Exchange/E-mail Hosting

Feb 11, 2008

Can anyone recommend a host that specializes in reliable Microsoft Exchange e-mail hosting that includes the web client?

Or optionally, a business that specalizes in reliable e-mail hosting along with collaborative web features.

Or finally, can anyone recommend a collaboration web software that could be installed on a UNIX/Linux server that already offers IMAP?

Didn't really see a forum that this question would fit in, so figured I'd put it in the forum with the experts.

Microsoft Exchange Vs @Mail

Jan 28, 2007

A new client of mine used Microsoft Exchange to check their emails online... I run @Mail, and am just wondering is this an ok trade off? Or is Exchange something entirely different to just WebMail... I'm worried that it might be but aren't sure...

Sendmail Won't Send Mail To Hotmail Or Yahoo.

Mar 30, 2007

A better title might be "hotmail or yahoo won't accept the emails from sendmail."

I have sendmail version: 8.13.4

I have the only modification I can remember doing is:

I can send emails perfectly to gmail accounts. Here is a sucessfull output of an email send to gmail:

From: root <>
Message-Id: <>
To: undisclosed-recipients:;

This is a test of the body.

I originally thought the reason hotmail or yahoo didn't receive my emails was because I had no reverse DNS for the IP I was sending the emails out with. Therefore I had my VPS provider create one for my IP. It now reflects with the IP I use to send out emails (

Even after the reverse DNS in place, hotmail nor yahoo could recieve my emails. I am now pretty much stump as to why. I have googled and scanned various other solutions and I havent found anything.

Here is a verbose output of using sendmail to an hotmail address of mine:

Closing connection to []
>>> QUIT
221 2.0.0 closing connection

The main thing that strikes out to me is that hotmail says "Queued mail for delivery" whereas Gmail normally says "OKAY". It seems as hotmail gets the email, and then decides it's no good. I don't know if my IP is blacklisted or I have to change something in my configuration from to my IP, or what I have to do.

Change Default Sender Address Using Php Mail() / Sendmail

Oct 31, 2009

I'm wondering if anyone else has experience with this, or if it's something easy that I'm overlooking.

I am on a VPS service (CentOS Linux) and I want my php mail function emails to send from a specified address. I've already manipulated the headers, so the emails do appear to come from the specified addres, but on mobile devices it comes up as format. I would like this to read something like

know which configuration files can change this default address?

SASL Authentication For Mail Server (Sendmail/Postfix)

Mar 18, 2007

I recently moved to virtual dedicated hosting for my website, mainly because I wanted a better mail server to work with to manage a mailing list.

I have a few PHP software scripts for different things: managing affiliates and email marketing.

I want to send mail using both of those via SMTP on my new server. They both have a place to type in the host and username/password.

The problem I am noticing is SASL Authentication. They attempt to connect to the host without any trouble. However, the affiliate software fails SASL Authentication every time I try to send an email or test the email system.

Email marketing software connects when I manually send a campaign. However, users are supposed to immediately receive a confirmation mail upon opting in. In this case, it shows up as an attempt in the mail log, but it fails SASL Authentication. I don't know if it's a problem with the software or not, since it attempts to connect but fails, yet connects successfully in other cases.

My question is this: Is there another way around this? I've contacted my host to double check on the appropriate username/password to pass authentication. I will also be contacting the software developers after I receive an answer.

But if nothing comes of it, is there any way around it? Is there a place where I can have it automatically authenticate if the email is coming from a certain user, or if the attempt is being made from the same server (everything sits on the same server, I use localhost in the software to connect to the mail server). Since I am the only person who has access to the server and uses it, it seems safe to automatically authenticate if the request is being asked by the server itself...

I'm just looking for other alternatives if the software does indeed have a problem and I cannot figure it out.

Keep in mind I am very new to all this server and root access. Just a few days ago I was on a shared hosting plan, so I didn't have any access to anything. With that in mind, I know very little about mail servers, although I've been learning more over the past few days. I only stumbled upon the mail logs on my server recently by browsing files in the control panel (I'm not familiar with SSH, although I do have access to it)

So, to keep things simple, is a current user. is the one that was deleted. Can I forward mail from tim's address to bob's address without a using a distrobution list?

I usually use contacts to forward mail, but that only appears to work for external addresses, and not for internal addresses (ie,

Any ideas?

I get about 3+ of these emails a day letting me know that ldf has blocked the ip temporary.

I am now wondering should I be worried about this ip port scanning?

The ip is from the netherlands where my server is hosted and was wondering if its a coincidence or not?

Website Malware Scanning

Apr 8, 2009

A website I've recently been entrusted with was cracked into via brute force ftp earlier this week. Apparently the bad guys ran a script that added iframe links to every page named index.html. The iframe linked to 3 sites that prompted malware downloads.

I think I've found and removed all the affected code, however I'm looking for an online website scanner that will drill down through all the links on a given site and search the code for similar problems.

I've only found a couple of these so far and they don't seem to fit the bill; was wondering if anyone here had recommendations or experience with similar tools...

PCI Scanning On A Shared Server (UK)

Aug 23, 2009

Does anyone have experience of PCI DSS scanning on a shared server? Our current hosting company have told us that it's unlikely to pass on a shared server, and that we should move to a Virtual Managed Server for them to make the necessary changes to pass a PCI scan.

In particular, we're talking PCI compliance to use PayPal website payments pro UK.

From Googling there seems to be a lot of debate on this issue - varying from 'all you need for PCI compliance is a SSL certificate' (this seems to be paypals attitude), to 'PCI scans can be passed on a shared server if your host is willing to help' to 'you need separate dedicated servers for the database and site etc'.

Does anyone use website payments pro UK, have a shared server, and regularly pass quarterly PCI scans? Also, we would much prefer a host based in the UK - we seem to get much better performance from our UK host than we did when the site was hosted in the US (our customers are almost completely UK based).

Avoiding Port Scanning And Brute Force

Oct 28, 2009

I get a lot of messages from CSF about Port Scanning and Bruteforce detection.. Is there a way to avoid all of these attacks ? Because it tries to figure out my clients ftp or pop3 user with several usernames, i.e. administrator, postgres, mysql, httpd, and many more..

I know a little about internet security.. Is it possible to make my public IP of shared hosting untraceable ? Like this one..

Just do a ping to or and then you will receive RTO message or Destination host unreachable, but actually the site is running well..
