Re: Salesforce CRM emails being rejected

This looks like a problem with postfix not being able to handle the = inside the <email address>. I do not see any options to allow you to override the reject_unknown_sender_domain postfix option inside postfix. The only alternative would be to turn off this function, but that would result in lots m...

Re: Where to get SpamAssasin score information

Normally, I just search the spamassassin on my installation in the /var/lib/spamassassin/3*/ directory for the ruleset names. That will lead to the definition.

In this case, I do not have these rules in my installations.

Re: MailWatch periodically stops logs to DB

Without more information, it's very hard to debug this.

Is there anything in the mysql log files? how about the System log files? Is the database still running? what does "mysqladmin processlist" show?

Re: Hello

Consider using the Centos 8 instead of Centos 7 as your host os. That means you'll have more time before you need to upgrade the OS again.

I believe efa running on Centos 8 is working now.

Good luck with your migration. Sounds like you know what you are doing.

Re: Problem with efa as an open relay

without having access to your box at the time it was compromised, it's very hard to guess.

Keep your local user accounts to a minimum.

Use strong passwords

Re: Problem with efa as an open relay

I'm just looking over the mail headers, and from what I can see, somebody from 23.129.64.18 was able to use your server (SMTP.Cryptz.com / 24.229.7.147) and authenticate as user cryptz. So, did your machine have a user called "cryptz" on your system? Was the password compromised? That'd be my guess....

Re: Shared database, to allow multiple EFA appliances sharing one truth for SQLGrey etc

If I were to guess...

when you change the db_host from localhost to an ipaddress or hostname, the mysql database wouldn't allow access from a non local request.

To fix that, you'll have to give access to the sqlgrey database from that user/host combination.

Re: Shared database, to allow multiple EFA appliances sharing one truth for SQLGrey etc

When you say "broke" can you be a bit more specific?

Can you tell us all the steps you did between when it "worked" and when it "broke"?

If we know what you did, then we may be able to figure out where it went wrong.

It sounds like a false positive. Somehow, the PDF you've generated is matching another spam signature under the Sanesecurity's spam signatures. Either that, or your pdf is actually the spam people have reported to Sanesecurity. If it's the former, then I suggest you regenerate your PDF, or resave it...
