Postfix troubles

Post by Bugo »

Hi there!

I've got some serious trouble with postfix.

What I'm trying to do:
Postfix with SMTP-Autentifcation, Multidomain, accepting from every IP.

My Setup: rootDS account with [netclusive], running Fedora Core 4.

After using a howto from the HowToForge, which got me nowhere, I started looking for another one, that was easier to understand:
http://www.pl-forum.de/berichte/postfix-smtp-auth.html

I didn't use the installation as suggested, though. I installed the rpms with yum.

But I used the config as suggested, which is:
main.cf:
----------

Code: Select all

 # The queue_directory specifies the location of the Postfix queue.
queue_directory = /var/spool/postfix
# The command_directory parameter specifies the location of all
# postXXX commands.
command_directory = /usr/sbin
# The daemon_directory parameter specifies the location of all Postfix
# daemon programs
daemon_directory = /usr/libexec/postfix
# The mail_owner parameter specifies the owner of the Postfix queue
# and of most Postfix daemon processes. Specify the name of a user
# account THAT DOES NOT SHARE ITS USER OR GROUP ID WITH OTHER ACCOUNTS
# AND THAT OWNS NO OTHER FILES OR PROCESSES ON THE SYSTEM.
mail_owner = postfix
# The myhostname parameter specifies the internet hostname of this
# mail system.
myhostname = mail.sportreferat.at
# The mydomain parameter specifies the local internet domain name.
mydomain = sportreferat.at
# The myorigin parameter specifies the domain that locally-posted
# mail appears to come from.
myorigin = $mydomain
# The inet_interfaces parameter specifies the network interface
# addresses that this mail system receives mail on.
inet_interfaces = $myhostname
# inet_interfaces = all # Wenn der Mailserver für mehrere Domains
#zuständig sein soll
# The mydestination parameter specifies the list of domains that this
# machine considers itself the final destination for.
mydestination = $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain, $mydomain
# The mynetworks parameter specifies the list of "trusted"
#SMTP
# clients that have more privileges than "strangers".
#
# In particular, "trusted" SMTP clients are allowed to relay
#mail
# through Postfix.
# Hier kann man dann auch um das interne Netzwerk erweitern.
# So wie es hier ist braucht jeder Client ein Passwort. Ist aber gut zum
#Testen.
# Du kannst auch noch etwas wie 192.168.40.0/24 einfügen. Dann dürfen alle
#Rechner
#aus
# diesem Netzwerk auch Mails ohne Passwort versenden.
mynetworks = 127.0.0.0/8

# will relay mail from, or what destinations this system will relay
# mail to.

I can't send or receive mail and when I try to connect remotely via telnet on port 25, I get a connection refused although the firewall is open as hell for testing reasons. When trying to connect locally with telnet from the console, I get a connection, but no server response.

Postfix is running, though:

Unfortunately: Setting up a super-duper Mailserver was always on our Werkstatt TODO list, but we haven't got one until today (Well, that's not exactly true: Gil's working on setting one up - but I'm not sure about it's status)

Long story short:
Maybe Gil can help! :)

for now I can only tell you to forget the connections from outside until the direct (localhost) connection works!

- When you connected locally, have you tried to input something? Maybe your server doesn't say hello before you do! (try: "HELO mydomain.com" for example)
- AND: What do the logs say? Is the server starting up without problems? Because seeing the process running doesn't mean it's actually made it beyond reading the config!

Actually, I first asked Gil and he chided me for not using the forums as I should do. :-) He's already looking into it.

I will post the logs a little later and will tell you the results of my experiments...

...can't connect to server locally any more. didn't do anything since yesterday though...

Code: Select all

[root@v985 ~]# telnet mail.sportreferat.at 25
Trying 127.0.0.1...
telnet: connect to address 127.0.0.1: Connection refused
[root@v985 ~]# telnet localhost 25
Trying 127.0.0.1...
telnet: connect to address 127.0.0.1: Connection refused
[root@v985 ~]#
Logs show nothing. Neither in var/log/messages nor in /var/log/maillog. The first just shows that I logged onto the server as user *whatever* and the second just shows my Outlook connecting to the pop3.

Theres definitly stuff missing in this config file of yours. I will just strip my config from comments and post it... its not done by any means yet, but it works ;)

Might take a while, i have to do work and stuff, too ;)

I really can't see how this config you pasted above could ever work. Of course, i did not read the full 2000 pages manuals on sendmail, procmail, postfix and whatever, so i might be wrong. But this (see code window) for example makes no sense...

Code: Select all

# The inet_interfaces parameter specifies the network interface
# addresses that this mail system receives mail on.
inet_interfaces = $myhostname
Okay... so... what has an interface to do with a hostname... besides nothing. Maybe it does some weird magic, but i dont think so.

Our Mailserver has several interfaces (eth0, eth1, eth[...], wlan0, ppp0), and thus i have 'inet_interfaces = all' there.

As you sure noticed, none of my interfaces is named like a domain... so probably yours are not either. For testing, put 'all' instead of $myhostname. Can you dump me a 'ifconfig' here as well, please?

And here is something else that puzzles me:

Code: Select all

mynetworks = 127.0.0.0/8
relay_domains = $mydomain
Here, the 'mynetworks' entry looks like ... well... very wrong for me. In this case, the only network the server would allow e-mail from would be the loopback, unless you REALLY have a network 127.0.0.* ..

Have to think about this, continue in a bit....

Perl läuft auf 99.9%??? Warum? Ich starte mal den Rechner neu. Da lief jetzt sogar SSH nur mehr sehr laggy. Geschweige denn Webmin. Und vor allem scheint der Prozess schon verdammt lange zu laufen.

Das mit den Interfaces hört sich extrem vernünftig an. In der Config-file, die ich vorher hatte, war da auch "all". Nachdem das Ding ja dann mit SMTP-AUTH abgesichert werden soll, könnte ich ja als mynetworks 0.0.0.0 nehmen, oder? 0.0.0.0/??

EDIT: eh, sorry, will translate it later, if possible. Was just so surprised that my first thoughts were in good old German.

Try using 'lsof | grep perl' - this should show you all open files that are in use by perl.

You can also try to stop one service after another... and if you stop a specific service, and perl dies with it, then you have your evil bastardo.

As for the ifconfig... now, thats some funny ip's there. Probably ^rooker has seen that kind of network so far.

And yeah, as you do smtp auth anyway, you can use all on both interfaces. Check the manpage for postfix or somet tutorial what the correct syntax is to feed it all IP's... i kinda doubt its 0.0.0.0/0, even tho its possible.

strange... now the process is gone. I can connect to the server normally:

I will have to check the CRON jobs.

btw: Gil, hope you didn't forget, that I'm coming to your Kuhdorf on sunday...

ok, the following cron jobs are being done:
/etc/cron.daily/makewhatis.cron
/etc/cron.daily/logrotate
/etc/cron.daily/slocate.cron
/etc/cron.daily/rpm
/etc/cron.daily/tmpwatch
/etc/cron.daily/yum.cron
/etc/cron.daily/apt.cron
/etc/cron.daily/00webalizer
/etc/cron.weekly/makewhatis.cron
/etc/cron.weekly/yum.cron

And I can't see what would have triggered perl. And the interesting thing is that the weekly cron jobs are being tun on sunday and the daily at 1:38 am in the morning. Hmmm... When I noticed the troubles it was like 3 pm in the afternoon on a wednesday

so, changes the inet_interfaces to "all", restarted the server, still no luck. tried to send mail from localhost to a user on localhost:

Code: Select all

[root@v985 ~]# mail stefan
Subject: testmail von localhost
dfsdfsdf
.
Cc:
[root@v985 ~]#
But that didn't go anywhere and it isn't even in the Mail Queue.

changing the $mynetworks to 0.0.0.0 doesn't seem such a good idea anymore, as it seems to be the addresses, that can send mail without authentification. And that should remain to be the localhost for the cases when php scripts send mail.

Code: Select all

# The mynetworks parameter specifies the list of "trusted"
#SMTP
# clients that have more privileges than "strangers".
#
# In particular, "trusted" SMTP clients are allowed to relay
#mail
# through Postfix.
# Hier kann man dann auch um das interne Netzwerk erweitern.
# So wie es hier ist braucht jeder Client ein Passwort. Ist aber gut zum
#Testen.
# Du kannst auch noch etwas wie 192.168.40.0/24 einfügen. Dann dürfen alle
#Rechner
#aus
# diesem Netzwerk auch Mails ohne Passwort versenden.
mynetworks = 127.0.0.0/8

reset the server to the default image and noticed they had sendmail working with SMTP-auth. Using that now.
