Problem with CentOS e-mail configuration

Hi all,

I am programming a new webhosting control panel for CentOS 5.x and I am having one problem (it's the last problem, all the rest is working fine).

I don't know how to configure my Mail Delivery Agent (procmail), so that a mail send to info@example.com is saved in /home/example.com/mail and a mail send to info@newexample.com is saved in /home/newexample.com/mail.

At the moment I am using a second server with Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.1 with a similar configuration and on this server procmail is working fine.

How can I find the config-files of procmail there?

Are this procmails configs in a specific place or are they registered somewhere?

It would be great if someone could help me.
HTTP, FTP, POP, SMTP, sendmail, vsftp, bind, sendmail works fine. It's the last problem I have to solve.

If I send an email to a address on the new server, I receive a delivery failed notification:
--------------
This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.

A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:

hallo@sw-cluster.com
SMTP error from remote mail server after RCPT TO:<hallo@sw-cluster.com>:
host mail.sw-cluster.com [87.118.82.66]: 554 5.7.1 <hallo@sw-cluster.com>:
Relay access denied
--------------

This is what the maillog write after receiving an email:
-----------------------
Aug 19 18:37:47 server01 postfix/smtpd[11399]: connect from wp232.webpack.hosteurope.de[80.237.132.239]
Aug 19 18:37:47 server01 postfix/smtpd[11399]: NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from wp232.webpack.hosteurope.de[80.237.132.239]: 554 5.7.1 <hallo@sw-cluster.com>: Relay access denied; from=<support@sourceweb.eu> to=<hallo@sw-cluster.com> proto=ESMTP helo=<wp232.webpack.hosteurope.de>
Aug 19 18:37:47 server01 postfix/smtpd[11399]: disconnect from wp232.webpack.hosteurope.de[80.237.132.239]
-----------------------

I have searched hundreds of files, but I couldn't find the file where the email-addresses are configured.

Regards,

Peter

Hi sourceweb,

I think you are talking about the Postfix not Procmail.
Try these links if these could resolve your issues

The virtual_mailbox_maps is a mapping to the Maildir folder


virtual_transport = virtual
virtual_mailbox_domains = proxy:mysql:/etc/postfix/mysql-virtual-domains.cf
virtual_mailbox_base = /home/vmail
virtual_mailbox_maps = proxy:mysql:/etc/postfix/mysql-mailbox.cf
virtual_mailbox_limit_maps = proxy:mysql:/etc/postfix/mysql-mailbox-quota.cf
virtual_uid_maps = static:101
virtual_gid_maps = static:90
mailbox_command = /usr/bin/procmail -a "$EXTENSION" DEFAULT=$HOME/Maildir/ MAILDIR=$HOME/Maildir

eg
info@newexample.com would be save in

/home/vmail/newexample.com/info/Maildir

if the mysql returns "newexample.com/info" for the mapping.

Will your db performance match your db growth?

First I would like to thank you for the answers.


lol, I am a little bit confused.

I have installed sendmail, not postfix.
I have configured sendmail, not postfix.
I am using sendmail, not postfix.

and now I saw that in the logs is written something about postfix.
I need to use sendmail, because I need some functions of this MTA.

Is there any way to change them?
I think this should solve my problem, because sendmail is configured and postfix not.

Maybe I will use Postfix in the future.

What function in sendmail do you need that cannot be done in postfix?

I used your code-snippet in the postfix main.cf and the error is away, but I don't receive the mail, because the rest of the server is configured for sendmail and nobody looks in this maildir.

I need sendmail, because my control panel now is in the 3rd version and uses a "configuration-bot" of the second-version of my control panel and this bot only writes configuration files for sendmail.

Maybe I can change it fast.

Where can I find my emails now?

My maillog now says this:

ug 20 02:58:43 server01 dovecot: POP3(hallo_sw-cluster_com): Disconnected: Logged out top=0/0, retr=0/0, del=0/0, size=0

What's going wrong?

Looks like your postfix is NOT compiled with mysql support
