Hi, I just install eFa for the first time.

I'm wondering is there's a way to view the messages that are being rejected?

Sure, take a look at /var/log/maillog :D
Version 3.0.2.5 released! Update now to keep your eFa secure!

Rejected by postfix? or rejected by EFA?

If the message is rejected by postfix, when you will only have a record in /var/log/maillog. These rejections are almost certainly spam. 99.99999% at least.

If a message is rejected by EFA because of virus/spam, then depending on your efa settings, you may have a copy of the message in the quarantine. You'll be able to view these message through the EFA web interface.

for postfix rejected messages you can activate what kind of trouble you want report to the postmaster. Configuration on webmin > Postfix Mail Server > General Options > What trouble to report to the postmaster

There is an used variable in the EFA-Init that was meant to be used for postfix alerts. Up until 3.0.2.6, it was unused.

3.0.2.6 will have the ability to set postfix alert emails via the new menus
