axmail.conf man page

axMail ā€” A powerful but simple SMTP plugin for URONode.

Synopsis

axmail.conf

Description

axmail.conf This file configures the operations of axMail-FAX. You have to insure that you add the proper group using addgroup. The common one to use is "ax25".

Commands

The following opions are supported for axmail.conf:

IdleTimeout

This should not be longer than the same command in uronode.conf.

HostName

This is the fully qualified hostname of your mail system. Typically this would be an amprnet domnain such as n1uro.ampr.org.

AllowMail

This command controls who has access to use mail on your system. The default is all.

Identification

This shows how users can authenticate into the application. The default is none as the password used over RF may also be used for popping/imap if the local sysop chooses to do this. Disconnect user from their mailbox."

AutoCreate

This allows creation of the user accounts. Since you can also configure dovecot or a pop3 daemon and pop-before-smtp to allow mail on smartphones as well, this should be set to yes which is default.

LoginAllowed

This grants or denies permissions for other functions such as ssh on the box. This also controls access to imap/pop. Default is yes.

AutoGroup

I suggest using ax25. You'll have to set this using addgroup ax25.

First_uid

This is the first user id numeric to be used when axmail creates accounts. I suggest 2000 as this keeps mail clients 1000 UID away from actual local clients so it'll somewhat separate them this way.

Last_uid

This sets just how many users may create and use mailboxes using axmail.

HomeDir

This sets the base of the users home directory. I suggest using the standard home directory for all users.

Shell

This is the shell the users are granted. I suggest if you wish not to allow ssh or telnet access into your server to use /bin/false.

FaxGate

This is the efax gateway to send your faxes through to. The SFax command will preformat your mail to use this gateway. Remove the quotes.

Files

/usr/local/etc/ax25/welcome.txt

Greeting file for new users to welcome them to the mail system.

/etc/postfix/main.cf
