Re: efa 4. cannot login to cli

and what account were you using to log into the console? During the installation, you would have created an account that you can use to log into the shell to manage EFA. Do you remember what it was? If you are unsure, log into the webadmin interface and look under System/Users and Groups. Look for t...

Re: how do I find out what exact version of EFA I am running?

Unfortunately that file doesn't tell me the EFA revision number.

I only see "eFa-4.0.4" and not the revision (-5, -7 or whatever it is)

Re: No score for MAILSPIKE

For anyone wanting to change their SA scores for MailSpike, you can run the "SpamAssassin Rule Hits" report to find out how the rules have been performing for you so far before setting ne...

Re: greylist shows error

What do the log files say?

Your problem is here:
"Error in the query: "

Unfortunately, without the actual query and error message, it's hard to tell.

Is there any interesting error messages in /var/log/mariadb/mariadb.log?

Re: How to increase mass mailing over EFA 3.x

I have a client that sends 10-15K emails, several times per week via Exchange Server. 1/ they send them bcc'ed 300 messages at a time. The "To:" address is to their own address, not directly to the recipient. I believe EFA then breaks this down into groups of 100 at a time on our installation. 2/ ye...

Re: adding efa to iredmail

EFA is a standalone mail gateway. It's purpose is to filter all incoming and outgoing mail in order to reduce the amount of spam sent/received. In your case, you'd continue to use iRedMail and configure it to use a dedicated EFA instance as your smarthost. You'd then configure your mail delivery to ...

my opinion: Unfortunately, it's too hard to block .doc files as we still get so many of them. If we could have a guaranteed way to detect macros in word documents, that would be best, but for various reasons (thanks Microsoft!), that's impossible. I rely on the spam/antivirus/malware scanners to pro...

You might want to consider adding the postfix-sasl jail as well, if you get a lot of failed sasl authentication attempts.
