I'm probably going to update my old mailserver to run netqmail in a couple of days... is there anything I should know before doing so? I'm hoping that just doing an "emerge --unmerge qmail" and then following the guide will give me a working mailserver...


I would backup all config files and remove them from the original location - just to make sure old configs are out of the way, then use the old configs as reference when modifying the new default files.

As a first go, try telneting from a pc connected at the same subnet as the server (and same switch). Then you'll know for sure the ISP connection is not making any trouble for testing. If that is a problem too, try telnet to the servers public IP from localhost. If you can't do that eighter put the server on default port, then repeat all this steps.

Now we get so many if's. Try this first and post what you find out.

Thanks for the pointer. I was able to get my email system running again!

I found a program still running, that I thought I had killed, that was causing quite a few problems. I was able to get back to "normal", at least running again.

Thanks for your help.

Greetings,

Thanks for the howto and all the help you've given everyone else. I have learned much. I'm having a problem with rcptchk. I have the latest version and it appears to work for the domain, but not for the user. Any user@mydomain.com is allowed.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
ns1 chkuser_pg # ./rcptchk-pg.sh anyone@notmydomain.com
E553 Sorry, that domain isn't in my list of allowed rcpthosts (#5.5.3)
ns1 chkuser_pg # ./rcptchk-pg.sh notvaliduser@mydomain.com
ns1 chkuser_pg #

Thanks again,

Scott

2) "access denied", "permission denied" or "no such file"
There might be a reason why qmail-scanner-2.01.ebuild is ~masked.
I ran into access denied errors or missing file errors at a few places. You might do so as well. So: (if you don't get access denied errors or missing file errors, don't do this step!)
Code:

> mkdir -p /var/spool/qscan/quarantine/viruses/tmp /var/spool/qscan/quarantine/viruses/cur /var/spool/qscan/quarantine/viruses/new
> mkdir -p /var/spool/qscan/quarantine/spam/tmp /var/spool/qscan/quarantine/spam/cur /var/spool/qscan/quarantine/spam/new
> mkdir -p /var/spool/qscan/quarantine/policy/tmp /var/spool/qscan/quarantine/policy/cur /var/spool/qscan/quarantine/policy/new
> mkdir -p /var/spool/qscan/working/tmp /var/spool/qscan/working/cur /var/spool/qscan/working/new
> mkdir -p /var/spool/qscan/archive/tmp /var/spool/qscan/archive/cur /var/spool/qscan/archive/new
> chown -R qscand:qscand /var/spool/qscan/

THANKS for the great guide! after fiddling a bit i got it working finally.
i just want to add something to the above, as it prevented me to receive mail.

qmail-scanner-2.01 installed without a problem just afterwards i recognized that
Quote:
> tail -f /var/log/mail.err
May 16 03:09:17 qmail-scanner-queue.pl: X-Qmail-Scanner-2.01st:[] cannot create /var/spool/qscan/tmp - No such file or directory
gave me the described errors.

i did not create these folders and files because they were already created but with a different name:
Quote:
> /var/spool/qmailscan $ ls
archive quarantine quarantine.log tmp viruses.log working

instead i edited nano -w /var/qmail/bin/qmail-scanner-queue.pl and changed the three places where it pointed to the wrong directory.
to finish i had to initialsie the system by runnung
Quote:
> /var/qmail/bin/qmail-scanner-queue.pl -z
> chown qscand:qscand qmail-scanner-queue-version.txt
> /var/qmail/bin/qmail-scanner-queue.pl -g
as well as restarting the services.

it might be trivial, but it might help somebody...
thanks again! :D

EDIT:
these steps i described did not solve all the problems, so i ended up creating the directories as described.

I'm sorry, I'm not able to create that problem. My box returns:

Are anyone else experiencing problems like "stiret"? Please try run the commands below as root or qmaild and post the two lines it returns. (replace mydomain.com with whatever domain you're hosting on your server)
Code:

# cd /var/qmail/plugins/chkuser_pg/
# ./rcptchk-pg.sh notvaliduser@mydomain.com  ; echo $?

Hello again,

I've done some more investigating on this. The binaries appear to be working correctly as shown below. The vpopchk.sh script does not work as expected....at least not as I expected. Is there any other information which may help track this down? I don't mind just deleting everything to the catchall account, in fact that might be more appropriate anyway.

ns1 chkuser_pg # /var/vpopmail/bin/vuserinfo -n validuser@mydomain.com ; echo $?
validuser
0
ns1 chkuser_pg # /var/vpopmail/bin/vuserinfo -n notavaliduser@mydomain.com ; echo $?
no such user notavaliduser@mydomain.com
255
ns1 chkuser_pg # /var/vpopmail/bin/vuserinfo -n aliasuser@mydomain.com ; echo $?
no such user aliasuser@mydomain.com
255
ns1 chkuser_pg # /var/vpopmail/bin/valias aliasuser@mydomain.com ; echo $?
aliasuser@mydomain.com -> &validuser@mydomain.com
0
ns1 chkuser_pg # ./vpopchk.sh aliasuser@mydomain.com ; echo $?
255
ns1 chkuser_pg # ./vpopchk.sh notavaliduser@notmydomain.com ; echo $?
255
ns1 chkuser_pg # ./vpopchk.sh validuser@mydomain.com ; echo $?
255

Here are the permissions on the scripts:

ns1 chkuser_pg # ls -al
total 24
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 May 17 07:39 .
drwxr-xr-x 3 qmaill root 4096 May 14 07:58 ..

-rwxr-x--- 1 root vpopmail 2796 May 17 07:39 vpopchk.sh

and the visudo setup

Hello,

I've emerged netqmail 1.05-r8 and now I have problem with my smtp.
It's sending e-mails without authentication. If I select in my mail client not to authenticate then it's sending e-mails (and it shouldn't).
But if I select to auth. and I give wrong username and pass it's not allowing to send.

Please help me to fix this issue because my server is now an open relay !! :(

Did you check the settings in /etc/tcprules.d/tcp.qmail-smtp and reload the rules after the upgrade?

255


First, I assume you are logged in as root when you do the tests?

Try change the vpopchk.sh to add some debugoutput:
After the lines
Code:

USER=$1
DOMAIN=$2

insert the following line: (should be about line 34)
Code:

echo ${USER} - ${DOMAIN}


Then rerun the tests. Does it print out the correct user and domain acording to the adress you give as parameter?


The only reason I can see that would return 255 is that it doesn't understand the given address. Are you using some non-english letters or characters that may confuse the script?

Code:

is it correct ?

yes, I've updated the rules after I've made changes ...

I have no idea what may cause your problem. Try update the tcprules again
Code:

> cd /etc/tcprules.d/
> tcprules tcp.qmail-smtp.cdb tcp.qmail-smtp.tmp < tcp.qmail-smtp
> svc -t /var/qmail/supervise/qmail-smtpd


you could try to disable the chkuser smtp plugin in case that is causeing any trouble.

Ok, I think I've fix it.

The problem was that tcpserver was relaying 127.0.0.1 connections and I'm using stunnel to allow my users to connect on other port using SSL.
Stunnel is then connecting to port 25 (from localhost) so it's relay client.

My mistake :/

Hello again,

Yes, I am executing the script as root. No, there are no unusual characters in the email accounts. The actual binaries in /var/vpopmail/bin work as expected. The script prints out the correct account information with the additional debugging you suggested.

ns1 chkuser_pg # ./vpopchk.sh valid.user@mydomain.com ; echo $?
valid.user@mydomain.com -
255
ns1 chkuser_pg # ./vpopchk.sh aliasuser@mydomain.com ; echo $?
aliasuser@mydomain.com -
255
ns1 chkuser_pg # ./vpopchk.sh notavaliduser@mydomain.com ; echo $?
notavaliduser@mydomain.com -
255
ns1 chkuser_pg # ./vpopchk.sh anyuser@notmydomain.com ; echo $?
anyuser@notmydomain.com -
255

ns1 chkuser_pg # /var/vpopmail/bin/vuserinfo -n valid.user@mydomain.com ; echo $?
valid.user
0
ns1 chkuser_pg # /var/vpopmail/bin/vuserinfo -n notavaliduser@mydomain.com ; echo $?
no such user notavaliduser@mydomain.com
255
ns1 chkuser_pg # /var/vpopmail/bin/vdominfo -n mydomain.com ; echo $?
mydomain.com
0
ns1 chkuser_pg # /var/vpopmail/bin/vdominfo -n notmydomain.com ; echo $?
Invalid domain name
245

Thanks,

Scott

anyuser@notmydomain.com -

See, that is NOT the correct output. It's detecting the full address as username, and blank domain.
Code:
anyuser@notmydomain.com -

should be
Code:
anyuser - notmydomain.com


Well, the reason for this is that vpopchk expects the input to not be
Code:
vpopchk.sh anyuser@notmydomain.com

but
Code:
vpopchk.sh anyuser notmydomain.com


So, please try againg with the correct form for parameters.

I receive this error every hour via email:

Run parser

Warning: Variable passed to each() is not an array or object in /usr/qms-loganal/qms-loganal.php on line 34


Any ideas how to fix this?

You could try to output what is put into each() on that line:
insert the following line in front of line 34 (pushing what was #34 down to #35)
Code:

echo $parr[$pid]['account']."\n";


then run the cronscript to see what it outputs. (your server will need to recieve a mail between each run in order to anything have anything to output)

Having some issues while sending mail. The problem occurs in both Outlook and Thunderbird. I have SMTP-AUTH enabled (full email address as username, password) with TLS checked off.

Error log shows only this:

Code:

Jun 24 18:45:42 victory vpopmail[10847]: vchkpw-smtp: (PLAIN) login success matt@victory.signet-ring.com:206.126.9.106
Jun 24 18:45:42 victory vpopmail[10847]: vchkpw-smtp: null user name given :206.126.9.106


I've tried without TLS and with. Neither will get the message to send.

What step did I miss?

Update:

I examined the error message "null user name given" which didn't make sense initially. As I thought about it, either A) vchkpw-smtp did not get the username or B) vchkpw-smtp did receive a username from my mail client, but it did not understand the username it was given.

Then I noticed that there were a few methods of authenticating... mainly they differ due to the client used but they all follow the basic auth types of PLAIN, LOGIN, etc... which to me, means SASL.

So the next two things were done:

1. Install cyrus-sasl on my system. I noticed this wasn't installed, and I was quite curious as to how my system would understand the AUTH LOGIN being sent by the mail client without it. Not sure if this was necessary, but I did it anyways.

Once installing cyrus-sasl, I restarted all the qmail services but still got the same error message. At that point I realized more drastic measures were necessary.

2. I blasted away the netqmail installation and tried again. If SASL was not present at the time of build, its possible that the executables were missing necessary libraries to build properly.

I emerge --unmerge'd netqmail-1.05-r4 and then just used the latest ebuild from the gentoo tree (at the time of this post it was netqmail-1.05-r8)

I skipped step 2B "Patch qmail for only_auth_after_tls" because I changed to the newest ebuild, so I wasn't sure if there were any conflicts.

But now I am wondering what exactly only_auth_after_tls is useful for.... and maybe I need to rebuild it with that. Any insights here?

I saw someone else with the same error so I hope this helps.

Thanks for your information tekn0mage. Does it work now, or do you still have problems?

"only_auth_after_tls" makes the smtp server not accept logins before TLS is initiated. This is to force clients to create an encrypted channel before transmitting passwords. Hence smtp-auth should not work if the 'use TLS' option in the mailclient is not used.
Now, when TLS is used for smtp auth there is one more thing that may cause troble on the clientside: anti-virus software with scanning of outbound mail. Norton and Avast for sure doesn't allow any outbound trafic to port 25 if they don't understand the content of the data. When the data is encrypted they don't understand it and will block everything.
What might have been your problem:
with TLS off, the server did not accept the login (requires TLS on)
with TLS on, the local AVsoftware might have stoped the client for sending data (including user/pass)

This is stated in the guide, but not really explained.

If you use Avast you can disable scanning of outbound connections on port 25.
If you use Norton you should try "Norton Removal Tool". (If the removal tool sucseeded you'll get a significantly faster PC. If it didn't succseed you need to reinstall windows) Then install Avast or Comodo.

A workaround for software scanning port 25 and ISPs blocking port 25 is to have a porttranslator (like iptables) on your mailserver so connections on another port (say 2500) will translate to port 25.

Actually I don't run any kind of anti-virus on my PC. A bit risky, indeed, but only if one behaves in a risky manner.

Regarding the error I was noticing about a "null user name", I tried my client in both modes (TLS and non-TLS) and still received the same error.

Now it's possible that through some glitch in the software the changes I made to the authentication mode did not take effect. All in all, things did not work until I performed the above sequence of steps.

The actual use of your guide for me is as a web hosting provider. I host about 130 domains and provide e-mail services to the users using Qmail/Vpopmail, etc.

The software was installed on my primary server by an experienced administrator who is no longer available to assist in administration. Having to get "up to speed" on the presence of Qmail / Vpopmail and qmail-scanner was a priority for me. I've seen and heard of many different implementations, which only compliments Qmail's versatility. This guide, however, was a great startup document for me to get going in a relatively short amount of time. I've been familiar with all the elements for a long time, so I believe I started out with a decent foundation already.

Something I did differently was to enable per-user configuration files for SpamAssassin.

In my /etc/conf.d/spamd file I used the following SPAMD Options

SPAMD_OPTS="-c -d -v -s mail -q -u vpopmail --virtual-config-dir=/var/vpopmail/domains/%d/%l/.spamassassin/"

The -c switch and the --virtual-config-dir switch have made it possible to store the .spamassassin directory in the root of the users mail directory.

Not sure if that is entirely necessary but sometimes users want me to go in and tweak their spam settings a little more. Makes it easier to do that.

I just wish there was a plugin so that users can modify their own SpamAssassin settings. I don't know of any decent front-ends that can help with that.

Other than that, all is working well.

Actually I do have a webinterface that allows users to modify stuff on the server. It would be a minor update to make it posible to for them to change personal spamassassin settings. But, this is a complicated thing that is picky at which servers it will run securely on (it's designed explicitly for the kind of serverssetups I use)

My plan was to simplyfy this thing to provide simple and wapmail admin interface, but i'm too short of time. The wapmail part isn't very userfriedly without the admin interface, thats why the guide is not yet completed with wapmail.
