    I am using the tutorial at https://www.howtoforge.com/postfix_spf and I have a Debian Jessie server running in AWS EC2 using ISPConfig 3.0.5.4. everything works including DNS, reverse DNS, mail and Amazon lifted limit on mail and set up reverse DNS. I am wanting to get SPF working.
    When installing "install Mail::SPF" I have errors at the end, not sure what they mean:
    Code:
    [email protected]:/home/admin# perl -MCPAN -e shell
    Terminal does not support AddHistory.
    
    cpan shell -- CPAN exploration and modules installation (v2.05)
    Enter 'h' for help.

    That tutorial looks pretty dated, try simply:
    Code:
    apt-get install postfix-policyd-spf-perl
    to install the same policy daemon with its dependencies. IIRC, you still have to add an entry to master.cf (but the package installer might do that for you, too).

    One piece that seems to be missing from tutorial for an ISPConfig server is that the changes you make to smtpd_recipient_restrictions shouldn't just be made directly in main.cf, or they will be overwritten the next time you update ispconfig and reconfigure services. Instead, you should copy debian_postfix.conf.master from the ispconfig install sources (in your case, that would be https://git.ispconfig.org/ispconfig/ispconfig3/raw/3.0.5.4/install/tpl/debian_postfix.conf.master) and save it as /usr/local/ispconfig/server/conf-custom/install/debian_postfix.conf.master, and also make your changes there.

    Better yet, update to a current ispconfig version first, then copy that debian_postfix.conf.master template and make your changes.
