qmail-ldap With Simscan

Simscan is an alternative to the which is written in C and will reject viruses and spam above a certain score.

<uri strref=“”/> <p>The use of perl in qmail-scanner has always bothered me for performance reasons, so I am happy to see something written in C which will do the same and more than the qmail-scanner.</p><p>You need to install spamassassin and clamav <link idref=“41”></link></p><p>Create a role account which simscan will run as:</p>

/usr/sbin/useradd -u 75 -g qmail -c &quot;SimScan&quot; -d /var/qmail/simscan -m -k /dev/null simscan

Untar and configure simscan:

aptitude install libpcre3-dev

tar xvzf simscan-1.4.0.tar.gz

cd simscan-1.4.0

./configure --enable-clamav=y --enable-custom-smtp-reject=y --enable-spam=y --enable-regex=y --enable-per-domain --enable-spam-hits=9.0 --enable-spamc-args=&quot;-t 60&quot; --enable-attach=y  --enable-received=y

make &amp;&amp; make install-strip

usermod -G qmail clamav

/etc/init.d/clamav-daemon restart

Consider making the temporary scan directory into a ram drive:

Add to <tt>/etc/fstab</tt>:

none /var/qmail/simscan tmpfs mode=2770,uid=simscan,gid=qmail        0 0

- or - if you're going to leave temp files on disk - check permissions:

chgrp qmail /var/qmail/simscan
chmod g+ws /var/qmail/simscan

Configure matching rules, this defines the default:

echo &quot;:clam=yes,spam=yes,spam_hits=9.0,,regex=Date\s\x3a\s:personnel\sto\ssupport\sour\slogistics\sprojects&quot; &gt; /var/qmail/control/simcontrol
/var/qmail/bin/simscanmk -g
echo &quot;OnUpdateExecute /var/qmail/bin/simscanmk -g&quot; &gt;&gt; /etc/clam/freshclam.conf


QMAILQUEUE=/var/qmail/bin/simscan SIMSCAN_DEBUG=2 /var/qmail/bin/qmail-inject [email protected]

<hr/> Simscan post 1.1 from CVS has a patch which prevents SpamAssassin from running when RELAYCLIENT is set (don't scan client's mail).

The qmail-ldap patch as of 20041201 does not set RELAYCLIENT when a client SMTP authenticates as vpopmail apparently does. <p>I make the following patch to qmail-smtpd.c to set RELAYCLIENT so that clients' mail received by SMTP authentication is not tagged by SpamAssassin.</p>
