NGINX SMTP Proxy

Hi,

i already googled, but unfortanly i wasnt able to find a example for
nginx smtp proxy configuration. i wanted to setup as a simple smtp proxy
in front of a sendmail daemon.

thanks!

Hi,

You can check this one
http://wiki.nginx.org/MailCoreModule

and probably (albeit, only through a translation :slight_smile:
http://citrin.ru/nginx:ngx_mail_core_module

We’ll shortly be adding an updated version on http://nginx.org/en/docs/
too.

Also, do you need smtp proxy with or w/o authorization? What’s the
scenario of use?

Hi Andrew,

thanks! the 2nd link looks good.

we just need to protect the real smtp server from the bad bad internet
:slight_smile: no smtp auth at all.

cheers,

This one works for me:

mail {

auth_http localhost:9090/cgi-bin/auth;
server {
listen [a:b:c::d]:25;

# this is SMTP proxy!
protocol smtp;
smtp_capabilities "PIPELINING" "SIZE 10240000" "VRFY" "ETRN" 

“ENHANCEDSTATUSCODES” “8BITMIME” “DSN”;

server_name maili2.prod.interseek.com;

proxy on;
proxy_timeout 30;
proxy_pass_error_message on;

# only if upstream supports XCLIENT
xclient on;

smtp_auth none;
so_keepalive on;

}
}

The “PIPELINING” here may be problematic, as out of the box nginx
doesn’t support SMTP pipelining.

Thanks alot for this clarification!
