I have installed cluebringer-2.0.7 for postfix and enabled below lines in the file of postfix. But I could not see any policy working

smtpd_recipient_restrictions = permit_mynetworks permit_sasl_authenticated reject_unauth_destination check_policy_service inet: smtpd_end_of_data_restrictions=check_policy_service inet:

To check further I enabled logging in policyd and its only shows below logs and there is no logs getting populated when I send new emails..

That is all you need to do with Postfix but you need to fill up mysql database used by Policyd.

Copy web files from webui dir to web accessible dir. Open the page and set up what you want (quotas, limits etc.).

Do not forget to create some kind of user/pass access control (for example via .htaccess/.htpasswd file...

sorry i forgot to describ here about webui. i have already configured and connected it with my sql database and it's working fine and i have setup quota values also but it's not workig . – ACHAL Jun 13 '12 at 10:11
What do you have inside postfix logs ? I think you should separate values inside smtpd_recipient_restrictions section with , and I don't see them. – mangia Jun 14 '12 at 7:03
i have the same issue, done everything as described above, no luck yet – Farhan Apr 23 '13 at 10:59
