Configuring Sendmail Aliases for Quarantine Digests

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

  1. Sendmail aliases are stored in the 'aliases' file (usually in the /etc/mail directory. Create an entry in the aliases file similar to the following:
    pmx-auto-approve: |/opt/pmx6/bin/pmx-qdigest-approve
  2. After adding the alias, run the newaliases program (which must be run as root) to regenerate the aliases database file.
