Qmail Configuration

Hosted Cloud

Qmail - TCPServer

When using Qmail using tcpserver to spawn the qmail-smtp process, add a rule to your /etc/tcp.smtp file directing it to accept connections based on the reverse DNS of the connecting host:


Qmail - Inetd

When using Qmail as an inetd service by using tcp-env, all SMTP access configuration is done from the following files:

  • /etc/hosts.allow
  • /etc/hosts.deny
  1. Add the following line to /etc/hosts.allow
    tcp-env: .antispamcloud.com: setenv = RELAYCLIENT
  2. Add the following line to /etc/hosts.deny . This will deny access from all hosts except those in /etc/hosts.allow for the inetd service qmail
    tcp-env: ALL

Local Cloud

Replace .antispamcloud.com with your servers root hostname.
