I am curious if there are any ideas on how to sort the mail that has been marked as spam before or during delivery. I have used amaildrop script in the past to do this but it meant editing the qmail-defult files by hand to make it work. I am looking for an easy automated method for dealing with this.

Sorry but I don't know how we could do that ...
But if you have a solution, I'd like to heard that :)
At the moment, we use an IMAP client which moves automatically emails into target directories ...

Hi,
If I understood corectly, you need this kind of script. I am using it to move spam mails in a spam directory, to help spamassassin to learn more avout spams :) . Script can be used from crontab or just put a sleep in it .
#!/bin/sh
for x in /var/spool/qmailscan/quarantine/new/* ; do y=`cat $x | grep "Quarantine-Description"|cut -f2 -d " "`
if [ $y == "SPAM" ] ; then
mv $x /home/spam
fi
done
/usr/bin/sa-learn --spam /home/spam

From here you can change "Quarantine-Description" with something like "X-Spam-Status:" and run the script against user's Maildir directories.
Choose or not to choose , let M$ do it for you, or penguin will set you free

Hello, thanks for that wonderful helping. Sorry if I'm wrong, but i think there is a 'bug' in this how-to.
When you say "Put the following line in a startup script (under debian, for example : /etc/init.d/bootmisc.sh)" and then you tell us to create a qmail init script, it makes svscan to run twice, bringing a lot of troubles!
Thanks!

Hi, I get an error about errno compiling ezmlm.
there is an aditional patch (ftp://moni.csi.hu/pub/glibc-2.3.1/ezmlm-idx-0.53.400.unified_41.patch) to correct the errno compile error.

This is for the 0.53.400 version but works fine with 0.53.

Thanks a lots.

Quick modification to your instructions request.
/var/qmail/supervise/qmail-send/run

should be:
env env - PATH="/var/qmail/bin:/usr/local/bin" \
qmail-start ./Maildir/

which is the same as what's in the /var/qmail/rc file. Without this modification it won't stop QMail all the way. It doesn't like you calling another script from this script, so I put the contents of the other script in this script and now it stops qmail perfectly.

Why didn't you include ClamAV instructions? It was quite easy and painless to install. However the only issue I had was I couldn't find unzoo. I had unzip, I copied lha off another server, but could not find unzoo anywhere nor could I find the source. Everythign compiled fine though.

Some Courier-IMAP info. First off, if your doing this on Redhat/Fedora you'll have to add --with-redhat to the configure line or else it pushes you to install the rpm's, which isn't as efficient.
We're also now up to 2.2.1 but that patch you had us run still works.
However, when I compiled and installed, it would hang after authenticating, just sit there. After testing, I discovered it would work if I did the ./configure without exporting those CFLAG's first, something about -DHAVE_OPEN_SMTP_RELAY -DHAVE_VLOGAUTH make it mess up. Still have more playing to do to figure out why. But just a FYI.

Btw... Your documentation rules. This is my defacto standard when creating a mail server. Keep up the good work!

Ohh, another thing about Courier (sorry);
chown vpopmail:vchkpw /usr/local/courier-imap/share/imapd.pem

This won't work until after you enable imapd-ssl and start Courier. Then it'll create that imapd.pem file and then you can change the permissions. So if you try to set permissions on the file before enabling imapd-ssl then you'll get a file not found error. No biggy, but your instructions are so clean and efficient I figured you may want to put that command after you mention to turn on imapd-ssl

Ignore my previous post about courier-imap not liking -DHAVE_OPEN_SMTP_RELAY -DHAVE_VLOGAUTH I discovered it had to do with other CFLAGS I was using, I believe either -mmmx or -ffast-math or -malign-double caused the issue. Just trying to increase the speed of the binary's.

On another note, I am beginning to create some documentation on the installation and setup of ClamAV, including a trick to increase the speed of anti-virus scanning of emails by 50%
http://clamav-qmail.glitchsys.com/

After looking it over, you're welcome to modify and integrate it how you see fit, or just link to my site. Keep up the great work!

In your qmail-scanner documentation, you have the option --lang fr_FR in your configure line. This is why my postmaster emails are coming in french :-) I had to remove that option, by default you may want to remove that option as well, unless most of your visitors are french speaking?

To sort out spam after they were marked from spamassassin we use ifspamh running from a .qmail file.
http://www.gbnet.net/~jrg/qmail/ifspamh/

The only thing is that it increases the load on spamd, but it works fine for our installations.

We use another script which deletes all spam-mails after they had been stayed 60 days in the isspam maibox.

edit /var/qmail/rc

Should be:

I have noticed a slight problem with the installation specified for vpopmail above. The tcp.smtp file option is enabled with out specifing the SPECIFIC file, just the path of the would be file. This seems to create a problem for vpopmail 5.2.2 as it needs to spcify the specific file name. The entee in the configure script should look like this -- > --enable-tcpserver-file=/var/vpopmail/etc/tcp.smtp

I finally found this problem after diggin and diggen and figured it's mostly my fault for the cut/paste installation I did anyway.

IN the vpopmail 5.4.0 instructions, I believe you need to change --enable-libdir=/usr/include/mysql/ to --enable-libdir=/usr/lib/mysql/

Notice the change from include/ to lib

Without that change I got a compile error during make when trying to compile vpopmail. I'm on a Redhat 9 system. (not by choice)

In the SpamAssasin section, for Redhat 9, you have to use:
LANG=C perl Makefile.PL

instead of straight "perl Makefile.PL" same kind of Redhat 9 strangeness.

First, awesome HOWTO. I greatly appreciate the work you've done!

I noticed a small error that took me all day to figure out once it had broken everything that messed with vpopmail. About half-way down the page in Section 12, Qmailadmin, you have this command:

echo "-I/home/vpopmail/include" >> /home/vpopmail/etc/inc_deps

Later in Section 14, Courier, you have this:

echo "-I/home/vpopmail/include/" > /home/vpopmail/etc/inc_deps

I wasn't paying attention (my fault) and ran both commands. After doing the one without the trailing slash (/), everytime I ran configure, sed would die and leave a 0-length Makefile. Really frustrating were all the Google posts with no real fixes mentioned :-)

So, in my experience, you HAVE to make sure you include the trailing slash there.

Ok, I just finished going over this whole document and here's what I found. The most important and problematic stuff I listed closer to the top, and things get a little more knit-picky towards the end. Forgive me if I seem like I'm being picky about some of this stuff. I really like the work you've done, and I hope my comments will help make this document even better.

First, let me repeat what others have said about the location of MySQL. I'm also on RH9 and I believe the way Redhat installs everything, MySQL is placed in unusual directories. My stuff was located here:

--enable-libdir=/usr/lib/mysql
--enable-incdir=/usr/include/mysql

This is also true with EZMLM where you tell us to change the path under sub_mysql/conf-sqlld, and also under the qmailadmin section where we check to see if /home/vpopmail/etc/lib_deps contains the lines you specified. Also on this line, I had -lcrypt, but you didn't mention anything about this, or whether it's OK.

When installing courier-imap, I had some big problems. Checking inter7's website, they specify that you MUST run "configure" and "make" as a non-privlidged user. Your instructions didn't say anything about this. When I did that, everything worked fine.

For the qmail startup script, I had some problems. When I ran this script for the first time, I kept getting a bunch of lockfile errors. I ended up changing this to the script used in Life With Qmail, and everything got better. I'm not totally sure if that was the reason for the errors, but maybe other people can confirm this from their own testing.

Since I am on Redhat, Spamassassin came pre-installed as an RPM. People should remove this if they have it. You also tell us to edit /etc/init.d/spamassassin and change a couple of lines. I didn't see the lines you were talking about, so I skipped this part. When I ran the tests to see if it worked, you said we would get "hits=1000" but instead I got "hits=6.9". Don't know if that's bad or what. I also didn't see anything about "tests=GTUBE" or "autolearn=no". The version you said would be 2.60, but mine said 2.55, which makes sense because that's the version we installed. Not sure where you got 2.60.

Under section 11.1 you tell people to echo "tech" into the alias files. Maybe it would be better to tell people to replace "tech" with some other account of their choosing. Also, you said for us to edit /var/qmail/users/assign and add a line. I believe this done automatically when you use vpopmail's vadddomain command. I think the only thing the user must do is make sure the period is there. Otherwise, they can use vadddomain to accomplish this.

I had a few problems downloading from the various wget commands. I don't know if the sites were temporarily down, or permanently down, so I figured you could look into this and see what you find. Here are the ones I had problems downloading:

The errno patch for daemontools
Autorespond from inter7's website
gdbm from mirors.kernel.org

In EZMLM, it's better if you use mv -f so you don't have to confirm everything.

In the Daemontools section, you said we should comment out the last line from /etc/inittab (the svscan line) but you didn't say later on that we should uncomment this line. I forgot and had to come back later and uncomment the line.

In section 3, TCPServer, you talked about installing the development ssl lib from cr.yp.to. Not sure what that was or where to find it, but I didn't install anything apart from what the directions specified, so I don't know if I really needed this or not.

Also, your numbers are out of step. You've got the "Files" section and the "References" section both labelled as #20.

Other than this, I found the guide to be very complete and extremely useful. I hope that some of these tweaks will help to make it even better.

Also, when using the Useradd command, it's best to use the -M option so that home directories are not created for the user. If on Redhat, you can use the -n option to avoid making a group of the same name, which is RH's default behavior.

One more thing I just found that you should include... if you want to mark your spam messages with a prefix in the subject line, you need to use the following argument in your ./configure for qmail-scanner.

--scanners "clamscan,fast_spamassassin=[SPAM]"

This will add "[SPAM]" to the beginning of all subject lines for spam messages and will make your users very happy! The message headers are still written with the spam=yes so users could filter their mail using the headers, but unfortunately most users aren't accustomed to viewing or manipulating message headers.

In the VPopMail 5.4.0 instructions. There are some problems with Redhat 9, maybe other distros. I had to change:
--enable-libdir=/usr/include/mysql/ to
--enable-libdir=/usr/lib/mysql/

Note: Change /usr/include to /usr/lib

Otherwise you get this error:
---
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lmysqlclient

collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
---

P.S - To you people above this post posting errors and asking for help, this is not the place. This is just for bug reports, instruction modifications and such. There's a seperate forum for help.

P.P.S - I would recommend maybe a brief pros/cons to Vpopmail 5.2.x vs 5.4.x and QMailAdmin 1.0.6 vs 1.2.0

Here's another problem... you'll need to tell people how to handle the qmail-queue.log. I just discovered it this morning and found it to be over 200 meg! I only learned about it because I was wondering what was causing my /var partition to fill up so quickly. Best bet is to add something to /etc/logrotate.conf. Here's what I put.

/var/spool/qmailscan/qmail-queue.log {
daily
create 0600 qscand qscand
rotate 7
compress
}

great work this howto !!! It saved me a lot of time.... But I found some problems during the installation - I am using FreeBsd 4.9, and some of the programs (Qmailadmin, vpopmail, etc.) refused to compile in a normal way.

/usr/local/mysql/lib/libmysqlclient.a(password.o): In function `scramble_323':
password.o(.text+0x1c3): undefined reference to `floor'
password.o(.text+0x247): undefined reference to `floor'
/usr/local/mysql/lib/libmysqlclient.a(password.o): In function `check_scramble_323':
password.o(.text+0x3aa): undefined reference to `floor'
password.o(.text+0x424): undefined reference to `floor'
*** Error code 1

-this and some similar problems can be solved by editing the Makefile and adding -lm to the lines that
include -lmysqlclient -lz.

e.g. this :
auth_libs = -L/home/vpopmail/lib -lvpopmail -L/usr/local/mysql/lib -lmysqlclient -lz -lcrypt
wil become :
auth_libs = -L/home/vpopmail/lib -lvpopmail -L/usr/local/mysql/lib -lmysqlclient -lz -lcrypt -lm

Its simple. But it took me a lot fo time to google-out :D

I figured this would show some way of using Courier and vpopmail with MySQL as a backend for authentication

Instead the doc simply goes into using vchkpasswd with Courier-authd anyway?!?

hi all... ( salut les frenchy ! )

great work ...
only one thing is missing... filtering local traffic with qmail-scanner.

With this configuration, local mail traffic isn"t scanning... so local users can send virus or .exe ...

my /var/qmail/supervise/qmail-smtpd/run script:

#!/bin/sh
QMAILQUEUE="/var/qmail/bin/qmail-scanner-queue.pl" export QMAILQUEUE

Connais-tu une astuce pour configurer qmailadmin en français ? Doit on le faire lors de la compil ?

Merci pour ton aide.

It is not a compilation option.
If you want to get the french version for example, you have to change your locales in your navigator (fr_FR). Qmailadmin will change the language against this variable.

I need some help.I just want 2 check MX records for incoming ip of stmp session & sender domain?Should i use SPF (http://spf.pobox.com) ? Is there an alternative ? 10x

SPF Looks interesting. I may look into implementing it, however I do see problems with the concept. It uses DNS to say which ip's are allowed to send email from said domain. I travel w/ my laptop a lot and certain networks only allows me to send mail through their mail server, they have a port 25 block. So I simply change my outbound mail server to theirs, but I still let the from field be from my own personal domain. The emails I send would then fail the SPF check, as the outbound mail server I had to use is not officially listed as being able to send mail for my domain. I'd have to make quick dns changes everytime I got into a situation like this, and while I'm technically able to do this, a lot of other people may not be. I'll see how well their QMail patch takes to qmail. The only other patch I used for qmail that's not listed on this website was a patch that added SSL support to QMail's SMTP server.

Hi all,

I have found this HowTo veru much intresting.

I have installed qmail by following all the steps.

But got stuck at one point that is

when i do

telnet localhost 110 --> it connects
telnet localhost 25 --> Gives error Connection closed by foreign host.

My /home/vpopmail/etc/tcp.smtp

127.0.0.1:allow,RELAYCLIENT="",QMAILQUEUE="/var/qmail/bin/qmail-scanner-queue.pl"
198.168.1.:allow,RELAYCLIENT="",QMAILQUEUE="/var/qmail/bin/qmail-scanner-queue.pl"
:allow,QMAILQUEUE="/var/qmail/bin/qmail-scanner-queue.pl"

-------------------------------------------
else all the same things as present in this howto

When i run netstat -a it shows me

Active Internet connections (servers and established)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State
tcp 0 0 *:1024 *:* LISTEN

So can anyone please spread light on this problem.

When I try to download via pop3 I get the folowing error in outlook:

There was a problem logging onto your mail server. The user name or password was rejected. Server response: ´vmysql: sql error[3]: MySQL server has gone away´...

...but the MySQL server is running and the user name/password is valid.

The server is running on Fedora Core 2.

I did not known that the howto would work good.

the how to give:
mysql> grant update, create, delete, insert, select on vpopmail.* to vpopmail_edit@localhost identified by "pass";
echo "localhost|0|vpopmail_edit|vpass|vpopmail" > ~vpopmail/etc/vpopmail.mysql

In mysql,the password is 'pass',and In the vpopmail.mysql the password is 'vpass',and not give modify the two password ,so after install,most can not use.

so please correct it.

Problem is that md5.h is not longer included by evp.h (which is included
by src/imapcommon.c), so MD5_DIGEST_LENGTH is not defined.
"#include " in src/imapcommon.c fixed it for me.

Please note that there maybe some line wrapping going here, use caution.

I use maildrop to do this for my virtual domains and do it on a per domain basis

create /etc/maildrop directory
create a per domain maildrop fiter file

testdomain.com with owner vpopmail and group vchkpw, permissions should be 600

The testdomain.com maildrop filter looks like this

------------------ cut --------------------
import EXT
import HOST
import HOME

#XXX Uncomment this line for debugging.
#XXX You must create the file var/log/maildrop.log
#XXX with owner vpopmail

#XX logfile "/var/log/maildrop.log"

MAX = 15
VHOME=`/home/vpopmail/bin/vuserinfo -d $EXT@$HOST`
FORWARD="| /var/qmail/bin/forward default-user@testdomin.com"
SPAMFOLDER=".Spam"

log "EXT is $EXT"
log "HOST is $HOST"
log "VHOME is $VHOME"

if ( "no such user" =~ /$VHOME/:d )
{
log "no such user - doing forward"
to $FORWARD
}


if (/^X-Spam-Status: *YES/)
{
log "Found spam"

`test -d "$VHOME/Maildir/$SPAMFOLDER"`
if( $RETURNCODE == 0 )
{
log "spam delivery 1"
to "$VHOME/Maildir/$SPAMFOLDER"
}

log "maildirmake"

`/usr/local/bin/maildirmake "$VHOME/Maildir/$SPAMFOLDER"`
`test -d "$VHOME/Maildir/$SPAMFOLDER"`
if( $RETURNCODE == 0 )
{
log "spam delivery 2"
to "$VHOME/Maildir/$SPAMFOLDER"
}
}

log "good mail delivery"

to $VHOME/Maildir

------------------- cut --------------------

change .qmail-default in /home/vpopmail/doamins/testdomain.com to

| /usr/local/bin/maildrop /etc/maildrop/testdomain.com

The "-x" did the trick for me. I now have:

SPAMDOPTIONS="-d -v -x -a -m 50"

in /etc/sysconfig/spamassassin (The RedHat init script sources /etc/sysconfig/spamassassin, not /etc/default/spamassassin).

Also OPTIONS seems to have been renamed to SPAMDOPTIONS in the init script.

/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i586-suse-linux/3.3.3/../../../../i586-suse-linux/bin/ld: cannot find -lz

Do you know how I can fix this? I'm running Suse Linux 9.1

Best Regards, Markus

I was going nuts a few days ago when trying to do just what you describe here. I read your howto and everything is much clearer to me now, everything works like a charm, thank you very much.

Hi.
Bef all really greets for the original and really helpful howto.
You are really a good person :)

Howto works perfect especially on Debian OS ;) but i have a question:

Why haven't you taking care about ipv6 patches for qmail or netqmail ?
I think it would be nice to add :)

Well :)
Basically this documentation is the installation procedure of my mail servers. As I don't need ipv6 (yet), I never tried but I will be happy to include that if you successed ;)

i succeded :)

I needed just a ucspi-tcp patch cause qmail/netqmail use tcpserver function.
Patch is available here http://www.fefe.de/ucspi/ucspi-tcp-0.88-ipv6.diff14.bz2

Then just apply it and qmail/netqmail service as smtp and pop3 will listen on ipv6 address too :)
Courier-imap have native ipv6 support

Thx & Byez DoM

When I add a domain, using the script ./vadddomain, the domain isn't fully created in vqadmin(postmaster missing). Whe I create it in vqadmin, the mysql tables of vpopmain doesn't change values(adding users).

When I create users using qmailadmin of the problemed domain, nothing happen in mysql too...

Can anyone post the way to add a domain and user easilly? Or send it to my email. :p

Hi, great job with this howto ...

However i have a strange problem, everything runs fine but after some time qmail-pop3 hangs... I can connect to pop3 sevrer (login/passwd sequence) but nothing more... qmail-smptd and qmail-send are working fine. I tryed to find the problem and i think it has something to do with tcpserver and logging - pop3 log is empty...
And only
killall svscan
killall svscanboot
helps ...

Does someone have a clue ? ...

Nice How-To document.

I got one small problem... I follow all the instructions line by line but im still getting errors sending email from my Outlook client using the Qmail as my smtp server.
I am getting this error from outlook-express:
----
The message could not be sent because one of the recipients was rejected by the server. The rejected e-mail address was 'aldin@yahoo.com'. Subject 'test', Account: 'users@Aldine.Net', Server: 'smtp.aldine.net', Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '553 sorry, that domain isn't in my list of allowed rcpthosts (#5.7.1)', Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 553, Error Number: 0x800CCC79

First : outlook really suckz. You should use a real mail client (http://www.mozilla.org/products/thunderbird/)

The rcpthost issue comes from the tcpserver relay stuff (pop-before-smtp) which is not working (if you don't want to spend to much time on it, consider the tcpserver mysql solution).

Also, could you elaborate further on this item:

If you use the mysql relay solution for tcpserver, replace -x /home/vpopmail/etc/tcp.smtp.cdb by -S

If i used the following on my /var/qmail/supervise/qmail-smtpd/run:

-r relays.ordb.org /var/qmail/bin/qmail-smtpd 2>&1

I get this error message:

What am i doing wrong? What does "If you use the mysql relay solution for tcpserver, replace -x /home/vpopmail/etc/tcp.smtp.cdb by -S" mean?

Just an FYI : I was receiving linker undefined reference errors when compiling TCP Server with your mysql patch. This included messages like:

db.o(.text+0x15): In function `open_db':
: undefined reference to `mysql_init'
db.o(.text+0x3f): In function `open_db':
: undefined reference to `mysql_real_connect'

I was able to fix this by manually editting 'load' and removing the first instance of '-L/usr/lib/mysql -lmysqlclient' AND adding '-L/usr/local/lib/mysql -lmysqlclient -lz' at the END OF THE LINE, therein my line looked like:

exec gcc -s -I/usr/local/include/mysql -o "$main" "$main".o ${1+"$@"} -L/usr/local/lib/mysql -lmysqlclient -lz

This compiled with no problem. This issue is mentioned at:

http://sunsite.mff.cuni.cz/MIRRORS/ftp.mysql.com/doc/en/Link_errors.html

Hope this helps someone! Great write-up!

It looks like Courier IMAP 4.x (with Auth Lib) doesn't support IMAP-before-SMTP.
I worked around this by reverting back to Courier IMAP 3.0.8 (which includes the Auth Lib and doesn't require the courier-authlib package).
Simply use the ./configure options to courier-authlib (which you don't need anymore) when you ./configure courier-imap (3.0.8). After that, just follow the instructions in this How-To.

Does the option -S exist or not? Am i using it the wrong way?

By the way, the server does not accept mail, of course:

if you get an error authdaemon: s_connect() failed: permission denied
use the config options for authlib --mailuser= and --mailgroup= and put your vpopmail and group in their place.
I also updated ld.so.conf with /usr/local/lib/courier-authlib and ran ldconfig and then started /usr/local/libexec/courier-authlib/authdaemond

Hello,

just to post the solution to the mysql connection problem I had as it may help others.

Check that the path to the .so libs of your mysql client is in your /etc/ld.so.conf (eg. /usr/lib)

Then make /sbin/ldconfig -v
(check that your so.libs show on the output)

Stop and start the mysql server, try to add a domain from the command line to see if there is no problem.

Good luck, hope it helps (may be this could be added in the how to...)

Any chance of looking into integrating the DomainKeys patch as shown http://www.jms1.net/qmail/patches/domainkeys.shtml

If not this might be worth at least looking into as the new spec between Yahoo! and Cisco has been submitted to the IETF and there will most likely be people asking about it.

Is there a way with the MYSQL TCP Server way, that IP's in the relaytable can skip teh qmail-scanner section, or have it so select IP's dont get scanned with it, I have certant mail servers that run behind this one, and each time it sends thru a mail it scans it, even thou I dont want it to, I only want to scan the mail coming in from the net, not the mail leaving my network :)

Cheers in advanced.

Hello!
It's maybe not a bug, but I was system hangs because of huge copy (approx. 600) of one message. (I know it seems like spam, and there is ezmlm...).
So maybe the qmail-smtp/run script need a little modification:

exec /usr/local/bin/softlimit -m 40000000 /usr/local/bin/tcpserver -p -R -x /home/vpopmail/etc/tcp.smtp.cdb -u92 -g91 -v -c100 0 smtp /usr/local/bin/rblsmtpd -r relays.ordb.org /var/qmail/bin/qmail-smtpd 2>&1

Hello,
Qmail is installed and all services are working good.

Just now I have noticed that the timestamp of the sent/recieved emails are not of the server, instead time of the sent emails are of client(user) machine from which they are sent. I need to set the timestamp of all outgoing/incoming emails to the server time not the clients. I am using fedora core 4.

Please help me to resolve this issue.

Thanks in advance.

An easy way under debian, to remove Exim properly:

Install package "ssmtp" with a bad/good configuration, that removes Exim completely, and don't obstruct other programs seeking the MTU.
You make it in 5 seconds, and you are sure about the result, because ssmtp isn't a daemon, just a simple script who send mail to an external smtp.

Hello,
I've reinstalled qmail-scanner tu update it in version 2.x. But now in your tutorial the patch qms-analog is not installed, so the file qms-events.log is not created, and so impossible to have qmailstats working fine. Anyone got an idea?

thanks,

Hi, the current howto advises to add the --enable-tcpserver-file=/home/vpopmail/etc/tcp.smtp configure option to compile vpopmail with mysql relay checks. The option has changed to --enable-tcpserver-path and the /home/vpopmail/etc/tcp.smtp file should be touched before that. Also in vpopmail-5.4.1 --enable-domainquotas has been temporarily disabled since the domain quota code is broken.
thanks and keep up the good work :P

Hi! There is a little syntax error with qmailscanner 2.01 - qmailstats file.
In the qmailstats file you have to change qms-events.log path to /var/spool/qscan/qms-events.log

Bye: mP

Hi, how did you manage to use qms-events.log? Did you apply the patch for qmail-scanner 1.25 to qmail-scanner 2.01? I am having the same problem which you can read a couple of posts above. I can not longer use the qmailstats scripts, because qms-events is not filled with data. Thanks for your reply.

On my Debian 3 Sarge I use apt-get install spamassassin, ie. I use versio n 3.0.2. With this version spamd I must add to params -u vpopmail (man spamd). But spamd now doesn't work with vpopmail virtual users (to create ./spamassasin dir). Can you help me ?

In mail.log I see :

Nov 5 19:50:06 localhost spamd[14588]: connection from localhost.localdomain [127.0.0.1] at port 33288
Nov 5 19:50:06 localhost spamd[14588]: Creating default_prefs [Error: unable to setuid/.spamassassin/user_prefs]
