Re: How to install EFA4 Beta RC2 on Hyper-V 2016

Just a reminder to my future self as I'm going to forget this and Google it again. If you forget to add the script at install and end up with a clean and functional Centos machine. You can download the cfg and manually install the packages and execute the post install commands as they're defined ins...

[re-fixed] Outgoing mail stuck in queue

Mail is stuck in queue, postfix -f doesn't do anything. However, if I reboot the first 30 queued emails are sent then the rest gets stuck again. I have diverted outgoing mail to a different route so the queue is not growing. But with 2000 emails stuck I'd need to reboot another 67 times to get them ...

Can't view headers

The little "i" button next the processed messages doesn't show any headers, only the date/time and source IP address.
System messages do give me full header information though.

Overzealous double extension filter

Hi All, I often see emails being blocked that trigger the double extension filter that a human viewer can instantly recognize as a false positive. For example: 'itinerary j.doe.pdf' will get filtered. Since both '.doe' and '.pdf' are safe extensions this shouldn't happen. I have manually added a few...

Skip greylisting on matching SPF record

I'd like to speed up mail delivery from sources that have properly configured SPF records. This would greatly reduce waiting and administration time, especial with mail from Office 365 as Microsoft seems to have a zillion mail servers and their auto balance algorithm conflicts with greylisting in ge...

Re: mysql overloading system cpu/IO

Since about a week I'm seeing the same thing, MySQL I/O and CPU are really high. My setup is running on VMWare ESXi as well, with 8GB of RAM. ESXi reports that slightly more than 2GB is actively used. One thing I have noticed that it's not constant but with a certain interval. I see 40 minutes of hi...

Greylist management improvements

I'd like to propose two changes in greylist management: 1 - List 'waiting' by date (newest first) by default 2 - Allow for single click domain/subnet whitelisting Point 2 needs some elaboration. I quite often have problems with domains that do auto-load-balancing; the sending server will be a differ...

Re: RBL check question

A developer with too much time on their hands could add an option to specify an incoming relay server, thus making the system aware of the need to process the second to last hop instead of the last.
Other than that you're SOL.

Re: RBL check question

Your only option is to cut out the relay server and make EFA the first server that receives email.
This is kind of how mail filtering appliances work in general.

Re: Mailsploit

I reckon it shouldn't be too hard to mitigate this:

1 - Check if the From header contains more than one @
2 - Check if the domains match if there is
3 - Up the spam score if they don't

The logic would be pretty easy, programming the scripts and adding GUI elements is most of the work I gather.

Re: Best way to backup and restore?

If you're using VMWare, why aren't you using Veeam?
Or the free edition of you can't afford it.

[fixed]Double extension filtering exception

Hello all. We're having a bit of a problem with the filtering rule for double extensions (eg. .pdf.exe). The rule is a bit too strict. Let me elaborate on this. Our company name is 'Company.net'. Quite often we get attachments -usually PDF- which are auto-generated as companyname.pdf, thus resulting...

STARTTLS Let's Encrypt bug (and manual fix).

STARTTLS fails with "4.7.0 TLS not available due to local problem" after running the Let's Encrypt installation. The Let's Encrypt generator script works fine for the webinterface but makes a small error in the Postfix config if the system name contains any capital letters. The generated directory d...
