Default Quota when adding users

IndiMail has ability to configure various limits for a domain using the vlimit(1) program. You can set password expiry, default quota, allow only POP3 access and even have an expiry date for the domain.

One useful feature of setting domain limits is setting the default quota when adding users using the vaddduser(1) command.

To turn on domain limits for a domain, you need to run the vmodddomain(1) program

% /var/indimail/bin/vmoddomain -l 1

The compile time default for quota is 5 Mb which may not be what you want. If you want 50 Mb of quota to be assigned by default when adding users, here is what you need to do

% sudo /var/indimail/bin/vlimit -q 50000000

% sudo /var/indimail/bin/vadduser pass

The AdminClient Protocol

IndiMail provides close to around 300 different programs as part of a flexible Enterprise Messaging Platform. You can carry administer the entire platform with around 45 of these programs. A program called indisrvr(8) provides a way for users to secure execute these commands from any remote location. To execute these programs, you need to have an admin account on the IndiMail server. These accounts can be created by the mgmtpass(8) program. Once you have an admin account on the IndiMail server, you can further restrict users to certain programs using the vpriv(8) program. vpriv can further modify privileges by allowing only certain options within a allowed program.

To execute these programs on the IndiMail server, you need to connect to port 4000 and use the adminclient protocol. The adminclient protocol is described below by showing a conversation between a client and the server 'indisrvr'

s - denotes server
c - denotes client

Writing Filters for IndiMail

IndiMail provides multiple methods by which you can intercept an email in transit and modify the email headers or the email body. A filter is a simple program that expects the raw email on standard input and outputs the message text back on standard output. The program /bin/cat can be used as a filter which simply copies the standard input to standard output without modifying anything. Some methods can be used before the mail gets queued and some methods can be used before the execution of local / remote delivery.

It is not necessary for a filter to modify the email. You can have a filter just to extract the headers or body and use that information for some purpose. IndiMail also provides the following programs - 822addr(1), 822headerfilter(1), 822bodyfilter(1), 822field(1), 822fields(1), 822header(1), 822body(1), 822headerok(1), 822received(1), 822date(1), 822fields(1) to help in processing emails.

Let us say that we have written a script /usr/local/bin/myfilter. The myfilter program …
