Hi everybody, I am currently running a server with about 80 domains and about 30 users. The server runs qmail+QMAILQUEUE+SMTP-AUTH+TARPIT, vmailmgr, daemontools, dnscache, Squirrelmail 1.4, qmail-pop3d, courier-imap, and sslwrap for POP3 and IMAP. I also have Spamassassin and F-Prot included via Qmail-Scanner. I additionally have several 'script' aliases (for example sending a mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" will cause a specific script to be executed as the user who owns 'domain.foo', where "XYZ" counts as a kind of password for this trigger).
Most users have several domains which I just created as aliases in the qmail configuration. I have now been hit hard by spammers (some idiot spammer has been using my domains as Return-Path for a week and I get about 20.000 "Undeliverable", "Please confirm" and "YOU F*CKING SPAMMER!11!!" mails a day(!). I want my users to be able to use TMDA for their domains and I would like a user-friendly interface for this. Now, using vmailmgr, I get the impression that most of the add-ons that are desinged for virtual users are made for vpopmail. qmailadmin for example. Also, I get the impression that vpopmail is much more widely used. So: - Am I correct? Is it a good idea to switch to vpopmail? - Can I use vpopmail and still have my users read their mail with 'mutt' locally if they want? Some of the users have SSH access. I understand all mail will be handled by the 'vpopmail' user, that might present a problem. - Does vpopmail allow some domains to be excluded and just be forwarded to eg. /home/jens/Maildir/? (I don't need my own domains to be split up - I just use a couple .qmail files for @jensbenecke.de). - Is there a package of vpopmail that does not put everything in the vpopmail home directory? I have /home mounted 'noexec,nosuid,nodev' (for security) and I'm not about to change that. Binaries go in /usr/local/bin or somewhere IMHO ... Thank you! -- Jens Benecke ([EMAIL PROTECTED])
