question on using zmailer in a distributed environment
Howdy, sorry to be asking such basics question to the guru list but I
couldn't find out what I wanted in the list archive.
Okay, so we've got a bunch of workstations and a big honking server. We
want the server to be the only machine receiving mail and have users
access their mailboxes via IMAP. If mail gets sent to a user at their
workstation, we want the mail to be punted to the honking server. My guess
is that defining the following in SiteConfig for the workstations will
but it seems a bit overkill. I don't want sunsite to necessarily send out
all the mail, just receive it all.
Second question: I want as much as possible of the zmailer stuff to live
in our shared read-only /usr/local directory. Currently the setup looks
but I strongly suspect that some of these things really _need_ to be
local, not shared. Which ones, if any?
Penultimate question: We're moving from icky NFS to slightly less icky AFS
shortly. How well do zmailer and AFS coexist?
Final question: There's another machine on campus which is running zmailer
and has an interesting security hole. Commands run via the .forward file
mechanism are executed with root permission! I was able to get myself a
nice suidroot /bin/sh using my .forward file. Is this a misconfiguration
issue or a flaw in zmailer?
Thanks in advance for any answers.
