What distro & what version of it?

What version of postfix?

Why doesn’t policyd “run properly”?  Do you get any error messages?


There’s really only one mainstream solution, and that’s to use policyd ( <http://www.policyd.org> www.policyd.org).  There are other, less well-supported policy daemons… see  <http://www.postfix.org/addon.html#policy> http://www.postfix.org/addon.html#policy for a list.

Subject: [RndTbl] Postfix Policy Daemon


Hello All,

I have recently setup a new email server running postfix, dovecot, etc... One of the issues I have is stopping my clients from sending a rediculous amount of mail as they tend to use my server from sending there spam. I was hoping to use a policy daemon to stop users from sending more than 100 emails per day and adjust the limit depending on the user/client. Unforunately I cannot find a policy daemon for postfix that runs properly on my distro.

Does anyone have any ideas ? Is there an up to date policy daemon out there for postfix or an alternative solution to restrict my users.
