How to unallocate port 25 and 587?
Octeth allocates port 25 and 587 for its own inbound SMTP server. This inbound SMTP server is used for bounce processing as well as reply monitoring and forwarding.
However, you may want to install and run Postfix, Qmail, PowerMTA or similar on-premise MTA on the server you are running Octeth.
In such a case, first you must disable port 25 and port 587 allocation on Octeth’s configuration.
Follow these steps:
haproxyservice, comment these marked lines with a dash:
- Rebuild and restart Octeth’s HAProxy service:
- Now, you can go ahead and run Postfix, Qmail, PowerMTA or any other on-premise MTA on the same server with Octeth.
cd /opt/oempro/ docker-compose build haproxy docker-compose kill haproxy && docker-compose up -d haproxy
When setting up a delivery server in Octeth, set the SMTP host to
172.17.0.1 instead of
localhost. This will make sure that Octeth connects to the port 25 (or 587) of the host server.
docker-compose.ymlfile and perform the same change after the Octeth version uprade.
