2.1.2.2. Postfix Mail Server

2.1.2.2.1. Default Installation

Add executable bit to the installation script:

chmod +x msh-ds-milter.bin

Run as root the script with --install parameter:

./msh-ds-milter.bin --install

Note

Installation script should automatically detect Postfix configuration. If you have multiple instances of MTA then Postfix configuration could be wrongly detected. You can force to use Postfix mail server, just run script with additional --use-postfix parameter.

Before installation could continue you need to confirm found Java path:

* Checking permissions...done.
* Java version found... openjdk version "1.8.0-internal"
* Path: /opt/java

  You need at least version 1.8.0 (JRE 8.0), does detected version meet requirements? [y/n] y

If Java path is correct hit y and press Enter key.

When installation succeed you will see output like this:

* Running installer...
* Extracting files...done.
* Linking init script files...done.
* Updating init scripts...done.
* Copying remove script...done.
* Copying diagnostic logging script...done.
* Updating Postfix configuration file...done.
* Starting msh-ds-settings...done.
* Starting msh-ds-milter...done.
* Reloading Postfix...done.
* Application successfully installed (version X.Y.Z) in /opt/msh-ds.
