    DMARc SPF autoreply vacation message Gmail fails

    The claim is that with a full DMARC setup, your E-mail messages would be rock solid. In my experience, E-mails got through fine without it, and with it, customers sometimes have issues. Some customers leave it on and some turn it off because of trouble with certain destinations. My thoughts...

    DMARc SPF autoreply vacation message Gmail fails

    Plus DKIM fails, in which case you are worse off with it than without it in a forward situation.

    DMARc SPF autoreply vacation message Gmail fails

    Forwards will always fail if it depends on the sending servers DNS being right because the E-mail came from the forwarder's server, not the original sender's server so they will never match, not SPF or DKIM. You set in DMARC what the policy is. If the policy can be nothing has to match, one...

    View Emails in folders

    Problem: Customer calls and says one of its virtual email users has a massive issue with SPAM. They shut down their account so they don't get driven nuts. How can I view what is in that without turning it back on and getting the password from the customer? Thanks!

    Upgrade to FreeBSD 11.3 experiences

    I've only done new installations with FreeBSD, but never an upgrade. I have a server with 11.2 and want to upgraded it to 11.3. Any pointers you can give me would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Your thoughts on making /Home its own virtual drive

    We've only used VMware ESXi on bare metal since 2008, which gives us VMFS, so we only need UFS for FreeBSD. My thoughts are that /home should be a separate virtual hard drive because it can start out small to save space, and then we can grow /home only on the VMs where needed. The requirements...

    IP login to new server's control panel redirects me to the old server.

    IP login to new server's control panel redirects me to the old server. I've had to move a my VMs to a new server. I went through the IP changes in FreeBSD in rc.conf, hosts, and resolv.conf. Then I did the new DirectAmin license fetch. When I try to log into the new control panel with the IP...

    Email cert strategy

    With HTTP/2, the multiple certs for the same IP couldn't be simpler to implement. However, is there a similar strategy we can use for Email? People can use mail.<mydomain.tld> in their clients for their incoming and outgoing email servers and it works, but the cert doesn't match, and they get...

    Choice of MySQL or MariaDB during install instead of the MariaDB hijacking

    You ask for every other tiny little thing like which FTP client you want, or even if you want DA to maintain many main processes, but not which database. That's odd behavior. What are your reasons? There are TONS of reasons for people to prefer MySQL over MariaDB.

    What needs to change if you copy a DA server?

    Mission Copying an ESXi VM is a lot easier than doing a full OS and DA install and config...I think. LOL! Things I can think of that would need to change are: DirectAdmin - Visit https://www.directadmin.com/clients - Login and change information for license as necessary. ssh operating system...
