Dear Sirs,

I would like to get some information about SpamAssassin Mail Filter. How can I set Postfix mail server and SquirrelMail programms to send messages as Spam in a separate folder for spam messages as soon as we get them. And could you also tell me how I add th filters to sort messages in Squirrel Mail?

Best regards,

Vinokurov V. N.

You can use this guide here
You can edit options through webmin under mailscanner and spamassassin tabs.
You can alternative download spam plugins ( spam buttons, spamassassin, spamrule) from squirrelmail.org.
Also, usermin has already have spamassasin configuration.

Hello,

Thank you for the quick respond. it seems that i used to explain you the matter not so clear, but nevertheless my question is the following:

1.to my surprise there is no Message filter in the SquirrelMail. Recently you sent me the post with the instruction http://www.psych.ubc.ca/~dusko/sqrlantispm.html, where in paragraph Options Message filter was included, but in fact Squirrel Mail doesn't have this Message filer. But we have an intention to add it. That is why ask you to inform us how to add this option in the programm.

2. Squirrel Mail includes a set of plugins, they have already been instolled, but in fact they are not active. We tried to use file CONFIG.PHP of SQURRELmail, but unfortunately it failed. But also we couldn't use CONF.PL.

3. In SqurrelMail we would like to add one user with the name Mail, however the user under this name is already exist. So what shall we do in this circumstances?

Looking forward your feedback
Thank you for the helping hand
With warm regards from Russia)

If you take a look at /etc/passwd file you will see an entry
mail:x:8:12:mail:/:/bin/false
This entry cannot be deleted.
So you can't add a user mail, but you can add a user such as mailuser mailadm or even admin or whatever else you like.

Dear Sir,

I understood your previous message. Than I have the following question: How can I set the Postfix programme so It could sent the messages for Mailuser to another user.
and the second question; Can I set the Postfix so that the letters that are sent to a user who is not present at the system could be sent to another user?Can I sent the mail that was sent to a not registered user to a registered user?

So, we could avoid not allowance for creation of mail user to another user.
And one problem we faced when working with Squirrel Mail programme: it does't give us the apportunitye to attach files with Russian symbols. we tried to change default charset to utf-8 however it didn't help. Can you help us to solve this problem?

Best regards

Edit /etc/mail/aliases and add something like
Mailuser: Yourdesired user
Same thing for POSTMASTER by default root account take the massages or adeministrator user through my alias.
After ending edit /etc/mail/aliases do a
/usr/sbin/newaliases
postfix reload

Before attaching your attachment try to change the view encoding to your language (windows-1251 maybe? you know) to see what happened.
Try editting config.php of squirrelmail
$squirrelmail_default_language = 'en_US';
$default_charset = 'iso-8859-1';

Hi,

About attached files:

I did the following thing:
$squirrelmail_default_language = 'ru_RU';
$default_charset = 'UTF-8';

But in the office I have UBUNTU that have default chartset utf-8 too but nothing worked out. Maybe you have any ideas what to do??

Yours
Vinokurov V. I.

I meant user "mail". Can I add aliases to mail user?

mail user has no shell it's a system user, don't get mails.
Try changing $default_charset = 'UTF-8'; to russian appropriate encoding.

EDIT:
With settings bellow I have no issues with Greek characters, I believe Russian will work.
$squirrelmail_default_language = 'en_US.UTF-8';
$default_charset = 'UTF-8';

Hi,
1. Autorisation in SquirrelMail.
We used a comand netconfig - lcd with its parameters. But then we noticed there there were no clients at server ldap. We created new mail users at the server with the Interface of Webmin at the "Group and Users" devision. That is why our try to make a mail user at the server ldap by Webmin was not successfull.

We have a question: how we can create new users with LDAP server through the Webmin Interface? What steps then should we take?


We need the common enter for resorse of Samba both with the mail account.

Thank you
Vadim

Make a new install on another disk or machine or backup all your configs.
If you want to use ldap authentication with virtual users try installing egroupware-1.601 package, it will alter your authentication to ldap with virtual users only.
Your users you add was real local users. After you install egroupware do a
chown -R vmail.vmail /var/vmail
to ensure permissions are right, and continue the setup through web.
When you login to egroupware add users.
