    Hi all..

    I've a mail marketing system running in ISPConfig..

    Thats ok, ISPConfig is very fast..

    But I need to make my postfix to change IP/hostname while send the list of e-mails.

    It's possible? Is necessary to run another instance of postfix? How can I do to use more SMTP's (ips/hostnames) in the same ispconfig server?

    The IP that postfix uses is set with the parameter smtp_bind_address in the postfix file. You can e.g. change the IP there and then restart postfix.

    Ok Till, but I could put it in cron to restart postfix and change this parameter? I'll have a problems with items scheduled?

    Yes, you can put that into cron.

    I dont think so, asl all mails get kept in the queue.

    Ok Till..

    What the difference between inet_interfaces and smtp_bind_address ?

    If I input all ip's in inet_interfaces parameter, fix my solicitation?

    I read about parameters:

    Code:      inet  n       -       -       -       -       smtpd
    If I input in all ip's fix the my solicitation?

    Falko and Till..

    I create a script to change the value of "smtp_bind_address" every minute. But, when I set this parameter on, I get this message:

    Mar 28 19:14:04 turbo amavis[16754]: (16754-08) (!)DENIED ACCESS from IP 187.x.x.15, policy bank ''
    Mar 28 19:14:04 turbo postfix/smtp[17458]: 4EFAB50C16F4: to=<[email protected]>, relay=[]:10024, delay=0.1, delays=0.09/0.01/0/0, dsn=4.4.2, status=deferred (lost connection with[] while receiving the initial server greeting)
    What is this??

    In Amavis configuration file You have to add IP which is blocked. For example
    Debian 6.0
    /etc/amavis/conf.d/05-domain - add line

    @inet_acl = qw( [::1] 187.x.x.15/32);

    next restart amavis service, and should working.
    I'm not sure is it correct, but in my case it's working..

    Hi skangraf, thanks for reply..

    When I insert:

    @inet_acl = qw( [::1] 187.x.x.0/24);
    The parameter

    smtp_bind_address = 187.x.x.28
    is ignored...

    Try to add to

    smtp_bind_addres = 187.x.x.28

    and I'm not sure but Your @inet_acl line should be as follow

    @inet_acl = qw( [::1] 187.x.x.28/32);
    @inet_acl = qw( [::1] 187.x.x.28);

    Don't forget restart Postfix and amavis service

    did this work for you?

    I want to do the same, i would like to always send from a differant ip.

    i did add to

    smtp_bind_addres = to

    and restart postfix but it still sends from the default ip

    i have a standard ispconfig ubuntu 10.4 lts

    any ideas!

    Hi i tried to create another instance of myy postfix server.

    In my server tehere two eth interface and therefore i have two ip e two hostname.

    I tried to use first host to send an email with my email client and i had success.

    If i try to send by second host i have error. I followed this doc
    without postfix -c /etc/postfix-out start

    because in my debian script there is option for multi instance. Where i wrong ? Thanks
