Re: mailbox size limits

Hi

You can adjust Maildir size manually in

/home/vpopmail/domain/Your.domain.Com/user/Maildir/maildirsize

add size at the top of this file i,e, 20000000S for 20MB

Regards

Kevin

Re: Qmailrocks + LDAP HowTo

Hi

I assume you want LDAP for Address Book ?  Yes you can set this up.  Is it
for use through SQ or pop accounts.

Qmailrocks + LDAP HowTo - semi-related question

I use qmail as an smtp gateway for a large Exchange installation. Qmail
receives the internet mail, sends it on to exchange via smtproutes. 

My question is this - is it possible to use qmail-ldap to look up users in a
remote LDAP directory, and then reject messages if the email is not found in
the LDAP?

Thanks
David

Re: Qmailrocks + LDAP HowTo - semi-related question

Hi

I assume you're not using virtual users and all users have access to the
server for other services  !!!  If you're running virtual domains and
virtual users LDAP is not the right option as you would be need to run
double entry for each user and alias.

Postfix you would add an entry in the main.cf file

relay_recipient_maps = ldap:/path/to/file

I'm not sure where within qmail you could put that command but If someone
could point us in the right direction then we could probably do it... I'm
certainly interested in having a go.

Any Ideas !!!!!

Regards

Kevin

Re: log file for vpop

There should be a lastlog in the users Maildir and that should tell
you the IP but not sure about date and time.

Re: Qmailrocks + LDAP HowTo - semi-related question

We had qmail-ldap working here for a single domain for a while. It 
was ok and we managed to get it stream lined. User management 
is some what limited. If your new to ldap
you'll have fun with the getting the database secure and learning 
the ldap commands to add and remove users.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/phpldapadmin/
was a big help.

After applying the qmail-ldap patch to qmail-1.03 I couldn't get 
some of the other patches/options I wanted for qmail to install. Not 
saying it can't be done but didn't have the time to mess around with 
it.

For those who are interested more info can be found at

Controlling size of the queue

I've been running my mail server for just a few days, and already the 
mail queue is filling up with garbage that will eventually fail 
(delivery failure messages to bogus spammer addresses, etc).

Is there a 'conventional' way to deal with this, either by limiting the 
number of deliveries attempted, or perhaps not even sending failure 
messages to mail that is rejected by Spamassassin or ClamAV?

I know my server can handle the load, but something just rubs me the 
wrong way about having all this stuff chewing up bandwidth, HD space and 
CPU time.

Re: Controlling size of the queue

Curt,

I had that same problem in the beginning ... lots of messages in the queue 
because the bounces were destined to fake addresses.

I decided to do a few things:

(1)
I set up a .qmail-default, whereby any mail addressed to a non-existent user 
on my system (typical of a dictionary attack) does not get bounced. Instead 
it goes to a special mailbox designed for that purpose (shitcan@...).

(2)
I run BIND and have my own blacklist and whitelist. I do blacklist lookups 
after the whitelist. Any lookup that succeeds on the blacklist prevents the 
email from being delivered.

(3)
For the shitcan@... mailbox, I execute a program and pipe the
incoming 
message to it. I find the incoming IP address and I then execute a program 
that passes the IP to rndc to dynamically update the blacklist. From that 
point on, my system will accept no more email from that IP address.

It is  rather severe approach, but it works for me :-)

Re: Controlling size of the queue

I like steps 1-2, but trashing an entire domain's mail because of one 
spammer on the domain wouldn't work for my clients.

I like the idea of routing the spam to a mailbox so I don't send failure 
messages, though. Then maybe just a cron job every night that sends the 
shitcan mailbox >/dev/null

Re: mail routing problem

I found a dirty way around this problem. It was prompted by AOL rejecting 
email from my dynamic IP:

(1)
My qmail server accepts relaying only from users on my local network

(2)
I put aol.com in my rcpthosts file so that my server will accept email 
destined to that domain

(3)
In my smtproutes file, I entered:

aol.com:comcast.net

Now all outbound email is sent directly by my qmail server *except* email 
addressed to aol.com: that email is piped over to be relayed by my ISP 
(comcast.net) and AOL accepts it from them.
