Thank you all for your replies.
I followed the discussion on why this happening and I understand the logic.
But since Outlook is so spread among corporate users worldwide, shouldn't
mailman have its own workaround? Just like the web coders did for IE*
shortcomings all these years.
I got mimedefang to work but it was not easy at all. There is hardly any
cheat sheets out there for such combination.
OS: Centos 5.6
Postfix: 2.7.3 I had to upgrade from distribution's 2.3
smtpd_milters = unix:/var/spool/MIMEDefang/mimedefang.sock
milter_default_action = accept
milter_protocol = 3
I had to run as usr postfix because of permission problems :
postfix/smtpd: warning: connect to Milter service
unix:/var/spool/MIMEDefang/mimedefang.sock: Permission denied
change user: in /etc/sysconfig/mimedefang
to be :
# Run the multiplexor and filters as this user, not root. RECOMMENDED
I had to edit /etc/init.d/mimedefang
# Since /var/spool/MIMEDefang might be tmpfs, ensure that it is properly
chown postfix:postfix /var/spool/MIMEDefang
restorecon -R /var/spool/MIMEDefang >/dev/null 2>&1
if [ ! -d /var/spool/MIMEDefang/.razor ]; then
chown postfix:postfix /var/spool/MIMEDefang/.razor
chmod 0750 /var/spool/MIMEDefang/.razor
if [ ! -L /var/spool/MIMEDefang/.razor/razor-agent.log ]; then
# The Razor2 log is mostly useless, and we can't change its
# In order to prevent it from filling up the spool, we just link it
ln -sf /dev/null /var/spool/MIMEDefang/.razor/razor-agent.log
chown -h postfix:postfix
This only had to be made in 2.72 it was not needed in 2.70
The mailman functionality needed I did as per :
there might little things here and there but I am still dazed. :D
By the way, the footer now is not an attachment but the unsubscribe link in
the footer is not clickable.
I wonder if there is a solution for the link?
