  1. Configure Postfix

Configure Postfix

Postfix must be configured to use MySQL:

The following variables in main.cf. Start with filling some basic info:

# postconf -e 'myhostname = mx-1.example.com'
# postconf -e 'smtpd_banner = $myhostname ESMTP $mail_name (Debian/GNU)'
# postconf -e 'biff = no'
# postconf -e 'append_dot_mydomain = no'
# postconf -e 'myorigin = example.com'
# postconf -e 'mydestination = $myhostname, localhost, locahost.localdomain'
# postconf -e 'mynetworks = 127.0.0.0/8'
# postconf -e 'recipient_delimiter = +'
# postconf -e 'inet_interfaces = all'
# postconf -e 'proxy_read_maps = $local_recipient_maps $mydestination \
    $virtual_alias_maps $virtual_alias_domains $virtual_mailbox_maps \
    $virtual_mailbox_domains $relay_recipient_maps $relay_domains \
    $canonical_maps $sender_canonical_maps $recipient_canonical_maps \
    $relocated_maps $transport_maps $mynetworks $virtual_mailbox_limit_maps'

# postconf -e 'smtpd_recipient_restrictions = \
    permit_mynetworks, \
    reject_unauth_destination, \
    reject_rbl_client zen.spamhaus.org, \
    reject_rbl_client list.dsbl.org, \
    permit'
# postconf -e 'message_size_limit=52428800'
# postconf -e 'mailbox_size_limit=0'

Now configure it for virtual users in MySQL:

# postconf -e 'virtual_alias_domains ='
# postconf -e 'virtual_alias_maps = proxy:mysql:$config_directory/mysql_virtual_alias_maps.cf'
# postconf -e 'virtual_mailbox_domains = proxy:mysql:$config_directory/mysql_virtual_domains_maps.cf'
# postconf -e 'virtual_mailbox_maps = proxy:mysql:$config_directory/mysql_virtual_mailbox_maps.cf'
# postconf -e 'virtual_mailbox_base = /vmail'
# postconf -e 'virtual_minimum_uid = 150'
# postconf -e 'virtual_uid_maps = static:150'
# postconf -e 'virtual_gid_maps = static:8'
# postconf -e 'virtual_create_maildirsize = yes'
# postconf -e 'virtual_mailbox_extended = yes'
# postconf -e 'virtual_mailbox_limit_maps = proxy:mysql:/etc/postfix/mysql_virtual_mailbox_limit_maps.cf'
# postconf -e 'virtual_mailbox_limit_override = yes'
# postconf -e 'virtual_maildir_limit_message = "The user you are trying to reach has exceeded their quota."'
# postconf -e 'virtual_overquota_bounce = yes'
# postconf -e 'transport_maps = proxy:mysql:/etc/postfix/mysql_virtual_transports.cf'
# postconf -e 'relay_domains = proxy:mysql:/etc/postfix/mysql_relay_domains_maps.cf'

We will use Dovecot delivery:

# postconf -e 'virtual_transport=dovecot'
# postconf -e 'dovecot_destination_recipient_limit=1'
# postconf -e 'transport_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/transport'
# postconf -e 'smtpd_data_restrictions = reject_unauth_pipelining, reject_multi_recipient_bounce, permit'
# postconf -e 'vacation_destination_recipient_limit = 1'

Create the transport db:

# cd /etc/postfix
# postmap transport

Postfix was installed with MySQL support, but that doesn't mean it already knows how to use our database. It needs to be provided with various SQL-query information for each type of table in our database. This information is stored in the MySQL files defined in the main.cf file:

/etc/postfix/mysql_virtual_alias_maps.cf:

user = vmail_user
password = vmail_user_password
hosts = localhost
dbname = groupoffice
table = pa_aliases
select_field = goto
where_field = address
additional_conditions = and active = '1'

/etc/postfix/mysql_virtual_domains_maps.cf:

user = vmail_user
password = vmail_user_password
hosts = localhost
dbname = groupoffice
table = pa_domains
select_field = domain
where_field = domain
additional_conditions = and backupmx = '0' and active = '1'

/etc/postfix/mysql_virtual_mailbox_limit_maps.cf:

user = vmail_user
password = vmail_user_password
hosts = localhost
dbname = groupoffice
table = pa_mailboxes
select_field = quota
where_field = username
additional_conditions = and active = '1'

/etc/postfix/mysql_virtual_mailbox_maps.cf:

user = vmail_user
password = vmail_user_password
hosts = localhost
dbname = groupoffice
table = pa_mailboxes
select_field = maildir
where_field = username
additional_conditions = and active = '1'

/etc/postfix/mysql_virtual_transports.cf:

user = vmail_user
password = vmail_user_password
hosts = localhost
dbname = groupoffice
table = pa_domains
select_field = transport
where_field = domain
additional_conditions = and active = '1'

/etc/postfix/mysql_relay_domains_maps.cf:

user = vmail_user
password = vmail_user_password
hosts = localhost
dbname = groupoffice
table = pa_domains
select_field = domain
where_field = domain
additional_conditions = and backupmx = '1' and active = '1'

Add the mail user:

# useradd -r -u 150 -g mail -d /var/vmail -s /sbin/nologin -c "Virtual Mailbox" vmail
# mkdir /vmail
# chmod 770 /vmail/
# chown vmail:mail /vmail/

Edit Postfix master.cf:

Alter the first line with the smtp service:

smtp      inet  n       -       -       -       -       smtpd
	-o content_filter=spamassassin

After that line add:

spamassassin unix -     n       n       -       -       pipe
	user=spamd argv=/usr/bin/spamc -f -e
	/usr/sbin/sendmail -oi -f ${sender} ${recipient}
dovecot   unix  -       n       n       -       -       pipe
    flags=DRhu user=vmail:mail argv=/usr/lib/dovecot/deliver -d ${recipient}

At the interfaces to non-Postfix software add:

vacation    unix  -       n       n       -       -       pipe
  flags=Rq user=vacation argv=/var/spool/vacation/vacation.pl -f ${sender} -- ${recipient}

Create the transport db:

# cd /etc/postfix
# postmap transport

The above text should include the touch statement to create an empty transport file;

Create the transport db:

# cd /etc/postfix
# touch transport
# postmap transport
