How to Rebuild Postfix Mail Server
« on: November 02, 2014, 03:41:53 AM »
Starting from the CWP version 0.9.6+ you have a new awesome Postfix Mail Server Manager (reBuilder)
With single click select additional Mail Server options and rebuild your mail server according to your needs.

Location in the CWP.admin area
Left Menu --> Email --> Postfix Manager

Options
- AntiSpam and AntiVirus Protection (Spamassassin and ClamAV are scanning all your incoming emails, this requires server with min. 1Gb RAM).
- rDNS check (Drop all emails if no rDNS/PTR)
- Reject Unknown Hostname (Reject unless the hostname has valid DNS record.)


AntiSpam and AntiVirus

It's possible that ClamAV Antivirus will work with 512MB RAM server but its recommended to have 1GB+ RAM.

ClamAV almost always brings problems, such as installing Spamassassin only because it is enough to stop some spam.
or I can use the dnsbl only to block spam?

Using rbl only blocking, still allowing email with virus passing through your server, and these days, crypto virus is scaring most.

I already create email accounts on the CWP server but have not enabled clamav, amavis and others associated with the configuration of email, by enabling all features in the "Rebuild Postfix Configuration" whether to delete e-mail accounts that have been made?

Thanks and regards,

mas @arifin @lexz

Try to keep amavis, clam and spamassasin running but let postfix bypass them all..
in mail.cf comment this line "content_filter = smtp-amavis:[127.0.0.1]:10024"
in master.cf comment this line "-o content_filter=smtp-amavis:127.0.0.1:10024"
restart postfix, will make it ignore both amavis, clam and spamassasin

then one by one enable them

@Jae First thank you for your answer.

I tried rebuilding postfix including ClamAV, Amavis & Spamassassin and editing the configfiles.

I couldn't find the mail.cf file. (I found a main.cf but did not had the rule you said)
In the master.cf I commented the line and restarted the server. Still the same result. :(

I removed "check_sender_access hash:/etc/postfix/sender_whitelist," from main.cf and the server is working!

Is it neccesary to do something after I changed it?
Or is it safe to run the server this way?

Thank you for your help!
