Sendmail + Greylisting + SpamAssassin

Post by dougp23 » 2008/04/23 13:47:03

I am running a sendmail server on CentOS 4.4.

I use SpamAssassin to get a lot of spam, but want to enable greylisting.

Can someone show me a sample file that incorporates both greylisting and spamassassin?

My portion of for SpamAssassin looks like this right now:

# Input mail filters
O InputMailFilters=spamassassin

# Milter options
#O Milter.LogLevel
O Milter.macros.connect=j, _, {daemon_name}, {if_name}, {if_addr}
O Milter.macros.helo={tls_version}, {cipher}, {cipher_bits}, {cert_subject},
O Milter.macros.envfrom=i, {auth_type}, {auth_authen}, {auth_ssf},
{auth_author}, {mail_mailer}, {mail_host}, {mail_addr}
O Milter.macros.envrcpt={rcpt_mailer}, {rcpt_host}, {rcpt_addr}
O Milter.macros.eom={msg_id}

I found one writeup that looks close, but seems to ignore the InputMailFilters line. Here it is:

define(`confMILTER_MACROS_CONNECT', `j, {if_addr}')
define(`confMILTER_MACROS_HELO', `{verify}, {cert_subject}')
define(`confMILTER_MACROS_ENVFROM', `i, {auth_authen}')
INPUT_MAIL_FILTER(`spamassassin', `S=local:/var/run/spamass-milter/spamass-milter.sock, F=,T=C:15m;S:4m;R:4m;E:10m')dnl

Any ideas anyone?

Sendmail + Greylisting + SpamAssassin

This is what I use in /etc/mail/

define(`_FFR_MILTER', `1')dnl
dnl --- Milter-Greylist -----------------------------------------------
dnl See /usr/share/doc for the milter-greylist documentation.
define(`confMILTER_MACROS_CONNECT', `j, {if_addr}')
dnl This makes it bypass greylisting for users that use STARTTLS with a
dnl client certificate
define(`confMILTER_MACROS_HELO', `{verify}, {cert_subject}')
dnl This makes it bypass greylisting for users who have SMTP AUTHed
define(`confMILTER_MACROS_ENVFROM', `i, {auth_authen}')
dnl This lets you do fancy greylisting using the WHITE value in access.db
define(`confMILTER_MACROS_ENVRCPT', `{greylist}')
dnl #

Hi all,

We are running Centos 4.7 and started having trouble with milter-greylist. Here is the startup error

Dec 9 14:28:59 neptune sendmail[28471]: mB93Sw3d028471: Milter (greylist): local socket name /var/lib/milter-greylist/run/milter-greylist.sock unsafe
Dec 9 14:28:59 neptune sendmail[28471]: mB93Sw3d028471: Milter (greylist): to error state

Here is our
INPUT_MAIL_FILTER(`greylist',`S=local:/var/lib/milter-greylist/run/milter-greylist.sock, F=, T=S:1m;R:1m')dnl
define(`confMILTER_MACROS_CONNECT', `j, {if_addr}')
define(`confMILTER_MACROS_HELO', `{verify}, {cert_subject}')
define(`confMILTER_MACROS_ENVFROM', `i, {auth_authen}')
define(`confMILTER_MACROS_ENVRCPT', `{greylist}')dnl

# ls -Flags /var/milter-greylist
total 24

8 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root 6 Dec 12 18:15*
0 srwxr-xr-x 1 smmsp 0 Dec 13 13:07 milter-greylist.sock=

Can anyone help?
