    it looks like the has changed my settings after updating 3.1 to the newest version.
    ( at least there was no postfix updates for months)

    i had removed the settings: reject_invalid_helo_hostname, reject_unknown_helo_hostname

    The reasen is that i see a lot of bounced emails from legitim emailadresses but with companys that has his helo adres not set correct.
    But todasy i noticed that the settings are back in the
    is there a way to prefent this?

    chattr +i filename
    makes it immune against modifications

    chattr -i filename
    makes it editable again.

    yes i know that way but that also gives this problems when updating postfix

    i was wondering why these settings are getting set back?

    ISPConfig updates settings on update in services that are configured by ISPConfig. If you want to use a custom config, then copy the matching config file template from install/tpl/ of the ispconfig tar.gz to the folder /usr/local/ispconfig/server/conf-custom/install/

    so you prefer reject_invalid_helo_hostname, reject_unknown_helo_hostname
    to be on...
    when this check is on a lot of legimit emails in holland are getting bloocked from big companys that af wrong settings in there mailserver.
    Not my problem as a provider a provider but it is for my costumers:
    here is a example
    Helo command rejected: Host not found; from=<[email protected]>

    that does look like an issue with the response time or filtering of their network. you might need to increase the timeout for your lookups and run a local dns cache / increase dns cache to reduce impact. just tried to load and ping the page ... ugh awful initial response time for me right now.

    Oct 15 07:51:42 mail01 postfix/smtpd[22993]: NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from[]: 450 4.7.1 <>: Helo command rejected: Host not found; from=<[email protected]> to=<[email protected]> proto=ESMTP helo=<>

    What i see is that the helo is different from the reverse dns
