v5.1.5 Released

email spam filter server



  • Mailborder now logs SPF rejections to the database. The menu item is located in [ system > SPF reject log ]. You can use this information to whitelist certain IP addresses or domains from SPF checks. However, this should only be done on a short term basis until the remote domain's SPF record is corrected. The configuration file with the SPF settings is here: /etc/mailborder/spf.cf but put your edits in /etc/mailborder/conf.d/spf.cf
  • Added Spanish (Spain) language.
  • Fixed minor bug in Nginx for new installations.
  • Added bi-directional flows for both inbound and outbound email for Portal users and groups.
