maldet not e-mailing reports, mail is installed

Postby iamdamnsam » 2017/04/28 15:53:50

if I run a manual scan it says the report was e-mailed to my e-mail address (a gmail address) but I never get the e-mail. I have searched everywhere and all I can find are issues with mail not being installed, but mine is. Any help would be much appreciated, thanks :)

Look in your /var/log/maillog to see what happens to it. If the google mail servers say they accepted it then it's probably been classified as spam and filed in your spam folders. You'll need to make sure your ip address is not on any RBLs and has a valid reverse DNS lookup. That's before you look at things like spf and dkim etc.

I am not sure if any of this is related, but this is what I see in the mail log. This is just a portion

I am assuming the plesk sendmail isn't related, but I really don't know.

You should take it up with plesk support.
Control panels make so many changes to the system that normal CentOS management procedures could just make things worse.
