Comment this :

Quote:

smtpd_client_restrictions = permit_sasl_authenticated, reject


and uncomment this:

Quote:

#smtpd_recipient_restrictions = permit_sasl_authenticated, permit_auth_destination, permit_mynetworks, check_relay_domains, reject_unauth_destination

Forgive me for probably presenting an already discussed issue but 16 pages is way too much. :?

I've followed the instructions exactly.Everything seems to run smoothly(no errors at start up).But I cannot get mail :(

I'm behind a router(Actualy DSL modem:Alcatel Speedtouch Home->Pro).
I want actually to make my system a mailserver so as to be able to sent and receive mail from my machine.

-My local IP is set to 10.0.0.1
-default gateway(the router's ip) is 10.0.0.138
-My connections IP is updated via Dyndns
-Dyndns domain: something.dyndns.org
-My hostname: something(same as dyndns).
I have also added in /etc/hosts
[Code]
127.0.0.1 localhost
10.0.0.1 something something.10.0.0.138 something.dyndns.org
[*Code]
-In /etc/postfix/main.cf I have uncommented the line

myhostname = something.dyndns.org

-I've redirected port:25 of the router to my port:25
-I have set up kmail according to the instructions.
-I send a mail to username@something.dyndns.org and it cannot be delivered.

What am I doing wrong?

Another question:What about internal mailing?Supposing the above is solved, is the system able to send messages to root?

I Thank you in advance :)

Does your router have a logging function? Check that first to make sure that mail is actually getting delivered to port 25 on the router. If it is, then start looking at the postfix logs.

Also, what's this line in your hosts file for:

10.0.0.1 something something.10.0.0.138 something.dyndns.org

Is that really what it looks like (and I'm not talking about the 'something')?

Let me be more clear: are you defining 'something.dyndns.org' in your hosts file and pointing it towards your internal network?

first thx for this great howto, i ran today through it and everything works. i've got only one small problem: when acting as normaluser@server how do I get permissions to crontab -e to activate the mentioned crontab entry for fetchmail?
EDIT: solved (crontab -u user -e)

but now I've got another problem:

Code:
Kerberos postfix/smtpd[23652]: sql_select option missing
Kerberos postfix/smtpd[23652]: auxpropfunc error no mechanism available
Kerberos postfix/smtpd[23652]: _sasl_plugin_load failed on sasl_auxprop_plug_init for plugin: sql
Kerberos postfix/smtpd[23658]: sql_select option missing
Kerberos postfix/smtpd[23658]: auxpropfunc error no mechanism available
Kerberos postfix/smtpd[23658]: _sasl_plugin_load failed on sasl_auxprop_plug_init for plugin: sql


I've installed mysql for my LAMP, and I searched for some solution to this error but didn't found anything helping me. hope u guys can help me.

Try this to fix the "sql_select option missing" problem
Code:

USE="-mysql" emerge cyrus-sasl


It should get rid of the warning but I'd like a better fix
Its also mentioned hear


You should be able to edit a users crontab without specifying the -u option is you are logged in as the user. I slipped up on this one because I hadn't added my user to the cron group.

Hi everyone. First of all I'm a total Getoo noob so it may be something obvious. I'm trying to install this but I'm getting some errors when I try to emerge procmail. Here's what I get after it unpacks:
Code:

Doh, looked around some more and found the solution:

Code:

FEATURES=-sandbox emerge procmail


So the next question is, what exactly is sandbox and why does it need to be disabled?

"For clients, both KMail and Thunderbird don't work. I haven't tried others. KMail doesn't generate any errors other than something like "failed to send some messages" in the status bar. Thunderbird gives 'Could not establish an connection because certificate presented is invalid or corrupted. Error Code: -8182' when trying to send. "

Mozilla 1.7b (Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.7b) Gecko/20040413) gives that -8182 error - so does the Released Mozilla 1.6 for Windows.

If I turn off TLS, everything works great. But I'd like to be able to use TLS. :-)
How to solve this? Hm..

SOLVED: I paid very close attention to the errors that whizzed by. :) Also, I removed the CA, and the *.pem certs and re-created it...very...carefully. Adding defaults for all of the sections seems to have made it a bit easier to deal with, too. Bottom line is that it works. :)

beowulf, I noticed this a long time ago but I forgot to post it. In section 10 for spamassassin, you mention this for spam training:

Code:
*/30 * * * *    sa-learn --dir --spam /home/user/.maildir/.spam > /dev/null 2>&1
*/30 * * * *    sa-learn --dir --ham  /home/user/.maildir/ > /dev/null 2>&1


I believe that it should actually be:

Code:
*/30 * * * *    sa-learn --dir --spam /home/user/.maildir/.spam/cur > /dev/null 2>&1
*/30 * * * *    sa-learn --dir --ham  /home/user/.maildir/cur > /dev/null 2>&1


otherwise sa-learn can't find the messages. This of course assumes that they are marked read, otherwise you could substitute "cur" for "new".

thanks for the helpful guide

a few comments, i haven't read much of the thread so sorry if they have been mentioned already:

typo in section 5.1, you mention to edit "/etc/courier-imap/authdaemondrc" i dont think that D should be there.

secondly, i had to change MAXPERIP in /etc/courier-imap/imapd to stop mozilla thunderbird saying "server has disconnected, there may be a network problem" now and then (quite irritating). I changed it from 4 to 10 and the problem has gone.

finally, to avoid messages like this in syslog:
Code:
Failed to create cache file: maildirwatch
Error: Input/output error
Check for proper operation and configuration
of the File Access Monitor daemon (famd).

i had to rc-update famd default and then start it. i haven't looked into what FAM actually does yet.

I think this came with a newer build of courier-imapd.

I'm guessing the newest ebuilds decided to start building fam in with Courier-Imap?

running

Code:
[sp@yafa - ~ ]sudo netstat -lp | grep :smtp


gets me:

Code:
tcp        0      0 *:smtp     *:*      LISTEN      1403/master


From what I've gleaned in the forums it might be because I have a bad master.cf

Would somebody be able to post a working one based on beowolfs HOWTO?

Thanks in advance

I have half the functionality. I can connect to IMAP folders, using SSL, but I can't sent. When I use Mutt on zeus (my mail server) I can send an email to anywhere, but when I use Outlook on a laptop on my network, I can't send an email. I get this from outlook.

Code:

The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'cyberward.net', Server: 'zeus.cyberward.net', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 465, Secure(SSL): Yes, Socket Error: 10061, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E


Then this is what my email server says.

Code:

Apr 25 21:30:51 zeus imapd-ssl: Connection, ip=[10.0.0.103]
Apr 25 21:30:51 zeus imapd-ssl: LOGIN, user=veggie2u, ip=[10.0.0.103], protocol=IMAP
Apr 25 21:30:51 zeus imapd-ssl: LOGOUT, user=veggie2u, ip=[10.0.0.103], headers=0, body=0
Apr 25 21:30:51 zeus imapd-ssl: Connection, ip=[10.0.0.103]
Apr 25 21:30:51 zeus imapd-ssl: LOGIN, user=veggie2u, ip=[10.0.0.103], protocol=IMAP
Apr 25 21:30:51 zeus imapd-ssl: Unexpected SSL connection shutdown.
Apr 25 21:30:51 zeus imapd-ssl: DISCONNECTED, user=veggie2u, ip=[10.0.0.103], headers=0, body=0


What am I not doing that is doing this?

beowulf: wanted to thank you again for this guide, i didnt get my issues resolved previosuly but i followed setup again from scratch with the redirect you put up. heres whats going on.

as i understand it i am using ssl to login to my mail server on the lan. my isp blocks ports so i have a but of a work around. contrary to the last time, receiving is working great, it was the fix that you posted that got me up and running the whole \ thing. (its really late and im rambling) anyway ok so i use ssl to connect to the server here with imap and it has popped down all teh mail and all looks good.

if i am sending out. my email client auths using ssl to my server here, and then my email server does what? connect with ssl outbound?

im using outlook. if i set up the email account to send using ssl with the server i just set up as teh outbound, the sending times out. if i take away ssl i get this in an email in my inbox

Code:
Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.

      Subject:   test
      Sent:   4/30/2004 1:46 AM

The following recipient(s) could not be reached:

      'bruor@cogeco.ca' on 4/30/2004 1:46 AM
            554 <unknown[192.168.0.6]>: Client host rejected: Access denied


192.168.0.6 is the IP of the machine i am using outlook on. i have tried using relayhost = xxxxx but that doesnt seem to do anything for me at all, i have also tried killing teh smtpd_sasl* lines in main.cf as well as setting the domainname and hostname for it statically, although i dont think those have anything to do with it.

if you need my config files please post a quick grep line that i can use to strip out commented code adn ill reply a lot faster than i would without it ;) thanks once again for your help

I have now reinstalled my server, and did everything that was said up there.

There is one problem though. The how to does not say how to make your email server recieve email, without being an open relay.

I had to remove the following line:
Code:
smtpd_client_restrictions = permit_sasl_authenticated, permit_mynetworks, reject


And replace it with this line:

Code:
smtpd_recipient_restrictions = permit_sasl_authenticated, permit_mynetworks, reject_unauth_destin
ation


beowulf: I think you should add that to the how to. This has been mensioned before in this thread, except its 15+ pages big :D

I skimmed over the ~400 posts, but forgive me if this has been answered before, but:

My .fetchmailrc:
Code:

et postmaster "localName"
poll mail.myschool.edu with proto IMAP user "user_name" there with password "user_pass" is localName here options warnings 3600
poll pop.my_dept.edu with proto POP3 auth password user "user_name" there with password "user_pass" is localName here options warnings 3600
poll pop.forum.account with proto POP3 auth password user "user_name" there with password "user_pass" is localName here options warnings 3600
poll mail.isp.account with proto POP3 auth password user "user_name" there with password "user_pass" is localName here options warnings 3600


I run the fetchmail script provided in howto:

Code:

fetchmail: couldn't find canonical DNS name of mail.school.edu (mail.school.edu)
fetchmail: Query status=11 (DNS)
fetchmail: couldn't find canonical DNS name of pop.eecs.school.edu (pop.eecs.school.edu)
fetchmail: Query status=11 (DNS)
fetchmail: couldn't find canonical DNS name of pop.forum.com (pop.forum.com)
fetchmail: Query status=11 (DNS)
fetchmail: couldn't find canonical DNS name of mail.bellsouth.net (mail.bellsouth.net)
fetchmail: Query status=11 (DNS)



What am I missing, please?

looks to me like you are having problems with dns resolution.

can you ping these addresses etc...
can you use your fav linux mail client with these addresses standalone?

if it doesnt work for you try using the ip addresses of these locations rather than hosts names and see if it works for you that way, if it does then you will know its a DNS issue that you need to TS

I tracked it down, ran an strace and found that some of my perms for /etc/ were off.

Thanks though. :)

Ok, now I'm to the part with setting up Kmail. When I click on "detect what the server supports" in sending or receving set-up, it errors out:

Unknown error code 0


I've checked to ensure that all the daemons are running, I can download using fetchmail, and have confirmed that my firewall is letting port 25 through from clients. I'm not sure how to troubleshoot from here.

On a side, how do I make an OR rule in .procmailrc? I tried this (as suggested in Timo's HOWTO):

Code:
# Personal/Friends
:0
* ^From:.*addyone
  ^From:.*addytwo
  ^From:.*addythree
  ^From:.*addyfour
  ^From:.*addyfive
  ^From:.*addysix
  ^From:.*addyseven
  ^From:.*addyeight
  ^From:.*addynine
.Personal/


But this just writes tons of emails to a file named "addytwo".

I've pretty much given up and am installing spamassissin client side. I'm just going to set it as a filter in evolution. But I'd still like to know how to do this since I'd like to set up my own email server over the summer.

im not sure on the or rule for procmail...

just curious did you set up your smtp server to send mail directly? or did you set it up to use your ISP's smtp server for outgoing mail ?

id like to get sending for this whole shebang workign but it isnt looking good..
i can deal with only having incomine email if i can set squirrelmail up to use my ISP's smtp server instead of a local one... at least that way all aspects of this will still *seem to work

Set up to redirect to ISP's smtp server. I figured I should take it in baby steps. :)
