10.x Qmail Patches

    I just finished applying some custom patches to qmail, as per this document - http://kb.odin.com/1161, using the Plesk patches for 9.3. Everything is working great, except for that I was previously using DomainKeys, and that patch was not included in the 9.3 release. I desperately need that functionality, and I'm now starting to wonder what other patches were added later than 9.3 that I no longer have.

    Does anyone know where I can find a patch package like the ones provided in the document above, but for 10.x?

    Thanks

    You can safely use these patches for 10.x too. DK has been released as mail handles since Plesk 9.0 version. Therefore there is no special patches for Qmail.

    Hmmm...do you have any suggestions as to why the messages aren't getting signed? I followed the KB article verbatim (literally copied and pasted the commands), and only applied the DomainBindings qmail patch (applied that patch first, then did the Plesk patches). As far as I can tell, there's nothing in that particular patch that would interfere with DomainKeys. I had no errors, warnings, or confirmations during the patching process. As of now, my messages are not even attempting to be signed.

    Thanks for the response.

    sorry little bit off topic but is there a patch available to customize (translate) qmail error-messages? like "sorry qmail was not able to deliever message to xx@xx.com. this is a permanent error" ?

    Yep, it was my outgoing messages I was checking for signing - and DomainKeys signing was turned on for all my domains.

    I got it taken care of now. Using the autoinstaller, I toggled the MTA to Postfix, then back to Qmail, restarted services, and everything works great now.

    Thank you for your help.

    Hi,

    I downloaded netqmail-1.06 and applied the patches (from here) in alphabetical order. Some patches said "Reversed (or previously applied) patch detected! Assume -R? [n]".

    They were:
    patch-ps
    patch-z01-isoc

    Should I reverse those patches? Apply anyway? Or not apply them?

    Whether I do or do not reverse I get errors.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    *** Edit ***

    I think it's because I'm using netqmail-1.06 instead of qmail-1.03. Any idea where to download qmail-1.03 from? Maybe you can put it in that article (http://kb.odin.com/1161).

    There are no links to it on the suggested site http://www.qmail.org (instead only the netqmail-1.06 distribution).

    Thanks.

    Thanks, I wasn't sure of a trusted/legitimate source.

    One quick question...

    What is the difference between "/var/qmail/bin/qmail-queue" and "/var/qmail/bin/qmail-queue.moved"?

    Similarly "var/qmail/bin/qmail-local" and "var/qmail/bin/qmail-local.moved", and "/var/qmail/bin/qmail-remote" and "/var/qmail/bin/qmail-remote.moved"?

    And why is it only these 3 files that have the ".moved" suffix?

    Thank you.

    Still awaiting qmail patches

    I believe we are still awaiting the Qmail Patches used in Plesk 10. I have a client waiting to transfer to a Plesk 10 system but cannot without these.

    Once again - we haven't any special patches for Qmail for 10.x version.

    Its seems (as anyone with a technical background knew all along) that there were patches for qmail for plesk 10.x all along. Full details are here.

    I also needed 2 more patches: Multiple outgoing IP patch: Allows you to set an outgoing IP depending on the sender domain..
    and big queue patch.

    To be able to install #1, I had to disable ipv6 patch.
    I never attempted the #2 however, but would love to. As I'm seeing less than ideal output performance from qmail..
