    qmail security issue?

    hi
    recently i had hired a programmer to install qmail on my server.


    i was wondering if its possible for him do some settings in qmail so that all my incoming emails are secretly forwarded to him?

    is that possible?

    what files in qmail should i check for such kind of settings.

    thanks

    Add a redirect in every:

    /var/qmail/mailnames/domain.com/user_prefs

    If the mailname has other redirects/forwards and mailboxes, it will still get there too.

    Greetings:

    Now, that is trust for you ;-)

    Dig, is there a reason for the lack of trust?

    Thank you.

    Well it's there on a typical Plesk install of qmail:

    [[email protected] qmail]# cd /var/qmail;ls
    alias bin boot control doc mailnames man queue users

    Where does qmail keep your domain entries? Actually, I was wrong before. It is the .qmail file that would need the redirect. On Plesk's qmail, we find at:

    /var/qmail/mailnames/domain.com/user/.qmail

    Do a locate .qmail and that should show you the path.

    # locate .qmail
    /var/qmail/alias/.qmail-root
    /var/qmail/alias/.qmail-postmaster
    /var/qmail/alias/.qmail-mailer-daemon
    /var/qmail/alias/.qmail-anonymous
    /home/dotcom/.qmail-default
    /home/sheetal/.qmail-default
    /home/vpopmail/domains/dotcom.com/.qmail-default
    /downloads/qmailrocks/qmail-scanner-1.20/contrib/logrotate.qmailscanner

    i dont think i have a plesk qmail.

    i pico'd the first 5 files above and they only had my email id in it.


    where else should i check?


    thanks for the help
