We use authentication to send mail...

Postby Honnett » Tue Dec 19, 2006 2:34 pm

...how would MailCleaner act on this?

Is it transparent to this login procedure, or must I change my DNS info so our users attach directly to the mailserver but other mailservers don't?

MailCleaner won't do outgoing smtp authentification.
You can eventually add it if you want but you'll have to hack the code.
MailCleaner is aimed at incoming message filtering, and not as a all-in-one mail system.
My advice is to use your final mail server to take car of authentication and, if really needed, ask him to use MailCleaner as a smat host.

Oliver ment a smart host, i guess he made a typo.

A smart host is a server that will handle delivering all your outgoing mail for you.

I had this same question earlier, here are other options to solve it.

1. Set up a new A record called smtp.domain.com or something and have it point to another IP with port 25 open to your mailserver. This way users can use mail.domain.com for pop/IMAP etc, and smtp.domain.com for SMTP.

2. (I did this) Change your mailserver to listen on both port 25 and 587, I then had all POP/IMAP users change their client to send SMTP on 587.

Either way works, I just didnt have the available IP's to do 1 at the time.
