Just emerged Postfix, Postfixadmin and Postgresql and was having a click about on the Postfix admin login page and found that the "Postfix Admin 2.3.5" link bottom left side linked to "http://malier.ru/". My guess is that this is not meant to happen :) anyone else noticed this?
Doing a string search for http://malier.ru/ but my disk is big and my box is slow so it will take a while. :)

Well I didn't manage to find http://malier.ru/ in any files other than my browser cache and history I cleaned those but the "Postfix Admin 2.3.5" link on the Postfixadmin page still took me to http://malier.ru/. Kind of strange that a mail administration front end should link to a Russian site?
Got me to wondering what would have transpired had I been met by the usual admin login page which was in fact a fake and the admin login details neatly fished. A downside to browser based administration............always check the address bar!

OK! Mystery solved courtesy of Christian Boltz at PostfixAdmin.

The link points to postfixadmin.com - a domain owned by a former developer of PostfixAdmin who left the project some years ago. He silently gave up the domain without telling anybody, and when I noticed the domain was for sale for quite some $$$, I wasn't too interested in wasting my money.

Instead, I changed the link to postfixadmin.sf.net. This change was done for the 2.3.6 release, so you should simply update to this version. If you don't want to update, edit the links in templates/footer.php.


The postfixadmin.com address now auto redirects to http://malier.ru/!
