virtual dependency on postgrey the greylisting filter does nto require postgreSQL

hi,

i done some testing and from what i see enabling the greylisting on postfix from virtualmin force user to install and run the postgreSQL database. But when i look at how greylisting works at least on debian wheezy it seems to use berkerleydb files in /Var/lib/ and not postgreSQL at all. Therefor this dependency seems to be something not used perhaps a missunderstanding because of the name or an ancient requirement that is not anymore used.

Is there a way to remove this dependency for this feature ?

best regards,
Ghislain.

Howdy,

Hmm, the Postgrey module definitely shouldn’t require that the Postgres database be running. It doesn’t use MySQL either.

On my personal server, I’m not running Postgres, but I am using greylisting.

What error(s) are you seeing that indicate it wants Postgres to be installed and running?

well i did the test again and it seem that i drink too much alcohol as it does not touch postgresql… sorry for the noise :frowning:

i thnik i should start using drugs, all sysadmin fall into that one way or another anyway !
