    I want to use Interspire and a relay server, to do that I would like to:

    - SERVER 1 (Dedicated with Interspire) I want to point it to the local smtp server (postfix), I need to setup the main postfix server to use SERVER 2 as the relay host. Do you know how can I do it in a simple way?

    - SERVER 2 (VPS /27), I would like to setup postfix server to relay from SERVER 1, I need to rewrite the headers to remove the main server (SERVER 1) before sending any email. Do you know how can I do it in a simple way?

    - I need to rotate the IPS I think by using postfix with multiple interfaces/ips for outgoing smtp connections it can be done... I think I can manage this bit.

    What do you think?

    Any idea how to implement it, Am I on the right path?

    Thank you

    Well not sure about the technical aspect, but have you used a regular version of interspire before? It is extremely slow. The only time I got any speed out of it was with the biggest server I could possibly find and it was still pretty slow. I went down that route trying to make a free copy of software work but in the long run it was a waste of time. Not at all being mean by saying this, but on BHW forum there are a lot of write ups on how to use interspire with rotating IPs since a lot of people there use free/downloaded software. If you can't find it, let me know and I'll try to dig up the article for you.

    A way to do it is by using iptables. Just type in "postfix iptables" in google and you'll find what you want. I don't think that is the best way to do though but it is the way I am currently using.
    More advanced way would be to use the build in transport_maps and smtp_bind or maybe combining that with iptables to send to the same destination by utlizing more IPs. I am curretnly looking into that.

    Main problem I am having with this interspire clustering I am having is to remove all the footprints. Not really talking about the headers. There is four lines of code somewhere to do it but the tracking code will be from your originating domain and I have no idea how to get that rotating according to the smtp domains I am using.
    Supposidly this very easy if you know php, but I am quite sure it isn't thaat easy.
    Bet there are some people here that can bust out that code by heart ;-)

    The same goes for the unsubscribe link I could care less about though because unsubscribes don't really have to be done through a link.

    You'll have a lot of fun doing it if you have the skills I had with linux.Being none, but I am glad I went through it and it's very doable and you learn a lot in the process.

    P.S.: I would go for Debian Squeeze or Ubuntu

    Good luck and PM me if you need help but I am far from ebing good at this as well

    Hey KillahBee!

    Thank you, we can exchange notes them :)

    You are right about the footprints:

    Does anyone here knows where on IEM php code we could change that setting...?

    And the tracking code, any chance to use a redirector/url shortening or something instead?

    I'll PM you soon...

    We have implemented this into interspire and it's working amazingly.
    If you are interested hit me up.
