PowerMTA (PMTA) 的安装和设置方法

PowerMTA 安装包中有以下几个文件:

    PowerMTA-3.5r16-201012281936.i586.rpm

    PowerMTA-3.5r16-201012281926.x86_64.rpm

    powermta_3.5r16-201012281937_i386.deb

    pmtad_linux64

    pmtad_linux32

    license.linux64

    license.linux32

安装步骤

1. 添加用户组

    groupadd pmta

2. 安装PowerMTA (以64位 Linux 服务器为例)

    rpm -Uvh PowerMTA-3.5r16-201012281926.x86_64.rpm

执行完成后,显示下面提示信息:

    PowerMTA has been installed.  Please review the configuration

    (in /etc/pmta/config) to ensure it fits your needs.

    The PowerMTA User's Guide is available on file:/usr/share/doc/pmta/UsersGuide.pdf.

                        *** WARNING ***

    The SMTP TCP port is already in use by other software on this

    system.  Installation will continue, but in order to be able to

    start up PowerMTA you will need to stop the other software

    or reconfigure PowerMTA to use an alternative port.  See the

    manual section about startup problems for more information.

                        *** WARNING ***

    Thank you for choosing PowerMTA.

    This software requires a license to run.  To obtain a license key,

    please contact Port25 at or call +1.410.750.7687

    during office hours, U.S. Eastern Time.

    If you already received a license key from Port25, please save it

    as /etc/pmta/license before starting PowerMTA.

表示执行成功了。

3. 复制许可文件 license 和执行文件 pmtad

    cp license.linux64 /etc/pmta/license

    cp pmtad_linux64 /usr/sbin/pmtad

4. 启动 pmta

    /etc/rc.d/init.d/pmta start 或者 service pmta start

   停止 pmta

    /etc/rc.d/init.d/pmta stop 或者 service pmta stop

如果启动失败,可以用 –debug 参数检查。

    /usr/sbin/pmtad –debug

5. 修改 pmta 的配置文件,允许通过浏览器远程查看、修改配置

    vi /etc/pmta/config

找到 http-access 这个参数,然后添加一条:

    http-access 21.34.56.78 admin

其中 21.34.56.78 是你自己的IP地址。

重新启动 pmta

    service pmta start

这样就可以通过:http://mpta.mydomain.com:8080/editConfig 查看配置文件了。

说明: 通过浏览器修改配置文件不需要重启 pmta。

6. PowerMTA 的日志文件位于 /var/log/pmta/log

安装出现问题,请通过日志文件来了解是什么原因引起的。

7. 关于连接限制的说明

Linux 系统默认的连接数是1024,当pmta连接数过多的时候,就会受到很多的限制,所以要把连接数调大。

查看当前的连接数:

    ulimit -n

修改方法如下:

    vi /etc/security/limits.conf

    在文件最后面添加:

    * soft nofile 65535

    * hard nofile 65535

    Hello, how are you, it is very good your product, explain very well how to install the PowerMta.

    I have a problem and wanted to see if you can help me, I installed the PowerMta in Centos 6 Cpanel, the problem is that after a few days the PowerMta stop sending emails to the outside, it’s like that ip is blocked, and every one days have to be placing the stop command /etc/init.d/iptables, with that the PowerMta starts sending emails denuevo abroad, with that fixes the problem for a few days, but then it happens again.

    You know how I can do to fix the problem ?, there anything I can configure on the server or on the firewall so that it does not happen again ?, because they do not know why this is happening, if I prune help thank you, hope your prompt answer.

    Regards.

    Nicolas.

      Hi Ricardo, I would use the client software (Interspire, oempro or phplist) to check the blacklist before sending email to PMTA.

    Hello.

    I think you did not understand my question.

    I have a list of e-mails from people and domains you do not want to receive e-mail.

    Before using PowerMTA I configured the lock that list in postfix as the following command: smtpd_sender_restrictions check_recipient_access = hash: /etc/postfix/listblock

    My question is if there is a command that I can set in the config: /etc/pmta/config that blocks this list.

    Thank You

      Do you want to block Sender or Recipient? Your postfix config doesn’t look right. It should be

      smtpd_sender_restrictions = 
        check_sender_access hash:/etc/postfix/sender_access

      … or …

      smtpd_recipient_restrictions = 
        check_recipient_access hash:/etc/postfix/recipient_access

      To block Recipient domain in PMTA, try

      relay-domain bounces.yourdomain.com
      relay-domain otherdomain.com
      relay-address bounce@bounces.yourdomain.com
      <domain bounces.yourdomain.com>
      type discard
      </domain>
      <domain otherdomain.com>
      type discard
      </domain>

    Your blog was very helpful.
    I have a question about the max outbound connections, when I executed “pmta show status” it list that the maximum outbound connections is 3. Is this value dependent on the license I am using?

    PowerMTA is great mail transfer agent (MTA) app but its pricing is quite high to be affordable by Small and Medium level email sender there are many PowerMTA alternatives which offers similar features and yet very affordable.

    We do provide affordable yet quality email marketing servers and can even help to setup on premise email marketing system.

    Hi Sir,
    I had configured PMTA as per your details. everything is working fine. i decide to add dkim key file, created from port25 and the key file was added in
    /etc/pmta/domain-key/asdfdf.something.com.pem. but when i insert the dkim identity line into http://asdfdf.something.com:19988/editConfig like

    smtp-source-host 123.21.21.45 something.com
    domain-key asdfdf,something.com,/etc/pmta/domain-key/asdfdf.something.com.pem

    its shows an “Error: cannot add new file “/etc/pmta/domain-key/asdfdf.something.com.pem” to configuration for security reasons.”

    please give me a solution to add dkim identity line from pmta monitoring page.

      Quoted from superuser.com:
      Linux Mint, being a Debian derivative, has a debdb instead of a rpmdb. Hence you must use dpkg/apt and not rpm/yum for the system to properly recognize the package.
