Mailcleaner


Updating mailcleaner.org (updated post) 1

I use the mailcleaner community version for anti spam/virus. Mailcleaner is an Linux appliance that’s easy to set up and configure. The community version is free of charge and can be used to block spam and viruses before they enter your mailserver (for example my Exchange servers). When you have any questions or want to hear about my experience regarding Community please leave a comment. Here is how you can update to the latest version :

For a full update is better to update using the following steps :

  • aptitude update
  • aptitude safe-upgrade
  • cd /usr/mailcleaner
  • cvs -q update -dP
  • source lib/updates/update_binaries.sh
  • stabilizeBinaries
  • install/install_perl_libs.sh
  • install/install_sa.sh
  • /usr/mailcleaner/bin/check_db.pl –update
  • /etc/init.d/mailcleaner restart
