postfix - fetchmail - procmail - spamassassin problem


Hi,

First I'll explain what I'm trying to achieve:

As I've got myself a "storage" computer installed, I wanted it to check for new mail on my several accounts on a certain interval and server these mails through POP3.

This way I would be able to check my mails from suse and windows, on both my notebook and PC, without scattering the mails all around on 4 mail clients.

Another good thing would be that I'd have to train a spam filter only once, instead of 4 times on each mail client.

I also wanted to install a webmail application so I could check all my email accounts at once, even from another computer.

After some research I figured I should go with the following setup:
fetchmail
postfix
procmail
spamassassin
squirrelmail

I think I got fetchmail working well (I see no errors anyway) and the messages seem to be downloaded, but postfix seems to reject them

mails don't arrive anyway (checked with the 'mail' command) and aren't delivered to my Maildir folder either

I've followed this guide

Can someone please help me find out what's going wrong?

I'm especially curious about what caused this:

Apr 14 15:55:00 annelies postfix/qmgr[3052]: 4A48A11CBD0: removed

If I need to post something else (log, config, command output, ...) I'd happily provide the info.

OS: SUSE 10.2 x86_64

Thx in advance!

PS: I'm keeping an eye on mail1 with fetchmail and sent a mail from mail2 to mail1

Hi.

The mail log looks normal. postfix isn't rejecting the message - the 'removed' line means that the message has been removed from postfix's queue, because postfix has delivered the message.
It looks like the message was relayed to smtp.telenet.be, which may not be what you wanted to happen. The 'status=sent' part shows that the message went OK, so it should be sitting in your email1@telenet.be account waiting to be picked up.

I don't understand, I've sent a mail from mail2 to mail1.

Then fetchmail is supposed to pick up that message from the mail1 inbox and deliver it locally to procmail.

I only have the message once in the inbox of mail1 (sent from mail2)

Can you please guide me a little further?

thanks in advance

fetchmail has picked up the message, and delivered it to postfix on the localhost. postfix has then relayed the message back to the telenet.be mail servers, instead of delivering it locally, which is why it's still in the mail1 inbox.

Could you post your ~/.fetchmailrc file (without the passwords, of course)?

Code:
set postmaster "v1per"
set bouncemail
set no spambounce
set properties ""
set daemon 600
poll in.telenet.be with proto POP3
       user 'mail@telenet.be' there with password 'pass' is 'mail1@telenet.be' 'username' 'pass' here options keep fetchall
I used fetchmailconf to set this up

The problem is your 'here' username is set to mail1@telenet.be . postfix sees this and (quite correctly) forwards the mail on to the telenet.be mail exchange.
Your 'here' username should be the Unix username of your local user. The last line should look something like:
Code:
user 'mail@telenet.be' there with password 'pass' is 'v1per' here options keep fetchall
if mail is to be delivered locally.
