Enabling Auto Release Feature in 3.0.1.4

EFA 3.0.1.4 includes a few cool new features, thanks to contributions from the community!

One that has me really excited is the auto release table in MailWatch.

To enable, look for this line and set to true:

/var/www/html/mailscanner/conf.php

Code: Select all

//Quarantine Auto Release
//Set true to allow auto release of quarantined items from quarantine report
define('AUTO_RELEASE', true);
That's it! Your spam reports, if enabled for your users, will have a release link next to each item!

:clap: :dance: :clap:

This feature officially replaces the deprecated release email footer on spam not delivered notifications. The footer method will be removed in future releases.

Sounds great but I need some clarification. When you say:
This feature officially replaces the deprecated release email footer on spam not delivered notifications. The footer method will be removed in future releases.
I see the issue that with the old footer release method, you immediately got notified of the not delivered email while the SPAM reports are being sent out what, daily or weekly, I'm not sure? Also can that SPAM report frequency be adjusted? I'd be happy with daily, say every morning but I haven't really used this feature yet.

Yes, it is daily by default.

Update to 3.0.1.4 asap to fix quarantine_reports.php, just a heads up.

Hi,

I didn't want to start a new thread on this because it seems related. Until now I always used the footer option to release mail from quarantine. This was easy and comfortable for my clients.

With the upcoming removal of this feature I looked into the daily spam report thingy. First I noticed that I never received a daily report althogh the script is called correctly via cron. An added debug output to show me the database query revealed to me that the user has to have set the receive daily report flag in the database. What led me to my next issue: which users?! I quickly discovered that mailwatch features other users besides my admin login. However, to have every mail-account receive the daily report, each recipient must be created as a user. This is where my research ended, as I found no self-register feature for users.

I always liked that EFA is slim and simple from an Admin point of view. What is the official suggested way to have every mail recipient be able to self-release the spam in the future?

thanks,

Fabian

Hi to all,

This is the reason I m also trying to use EFA, migrating from a MailScanner+MailWatch barebone setup.

But, even further, Is that really needed to create the users?

I'm using this as a MX in for a Zimbra server, so, I dont really want to create 50+ users again .
is there a way of sending a Digest for the recipients on the queue ??

Thanks in advance.

JG

This may explain my confusion on trying to get EFA to function the way I need it to.... adding a user for every email address is logistically not going to happen especially when you consider forwarders, etc. Is it not possible to have a daily digest sent to every email address without adding all of those email addresses as a user on EFA?

Hi,

with the recent releases of 3.0.1.6 and up (also there was a feature freeze announcement for 3.0.1.6) I wanted to check if the footer option is still available. And is there any ETA on the scheduled remove? Version 4.x?`

thanks,

Fabian

Hi,

Thanks for the quick reply! Are there any plans to change the way how users/digests/quarantine releases work in 4.x?

In my case (and probably a lot of other installations work the same way), EFA is an antispam-gateway for several Mailservers (MS-Exchange, Postfix...) and Domains. For this reason there is no easy, let automated, way to transfer registerred e-Mail-Adresses/Users to EFA.

regards,
Fabian

I am contemplating the ability to support the postfix feature of recipient address verification.

http://www.postfix.org/ADDRESS_VERIFICATION_README.html

Combine that with a process that detects successful deliveries and grabs recipient addresses, it may be possible to automatically populate the MailWatch user database with valid recipients and enable the quarantine report for them, similar to what some commercial filters do.

Is this already added? Because i'm getting all these records in my mailscanner to mail addresses that don't even exist on the domains. Just random names are being used.
