I have two servers setup using virtualmin + ubuntu. the problem i am experiencing is getting the new milter used by virtualmin for ratelimiting to work.
On both my primary server, and secondary, I am experiencing the same issue.
i have tried both reinstallation of the package, and a Purge;
i have upped sendmail to log level 11, and this was the output i found in /var/log/mail.log
Dec 17 18:36:31 rwgu1 sendmail: rBHNaVnN027493: Milter (dkim-filter): init success to negotiate Dec 17 18:36:31 rwgu1 sendmail: rBHNaVnN027493: Milter (ratelimit-filter): init success to negotiate Dec 17 18:36:31 rwgu1 sendmail: rBHNaVnN027493: Milter (ratelimit-filter): to error state Dec 17 18:36:31 rwgu1 sendmail: rBHNaVnN027493: Milter: connect to filters
i searched the forums for both “greylist” and “ratelimit” to see if there was any discussion on this topic. what i found, did not suffice.
the only other sendmail milter i am using is opendkim; i have tested to see if rate limited is working by setting a low interval of emails per hour on both servers, and attempted to send several emails from my smtp client. mail IS getting through, which is NOT the desired effect.
i have added noauth to greylist.conf; i have also attempted to enabled logging by uncommenting the lines mentioned in greylist.conf, but no logging was actually performed…
furthermore, running “milter-greylist -c” says that our configuration file is seemingly healthy, and is just slightly changed from the default. the daemon is running, as user “greylist”, and adding “verbose” to the configuration and performing “service milter-greylist restart” shows that is seems to be loading properly…
can any body please help me debug my issue, or potentially lend me some advice that might help me get this milter working? thank you for taking the time to read my question, any support would be greatly appreciated
