Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier, MySQL And SquirrelMail (Ubuntu 8.10) - Page 4

12 Test Postfix

To see if Postfix is ready for SMTP-AUTH and TLS, run

telnet localhost 25

After you have established the connection to your Postfix mail server type

ehlo localhost

If you see the lines

250-STARTTLS

and

250-AUTH LOGIN PLAIN

everything is fine:

root@server1:/usr/local/sbin# telnet localhost 25
Trying 127.0.0.1...
Connected to localhost.localdomain.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 server1.example.com ESMTP Postfix (Ubuntu)
ehlo localhost
250-server1.example.com
250-PIPELINING
250-SIZE 10240000
250-VRFY
250-ETRN
250-STARTTLS
250-AUTH LOGIN PLAIN
250-AUTH=LOGIN PLAIN
250-ENHANCEDSTATUSCODES
250-8BITMIME
250 DSN
quit
221 2.0.0 Bye
Connection closed by foreign host.
root@server1:/usr/local/sbin#

Type

quit

to return to the system shell.

 

13 Populate The Database And Test

To populate the database you can use the MySQL shell:

mysql -u root -p
USE mail;

At least you have to create entries in the tables domains and users:

INSERT INTO `domains` (`domain`) VALUES ('example.com');
INSERT INTO `users` (`email`, `password`, `quota`) VALUES ('sales@example.com', ENCRYPT('secret'), 10485760);

(Please take care that you use the ENCRYPT syntax in the second INSERT statement in order to encrypt the password!)

If you want to make entries in the other two tables, that would look like this:

INSERT INTO `forwardings` (`source`, `destination`) VALUES ('info@example.com', 'sales@example.com');
INSERT INTO `transport` (`domain`, `transport`) VALUES ('example.com', 'smtp:mail.example.com');

To leave the MySQL shell, type

quit;

For most people it is easier if they have a graphical front-end to MySQL; therefore you can also use phpMyAdmin (in this example under http://192.168.0.100/phpmyadmin/ or http://server1.example.com/phpmyadmin/) to administrate the mail database. Again, when you create a user, go sure that you use the ENCRYPT function to encrypt the password:

I do not think I have to explain the domains and users table further.

The forwardings table can have entries like the following:

source destination  
info@example.com sales@example.com Redirects emails for info@example.com to sales@example.com
@example.com thomas@example.com Creates a Catch-All account for thomas@example.com. All emails to example.com will arrive at thomas@example.com, except those that exist in the users table (i.e., if sales@example.com exists in the users table, mails to sales@example.com will still arrive at sales@example.com).
@example.com @anotherdomain.tld This redirects all emails to example.com to the same user at anotherdomain.tld. E.g., emails to thomas@example.com will be forwarded to thomas@anotherdomain.tld.
info@example.com sales@example.com, billing@anotherdomain.tld Forward emails for info@example.com to two or more email addresses. All listed email addresses under destination receive a copy of the email.

The transport table can have entries like these:

domain transport  
example.com : Delivers emails for example.com locally. This is as if this record would not exist in this table at all.
example.com smtp:mail.anotherdomain.tld Delivers all emails for example.com via smtp to the server mail.anotherdomain.com.
example.com smtp:mail.anotherdomain.tld:2025 Delivers all emails for example.com via smtp to the server mail.anotherdomain.com, but on port 2025, not 25 which is the default port for smtp.
example.com

smtp:[1.2.3.4]
smtp:[1.2.3.4]:2025
smtp:[mail.anotherdomain.tld]

The square brackets prevent Postfix from doing lookups of the MX DNS record for the address in square brackets. Makes sense for IP addresses.
.example.com smtp:mail.anotherdomain.tld Mail for any subdomain of example.com is delivered to mail.anotherdomain.tld.
* smtp:mail.anotherdomain.tld All emails are delivered to mail.anotherdomain.tld.
joe@example.com smtp:mail.anotherdomain.tld Emails for joe@example.com are delivered to mail.anotherdomain.tld.

See

man transport

for more details.

Please keep in mind that the order of entries in the transport table is important! The entries will be followed from the top to the bottom.

Important: Postfix uses a caching mechanism for the transports, therefore it might take a while until you changes in the transport table take effect. If you want them to take effect immediately, run

postfix reload

after you have made your changes in the transport table.

 

14 Send A Welcome Email For Creating Maildir

When you create a new email account and try to fetch emails from it (with POP3/IMAP) you will probably get error messages saying that the Maildir doesn't exist. The Maildir is created automatically when the first email arrives for the new account. Therefore it's a good idea to send a welcome email to a new account.

First, we install the mailx package:

apt-get install mailx

To send a welcome email to sales@example.com, we do this:

mailx sales@example.com

You will be prompted for the subject. Type in the subject (e.g. Welcome), then press ENTER, and in the next line type your message. When the message is finished, press ENTER again so that you are in a new line, then press CTRL+D; if you don't want to cc the mail, press ENTER again:

root@server1:/usr/local/sbin# mailx sales@example.com
Subject: Welcome
<-- ENTER
Welcome! Have fun with your new mail account. <-- ENTER
<-- CTRL+D
Cc: <-- ENTER
root@server1:/usr/local/sbin#

help my please

From: at: 2009-01-20 13:04:20

What a great guide!

I found a small typo in the configuration of postfix.

The line:

postconf -e 'virtual_mailbox_extended = yes'

should be:

postconf -e 'virtual_maildir_extended = yes'

If not, quota does not work

Best regards,

Hans Audun

From: Gergely Kiss at: 2009-01-11 21:55:52

This howto is great, works as expected, however I've found a small issue with it: quota warnings don't get sent until the setting "virtual_maildir_extended = yes" is added  to the main postfix config file (/etc/postfix/main.cf). This instructs postfix to create or update the maildirsize file for each maildir, which is required to check the actual size of a maildir.

Guys,

for the quota set.I am not able to download the quota.txt from http://puuhis.net/vhcs/quota.txt.

It would be great If you can tell me where I can download the same

 Hello

 I got the same problem I dont know that much from this system and are very fresh to it

I also got this error  `pure-ftpd-mysql' uses 32-bit capabilities (legacy support in use)

means (mysql is stoping) if its in your case the same then you have to fix this problem first

I am still doing resource on it to solve it , if I did fix it I will let you know

Regards FJB

From: de5truct0r at: 2009-03-27 17:31:25

Hi, my problem was the same, courier couldn't find mail directory (in my case it is /home/vmail). Problem is in /etc/courier/authmysqlrc  line: MYSQL_MAILDIR_FIELD CONCAT(SUBSTRING_INDEX(email,'@',-1),'/',SUBSTRING_INDEX(email,'@',1),'/')

I just changed highlighted part to '/home/vmail' and now at least I can login using squirrel mail.

 I still don't know why courier can't login server.example.com/vmail. I would appreciate if someone who understands this issue could explain it.

From: Anonymous at: 2009-02-11 10:07:39

I had a similar issue when the change password plugin was loaded. Login and all I got was a blank page. Unloaded the plugin and it worked ok.

 It ended up being a stray bit of code in the sqlpass change config.php

Make sure you don't have any stray bits of code. I had "                        );" just under the $password_update_queries section.

From: dleonce at: 2009-01-08 08:43:07

I am having the same problem.  During the setup, I inadvertently selected YES to the question "Create directories for web-based administration?" in STEP 2.To install Postfix, Courier, Saslauthd, MySQL, and phpMyAdmin. Can someone tell me the implications of this? Could this be the reason for this error and can someone assist with the configuration changes?

From: LQman at: 2009-01-11 11:48:50

This is my opinion about connection dropped by imap.

 Imap try to open user directory (maildir), while the directory (maildir) doesn't exist or didn't created before.

So we have to send "welcome message" to every new user, than courier will make maildir automatically, after that our new user will be able to login.

From: justin at: 2009-03-05 16:18:45

where does it create the maildir directory ?  can i just run the makemaildir command to create it manually ?

From: Lochinvar at: 2008-12-30 04:52:01

I had the same issue. I solved it by sending an email to the account in question.

What is going on is that the directory to contain the email has yet to be created and the server throws the error.

 Try using mailx to send a sample email to the account.

From: keddie at: 2008-12-25 23:52:35

Try this:

 run squirrelmail-configure command, then go to server settings (2), next go to update IMAP settings (A), change IMAP Port(5) to 993 and Secure IMAP (TLS)(7) to true.

Hope that will help :)

From: at: 2008-12-26 13:46:44

I did it. Nothing has changed.

Hello i have solved the problem. in the place of mail_user a put in the mysql user vmail that i maked with phpmyadmin and gif the richts to db mail after that it works

From: TomT at: 2009-01-18 19:44:03

Solved my own problem...  Whilst edditing one of the files I pasted an extra : at the end of the line.
That's what stopped the sending of emails :(

SquirrelMail was giving me a blank page, becuase I'd missed entering my MySQL password in one of the files for the password_changer plugin.

All my own fault :)

So how do I tell if ClamAV is upto date ?? And that SpamAssasin is working properly ?
I don't see any ref to Clamav in the email headers. Is that normal ?

Is it possible to set up more DNSBL or RBL entries in either Postfix or SpamAssasin ?
Is it possible to drop connections from any hosts that don't haev a FQN ? with exceptions based on host names ??
 

Thanks :)

I have a problem where it is not letting me log as well. I look at /var/log/mail.log and this is what I see. I have tried looking through all the config files and I cannot find why it is sending UNKNOWN_USER instead of mail_admin
and advise would be great. Thank you all in advance.

maczkal@wp.pl is my email.

When i want to login with Squirrelmail i have ERROR: Connection dropped by IMAP server.

This is in mail.log

Mar  2 15:27:07 ubuntu imapd: Connection, ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1]
Mar  2 15:27:07 ubuntu imapd: chdir example.com/sales/: No such file or directory
 

Any hints?

From: Anonymous at: 2009-01-18 16:20:33

I've followed this guide and installed everything as shown.

When I go to my browser and view http://192.168.1.172/squirrelmail I get the log in screen.

I log in and nothing. No pages showing waiting mail. I have telnetted in and using STAT I can see mail waiting.  Any ideas what's wrong with SquirrelMail ??

Also when I try to send I get asked for a password, I've entered the same pasword that I used for IMAP/POP3 but it won't let me send.

Any Ideas ?

Thanks
