Postscreen Plugin Documentation

Plugin allows to use Postscreen with Postfix on i-MSCP.

The Postfix Postscreen daemon provides additional protection against mail server overload. One Postscreen process handles multiple inbound SMTP connections, and decides which clients may talk to a Postfix SMTP server process. By keeping spambots away, Postscreen leaves more SMTP server processes available for legitimate clients, and delays the onset of server overload conditions.

Attention

Please read the Postfix Postscreen Howto before installing this plugin.

If you use this Plugin your MUA clients should not submit mail via SMTP service on TCP port 25 because that is used for the Postscreen daemon with all the checks.

Instead your MUA clients should submit mails via SUBMISSION service on TCP port 587 or via SMTPS service on TCP port 465 which both require client authentication.

Requirements

  • i-MSCP versions >= 1.2.3
  • Postfix version >= 2.8
