Installation details: RHEL5.3 with cPanel and MailScanner Front End
MailScanner is running ok for more than one year.
Our server uses the "Remove These Headers =
%rules-dir%/remove.headers.rules" setting to eliminate inbound return
receipts requests while allowing outbound receipts headers to stay intact.
Two weeks ago after upgrading to version MailScanner - v4.76.24 we
begun to notice that some inbound emails were asking for return receipts.
We played a lot with the rules file without success and as a
temporary solution, we replaced the per domain rules file with the
the following single line instruction:
Remove These Headers =
This solution is working, we have no receipts at all both inbound and
outbound, but we wish to regain the fine granularity control we once had.
The original rules file uses spaces to separate the headers.
The typical per domain lines we had in the remove.headers.rules file were:
# For each domain:
From: *@domain1.com.br X-Mozilla-Status: X-Mozilla-Status2:
To: *@domain1.com.br Confirm-Reading-To:
Delivery-Receipt-To: Disposition-Notification-To: Errors-To:
MDRcpt-To: MDSend-Notifications-To: Read-Receipt-To:
Receipt-Requested-To: Return-Receipt-To: Status: Smtp-Rcpt-To:
X-Acknowledge-To: X-Confirm-Reading-To: X-IMAPBase: X-IMAP:
X-Keywords: X-Mozilla-Status: X-Mozilla-Status2: X-PMrqc:
X-Spam-Processed: X-Status: X-UID: X-UIDL:
Those instructions used worked ok with previous MailScanner versions.
During the tests we have done with these files, we noticed that
Mailscanner does not complain (it does not report errors in the log
file) with the above described lines, but it also does not remove the
We tried a variety of combination of regex construction substituting
the spaces with \s and also using the | but none of the tried
We will appreciate any hint provided on how to build a working per
domain regex in the remove headers file using the new Mailscanner
version regex rules.
