Re: Increasing Outbound number

There you go. The problem is that their mail server is not responding. That could be for many reasons, but the main reason is not EFA in this case. - Paul PS: if the mail remains in the queue for a long period, the sender should eventually be notified that the message cannot be delivered, or is dela...

I also need to figure out how to turn off the "{Spam Not Delivered}" email notifications. I assume these settings are in the mail watch web interface which I can no longer get admin access to.

Re: efa -> ispconfig - missing x-spam-status

What is ispconfig and what product is it from?

Do you mean http://www.ispconfig.org/page/home.html? If so, you'd be better off asking the question in their public forums (https://www.howtoforge.com/community/#ispconfig-3.23)

Re: Increasing Outbound number

If you're comfortable using the command line, you can use the "mailq" command after logging into the EFA management account and accessing the Shell.

That will give you the same information.

Re: Increasing Outbound number

You need to find out why the mail is queued up. What I do is check the mailq using Webmin https://<your efa hostname>:10000/ and login using the root account. Select "Servers, Postfix Mail Server" from the left hand side. Select "Mail Queue" on the right hand side. The "Status" column will tell you ...

Re: trusted domain / network emails are being marked as spam

Maybe, I haven't checked that.

However the DKIM rules means that if someone sends mail to mydomain.com that is not an authorized mail server for the domain means it is likely to get junked, so I'm not too worried about it.

It certainly hasn't been a problem so far.

Because you have to add it into your local.cf file yourself.

score FREEMAIL_FORGED_REPLYTO 4.0
You can score it more or less according to your preference.

Re: trusted domain / network emails are being marked as spam

Sure, but you'll have to provide more information. First question: Where are the messages being marked as spam? By your EFA appliance, or by the remote mail systems? If it's the former, the problem should be simple to fix. If it's the latter, you'll need a full spam report from the receiving systems...

webadmin module for mailscanner

https://sourceforge.net/projects/msfron ... p_redirect

Is this of any use? It seems to provide a "gui" for editing the MailScanner.conf file and to control the MailScanner process. It seems to work, but the code hasn't been touched in quite a few years.
