    Debian add package to dpkg --list

    Ok, I have followed this tutorial : but on a ubuntu natty (11.04) version. I have installed the latest version of all the packages I could but now I am stuck installing baruwa_1.1.0-3~natty_all.deb and baruwa-doc_1.1.0-3~natty_all.deb because it says this:

    Dependency is not satisfiable: mailscanner (>= 4.80.10)
    The thing is that I am running MailScanner 4.85 (the latest) but it isn't shown in the debian's installed packages list.

    So is there any1 to add that the mailscanner is installed and using x version?

    There is the command dpkg --list but where is the db that contains all those lines so I can add my own.

    If package A is depending on package B .. there's a big change you cannot install package A when you've installed package B from tarballs. Since the binaries and libraries are different as to which package A is compiled against.

    In windows they'll call it dll hell :)

    I suggest you install the debian package of mailscanner.

    The debian package provided is older then requested. It's 4.79.11-2.1 and baruwa 1.1.3 request >= 4.80.

    So as I asked, how can I do to just add a simple line where it identifies mailscanner as installed with the corresponding version.

    Ok I have fixed that error by extracting the .deb and removing where it said that it needed amavis x. But my problem is now that celeryd is not working so that means that baruwa is not working.

    Can somebody help me configuring The Perfect SpamSnake on Natty?

    If you're using packages from the same repository it WILL work and you won't have any dependency problems. If you start using custom build packages from websites, you can run into these problems .. From my experience i can tell you it's better to either run some older versions and use the repo for it, or go all out on tarballs (but that's a bitch to maintain if you're rushing into it).

    don't mind the older versions, since the security updates will also be done on the older builds in the repo.

    Add baruwa source via

    Install python-django-celery python-importlib

    That will install all the depends for Baruwa, including celeryd.

    Ok it was easier than it looked to setup spamsnake on ubuntu natty but I do have some issues.

    Now is when I learned that networks you establish in mynetworks are like a whitelist. So that means my other domain that uses these ips / / they're not filtered, they are just allowed to send directly.

    the look_ahead = check_recipient_access hash:/etc/postfix/access it just checks to see if the destination user exists, right?

    Why when I send an email from outside the mynetworks it happens this:
    1. It receives it
    2. It filters it
    3. And it's saved as filter
    4. The destination user doesn't receive it
    5. The sender user gets it back with mail for loops back to myself

    Make mydestination blank, reload postfix and try it again.

    Yes, look_ahead checks to see if the user exists.
