SMTPD(8)							      SMTPD(8)



NAME
       smtpd - Postfix SMTP server

SYNOPSIS
       smtpd [generic Postfix daemon options]

DESCRIPTION
       The  SMTP  server accepts network connection requests and performs zero
       or more SMTP transactions per connection.   Each  received  message  is
       piped  through  the  cleanup(8) daemon, and is placed into the incoming
       queue as one single queue file.	For this mode of operation,  the  pro-
       gram expects to be run from the master(8) process manager.

       Alternatively, the SMTP server takes an established connection on stan-
       dard input and deposits messages directly into the maildrop  queue.  In
       this  so-called	stand-alone mode, the SMTP server can accept mail even
       while the mail system is not running.

       The SMTP  server  implements  a	variety  of  policies  for  connection
       requests,  and  for parameters given to HELO, ETRN, MAIL FROM, VRFY and
       RCPT TO commands. They are detailed below and in the main.cf configura-
       tion file.

SECURITY
       The  SMTP  server  is  moderately  security-sensitive. It talks to SMTP
       clients and to DNS servers on the network. The SMTP server can  be  run
       chrooted at fixed low privilege.

STANDARDS
       RFC 821 (SMTP protocol)
       RFC 1123 (Host requirements)
       RFC 1652 (8bit-MIME transport)
       RFC 1869 (SMTP service extensions)
       RFC 1870 (Message Size Declaration)
       RFC 1985 (ETRN command)
       RFC 2554 (AUTH command)
       RFC 2821 (SMTP protocol)
       RFC 2920 (SMTP Pipelining)
       RFC 3207 (STARTTLS command)

DIAGNOSTICS
       Problems and transactions are logged to syslogd(8).

       Depending  on the setting of the notify_classes parameter, the postmas-
       ter is notified of bounces, protocol problems, policy  violations,  and
       of other trouble.

CONFIGURATION PARAMETERS
       Changes	to  main.cf are picked up automatically, as smtpd(8) processes
       run for only a limited amount of time. Use the command "postfix reload"
       to speed up a change.

       The  text  below provides only a parameter summary. See postconf(5) for
       more details including examples.

COMPATIBILITY CONTROLS
       The following parameters work around  implementation  errors  in  other
       software,  and/or  allow  you to override standards in order to prevent
       undesirable use.

       broken_sasl_auth_clients (no)
	      Enable inter-operability with SMTP  clients  that  implement  an
	      obsolete version of the AUTH command (RFC 2554).

       disable_vrfy_command (no)
	      Disable the SMTP VRFY command.

       smtpd_noop_commands (empty)
	      List  of	commands  that the Postfix SMTP server replies to with
	      "250 Ok", without doing any syntax checks and  without  changing
	      state.

       strict_rfc821_envelopes (no)
	      Require  that  addresses	received in SMTP MAIL FROM and RCPT TO
	      commands are enclosed with <>, and that those addresses  do  not
	      contain RFC 822 style comments or phrases.

       Available in Postfix version 2.1 and later:

       resolve_null_domain (no)
	      Resolve  an  address  that ends in the "@" null domain as if the
	      local hostname were specified, instead of rejecting the  address
	      as invalid.

       smtpd_reject_unlisted_sender (no)
	      Request  that  the Postfix SMTP server rejects mail from unknown
	      sender addresses, even when no  explicit	reject_unlisted_sender
	      access restriction is specified.

       smtpd_sasl_exceptions_networks (empty)
	      What SMTP clients Postfix will not offer AUTH support to.

       Available in Postfix version 2.2 and later:

       smtpd_discard_ehlo_keyword_address_maps (empty)
	      Lookup  tables,  indexed by the remote SMTP client address, with
	      case insensitive lists of EHLO keywords  (pipelining,  starttls,
	      auth,  etc.)  that  the  SMTP  server  will not send in the EHLO
	      response to a remote SMTP client.

       smtpd_discard_ehlo_keywords (empty)
	      A case insensitive list of EHLO keywords (pipelining,  starttls,
	      auth,  etc.)  that  the  SMTP  server  will not send in the EHLO
	      response to a remote SMTP client.

ADDRESS REWRITING CONTROLS
       See the ADDRESS_REWRITING_README document for a detailed discussion  of
       Postfix address rewriting.

       receive_override_options (empty)
	      Enable or disable recipient validation, built-in content filter-
	      ing, or address mapping.

       Available in Postfix version 2.2 and later:

       local_header_rewrite_clients (permit_inet_interfaces)
	      Rewrite message header addresses in mail from these clients  and
	      update incomplete addresses with the domain name in $myorigin or
	      $mydomain; either  don't	rewrite  message  headers  from  other
	      clients at all, or rewrite message headers and update incomplete
	      addresses with the domain  specified  in	the  remote_header_re-
	      write_domain parameter.

AFTER QUEUE EXTERNAL CONTENT INSPECTION CONTROLS
       As  of  version	1.0,  Postfix can be configured to send new mail to an
       external content filter AFTER the mail is queued. This  content	filter
       is  expected to inject mail back into a (Postfix or other) MTA for fur-
       ther delivery. See the FILTER_README document for details.

       content_filter (empty)
	      The name of a mail delivery transport that filters mail after it
	      is queued.

BEFORE QUEUE EXTERNAL CONTENT INSPECTION CONTROLS
       As  of  version	2.1, the Postfix SMTP server can be configured to send
       incoming mail to a real-time SMTP-based content filter BEFORE  mail  is
       queued.	This content filter is expected to inject mail back into Post-
       fix.  See the SMTPD_PROXY_README document for details on how to config-
       ure and operate this feature.

       smtpd_proxy_filter (empty)
	      The hostname and TCP port of the mail filtering proxy server.

       smtpd_proxy_ehlo ($myhostname)
	      How  the	Postfix SMTP server announces itself to the proxy fil-
	      ter.

       smtpd_proxy_timeout (100s)
	      The time limit for connecting to a proxy filter and for  sending
	      or receiving information.

GENERAL CONTENT INSPECTION CONTROLS
       The  following parameters are applicable for both built-in and external
       content filters.

       Available in Postfix version 2.1 and later:

       receive_override_options (empty)
	      Enable or disable recipient validation, built-in content filter-
	      ing, or address mapping.

EXTERNAL CONTENT INSPECTION CONTROLS
       The  following  parameters  are	applicable  for  both before-queue and
       after-queue content filtering.

       Available in Postfix version 2.1 and later:

       smtpd_authorized_xforward_hosts (empty)
	      What SMTP clients are allowed to use the XFORWARD feature.

SASL AUTHENTICATION CONTROLS
       Postfix SASL support (RFC 2554) can be used to authenticate remote SMTP
       clients	to  the  Postfix  SMTP server, and to authenticate the Postfix
       SMTP client to a remote SMTP server.  See the SASL_README document  for
       details.

       broken_sasl_auth_clients (no)
	      Enable  inter-operability  with  SMTP  clients that implement an

TARPIT CONTROLS
       When  a	remote	SMTP  client makes errors, the Postfix SMTP server can
       insert delays before responding. This can help to  slow	down  run-away
       software.   The	behavior is controlled by an error counter that counts
       the number of errors within an SMTP session that a client makes without
       delivering mail.

	      mail.

       smtpd_recipient_overshoot_limit (1000)
	      The  number  of recipients that a remote SMTP client can send in
	      excess  of  the  limit  specified  with  $smtpd_recipient_limit,
	      before  the Postfix SMTP server increments the per-session error
	      count for each excess recipient.

ACCESS POLICY DELEGATION CONTROLS
       As of version 2.1, Postfix can be configured to delegate access	policy
       decisions  to  an  external  server that runs outside Postfix.  See the
       file SMTPD_POLICY_README for more information.
