Install MailScanner / MSFE on DirectAdmin

Support Portal  »  Knowledgebase  »  Viewing Article

  1. Login to your root account on your server via SSH
  2. Download the installer, expand it and go into it:
    tar -xzf msinstall.tar.gz
    cd msinstall/
  3. Open the INSTALL.txt file and carefully follow the install instructions in the section for DirectAdmin. This includes instructions for installing Clamav, MailScanner, and MSFE.
  4. Install/configure Razor and DCC.
    razor-admin -create
    razor-admin -register
    cd /root/rpms
    tar -xzf dcc.tar.Z
    cd dcc-*/
    ./configure --disable-dccm
    make install
    sed -i "s/DCCM_LOGDIR=\"log\"/DCCM_LOGDIR=\"\"/" /var/dcc/dcc_conf
    cdcc 'info -N'
    cd ..
    /bin/rm -Rf dcc-* dcc.tar.Z

    Ensure that the following ports are open in any software or hardware firewalls:

    DCC - out-bound UDP port 6277
    DCC - out-bound TCP port 587 (for reporting spam)
    Razor - out-bound TCP port 2703

  5. Once installed, make sure that MailScanner is running correctly and that exim is sending and receiving emails:
    tail -f /var/log/maillog
    tail -f /var/log/exim/mainlog
  6. Please note that the script uses a stable version of MailScanner which might not be the very latest from the developer
