 smtpd_sasl_type = dovecot
 smtpd_sasl_path = private/auth

if authorization through sasldb2 is used:

 smtpd_sasl_type = cyrus
 smtpd_sasl_path = smtpd

check recipient limits:

 smtpd_recipient_restrictions = permit_mynetworks, reject_unauth_destination, check_client_access hash:/etc/mail/access, check_sender_access hash:/etc/mail/access,check_recipient_access hash:/etc/mail/access, permit_sasl_authenticated, reject_unlisted_recipient, reject_unverified_recipient, check_policy_service unix:/var/run/postgrey.sock

enable milter-interfaces:

 smtpd_milters = unix:/var/spool/postfix/spamass/spamass.sock, inet:, unix:/var/run/clamav/clamav-milter.ctl
  • unix:/var/spool/postfix/spamass/spamass.sock -SpamAssassin
  • inet: - Opendkim
  • unix:/var/run/clamav/clamav-milter.ctl - Clamav
