Note: This tutorial is applicable to iRedMail-0.7.0 and later releases. If you're using iRedMail-0.6.1 and earlier versions, please refer to this tutorial.

[edit] Summary

Since iRedMail-0.7.0, quarantining related settings are configured but disabled by default, you can easily enable quarantining with this tutorial.

With below steps, Virus/Spam/Banned emails will be quarantined into SQL database. You can manage quarantined emails with iRedAdmin-Pro.

[edit] Configure Amavisd to enable quarantining

  • Edit Amavisd config file, find below settings and update them. If it doesn't exist, just add them.
    • on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, CentOS, Scientific Linux, it's /etc/amavisd.conf or /etc/amavisd/amavisd.conf.
    • on Debian/Ubuntu/Mint, it's /etc/amavis/conf.d/50-user
    • on openSUSE, it's /etc/amavisd.conf
    • on Gentoo, it's /etc/amavisd.conf
    • on FreeBSD, it's /usr/local/etc/amavisd.conf
    • on OpenBSD, it's /etc/amavisd.conf
File: amavisd.conf
# Change below two settings to D_DISCARD.
$final_spam_destiny = D_DISCARD;
$final_banned_destiny = D_DISCARD;

#
# Quarantine SPAM into SQL server.
#
$spam_quarantine_to = 'spam-quarantine';    # <- Remove '#' at the beginning of line.
$spam_quarantine_method = 'sql:';           # <- Remove '#' at the beginning of line.

#
# Quarantine VIRUS into SQL server.
#
$virus_quarantine_to = 'virus-quarantine';   # <- Remove '#' at the beginning of line.
$virus_quarantine_method = 'sql:';           # <- Remove '#' at the beginning of line.

#
# Quarantine BANNED emails into SQL server.
#
$banned_quarantine_to = 'banned-quarantine';
$banned_files_quarantine_method = 'sql:';

Also, make sure you have below lines configured in same config file. (It's configured and enabled by default since iRedMail-0.7.0):

File: amavisd.conf
@storage_sql_dsn = (
    ['DBI:...],
);
  • Restart amavisd service to make it work.

[edit] Configure iRedAdmin-Pro to manage quarantined mails

  • Edit iRedAdmin-Pro config file settings.ini, make sure you have correct settings in "[amavisd]" section like below:
    • on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, CentOS, Scientific Linux, it's /var/www/iredadmin/settings.ini
    • on Debian, Ubuntu, Mint, it's /usr/share/apache2/iredadmin/settings.ini
    • on openSUSE, it's /srv/www/iredadmin/settings.ini
    • on Gentoo Linux, it's /var/www/iredadmin/settings.ini
    • on FreeBSD, it's /usr/local/www/iredadmin/settings.ini
    • on OpenBSD, it's /var/www/iredadmin/settings.ini
File: settings.ini
[amavisd]

logging_into_sql = True    # <- Set to True to view log of sent/received mails.

host = 127.0.0.1
port = 3306
db = amavisd 
user = amavisd
passwd = [passwd_of_sql_user_amavisd]

quarantine = True    # <- Set to True to enable quarantining management.
quarantine_port = 9998
  • Restart Apache web server to make it work.
  • You can now login to iRedAdmin-Pro, and view quarantined mails via menu "System -> Quarantined Mails". Choose action in drop-down menu list to release or delete them.
