After upgrading our Z-mailer installation to the latest 2.99.51pre2 at
a couple of different installations, some questions have come up. First,
I wonder what the following message appearing in /var/log/mail/scheduler
Resyncing file "T/132957-22096" (ino=132957) .. in processing db
It appeared repeatedly until making a more than 500 Megabyte log file,
filling up the disk. It only happened on one installation, a Debian
'hamm' system with libc6 2.0.6. Is it an indication something is wrong
or should I shut off that message and ignore it?
My other questions have to do with relay protection. With the Z-mailer
upgrade, I finally really got around to tightening up our relay protection.
It worked fine until the case of an employee using an outside ISP had
her mail client set to use our SMTP server to send out all her mail. Of
course, I know the real answer is to find out that ISP's SMTP gateway and
tell her to use that. But, in the meanwhile, would it be possible to
do something like:
email@example.com relaycustomer +
in smtp-policy.src to allow only that user to use us for a relay? I
tried, but to no avail.
An alternative I was considering, since I found out this user's mail client
is M$ Outlook Express, is to try using the new authenticated SMTP method.
Once authentication successful, I trust that arbitrary relaying is
allowed? Anyway, I couldn't get it to work. I enabled
entries in 'smtpserver.conf' but the authentication always fails when
sending with an Outlook Express client here:
10726IOUBr EHLO press226187
10726IOUBw 250-press.uchicago.edu expected "EHLO press-187.uchicago.edu"
10726IOUBw 250-SIZE 0
10726IOUBw 250-X-RCPTLIMIT 10000
10726IOUBw 250-AUTH LOGIN
10726IOUBw 250 HELP

10726IOUBw 334 VXNlcm5hbWU6
10726IOUBw 334 UGFzc3dvcmQ6
10726IOUBw 535 Authentication failed.
Any ideas there?
