Relay Information missing from message details

Post by forhire »

After updating eFa I am no longer seeing the Relay Information in the message details.

I have confirmed it went missing right when the update was done. Transport is working properly, it's just not capturing the delivery on the details page. Did it possibly get disabled? Any ideas?

I have rebooted the server and glanced through the config and logs but nothing jumps out.

I think I found the issue. Not sure why postfix_relay isn't starting. I did managed to get it restart once last night but it promptly died. milter_relay is running. Rebooting the server made no change. Any ideas?

Code: Select all

[user@smtp ~]$ sudo systemctl status postfix_relay
● postfix_relay.service - Postfix relay service for MailWatch
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/bin/mailwatch/tools/Postfix_relay; enabled; vendor preset: disabled)

It looks like either I have a missing/broken column in the database or an issue with the field list. Still digging.

Code: Select all

[user@smtp ~]$ sudo /usr/bin/php -q /usr/bin/mailwatch/tools/Postfix_relay/mailwatch_postfix_relay.php

Fatal error: Uncaught mysqli_sql_exception: Unknown column 'to_address' in 'field list' in /var/www/html/mailscanner/functions.php:1054

I ran upgrade.php and postfix_relay is now running.

sudo /usr/bin/php -e /usr/bin/mailwatch/tools/upgrade.php

I'm still not seeing the Relay Information. Now I'm at a real loss. Any ideas?

Re: Relay Information missing from message details

The database table mtalog_id is NOT updating. I selected a message from the logs. Grabbed the smtpd_id and the smtp_id and manually inserted them into the mtalog_id table. The Relay Information now appears in the message details for that message. Watching the count on mta_log_id table confirms it is NOT updating. The mtalog table is populating properly. Now I just need to figure out what code/daemon should be updating the table.

I pulled a random message-id from the logs:
Apr 16 21:13:51 smtp postfix/cleanup[20077]: 4KgxWz0KjMzB48GB: message-id=<c1dd2922-be04@foo.com>
Apr 16 21:13:56 smtp postfix/cleanup[20077]: 4KgxX45MBhzB48GB: message-id=<c1dd2922-be04@foo.com>

I then inserted the smtpd_id and smtp_id into the mtalog_id table:
MariaDB [mailscanner]> INSERT INTO mtalog_ids (smtpd_id,smtp_id) VALUES ("4KgxWz0KjMzB48GB", "4KgxX45MBhzB48GB");
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.04 sec)

The milter_relay daemon is responsible for inserting into the table mtalog_ids. So if you aren't getting this information, this is where we need to focus.

Restarting the milter_relay daemon causes it to rescan the maillog before following it live. So if it doesn't capture anything after restarting, we definitely have something to look at here.

I hate my own code sometimes... :oops:

Please download this copy and test and/or debug (DEBUG_MILTER can be set to true and restarted to get detailed logging to the maillog)...

Code: Select all

curl -sSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/shawniverson/MailWatch/041722milter_relay/tools/Postfix_relay/mailwatch_milter_relay.php | sudo tee /usr/bin/mailwatch/tools/Postfix_relay/mailwatch_milter_relay.php
sudo systemctl daemon-reload
sudo systemctl restart milter_relay
