Clement is an email server application. Its main function is to block unwanted mail (spam) as soon as possible in the email exchange process. It accepts or rejects email while the SMTP session, initiated by the email sender, is still pending, accepting legitimate email messages without the need to return an error status to non-existent or "borrowed" return address later. Clement can operate in two modes, either as a standard MTA (as sendmail, Postfix, Exim, Exchange, etc.) to store email in the recipient's own area, or to transmit the mail to an another SMTP server acting as smart spam filtering device. Each email domain name Clement knows about can be treated in one of these two modes depending on the group to which the domain name has been set. Each message is verified by a virus scanner (ClamAV) while the SMTP connection is still open, but the refusal of mail and the reason for refusal is notified to the actual sender. Mail management is done via a Web interface and can be delegated to three administrative levels (Root-Admin, Group-Admin, Domain-Admin). Standard users can access their own logs (sent email status, email rejected, quarantined email, etc.). With this interface, the user can handle the rejection and acceptance of mail. Users who are level "Admin" can access the session logs (via the Web interface). Clement uses a SQL database (PostgreSQL, MySQL) to store and manage logs, user profiles, and dynamic management of directives concerning the sender-receiver relationship.
vmm is an easy-to-use and configurable commandline tool for administrators and postmasters, used to manage domains, alias-domains, accounts, and relocated mail users. It allows fast and easy management of mail servers. It's designed for installations using Dovecot and Postfix with a PostgreSQL backend.
checkMX is a Perl daemon which monitors remote MX servers for a domain's overall health. If all the MX hosts are down and the domain can no longer receive mail, checkMX updates the Postfix relay_domains file so it will start accepting mail for the broken domain. Once the domain can start accepting mail on its own, checkmx will flush the mail queue for delivery and remove it from postfix relay_domains file. This prevents spammers from using the backup MX server as a spam vector.
Why a milter archiver? If you are required to also log source and destination IPs and BCCs (additional rcpt to's not in a CC field communicated at the SMTP protocol level), then the only option is do this in the MTA, or in a milter application that has hooks in the MTA process (which is exactly why milter was invented). It uses a simple regex file that can be used with several *source target-mailbox rules to define what gets mirrored where. The archiver tries to be as quiet as possible. The possible methods to archive are SMTP, sendmail inject / Postfix inject, IMAP delivery, and milter-add recipient. It was build as a replacement for a Postfix BCC setup: (sender_bcc_maps = regexp:/etc/postfix/archive; recipient_bcc_maps = regexp:/etc/postfix/archive).
POP-Before-SMTP-Auth is a POP before SMTP daemon for Dovecot and Postfix that works by scanning mail server log files. The line-matching regex can be changed from the configuration file, in case Dovecot's logging format changes, and also to adapt the script for use with something besides Dovecot. Presently the script requires that the IP address appear on a single line with the successful login in the log file.
