuration files.

    Thanks for the reply.

    How do I check clamd is running ?
    doing netstat -tap doesn't show any ports in use by clamd !!
