Help!

I have qmailtoaster on CentOS 4.2 and it has been running fine for several
months now.
I host several dozen domains and emails running,
All of a sudden today, I cannot send email outside my own server.

I looked at the RBLs and spamcop has me blacklisted.

I then removed all RBLs in my /var/qmail/control/blacklists.
I did the same for a backup server that also has qmailtoaster.

Now I tested my backup server and it sends and receives emails fine.

But my main email server with qmailtoaster can only receive emails but
cannot receive emails!

My main email server cannot send to yahoo, cannot send to google, cannot
send to my backup server which has RBLs removed in
/var/qmail/control/blacklists.

What could possibly be wrong with my qmailtoaster? How can I fix it? Which
logs to check?

check /var/log/qmail/send/current

If being block by RBLs List, are you using a dynamic internet connection? If yes, disconnect your Internet and reconnect, after it changes new IP, it should works well.

I checked /var/log/qmail/send/current and I do not see any activity that
says I was rejected by spamcop or the other RBLs.

I am on a fixed IP address 209.11.243.202.

I can send emails within my own server, with different domain names; but I
cannot send outside my server.

I operate a 2nd server also with qmailtoaster that still works fine.

Any other ideas?

Here is what I see in the log.
I send email using squirrelmail from ***@filipinowebservices.com (on the
server that has problems) to a new and working email at
***@fertilityhelp.org (on my backup server that is working).

As expected, no email is actually sent to those addresses.

But if I try to send to a domain within my server
***@filipinowebservices.com, it is sent.

I look at /smtp/current and it says:

@4000000043e7193a0dff4a44 tcpserver: status: 11/100
@4000000043e7193a0dff61b4 tcpserver: pid 1054 from 127.0.0.1

Help!

I have qmailtoaster on CentOS 4.2 and it has been running fine for several months now.
I host several dozen domains and emails running,
All of a sudden today, I cannot send email outside my own server.

I looked at the RBLs and spamcop has me blacklisted.

I then removed all RBLs in my /var/qmail/control/blacklists.
I did the same for a backup server that also has qmailtoaster.

Now I tested my backup server and it sends and receives emails fine.

But my main email server with qmailtoaster can only receive emails but cannot receive emails!

My main email server cannot send to yahoo, cannot send to google, cannot send to my backup server which has RBLs removed in /var/qmail/control/blacklists.

What could possibly be wrong with my qmailtoaster? How can I fix it? Which logs to check?

Newbie here again, followed your suggestion:

# qmailctl queue
messages in queue: 40715
messages in queue but not yet preprocessed: 0

Now I see it. 40,715 messages. What is wrong? What must I do?
Sorry, I am now officially in a bit of panic.

Don't worry, it will send out by now....

You should see send log file

I have a client also, where the company will send out approx 100mails in 1 hour. I modified the concurrencyoutgoing file to be higher, so that it will send faster.

but, I will advice you jot down the default value, when every mails finished sending, put it back default value.

After modified, please restart server. If stop qmail, will take sometime, so restart is the best

Help!

I have qmailtoaster on CentOS 4.2 and it has been running fine for several months now.
I host several dozen domains and emails running,
All of a sudden today, I cannot send email outside my own server.

I looked at the RBLs and spamcop has me blacklisted.

I then removed all RBLs in my /var/qmail/control/blacklists.
I did the same for a backup server that also has qmailtoaster.

Now I tested my backup server and it sends and receives emails fine.

But my main email server with qmailtoaster can only receive emails but cannot receive emails!

My main email server cannot send to yahoo, cannot send to google, cannot send to my backup server which has RBLs removed in /var/qmail/control/blacklists.

What could possibly be wrong with my qmailtoaster? How can I fix it? Which logs to check?

Let's see. If I follow this, your main mail server got black listed,
right? I did a check at DNSStuff.com, and see that you were listed here:
http://psbl.surriel.com/listing?ip=209.11.243.202
http://www.spamcop.net/bl.shtml?209.11.243.202
Which means that you are listed as a spammer. Since the second link is
SpamCop (one that almost every one uses) that would explain why your
mail cannot make it out of your domain. You need to find out who was
spamming, remove them from your server, and on the SpamCop link I sent
they have instructions on how to remove yourself from their list. This
is one of the risks of hosting other people's websites/email. Hope you
charge them enough to make up for the aggravation!
You could always swing all of your email accounts to another server with
a different IP in the meantime. But you will still need to investigate
why you were listed as a spammer, or your new IP will just get
blacklisted, and on and on.
That will also be why you have 3000+ emails in your queue. Most servers
will check against SpamCop (or one of the many others), and since you're
listed as a spammer, they drop connection on you. So your email sits in
the queue, until your /var/qmail/control/queuelifetime is exceeded.
Sorry about your bad luck, and hopefully that helps some.

Thank you to all for your guidance,

I started out yesterday with 40,000+ in queue.
Now I am down to 542.

For the benefit of other qmailtoaster fans...

This is my analysis of the problem:
- I got a call from a customer that emails are not being sent to yahoo, but
within their company it works.
- I checked and indeed confirmed this using another email server I also
operate.
- I asked help here on the qmail toaster mailing list
- I turned off the firewall, nope, that's not it.
- Email receiving is fine.
- Clue from the *Gabriel Lai Yong Shern*: qmailctl queue
- Found out I've got 40,000+ in the queue
- They are mostle from a very large message board I host which holds 60,000+
members. The admin just sent a party invitation to everyone in the board.
- Analysis from Jake Vickers regarding SPAM, I also checked with the RBL
evidence that I have an old insecure feedback form in php.

What I did to help solve this problem:
- I fixed the feedback forms by updating them to the latest ones with
anti-spam
- I increased the /var/qmail/control/concurrencyremote setting from 60 to
120
- I did: qmailctl doqueue to speed up delivery
- I coordinated with the large messageboard admin to fix his part and not
send mail for a while
- Now after more than 24 hours, I tweaked queuelifetime from 24 hours to 4
hours just to help empty the queue.
- Now I am down to 500+ in the queue, I will reset back the queuelifetime

What do you think guys? Anything I missed?
Will update you on final resolution of this problem.

Let's see. If I follow this, your main mail server got black listed,
http://psbl.surriel.com/listing?ip=209.11.243.202
http://www.spamcop.net/bl.shtml?209.11.243.202
Which means that you are listed as a spammer. Since the second link is
SpamCop (one that almost every one uses) that would explain why your
mail cannot make it out of your domain. You need to find out who was
spamming, remove them from your server, and on the SpamCop link I sent
they have instructions on how to remove yourself from their list. This
is one of the risks of hosting other people's websites/email. Hope you
charge them enough to make up for the aggravation!
You could always swing all of your email accounts to another server with
a different IP in the meantime. But you will still need to investigate
why you were listed as a spammer, or your new IP will just get
blacklisted, and on and on.
That will also be why you have 3000+ emails in your queue. Most servers
will check against SpamCop (or one of the many others), and since you're
listed as a spammer, they drop connection on you. So your email sits in
the queue, until your /var/qmail/control/queuelifetime is exceeded.
Sorry about your bad luck, and hopefully that helps some.

Thank you to all for your guidance,
I started out yesterday with 40,000+ in queue.
Now I am down to 542.
Sounds like you have the problem pretty much fixed. From what I
understand, the process to get off of SpamCop can take a while, though.
I usually leave the queuelifetime at 2.5 hours, just so that if there
was a typo the user can get their email back in enough time to send it
again that day. I only bump it up when there is a problem, and I keep it
at 3 days on my backup MX and bump that to 5 days when there is a problem.

I did increase the value of concurrencyremote so that it won't stay in the server too long, because the default value is 60.

What are others opinions on changing the value of concurrency??

Thank you to all for your guidance,

I started out yesterday with 40,000+ in queue.
Now I am down to 542.

For the benefit of other qmailtoaster fans...

This is my analysis of the problem:
- I got a call from a customer that emails are not being sent to yahoo, but within their company it works.
- I checked and indeed confirmed this using another email server I also operate.
- I asked help here on the qmail toaster mailing list
- I turned off the firewall, nope, that's not it.
- Email receiving is fine.
- Clue from the Gabriel Lai Yong Shern: qmailctl queue
- Found out I've got 40,000+ in the queue
- They are mostle from a very large message board I host which holds 60,000+ members. The admin just sent a party invitation to everyone in the board.
- Analysis from Jake Vickers regarding SPAM, I also checked with the RBL evidence that I have an old insecure feedback form in php.

What I did to help solve this problem:
- I fixed the feedback forms by updating them to the latest ones with anti-spam
- I increased the /var/qmail/control/concurrencyremote setting from 60 to 120
- I did: qmailctl doqueue to speed up delivery
- I coordinated with the large messageboard admin to fix his part and not send mail for a while
- Now after more than 24 hours, I tweaked queuelifetime from 24 hours to 4 hours just to help empty the queue.
- Now I am down to 500+ in the queue, I will reset back the queuelifetime maybe to 12 hours.

Hi Gabriel!

Thanks for your reply, here I send my comments...

1) I want to replace a sendmail server by Qmail,
today the e-mail services works this form

e-mail
in ---> Sendmail --> Exchange 5.5 --> Outlook
(alias)

where in sendmail server, we have a big list of alias
to e-mail account to exchange server.

For example:

psilva: ***@principal-domain.com

The mailbox ***@principal-domain.com is in
Exchange Server 5.5


2) The next step for to replace Sendmail server is
to redirect all the e-mail traffic by iptables to
Qmail server, only for make a several tests before
the change.

That's the architecture for make testing

e-mail
in ---> Firewall --> Qmail --> Exchange --> Outlook
(redirect
e-mail
traffic)



I don't want to drop sendmail service yet, because
if there are troubles, I can change quickly to my old
server Sendmail, modify the iptable rule in the
firewall, (Rollback all!)


3) You said:

"Let's say, if your principal-domain.com is your
sendmail box, you would like to forward every client's
emails to qmail box? Replace exchange server?"

My comment is:

I want to forward every client's email to Exchange
server, I don't want forward to qmail box..., as you
see in 2) these architecture i want to use before
to replace sendmail by qmail...

4) I'm agree with you, I'll want to replace the
Exhange
server, but I can't for bussiness rules, all of
our user must to use Exchange mailbox.

Conlusion
---------

As you can see, I have qmailtoaster installed and
working, but when I redirect all the e-mail traffic
toward qmail server, I have troubles...FastForward
in qmail server dosen't works.. I don't know why...


If you can see the log file, the messages are:

-------------START--------------------------------

Hi Pablo,


The problem is, when I send an e-mail to
[EMAIL PROTECTED]
Let me clarify a few queries I have after reading your
email. principal-domain.com is your sendmail box?

Let's say, if your principal-domain.com is your
sendmail box, you would like to forward every client's
emails to qmail box? Replace exchange server?

If you would like to replace exchange server with
Qmail toaster, 1st, every client's email address must
be in Qmail box, from sendmail, you can forward all
emails to Qmail box, and qmail will separate every
emails to every specific emails.

I think, you don't have to have 2 email server, just
use Qmail as a centralized email server will be a good
solution too.

What do you think?

Please correct me.

Gab

Hi!

I'm very newbie administrator with qmailtoaster.

I've installed by http://jakev.com/qmail/ script
into my
CENTOS 4.2 server.

My qmailtoaster configuration is
http://pastebin.com/529358

I'm testing my qmailtoaster server for this
moment,
I redirect
the e-mail traffic from my linux router to my
qmailtoaster server
by iptables

-A PREROUTING -d 200.55.198.5 -i eth0 -p tcp -m
tcp
--dport 25 -j DNAT --to-destination
10.100.104.141:25

Where 200.55.198.5 is my internet address and
bypass all
the traffic to internal qmailtoaster server
10.100.104.141

My organization use actually sendmail as
principal
e-mail
server and Microsoft exchange 5.5 as internal
server.

The sendmail server has a big alias list where
the
users are:

user: [EMAIL PROTECTED]

When I installed qmailtoaster, also compiled
fastforward
for to work with this alias file, so I get
aliases.cdb
file
generated by /var/qmail/bin/newaliases

The MX register in internal DNS is

principal-domain.com IN MX 0
adonis.pricipal-domain.com

The problem is, when I send an e-mail to

[EMAIL PROTECTED]

it's in the queue and the log file show me this
information:

/var/log/qmail/smtp/current

Hello Pablo,

Are you trying to setup a relay server to Exchange Server? I have setup a
qmail box for my client as relay server. Meaning that every incoming &
outgoing will go through qmail server. In fact, there will be no email
accounts in qmail server, it just do email scanning & spamming only. After
scanning, it will forward it back to Exchange Server.

In this case, Exchange will be a safe server at the back, frontend that's
fighting spam and viruses will be Qmail box.

My client has been running this method for about 3 months, till now, no
problem being face by them.

You don't really need an alias in Qmail I think.

What will be your objective to setup Qmail box to sit in front of Exchange?

Gabriel

Hi Again!

Yes, the principal objective is to set a front
end server (qmail), and back end server exchange
server, if you ask for this why?, sorry bussiness
rules.

I've tryed to configurate qmail server for
fastforward, but someting is wrong...

I prefer to make a slow change, I want to therefore
redirect the e-mail traffic in firewall... When the
change this ready one, then I put qmail like principal
server...

But now... what's the next?... I'm stop for these
troubles...

Thanks in Advance!

Hello....

Qmail can be as a front end server. Firewall will do some port forwarding to qmail... after scanning, qmail will forward emails to Exchange.

What I've done is as below:

1) Install Qmail packages, make sure every packages are properly installed.
2) modify /var/qmail/control/rcpthost to allow your domain to comes in
3) Allow relaying from your Exchange Server ( Users send mails to Exchange, Exchange forward to Qmail then deliver to the World)
- edit /etc/tcprules.d/tcp.smtp, add a line like [exchange ip]:allow,RELAYCLIENT=""
then run qmailctl cdb to reload
4) When Qmail receive all email for scanning, you must forward the mails to Exchange
- edit /var/qmail/control/smtproutes add in your Exchange IP and port eg: [exchangeip:25]

** Please don't add any virtual domain with vqadmin. Don't add any domains & alias domains.

In Exchange, forward your DNS to your qmail box, then every email will be forward to qmail for scanning, then qmail will deliver to the world.

Don't forget to forward all incoming mails from port 25 in firewall to qmail box.

For more easier, you may use Webmin to configure Qmail in GUI www.webmin.com

That's all about the config. Let us know the result.

You can see through /var/log/qmail/smtp/current & /var/log/qmail/send/current or /var/log/maillog

Hi Again!

Thanks for your help, I have some doubts with your
configuration, because our e-mail configuration is
legacy...

Well, there we go:

1) You said

"modify /var/qmail/control/rcpthost to allow
your domain to comes in"

My comment is

I must to add only my principal-domain.com there?

What happens with the following files?, I should
configurate those files this way?

- me hostname.principal-domain.com
- defaulthost pincipal-domain.com
- defaultdomain principal-domain.com
- locals principal-domain.com
hostname.principal-domain.com

others-hostnames.principal-domain.com

- rcpthosts principal-domain.com

2) You said

"** Please don't add any virtual domain with
vqadmin.
Don't add any domains & alias domains."

My comment is:

I don't understand which configuration, I can't to
do, for example domains & alias domains ...which files
?

3) Is necessary to reuse the sendmail alias file,
because the legacy configuration is:

user: ***@other-domain.com

For example, if you send an e-mail to

***@principal-domain.com and arrive to sendmail
server, the alias file translate to
***@other-domain.com and forward to Exchange
Server...

ok, it's crazy but there are bussiness rules....

The ip of other-domain.com match with the Exchange
Server ip.

So, I think that (at moment) must to use
FastForward...

Thanks in advance for your comments...

Hello Pablo,

I modified /var/qmail/control/rcpthost only.. Add your principal domain in
there. whatever emails end with *@principal-domain.com will allow to enter
into Qmail box.

In this case, your company objective is just to use Qmail box as scanning
machine for viruses & spam. You don't need any domain aliase file or config.

Qmail box must have an IP that's different with Exchange Server. Exchange
server will be a safe backend email server as I said in previous email.

Modified /var/qmail/control/smtproutes is a must because every emails coming
from the internet will enter into your Qmail box, then smtproutes config
will know that these emails must forward to Exchange Server, that's why you
must add smtproutes

/etc/tcp.d/tcp.rules must be add as well so that when any users in your
company send emails, it will be seats in Exchange Server. Exchange Server
has a configuration, it's call DNS, modify the Deliver Directly to your
Qmail box.

Conclusion, every emails in & out will be scanned.

I did increase the value of concurrencyremote so
that it won't stay in the server too long, because
the default value is 60.
What are others opinions on changing the value of
concurrency??

Subject: Re: [qmailtoaster] ***SPAM*** Help!
Cannot send email outside my own server!
Thank you to all for your guidance,
I started out yesterday with 40,000+ in queue.
Now I am down to 542.
For the benefit of other qmailtoaster fans...
- I got a call from a customer that emails are not
being sent to yahoo, but within their company it
works.
- I checked and indeed confirmed this using
another email server I also operate.
- I asked help here on the qmail toaster mailing
list
- I turned off the firewall, nope, that's not it.
- Email receiving is fine.
- Clue from the Gabriel Lai Yong Shern: qmailctl
queue
- Found out I've got 40,000+ in the queue
- They are mostle from a very large message board
I host which holds 60,000+ members. The admin just
sent a party invitation to everyone in the board.
- Analysis from Jake Vickers regarding SPAM, I
also checked with the RBL evidence that I have an
old insecure feedback form in php.
- I fixed the feedback forms by updating them to
the latest ones with anti-spam
- I increased the
/var/qmail/control/concurrencyremote setting from 60
to 120
- I did: qmailctl doqueue to speed up delivery
- I coordinated with the large messageboard admin
to fix his part and not send mail for a while
- Now after more than 24 hours, I tweaked
queuelifetime from 24 hours to 4 hours just to help
empty the queue.
- Now I am down to 500+ in the queue, I will reset
back the queuelifetime maybe to 12 hours.
What do you think guys? Anything I missed?
Will update you on final resolution of this
problem.
*Don't worry, it will send out by now....*
**
*You should see send log file*
**
*I have a client also, where the company will
send out approx 100mails
in 1 hour. I modified the concurrencyoutgoing
file to be higher, so
that it will send faster.*
**
*but, I will advice you jot down the default
value, when every mails
finished sending, put it back default value. *
**
*After modified, please restart server. If
stop qmail, will take
sometime, so restart is the best*
Let's see. If I follow this, your main mail
server got black listed,
right? I did a check at DNSStuff.com, and see
http://psbl.surriel.com/listing?ip=209.11.243.202
http://www.spamcop.net/bl.shtml?209.11.243.202
Which means that you are listed as a spammer.
Since the second link is
SpamCop (one that almost every one uses) that
would explain why your
mail cannot make it out of your domain. You need
to find out who was
spamming, remove them from your server, and on
the SpamCop link I sent
they have instructions on how to remove yourself
from their list. This
is one of the risks of hosting other people's
websites/email. Hope you
charge them enough to make up for the
aggravation!
You could always swing all of your email
accounts to another server with
a different IP in the meantime. But you will
still need to investigate
why you were listed as a spammer, or your new IP
will just get
blacklisted, and on and on.
That will also be why you have 3000+ emails in
your queue. Most servers
will check against SpamCop (or one of the many
others), and since you're
listed as a spammer, they drop connection on
you. So your email sits in
the queue, until your
/var/qmail/control/queuelifetime is exceeded.
Sorry about your bad luck, and hopefully that
helps some.

Newbie here again, followed your suggestion:

# qmailctl queue
messages in queue: 40715
messages in queue but not yet preprocessed: 0

Now I see it. 40,715 messages. What is wrong? What must I do?
Sorry, I am now officially in a bit of panic.

I send email from ***@filipinowebservices.com to my yahoo, gmail and fertilithelp.org (on a backup server) and I get nothing.

But if I send it to ***@filipinowebservices.com or ***@casimero.com which resides in the same server, I get the email.

Help.

Here is what I see in the log.
I send email using squirrelmail from ***@filipinowebservices.com (on the server that has problems) to a new and working email at ***@fertilityhelp.org (on my backup server that is working).

As expected, no email is actually sent to those addresses.

But if I try to send to a domain within my server ***@filipinowebservices.com , it is sent.

I look at /smtp/current and it says:

@4000000043e7193a0dff4a44 tcpserver: status: 11/100
@4000000043e7193a0dff61b4 tcpserver: pid 1054 from 127.0.0.1

Thanks for sticking with me.

I still need your help....

I checked /var/log/qmail/send/current and I do not see any activity that says I was rejected by spamcop or the other RBLs.

I am on a fixed IP address 209.11.243.202.

I can send emails within my own server, with different domain names; but I cannot send outside my server.

I operate a 2nd server also with qmailtoaster that still works fine.

Any other ideas?

If being block by RBLs List, are you using a dynamic internet connection? If yes, disconnect your Internet and reconnect, after it changes new IP, it should works well.

Help!

I have qmailtoaster on CentOS 4.2 and it has been running fine for several months now.
I host several dozen domains and emails running,
All of a sudden today, I cannot send email outside my own server.

I looked at the RBLs and spamcop has me blacklisted.

I then removed all RBLs in my /var/qmail/control/blacklists.
I did the same for a backup server that also has qmailtoaster.

Now I tested my backup server and it sends and receives emails fine.

But my main email server with qmailtoaster can only receive emails but cannot receive emails!

My main email server cannot send to yahoo, cannot send to google, cannot send to my backup server which has RBLs removed in /var/qmail/control/blacklists.

What could possibly be wrong with my qmailtoaster? How can I fix it? Which logs to check?
