Postfix / Re: Mail queue filling by the second
« on: April 15, 2016, 11:16:49 AM »
Your website is have no firewall which mean anyone can brute force your server and use it as a spambot target

I have this error and dovecot can't start... it is a fresh install on CentOS 6.6 (64bits)

Should I install sieve (yum install dovecot-pigeonhole)???

Any idea how to solve this???

problems usually results from custom built OS, I recommend to use the bare bones CentOS 6 minimal.

The provided sample for SPF is from my own server, I know the IP was exposed but it is public anyway and I have a working firewall, if your firewall are off and you are still configuring your server, never ever post your IP address.

rDNS/PTR - ask your host provider or ISP,  Ditigal Ocean and Vulture have options for this so you won't bother them.. be warned that this 2 provider are unmanaged,you fix your server on your own.

DKIM - you can use opendkim
Code: [Select]
yum install opendkimcant' remember is WCP have this on default, been long since I last use WCP, I moved to another control panel since I need CentOS 7 and WCP only support 6.

SPF - You need to set this up in your domain name with the mail pointer..
Code: [Select] IN TXT "v=spf1 a mx ip4: ip6:2001:19f0:7000:9e47:5400:00ff:fe0d:279c ?all"
MX you should have a default and working MX record with WCP. Sometimes, you need to edit it.

 SASL LOGIN authentication failed is login attempts on your dovecot/postfix server from random person trying to attack your server.

Put all the subdomains outside /public_html

This will fix all of your problem with .htaccess

Any reason why you don't want a root password? You are making your server a free for all server for spammers and botnet exploiters

E-Mail / Re: Cannot send email from my server.

I can't also send email out, in fact all my emails are stuck at the mail que.
One thing is odd, root@cron reports can send email out

would love to know how to fix email issues. I got problems too and it is about emails getting stuck at the que for all incoming and outgoing.

I tested your email link but found out that it redirects to from

my 2 domains does not do that
I got both


maybe that is a step to start looking at

E-Mail / Mails stays in the Que
« on: July 21, 2015, 05:06:45 AM »

I installed from fresh OS.

Everything is working fine except that emails stays at mail que, this is for both incoming and outgoing emails.

I already run out of any means to fix this problem. My VPS is a cloudbase CentOS 64
