Re: How to integrate E.F.A with Active Directory on 3.0.0.5

...I used ASSP in the past but setup was always very difficult and getting everything to work properly together was a very tedious job... I was looking at both EFA and ASSP at the same time. Your observation about ASSP is both correct and completely understated. I did manage to get it working after...

Keep in mind that it doesn't show where SQLGrey goes which I believe is part of the MTA process at the very start.

Re: How to view logs for a particular SpamAssassin Rule

And that's much easier.

You only need to look at the spam assassin rules if you want to find out exactly what that condition is, assuming you can parse the regexes that is. :lol:

Re: Quarantine oddity

Nevermind, it is a function of Mailscanner controlled by /etc/MailScanner.conf, specifically

1/ Non Spam Actions =
2/ Spam Actions =
3/ High Spam Actions =

It is clear that EFA-Configure only modifies the first two MailScanner configuration options.

[howto] Installing and using opendkim with EFA 3.0.0.7

Hi All,

[edit: see below]

I'm looking to implement DKIM and I was wondering if anyone has already done so successfully with EFA.

I'm trying to avoid doing something that will break my efa installation in horrible ways during future updates.

Any advice appreciated.

Re: How to view logs for a particular SpamAssassin Rule

You'll need to examine the Spamassassin rule sets, find the rule and then work out yourself why it was triggered (in 3.0.0.7, built from scratch) cd /var/lib/spamassassin/3.004000/updates.spamassassin_org [root@efa updates_spamassassin_org]# grep SPOOF_COM2OTH * 20_uri_tests.cf:uri SPOOF_COM2OTH m{^...

Re: Mysql optimisation.

Also recommended:

Code: Select all

[mysqld]
innodb_file_per_table=1
This creates a separate file for each innodb table, which allows you to optimize and shink them separately.

Is there a way to avoid the greylist for certain incoming ip address network ranges, e.g. "192.168.1.0/24" Some of our mail comes from a could email service provider with well defined service ip addresses, and everything they send us is "clean", thus we never want to slow them down.
