[00:00:45] <lampe2> so i changed it and i can recive no emails but not send
[00:02:23] <rob0> well, myhostname needs to be the PTR name for the IP address, which is why I said that
[00:03:07] <rob0> Furthermore, this apparently being Zarafa, you might consider getting Zarafa support for it.

[00:35:20] <r3zon8> since my isp blocks port 25 in/out, cheapest way to get my mail deliverd on non-standard port?
[00:35:46] <r3zon8> i found dnsmadeeasy/no-ip/dyndns..but theyre pretty pricey..any ideas?
[00:38:24] <thumbs> r3zon8: use a vps, or google mail services.
[00:38:29] <lunaphyte> go rent your own vps
[00:38:55] <r3zon8> will look into it, thanks :)
[00:39:01] <thumbs> r3zon8: the latter is simpler, so you can forget about making your server work, and focusing on productive things.
[00:39:24] <thumbs> r3zon8: running a mail server is not trivial, and will consume all your free time.

[01:22:42] <kreign> thumbs, in contrast, you really only need to set up your MTA properly ONCE, and it's easily replicated from site/site or to amend domains after that. after that.
[01:23:00] *** master_of_master has joined #postfix
[01:23:47] <thumbs> kreign: I doubt the first task can be done in a timely fashion without proper experience
[01:23:50] <kreign> and some might say it's a tradeable skill. (I've not found that to be the case yet, but we'll see.)
[01:24:00] <kreign> thumbs, define 'timely fashion'? :)
[01:24:07] <Tabmow> kreign: as spammers evolve so does the thinking of a mail admin
[01:24:38] *** lampe2 has quit IRC
[01:24:38] <kreign> Tabmow, true. how much has 'standard' postfix/etc. blocking changed much in the past couple years?
[01:24:58] <kreign> I ask because good idea/bad idea stuff seems mostly the same as what I recall hearing years ago.
[01:25:06] <kreign> note: I f*cking hate mail, and I'm not a good mail admin.
[01:25:11] <kreign> but, it still consumes most of my time.
[01:25:12] <kreign> :P
[01:27:43] <kreign> Tabmow, eg. servers which were set up 4, 5 years ago have run more or less unmolested except for updates.
[01:27:47] <kreign> w/o spam
[01:29:35] <Tabmow> kreign: heh... for how many users?
[01:30:04] <thumbs> a whole 10 users :)
[01:30:04] <kreign> 300 in that case.
[01:31:08] <kreign> used the same basic approach to classifying new spam as google or any MUA does these days
[01:31:24] <kreign> but also started with a (massive) spam preseed
[01:31:39] <jimpop> spamassassin ?
[01:31:52] <kreign> yeah.
[01:31:56] <kreign> er, no
[01:31:58] <kreign> policyd + mysql
[01:31:59] <jimpop> sa-update?
[01:32:02] <jimpop> oh
[01:32:07] <jimpop> so no spamassassin
[01:32:12] <kreign> i don't believe so, no.
[01:32:16] <jimpop> guess you get what you deserve
[01:32:29] <kreign> jimpop, what do you mean?
[01:32:50] <jimpop> i've been running an unmolested MTA for 12 years...at very little time per year
[01:33:05] <jimpop> near zero spam problems
[01:33:38] <jimpop> just regular system updates and sa-update
[01:33:46] <jimpop> freshclam too
[01:33:54] <jimpop> that and some rbls
[01:34:11] <kreign> jimpop, how many users/domains? :P
[01:34:11] <jimpop> piece of cake? no. peace of mind? yes.
[01:34:42] <jimpop> 4 domains, mailinglists totalling about 5,000 uers at one point.
[01:35:01] <jimpop> public, 'cept for 1, archives
[01:35:03] <kreign> "cloud email" just does not make sense from a continuity perspective.
[01:35:07] <jimpop> so lots of scraping
[01:35:34] <kreign> I've got a domain i'm trying to 'fix' right now
[01:35:41] <kreign> huge mess of master and main.cf
[01:36:09] <kreign> many, many $random_low_number:multiple,users,here BS
[01:36:15] <jimpop> time to read he docs
[01:36:18] <jimpop> !docs
[01:36:18] <kreign> a bit of an undertaking, yeah.
[01:36:34] <kreign> jimpop, biggest problem is dealing with the obscenely slow storage. the system is being absolutely hammered.
[01:36:59] <kreign> jimpop, a lot of it is more than reading docs, though
[01:37:14] <kreign> "this looks like a good idea to implement" vs. "i know i should implement this" or "I know i shouldn't implement this"
[01:37:33] <kreign> and then other things you should/need to implement for legacy support considerations
[01:37:50] <kreign> this mail server has been operational/migrated up from sendmail circa 1991, so there's a LOT of cruft...
[01:38:08] <kreign> jimpop, spent some time reading that this AM, before coffee. I intend to read it some more this evening, during whiskey. ;)
[01:38:23] <jimpop> perhaps start here: rm -rf .... ;-)

[08:41:41] <zeshoem> cristian: Debian or CentOS based system?
[08:42:02] <cristian> Hi, CentOS.
[08:42:36] <Zerberus> !tutorial
[08:42:36] <knoba> Zerberus: "tutorial" : A very common problem is that some people prefer to follow a step-by-step tutorial that shows them how to setup their server w/out reading the documentation or understanding what they are doing. If something goes wrong, they have no clue whatsoever about where to find hints, and they sometimes decide to start from scratch using a different tutorial. This is not The Proper Way.
[08:44:50] <zeshoem> I tried to watch a cbt series on RHEL5, that goes over Postfix and Dovecot. and for the most part they just installed the default package out of yum and it worked out of the box. Minor modifications thats all

[14:24:28] <lunaphyte_> that would be a question for the authors of that software.
[14:24:52] <lunaphyte_> the reason you get a certificate warning is likely that you've used a self signed certificate.
[14:25:09] <patdk-wk> do you really have sasl working correctly?

[15:40:47] <lunaphyte_> LucidGuy: is the split amicable?
[15:42:17] <r3zon8> LucidGuy, i run a split domain with zimbra as primary, exchange as secondary

[15:47:56] *** hjbehling has joined #postfix
[16:01:36] *** alterbass has quit IRC
[16:03:27] <lunaphyte_> well, it depends on the relationship and which [if either] group is [or is willing to be] subordinate.
[16:05:47] *** snearch has quit IRC
[16:10:11] <LucidGuy> lunaphyte, not sure what amicable is ?
[16:10:19] <lunaphyte_> on good terms
[16:10:36] <lunaphyte_> without spite, animosity, etc.
[16:11:05] <LucidGuy> I'm thinking two groupware servers Exchange from groupA and Zimbra for GroupB .. both groups have the exact same email domain.
[16:11:47] <LucidGuy> Would it be wise to have a central Postifix setup to relay between to the two servers by email address?
[16:12:02] <lunaphyte_> wise?
[16:12:08] <rob0> possibly!
[16:12:10] <lunaphyte_> who knows. that;s subject to a lot of particulars
[16:12:22] <lunaphyte_> but - i will say that it's probably what i would do, all things considered.
[16:12:25] <LucidGuy> is that even possible .. or will it be an administration nightmare
[16:14:16] <rob0> !address_classes
[16:14:25] <rob0> ^^ see the relay domain class
[16:14:53] <rob0> Whether or not it is a nightmare, we cannot guess.
[16:15:23] <LucidGuy> How would you go about this scenario?
[16:16:02] <UQlev> LucidGuy: each group having their own server?
[16:16:07] <lunaphyte_> hmm, i thought i just said, with the disclaimers that haven't been expanded upon form above
[16:16:34] <LucidGuy> Yes, these groups were once a single entity, now going their own ways in regards to technology but want to retain their email domain/addresses
[16:16:46] <lunaphyte_> yes. we get all that
[16:17:03] <lunaphyte_> lunaphyte_: LucidGuy: is the split amicable?
[16:17:12] <lunaphyte_> lunaphyte_: well, it depends on the relationship and which [if either] group is [or is willing to be] subordinate.
[16:17:13] <rob0> Either have each side fully aware of all addresses, or use subdomains and virtual aliases.
[16:17:39] <LucidGuy> lunaphyte, yes, they are on business terms..
[16:17:50] <rob0> In the subdomain case, have one central MX dealing out the mail to each site.
[16:18:06] <lunaphyte_> i like the subdomain idea.
[16:18:18] <lunaphyte_> that could even be kept "internal" only
[16:18:30] <LucidGuy> But then their email address will have the subdomain within it?
[16:19:39] <UQlev> LucidGuy: you may have virtual domain/alias
[16:20:35] <LucidGuy> Theses two servers will have no connectivity of each other .. completely seperate , so we have to assume they are unaware of each other.
[16:20:43] <LucidGuy> Well .. besides the internet.
[16:21:20] <lunaphyte_> so there will be a single mx host for this domain - who will manage it? group a or group b?
[16:22:30] <rob0> There may be a tough choice or two. There is no other way than what I described. If each side thinks it owns the whole of example.com, their users will not be able to mail the ones on the other side.
[16:22:52] <LucidGuy> lunaphyte, thats what I'm trying to figure out .. thats why I'm thinking of having a third postfix server doing the delegation/relaying .. holding the mx record.
[16:23:28] *** sphenxes has quit IRC
[16:23:36] <lunaphyte_> that is not an option. that is a must. the real question is what rob0 has been saying.
[16:23:44] <lunaphyte_> how will each group email the other?
[16:23:58] <lunaphyte_> have new domain names been obtained?
[16:24:16] <LucidGuy> still only a single domain name.
[16:24:22] <lunaphyte_> that is retarded
[16:24:28] <lunaphyte_> the focus should be on transitioning.
[16:24:38] <LucidGuy> If we must, we can have one of the two groups hold the main mx record.
[16:24:55] <rob0> good luck.
[16:25:05] <lunaphyte_> this exercise should be only done while the transition is occurring.
[16:25:26] <lunaphyte_> ultimately, a domain can have only a single owner. who is keeping the domain name? group a or b?
[16:26:02] <LucidGuy> I hate the fact that they disagree on a new groupware product.... We were happily on Scalix meeting both groups needs. But with the Scalix dropping off the face of the earth a migration is required.
[16:26:51] <LucidGuy> lunaphyte, for arguments sake, lets say group a . .the MS Exchange server. Group B will be using Zimbra.
[16:27:14] <lunaphyte_> that's really irrelevant. it's the divergence itself which creates this.
[16:27:28] <lunaphyte_> then inherently, group b is subordinate to group a
[16:27:43] <lunaphyte_> group a owns the domain, group a runs the internet mx.
[16:27:56] <lunaphyte_> group b hopes that group a doesn't become a jerk.
[16:28:12] <lunaphyte_> get new domain names.
[16:28:15] <lunaphyte_> focus on that.
[16:28:29] <lunaphyte_> use relocated maps.
[16:28:44] <LucidGuy> lunaphyte, I told them to use another domain (which they own) .. but they don't want the hassle of chaning their email addresses.
[16:28:56] <lunaphyte_> take on an aggressive campaign to get the new email addresses out.
[16:29:03] <lunaphyte_> that is ridiculous.
[16:29:18] <LucidGuy> lunaphyte, Exactly .. urgg. Damn users fearing change.
[16:29:40] <lunaphyte_> assure them it will be not painful
[16:30:01] <LucidGuy> I say they adopt the new email address .. and groupA temporarily forwards their previous addresses to the new doamin.
[16:30:08] <lunaphyte_> correct.
[16:30:22] <lunaphyte_> the old addresses can work for as long as they need to.
[16:30:46] <lunaphyte_> group b deserve what they get if they do not make an effort to become independent.
[16:31:25] <lunaphyte_> what if group a's mail admin is an idiot, and breaks the server. group b now doesn't get their mail, and can't do anything about it.
[16:33:30] <lunaphyte_> it does not sound like group b has really given the big picture and reality proper consideration.
[16:34:03] <LucidGuy> lunaphyte, thats why I wish there was a parent gateway server hold the domain and MX .. and somehow simply relays between the two based on email address.
[16:34:13] <LucidGuy> ..holding
[16:34:16] <lunaphyte_> it can, that's fine.
[16:34:22] <lunaphyte_> nothing wrong with that at all.
[16:34:52] <LucidGuy> umm .. they why are we having this conversation .. that was my first comment.
[16:35:16] <LucidGuy> Can this parent solution be accomplished with Postfix alone?
[16:35:28] <lunaphyte_> again - that server will be owned, managed, by a SINGLE group. as will the domain.
[16:35:49] <UQlev> LucidGuy: there was a question about mailing between A and B, or they will pretend they do not know each other?
[16:35:57] <LucidGuy> lunaphyte, Yes .. I'm the entity managing both of their services.
[16:35:58] <lunaphyte_> it is now, as you seem to think, some magically agnostic third party.
[16:36:06] <lunaphyte_> and which group do you work for?
[16:36:10] <rob0> LucidGuy, I answered that a long time ago.
[16:36:38] <LucidGuy> UQlev, yes the two backend servers (not parent MX holding server) are not on the same network and will not know of each other.
[16:36:56] <LucidGuy> lunaphyte, I work for both.
[16:37:02] <lunaphyte_> LucidGuy: they will have to, or email between them will not work.
[16:37:27] <lunaphyte_> for some reason, i can't seem to make my point.
[16:37:40] <lunaphyte_> only one group can own the domain and mail server.
[16:38:12] <lunaphyte_> if you do the mail admin work on that mail server, then whoever owns the domain and mail server are who you work for in this context.
[16:39:07] <LucidGuy> lunaphyte, Yes... I'll own the domain and front end postfix server holding the mx entry. My server will relay inbound emails based by email address to either groupa (Exchange Server) or groupB(Zimbra) .. this is what Im proposing.
[16:41:17] <LucidGuy> Make sense? Comments?
[16:45:25] <lunaphyte_> you, and individual, will own this group's domain name?
[16:45:28] <lunaphyte_> *an individual
[16:45:37] <UQlev> LucidGuy: what about certificates? ssl-services? hostnames?
[16:45:46] <LucidGuy> Yes.. they both pay my salary.
[16:46:15] <lunaphyte_> that is not wise.
[16:46:29] <lunaphyte_> the domain name should be owned by the rightful owner.
[16:47:12] <LucidGuy> lunaphyte, I agree with you .. I'm just trying to think of alternatives to shut these two groups up. Nobody wants to release ownership of the domain.
[16:47:24] <LucidGuy> They should never have joined together in the first place.
[16:47:41] <lunaphyte_> it's funny. i went through this same thing at my last job.
[16:48:01] <LucidGuy> Want really drives me crazy is the stupid group that thinks Exchange is the only way to go.
[16:48:27] <lunaphyte_> just myopic, that's all. i wouldn't get too worked up about it.
[16:48:30] <jduggan> exchange is the only way to go, duh
[16:48:54] <LucidGuy> I did a cost comparison and the Exchange alternative would cost 4 times more then Zimbra. And Zimbra actually has more options like CalDAV etc.
[16:48:57] <lunaphyte_> LucidGuy: the reality here is that there needs to be some frank discussion first about the future.
[16:49:29] <lunaphyte_> the two groups need to come to a genuine agreement about what will happen with the domain name, etc.
[16:49:40] <UQlev> LucidGuy: for workgroup MTA is not that important as groupware itself
[16:49:50] <LucidGuy> lunaphyte, legally GroupA owns the name.
[16:49:57] <lunaphyte_> there seems to be a severe deficiency of leadership here.
[16:50:08] *** xabbuh has joined #postfix
[16:50:30] <lunaphyte_> ah, good, finally.
[16:50:37] <LucidGuy> lunaphyte, yes and no. These groups are just very different from each other. 5 years ago they were a team.
[16:50:39] <UQlev> LucidGuy: groupware is particular soft, people are very reluctant to learn it
[16:51:24] <LucidGuy> lunaphyte, they don't even talk to each other anymore .. and I'm stuck in the middle .. urg
[16:51:32] <lunaphyte_> LucidGuy: so the only question is how accommodating is group a interested in being?
[16:51:44] <lunaphyte_> LucidGuy: so this sounds like it's not terribly amicable.
[16:52:04] <LucidGuy> lunaphyte, they have no interest in pissing off GroupB .. but they will never drop the name.
[16:52:19] <lunaphyte_> who will never drop the name?
[16:52:29] <LucidGuy> lunaphyte, They are in good terms with each other... but groupB is not to happy they want Exchange.
[16:52:39] <LucidGuy> lunaphyte, groupA .. they own it.
[16:53:11] <lunaphyte_> group b shouldn't care. it means nothing to them.
[16:53:22] <lunaphyte_> in fact, it's a good thing, then.
[16:53:23] <UQlev> LucidGuy: have you got any experience with implementation of groupware in real office?
[16:53:44] <lunaphyte_> if they were still one group, group b might get stuck with exchange. now, since they are split, group b avoids exchange.
[16:54:07] <LucidGuy> UQlev, yes. I'm the admin for my existing Scalix box .. admined Exchange for years. Minimal experience with Zimbra.
[16:54:52] <LucidGuy> GroupB is a research Linux savvy group .. Exchange causes them to vomit, not to mention it doesnt even meet all their needs.
[16:55:12] <UQlev> LucidGuy: from my experience people do not go beyond web-mail, they do not want to learn to use anything unusual
[16:55:40] <LucidGuy> My linux group needs caldav and imap .. a minimum.
[16:56:07] <LucidGuy> GroubA wants their lovely Outlook.
[16:57:04] *** [diablo] has quit IRC
[16:57:45] <LucidGuy> Looks like a Postfix inbound relay server is going to be the only solution.
[16:58:02] <lunaphyte_> not the only, but likely wise
[16:58:16] <lunaphyte_> exchange nor zimbra should be exposed to the internet
[16:58:39] <LucidGuy> I'm going to try very hard to convince GroupB to switch to their other domain name.
[16:59:18] <LucidGuy> lunaphyte, I have a Zimbra demo server exposed. It's basicily postfix doing all the smtp
[16:59:28] <lunaphyte_> i know.

[17:36:42] <ninjai> UQlev, apparently there's /var/log/mail.log. I went to VI it and my server froze for a solid 10 seconds. Then I saw the log briefly, then it booted me out
[17:37:19] <rob0> a pager like less(1) is generally better for log viewing.

[17:59:41] <ninjai> when the email sends out it gets sent out with the proper domain name
[18:00:26] <UQlev> jorisw: you should use LDA other than postfix to use .forward

[18:00:51] <UQlev> ninjai: what is IP address of your server?
[18:01:07] <UQlev> jorisw: yes, e.g. dovecot
[18:01:21] <jorisw> instead of postfix or in addition to postfix?
[18:01:27] <ninjai> 18.104.22.168
[18:01:29] <rob0> not true
[18:01:42] <UQlev> jorisw: in addition to postfix
[18:02:08] <rob0> local(8) is invoked as the recipient, so any .forward commands are run by that user.

[18:10:07] <ninjai> is this in my main.cf?
[18:10:09] <ninjai> *set in
[18:10:27] <UQlev> ninjai: with such a banner every server will reject your messages
[18:10:40] <ninjai> lol except yahoo hotmail and gmail apparently...
[18:11:33] <UQlev> ninjai: you should adjust your banner and reverse DNS lookup for your host
[18:12:07] <jorisw> Sorry I obfuscated actual domain names.
[18:12:35] <jorisw> Any way, this setup works on my older ubuntu machine. Email -> .forward -> php /srv/www/mysite.com/index.php
[18:13:06] <rob0> !tell jorisw example
[18:13:06] <knoba> jorisw: "example" : Example.TLD has been reserved for examples in generic top-level domains (com,net,org) and many other TLDs. Please do not use real Internet names as examples.
[18:13:16] <jorisw> alright
[18:13:21] <rob0> Does the command output there not make sense?
[18:13:22] <ninjai> UQlev, is the "myhostname" called a "banner"? I'm trying to find out how to change it.
[18:14:03] <jorisw> rob0: No it doesn't. The user with the .forward file has access to that file.
[18:14:40] <UQlev> ninjai: no, banner usually uses myhostname as parameter
[18:14:52] <ninjai> okay, how do I change it?
[18:15:20] <jorisw> (the user is member of the developers group)
[18:15:25] <rob0> getent passwd <username>
[18:15:28] <rob0> aha!
[18:15:32] <UQlev> ninjai: in your main.cf write myhostname = atari.mydomain.tld
[18:15:38] <rob0> jorisw, no, only primary group is used.
[18:15:47] <jorisw> hmm.
[18:15:50] <ninjai> what's the tld?
[18:15:54] <ninjai> oh
[18:15:56] <ninjai> top level domain
[18:15:57] <ninjai> :P
[18:16:11] <jorisw> rob0: But if I su to the user, and cat the index.php, it reads
[18:16:22] <rob0> right. su != Postfix
[18:16:23] <UQlev> ninjai: that is just example
[18:16:25] <ninjai> I can't find my main.cf, UQlev. I typed a whereis and I'm directed to only man pages
[18:16:29] <jorisw> rob0: interesting
[18:16:49] <ninjai> nvm, it's in /etc/postfix
[18:17:24] <jorisw> rob0: alas. I made the user owner of the index.php and the error is the same
[18:17:59] <jorisw> of the entire web tree even
[18:18:30] <UQlev> ninjai: I have never run servers on ubuntu and have no ideas where do they put configs
[18:18:38] <rob0> so check every directory leading to it
[18:18:50] <thumbs> jorisw: is apache httpd involved in this?
[18:19:04] <rob0> need at least +x and +r in the one containing the file
[18:19:05] <ninjai> it's ok UQlev I found it. My old server, which worked, has myhostname = atari. Should I set it to that instead of atari.mydomain.tld?
[18:19:06] <jorisw> thumbs: Nope, the php script is executed from the commandline php
[18:19:13] <thumbs> jorisw: ok.
[18:19:53] <UQlev> ninjai: do you have normal hostname other than 22.214.171.124.static.metrobridge.net ?
[18:20:08] <ninjai> yes
[18:20:29] <ninjai> but our domain our email is under is the same as our website which is not hosted here
[18:20:29] <UQlev> ninjai: is that hostname resolved to that IP?
[18:20:34] <jorisw> the user can read every directory up to the index.php
[18:20:34] *** pdtpatrick has quit IRC
[18:20:36] <ninjai> no its not
[18:20:47] <thumbs> jorisw: show the namei -m output
[18:20:57] <jorisw> no output
[18:21:15] <thumbs> jorisw: namei -m /full/path/to/file/from/filesystem/root
[18:21:52] <jorisw> as root or in name of the user?
[18:21:58] <UQlev> ninjai: if you domain part or hostnamed can't be resolved you might be very soon blacklisted
[18:22:25] <thumbs> jorisw: root is fine.
[18:22:48] <UQlev> ninjai: domain you are sending from should be existing
[18:23:17] <thumbs> jorisw: www is wrong :)
[18:23:28] <ninjai> UQlev, the domain exists, its just pointed to a web server at a different address than I'm sending from. Is this a big problem?
[18:23:29] <thumbs> jorisw: you need at least 711.
[18:23:30] <UQlev> ninjai: and reverse dns lookup of 126.96.36.199 should give your hostname
[18:23:46] <rob0> jorisw, the error is the same, still can't open input file?
[18:24:00] <thumbs> rob0: see the pastebin.
[18:24:03] <rob0> maybe the answer is in "man php"
[18:24:13] <jorisw> rob0: Yes, but thumbs fixed it
[18:24:15] <jorisw> Thanks thumbs
[18:24:23] <thumbs> jorisw: you're welcome.
[18:24:27] * jorisw goes to educate himself further on permissions parent directories
[18:24:31] <jorisw> of*
[18:24:46] <thumbs> rob0: see, I help folks here too!
[18:24:49] <rob0> Ah. Note I told you to check parent directories also.
[18:24:51] <UQlev> ninjai: if your webserver has different IP then hostname is also different it is irrelevant to your mailserver
[18:25:20] <rob0> I assumed that had been done already.

[18:36:31] <ninjai> UQlev, since changing my myhostname in mail.cf I get immediate bounces trying to send email within my own domain, but not to other addresses
[18:36:48] * ninjai thinks he should have never replaced his original server with a new one
[18:36:50] *** xabbuh has quit IRC
[18:37:39] <ninjai> ah, works after changing it back to atari. I think that makes sense.

[18:39:05] <UQlev> ninjai: if you do not want to learn then give up bothering other people
[18:39:27] <rob0> !basic
[18:39:50] <ninjai> UQlev, that is my rule. Until my old server wouldn't boot 3 times in a row from disk errors which were a huge headache to fix because of disk encryption and I needed to distro upgrade it to get a new version of ghostscript because of a new job we had coming in. Long story :P haha.
[18:42:11] <UQlev> ninjai: another approach is "keep on training" force changes even if they are not necessary
[18:42:26] <ninjai> yeah
[18:42:55] <ninjai> this is very confusing. I mean, the links you sent make sense but I just can't figure out how the hell this worked on the old server. I didn't even touch it's configs... I just installed postfix and it worked.
[18:43:50] <UQlev> ninjai: MTA is not normal application which works out-of-the-box
[18:44:09] <UQlev> ninjai: MTA need setting it up

[18:46:31] <ninjai> UQlev, thats the thing, like I said earlier I'm 99% positive I just checked off the mail server setting in ubuntu server and it installed. Then one day I thought of the bright idea of automating daily emails we needed to send to our clients adn it all just "worked". It was like windows, it was so odd

[20:39:19] <ninjai> guys I'm having a problem with return-path. My old server apparently had a file called /etc/mailname which had my domain name in it. The return path on those emails was set to my domain name because of this. On my new server even though I've created the file with the right domain name in it, it doesn't change it to that.
[20:39:49] <ninjai> I realize I should/could edit it in /etc/postfix/main.cf, but then I can't send emails to my users in my domain

[21:18:50] <feisar> Hi, my mail server has spf records and signs with dkim and it's not on any black lists and yet I think some mail is not being delivered
[21:18:59] <feisar> I hae just found entries like this:
[21:20:08] <feisar> Feb 7 11:16:24 mail postfix/smtp: 3D9883E97: to=<Ethan.user at example dot com>, relay=mail.server.server.com[xx.xx.xx.xx]:25, delay=1.8, delays=0.86/0/0.39/0.54, dsn=2.6.0, status=sent (250 2.6.0 <4F30F9F6.60905 at domain dot co.uk> [InternalId=50531458] Queued mail for delivery)
[21:20:21] <feisar> which I haven't come across before, what does that mean?
[21:21:15] <rob0> what in particular is bothering you about that?
[21:22:08] *** Phil has joined #postfix
[21:22:09] <feisar> i don't think that happens every mail gets sent
[21:22:35] *** lysander has quit IRC
[21:22:43] * rob0 still does not know what the problem is
[21:22:45] <feisar> and it's happening for an address that I have been told is not getting delivered
[21:23:04] *** lysander has joined #postfix
[21:23:08] <Phil> I'm having issues with smtp and saslauthd - the log says "SASL LOGIN authentication failed: authentication failure"
[21:23:09] <lunaphyte> what do you mean?
[21:23:21] <lunaphyte> "Queued mail for delivery"
[21:23:30] <feisar> basically, a user told me that he is having trouble sending mail to a few addresses
[21:23:30] <lunaphyte> your part is done.
[21:23:33] <Phil> it's authing via mysql, which is logging. This has shown that the query isn't actually run
[21:23:42] <rob0> status=sent (250 2.6.0 ...
[21:23:50] <Phil> so my guess is that postfix isn't talking to saslauthd correctly
[21:24:13] <lunaphyte> if you think something may be happening to the message after you've successfully given it to mail.server.server.com, then contact the owner of mail.server.server.com
[21:24:14] <rob0> Phil, first question: why did you choose Cyrus SASL?
[21:24:29] <lunaphyte> also don't use other people
[21:24:30] <lunaphyte> bah
[21:24:40] <Phil> rob0, I've used it for years and don't know any better
[21:24:49] <lunaphyte> also, don't use other people's domain names in your examples. it's inconsiderate.
[21:24:53] <lunaphyte> feisar: ^
[21:25:03] <rob0> Phil, are you using an imapd? Which one?
[21:25:10] <Phil> rob0, yes - courier
[21:25:14] <feisar> sorry, I just obfuscated it quickly
[21:25:17] <Phil> which is working fine for mysql auth
[21:25:38] <Phil> postfix is also doing its inbound mail lookups fine from mysql
[21:25:46] <Phil> it just seems to be smtp auth which is fubar
[21:26:08] <rob0> Cyrus SASL can easily use Courier authdaemond. That might be your best bet.
[21:26:10] <feisar> what seems strange is that it appears the remote server is just dropping mail from my server without any error
[21:26:20] <lunaphyte> if you think something may be happening to the message after you've successfully given it to mail.server.server.com, then contact the owner of mail.server.server.com
[21:26:27] *** xabbuh has joined #postfix
[21:26:30] <Phil> rob0, I'll try it
[21:27:33] <Phil> rob0, this is configured in /etc/postfix/sasl/smtpd.conf, I assume?
[21:28:02] <rob0> that sounds debianist
[21:28:06] <Phil> yah
[21:28:10] <feisar> yeah I will, I just wanted to make sure I wasn't doing anything wrong, it's Universal Music so their likely to ignore me
[21:28:22] <rob0> read your distributor's Cyrus SASL documentation
[21:28:40] <rob0> Debian for some idiotic reason uses a nonstandard path.
[21:29:25] <rob0> Google with enough keywords might help too. Or might not.
[21:32:17] *** jorisw has left #postfix
[21:32:53] *** kyconquers has joined #postfix
[21:34:19] <Phil> I've configured the authdaemond_path to be /var/run/courier/authdaemon/socket, which exists
[21:34:28] <Phil> might this have to do with postfix running in a chroot?
[21:34:40] <Phil> as Debian seems to do
[21:36:24] <Phil> aha
[21:36:41] <Phil> removed Postfix from its chroot and sorted the permissions on that socket and it's away
[21:36:46] <Phil> thanks :)
[21:38:46] <rob0> :)
[21:39:43] <thumbs> stupid debian.
[21:39:44] <rob0> Always seemed easier and more sensible to let SASL use authdaemon rather than run saslauthd.
[21:41:02] *** danblack has joined #postfix
[21:41:52] <feisar> is there a general consensus in here for the 'best' distro to run postfix on?
[21:42:29] <feisar> I am going to have to set up a mail server soon and I'm not sure whether to go with Ubuntu or CentOS
[21:43:05] <rob0> "Best" is what you are familiar with, generally.
[21:43:49] <feisar> I am running CentOS at the moment but had been thinking about using ubuntu for this next project
[21:44:18] <rob0> Of course when you choose something like CentOS, you must be aware that you have chosen to stay several major releases behind current offerings.
[21:44:39] <rob0> (or, you can rpmbuild something recent)
[21:45:19] <feisar> yeah I have come to realise that, although I haven't ever found it a problem with postfix

[21:57:16] <LiquidFusi0n> Hi guys, is there anyway one of you could spare me 5 minutes of your time?
[22:00:00] <danblack> !tell LiquidFusi0n ask
[22:00:18] <LiquidFusi0n> I'll take a look
[22:00:39] <LiquidFusi0n> Oh, that's like the how to ask a good question page :)
[22:00:46] <LiquidFusi0n> Well hopefully it will be precise enough
[22:01:52] <LiquidFusi0n> I am trying to use postfix and SASL to connect to smtp.gmail.com. I then want PHP's mail() to use this. I have altered php.ini to path to sendmail.postfix, I have also added the necessary sasl options to main.cf
[22:02:19] <LiquidFusi0n> However when I run the PHP script, (mail() ) I don't even get an error in maillog
[22:02:36] <LiquidFusi0n> I'm using CentOS 6
[22:02:44] <LiquidFusi0n> Latest PHP
[22:02:45] <LiquidFusi0n> and
[22:03:12] <LiquidFusi0n> mail_version = 2.6.6
[22:03:42] <danblack> so running command sendmail.postfix on the commandline works and generates logs?
[22:03:53] <uqlev> LiquidFusi0n, php -v
[22:04:01] <danblack> check your /var/log/messages too
[22:04:12] <LiquidFusi0n> Right I'll check if that generates a log
[22:04:14] <seekwill> Break down your flow into manageble, and testable, pieces
[22:04:30] <seekwill> PHP to Postfix, then Postfix to Gmail
[22:04:36] <seekwill> Or vice versa, whatever
[22:04:55] <LiquidFusi0n> danblack that didn't do anything to my log
[22:05:35] <LiquidFusi0n> just kernal and yum in messages
[22:06:03] <LiquidFusi0n> PHP 5.3.3 for uqlev
[22:06:08] <LiquidFusi0n> seekwill
[22:06:30] <uqlev> LiquidFusi0n, who said it is latest php?
[22:06:41] <LiquidFusi0n> I believe I did
[22:06:46] <LiquidFusi0n> I may be wrong
[22:07:00] <LiquidFusi0n> yes I am
[22:07:07] <LiquidFusi0n> .10 :P
[22:07:10] <LiquidFusi0n> oh well
[22:07:34] <LiquidFusi0n> seekwill: I have just noticed the mail is appearing in /var/spool/mail/root
[22:07:48] <LiquidFusi0n> So what stage would that mean I am at? PHP to postfix?
[22:08:12] <seekwill> yay
[22:08:22] <LiquidFusi0n> hmm
[22:08:38] <LiquidFusi0n> why do I see nothing in my log? I wonder is there a way to show the postfix log path?
[22:09:17] <danblack> !logs
[22:09:17] <knoba> danblack: "logs" : postfix logs to the mail facility of syslog. Something like grep -i `postconf -h syslog_facility` /path/to/syslog_config_file should tell you where logs are going. also see !no_logs and !have2mung
[22:09:18] <uqlev> LiquidFusi0n, try to use first mail command if it affects postfix logs
[22:09:54] <seekwill> /topic is cool too
[22:10:09] <LiquidFusi0n> first mail command?
[22:10:22] <uqlev> LiquidFusi0n, man mail
[22:10:35] <seekwill> telnet dude!
[22:10:39] <seekwill> oh
[22:11:17] <LiquidFusi0n> /var/log/maillog
[22:11:24] <LiquidFusi0n> hmm so I was looking in the right log
[22:11:25] <uqlev> seekwill, probably he doesn't need smtpd at all
[22:11:30] <LiquidFusi0n> no
[22:11:34] <LiquidFusi0n> I just want outgoing

[22:25:23] <lunaphyte_> a null client will work just fine with mail ()
[22:25:39] <LiquidFusi0n> Apologies rob0, and the room.
[22:25:48] <lunaphyte_> it's effectively exactly what it's for.
[22:25:55] <LiquidFusi0n> well I have just attempted to install nullmailer
[22:26:03] <lunaphyte_> i'd recommend msmtp
[22:26:08] <LiquidFusi0n> So I just point php.ini to the binary?
[22:26:16] <lunaphyte_> no. leave php.ini alone
[22:26:28] <thumbs> sigh.
[22:26:29] *** filop has joined #postfix
[22:26:32] <LiquidFusi0n> Hmm, how will it know which program to use?
[22:26:47] <LiquidFusi0n> To send the mail that is
[22:26:55] <lunaphyte_> a properly installed null client will work just fine
[22:27:17] *** filop has quit IRC
[22:27:21] <LiquidFusi0n> OK, do I have to disable postfix & || sendmail?
[22:27:27] <lunaphyte_> disable?
[22:27:28] <LiquidFusi0n> for the null client to work
[22:27:32] <thumbs> define "disable"
[22:27:34] <lunaphyte_> no, completely purge from the system.
[22:27:34] <LiquidFusi0n> well kill the process
[22:27:49] <thumbs> postfix doesn't need to run, that's for sure.
[22:27:58] <LiquidFusi0n> right I'll kill that now
[22:28:17] <lunaphyte_> running mail server software is for mail servers. it simply doesn't belong installed on computers that aren't mail servers.
[22:28:22] <lunaphyte_> remove it. completely.
[22:28:36] <LiquidFusi0n> ah
[22:28:51] <LiquidFusi0n> So with a null client I can connect to the gmail smtp to send mail?
[22:29:03] *** ciklid has quit IRC
[22:29:50] <lunaphyte_> of course
[22:29:59] <lunaphyte_> !nullclient
[22:29:59] <knoba> lunaphyte_: "nullclient" : a null client is a computer that can only send mail. it receives no mail from the network, and it does not deliver any mail locally. while postfix can be configured to fill this role, it is often unnecessary overkill, and a much simpler software package is more appropriate. see !nullclient_software for more details.
[22:30:20] <LiquidFusi0n> Well I'll be damned
[22:30:25] *** Bry8Star has quit IRC
[22:30:39] <LiquidFusi0n> And you suggested msmtop
[22:30:42] <LiquidFusi0n> msmtp*
[22:30:53] <lunaphyte_> indeed i did
[22:30:54] <LiquidFusi0n> I'll grab the source,
[22:31:05] <lunaphyte_> what operating system are you using?
[22:31:11] <LiquidFusi0n> CentOS 6
[22:31:16] <lunaphyte_> oh. yikes.
[22:31:23] <LiquidFusi0n> :(
[22:31:38] <LiquidFusi0n> I don't like yikes... if it were up to me I'd have slax
[22:31:38] <LiquidFusi0n> :D
[22:33:40] <uqlev> LiquidFusi0n, distro is a matter of taste but run obsolete php with httpd is big security risk
[22:34:02] <LiquidFusi0n> not particularly
[22:34:14] <LiquidFusi0n> it's not obsolete... .7 behind?
[22:34:26] <LiquidFusi0n> and my httpd is secured well :)
[22:34:33] <seekwill> uqlev: RHEL backports
