Configuring Postfix Aliases for Quarantine Digests

About this task

To use the PureMessage Quarantine Digest function, you must add an alias to the alias file that matches the address specified in the approve_addr field of the pmx-qdigest.conf configuration file (or on the Digest Options page of the Quarantine tab in the PureMessage Manager). By default, this address pmx-auto-approve@mydomain.com.

Sendmail aliases are stored in the 'aliases' file (usually in the postfix/etc/ directory).

To configure Postfix aliases for quarantine digests:

Follow these steps

  1. Create an entry in the aliases file similar to the following:
    pmx-auto-approve: |/opt/pmx6/bin/pmx-qdigest-approve
  2. run the newaliases program (which must be run as root) to regenerate the aliases database file.
