I am new to mail servers. I am setting this up as a learning project. if anyone is able to assist I would appreciate it very much. Hopefully others reading may learn also. I've managed to set up scalix and get it all working, it's not being used in a production environment at present. Just a home learning enviroment. I would like to add extra security and Rocky's spamsnake seems to have a very good collection of spam and virus tools. It's taking me ages to get through the how to. I am finding it to be an excellent howto just a little time consuming as I am trying my best to understand it all as I am progressing through it. I am currently up to section 9.24 Mail scanner web page is up and everything is working and updating correctly in the tool/links section. I have not got mail going through it yet so I can't see any mail items listed on the page yet. I am very keen to test it all. I am getting close to the end where I hope to add the spamsnake proxy infront of scalix however I am not sure how to do this. On the incoming direction; I know that I will need to forward port 25 from my router to the spamsnake proxy's IP address, but I am not sure where to go from here. I am guessing that I will need to send the mail on from the spamsnake to scalix on another port as I expect scalix would usually be listening on 25. How is this achieved? On the outgoing direction I am not sure what to do. At present mail seems be be leaving scalix ok, I can receive it in a gmail mail act ok. I feel that a more correct set up would be for scalix to be redirected out the spamsnake proxy. Thanks again if anyone is able to assist or point me in the right direction.
