Topic: Throttling

Question about inbound throttling - I'd like to set inbound for a domain at 250 messages per day, but I would like to allow specific inbound emails from outside to a higher threshold. Is that possible?

Addendum.
Inbound throttling doesn't seem to be working. I set one account to throttle inbound to 4 max per day, and so far I have sent 10 emails, and all went through. Am I missing something?

Re: Throttling

iRedAdmin-Pro doesn't support setting throttle for external users, but the throttling plugin supports this.
You can find more details and sample in this file (comment lines):

That plugin is installed and activated - has been since the install.

# Recipient restrictions
smtpd_recipient_restrictions =
    permit_mynetworks
    reject_non_fqdn_recipient
    reject_unlisted_recipient
    check_policy_service inet:127.0.0.1:7777
    permit_sasl_authenticated
    reject_unauth_destination

# END-OF-MESSAGE restrictions
smtpd_end_of_data_restrictions =
    check_policy_service inet:127.0.0.1:7777

I have inbound throttling set in the admin interface, the entries are in the "throttle" table, but throttling is not happening.

The newest iredapd is installed.

OK, could you please re-describe this requirement with some sample domains? i'm afraid that i don't quite understand what you want. You can use "mydomain.com" for your own (or hosted) domain in your description, and "gmail.com" for external domain.

domain hosted my iredmail: mydomain.com
any inbound mail throttled to 250 messages per day per account
Ideally, I would also like:

-incoming mail to mydomain.com limited to 500 messages per day total from any outside domain, not just per local account.

-ability to allow 1000 (or any number) messages total per day from selected outside domains, let's say gmail.com 1000 per day and somedomain2.com 750 per day.

As I said, inbound throttling is turned on and set to 250 messages per day per account
One test account I set to only 4 messages per day.
Throttling does not appear to be working, as I can send the account that is set to only four messages per day dozens of messages from anywhere, and they are all processed and delivered to the account.

Update - it seems that neither inbound nor outbound throttling is working. The database table throttle_tracking is being updated with the cur_msgs incrementing properly the tid appears correct, but it seems that the system isn't reading the settings from the throttle table. My test account is set to throttle at 3 messages outbound and 4 messages inbound, but I send as many emails from the account as I want, and all inbound mail is arriving as well.

Re: Throttling

Did you try this throttle setting for external domain/sender/ip?

Try to turn on debug mode in iRedAPD, it logs more detailed message for troubleshooting.

This user is throttled to max 3 outbound per day. I send 5, and they all went through

Postfix will send info to iRedAPD TWICE for EACH email, with protocol_state == RCPT and END-OF-MESSAGE.
These skipped plugins are applied in RCPT state, and you didn't copy its log from iRedAPD log file.

Throttling for max messages is applied in RCPT, please check iRedAPD log again, copy them here for troubleshooting.
