However after countless hours on Google to find a solution they all
require patching which according to lazy installer is not required as it
is patched already.
What do I need to add to file tcp.smtp to only allow SMTP AUTH only &
localhost only? I have tried several combo's like
:allow,SMTPAUTH="" and several others to no avail and also run tcprules
to add the new cdb file, ideally a solution to use the pop3 user details
would be best.
Including above I know it is doing authenticating when I set it a test
account using smtp auth using pop3 details in Outlook Express because I
run recordio on ...bin/qmail-smtp and all that's working. However I ONLY
want to allow SMTP AUTHed users to send mail (including localhost) and
block all other SMTP.
This is not happening as its allowing me to just relay everything through
our server at the moment. We have been blacklisted before when we used to
use sendmail and it was a nightmare to get off the blacklists and want to
avoid that at all costs
Any help would be greatly appreciated, hope you can help.
Relaying is usually controlled by the tcp.smtp file using the RELAYCLIENT
To only allow localhost to relay and require all other IPs to
use smtp auth you could put this one line in your tcp.smtp file
Then rebuild your tcp.smtp.cdb file using tcprules.
