Re: Can I (should I) suppress DMARC report transmission?

Can I (should I) suppress DMARC report transmission?

I am running a nice little mail server for my home using EFA. I went so far as to implement SPF and DMARC and all has been working nicely. Because I am a home user, I must use a commercial system to do outbound email relay. This service is cheap enough, but I selected the 150 outbound messages a day...

Re: Convert from CentOS 8 to Rocky

The problem with my first server was that several RPMs do have the identical names in eFa- and EPEL-repos, and so the migration script failed. I worked around this problem by excluding several packages from the EPEL-repos. I ran into the same problem and while the exclusions did the trip to get pas...

How best to upgrade eFa to new server OS version

My current eFa installation is running v4.0.4-26 on CentOS 7.9. My plan is to replace this server instance with a new one running Rocky Linux v8.5. In principle, I would build the new server instance with Rocky Linux v8.5, install the eFa software on it, then migrate across all the settings and data...

Rocky Linux 8

With Rocky Linux (https://rockylinux.org/) arriving as the heir to the CentOS mantle (downstream community edition), will eFa be supporting this distribution?

Migrating to eFa from a traditional MailScanner installation

I have a functioning MailScanner installation running as an email gateway in much the same manner eFa is assuming (at least that's what it looks like to me). I have a few questions at the outset for how I can recreate the capabilities i have deployed today: 1) I have to use an external service to se...
