  • Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier, MySQL And SquirrelMail (Fedora 14 x86_64)

    fedora Author: falkoTags: , , Comments: 3

    Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier, MySQL And SquirrelMail (Fedora 14 x86_64) This document describes how to install a Postfix mail server that is based on virtual users and domains, i.e. users and domains that are in a MySQL database. I'll also demonstrate the installation and configuration of Courier (Courier-POP3, Courier-IMAP), so that Courier can authenticate against the same MySQL database Postfix uses. The resulting Postfix server is capable of SMTP-AUTH and TLS and quota (quota is not built into Postfix by default, I'll show how to patch your Postfix appropriately). Passwords are stored in encrypted form in the database (most documents I found were dealing with plain text passwords which is a security risk). In addition to that, this tutorial covers the installation of Amavisd, SpamAssassin and ClamAV so that emails will be scanned for spam and viruses. I will also show how to install SquirrelMail as a webmail interface so that users can read and send emails and change their passwords.

    postfix Author: cryptedTags: , Comments: 1

    Spam Control For Postfix Spam is a major problem for anyone with a mail server. Many times, spam goes to email addresses that don't exist. But, it still is hitting your server even if it isn't delivered. Other times, a users inbox will be overflowing with annoying messages about Viagra, hookers, free software, and whatever else. Below is a solution. It's an ongoing accumulation of my efforts to stop spam to the best of my abilities. So far, it has a 97% success rate with over 20,000 emails (spam and ham, alike) processed.

    fedora Author: falkoTags: , , Comments: 0

    Fight Image Spam With FuzzyOCR And SpamAssassin On Fedora 12 This tutorial describes how to scan emails for image spam with FuzzyOCR on a Fedora 12 server.
