Configuring Postfix Aliases for Quarantine Digests

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:

  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.
