POSTFIX-ADD-FILTER(8) System Manager’s Manual POSTFIX-ADD-FILTER(8)

NAME

postfix-add-filter – add filter service to Postfix master.cf

SYNOPSIS

postfix-add-filter [smtp service name…] [smtpd port…]

DESCRIPTION

The postfix-add-filter(8) command adds an smtp service named smtp ser‐
vice name and and smtpd server listening on smtpd port to etc/post‐
fix/master.cf to facilitate integration of SMTP filters such as amav‐
isd-new or clamsmtp. The configuration is based on the upstream recom‐
mendations for amavisd-new 2.6.0. Adminstrators should verify it is
appropriate for their requirements.

The original file is copied prior to modification and left in
/etc/postfix to make it possible to revert changes easily.

Available in the Debian package for Postfix version 2.5.3 and later.

DIAGNOSTICS
If the given smtp service name or smtpd port already appear in the mas‐
ter.cf, a message will be printed to standard out and master.cf will
not be modified.

ENVIRONMENT
MAIL_CONFIG
Directory with Postfix configuration files.

The postfix-add-filter(8) command should use this, but it cur‐
rently doesn’t. It is hard coded to /etc/postfix. This should
be changed.
