Re: view content of allowed messages

examine the url carefully. Is it available externally? Is it blocked by your home firewall?

Re: receiver-domain based retention period

no, not without making code changes to mailscanner or handling the cleanup manually/self scripted.

i don’t believe that it would be too hard to script.

Re: Release Block Attachments with Sendmail

Is there anything in the efa interface, or in the log files when you try to resubmit the messages? A problem I've had is when a message gets false flagged as a virus and blocked. In this case, I had to update my virus signature whitelist, restart clamd, and then resubmit the message to the mail queu...

Re: EFA4 - Can Centos 8 be used

Probably not, as the EFA build depends on the packages in Centos 7.

The next version will support Centos 8

You can see the discussion about this here: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=1038&p=14763&hilit=Centos+8#p14763

Re: Recommended partitioning of a vm for EFA 4

Good question! I just did a default install the other day and it basically made 2 50GB partitions managed by lvm I'm not actually happy about that, so I'm thinking of reinstalling. My own preference is to just set it as a single 100GB partition mounted under / without using LVM. Why? Well, it's a VM...

I'll give this one a try.

Re: block MS office documents with macros

If you search in the forums, you'll find that this has been discussed.

The short answer is, "kinda". Due to the complexities in the MS Word file format, it is very difficult to consistently do so.

Re: Avoid local messages to be virus scanned

Useful.

I keep getting a lot of false positives for gmail.com and imgur.com with the Malware Patrol Block List, so I am trying to decide whether to get rid of MBL, or avoid virus scanning for certain people.

Re: want to release bad content quarantined mail per mailwatch

No, not exactly that. In the old wiki, there was a FAQ with links to the answers.

Considering the # of times that the geoip question has come up, it might be useful to have again.

Re: Change URL from domain/mailscanner

It is possible, but I believe that there are quite a number of places where the /mailscanner/ path is hardcoded. Changing the path is easy, but some things might break until you find every instance of every place where /mailscanner/ is referenced. I vaguely recall a discussion on this somewhere in t...

I have found that after running the mail server for a few years, few messages from big providers gets grey listed. However, Shawn's fix is also effective. Leaving greylisting on results in a lot less spam, and any reduction of spam has been worth the effort. That's just my experience. I understand t...

Re: Report of all recipient addresses?

Apparently, I'm having a reading comprehension problem...

Change the last command to:

Code: Select all

# sed -e 's/,/\n/g' /tmp/to.txt | sort | uniq -c | sort -r > /tmp/top-recipients.txt
Thus, you'll get both the top recipients and the number of times they've received a message.
