Re: Receive email after x number or retry to deliver

I see. Normally that completely under the control of the MTA (mail transfer agent) that handles the delivery and redelivery of mail that is queued. Do you know why the mail is not being delivered? Usually when there is a delivery problem, the mail system will give you some reason, which you can find...

Re: General Question with Whitelist

look in your /etc/MailScanner/spamassassin.conf - what is the setting for your "use_auto_whitelist" parameter?

Also, what is the setting of /etc/MailScanner/MailScanner.conf "SpamAssassin Auto Whitelist" parameter?

Re: Login to mailwatch using imap authentication is unsuccessful

Error 500 means internal server error. That usually means there is some error that prevents the server from generating the properly. You usually see this when you add a coding error to the php page. Could there be another reason, like missing php module? I don't know for sure, but I guess it is poss...

Re: Disable Double Extension

On my system, if I comment out the rule, attachments pass correctly.

Can you share your specific message you're getting? Maybe we can debug what's happening to you.

All these files on my Centos 7 based system are owned by root.

Re: Email flow diagram - whitelisting before blacklisting (help)

yes, that is the postfix RBL check rejecting the message before it arrives in the system.

So, if you want to receive those messages, turn off the RBL checks in postfix.

I don't, because they seem to be pretty good at identifying spam before it enters my system.

Hi Omer, My apologies for the questions, but I'm having a hard time picturing this in my head. So, is your mail flow like this?

Re: eFa Filter sudden restarts

That's very strange.

I've been running eFa on ESXi 6.5 for years without a single unplanned reboot.

Are there any logs in ESXi you can check? Or are there anything inside the vm itself that might clue you in?

This is not an EFA problem, but highly likely a problem with your vm.

Re: eFa Filter sudden restarts

It is really unusual for a centos box to restart unexpectedly. Is the server having hardware problems? Is the system short of memory? Are there any errors before a restart in /var/log/messages? I think you have to identify and resolve this problem first. The programs that make up eFa are incapable o...

Re: Cannot find configuration value: incoming queue dir in

Weird. I have no idea. I have a stock centos 7.0 installation with the latest v4.x version of eFa. My MTA is set to "msmail", so I have no idea what is different between your system and mine and what is causing the difference.

Clearly something is wrong.

That parameter does not exist in the mailscanner.conf

what did you change in your system between the time the error showed up in your web interface and before when it did not?

Re: Send Messagecopy of quarantined Mail with blocked Attachments

Interesting, I never knew about this feature before as I have never used it. >Is that the problem, that this is a filetype check and no filename check? But in the mailscanner.conf is no parameter for Filetype Subject Text. Good question, as I have no idea. I'll need to test it to see what happens.

Re: How to release block emails.

If you can still view the message in the MailScanner web interface, then the original message is still in the system and you should be able to release it.
