In pushing the button "Start Non Service", I get the message "'mail' is not a valid integer value".

What is this referring to?

I am just guessing here but check your INI file for the following settings and make sure there are valid entries:

ListenIP=66.66.66.66
ListenFQDN=mail.mydomain.com
ListenPort=25
ErrorHandlerEmailAddress="System Administrator" <null@mydomain.com>
DestinationServer=nextserver.mydomain.com
DestinationPort=25

Regards,

Dan S.

Thanks for your help.

Would these values not be set using the settings?

When I look in the ini file, I find the following:

;ListenIP=209.26.140.2
;or....
;ListenIP=209.26.140.2,209.26.140.3
ListenFQDN=192.168.2.1
ListenPort=25

;The email address to use in Error Replies to senders
ErrorHandlerEmailAddress="System Administrator" <postmaster_no_reply@mydomain.com>

; DestinationServer is where you want all mail received by SpamFilter to be forwarded to
DestinationServer=192.168.2.1
DestinationPort=26

; AllowPercent is used to accept (AllowPercent=1) or reject (AllowPercent=0) emails containing the % character.
; Many SMTP servers are susceptible to being tricked into relaying with this.
; Ex. if you are netwide.net, then a spammer can use
; mail to: joe%yahoo.com@netwide.net
; to relay mail to joe@yahoo.com if your server is vulnerable
; Setting AllowPercent to 0 rejects ALL recipients email addresses conatining the % sign
AllowPercent=0

;log daily activity to logfiles
Logging=1
ListenIP=192.168.2.1
MultiThreaded=0
MaxInboundConnections=100

Personally I don't see anything wrong, but maybe you do?

Jcarp,
 
Would these values not be set using the settings?
Normally yes
 
When I look in the ini file, I find the following:
 
ListenFQDN=192.168.2.1  Should be the Fully Qualified Domain Name like mail.domain.com
ListenPort=25  Fine
 
;The email address to use in Error Replies to senders
ErrorHandlerEmailAddress="System Administrator" <
postmaster_no_reply@mydomain.comFine
 
; DestinationServer is where you want all mail received by SpamFilter to be forwarded to
DestinationServer=192.168.2.1  If this is your normal mail server, fine
DestinationPort=26   If this is the port that the above listens on, fine
 
AllowPercent=0  ABSOLUTELY
 
;log daily activity to logfiles
Logging=1 Fine
ListenIP=192.168.2.1 
If this is the IP of the SpamFilter machine ... fine
MultiThreaded=0    Fine
MaxInboundConnections=100  Fine
 
Hope this helps,

Well Dan, if I get this thing to work and decide to purchase, you sure deserve a nice commision from LogSat. I really appreciate your expertise.

I am getting closer.

Step 1: filled in the IPs of all external servers for the SMTP listener socket. All the rest remains unchanged.

Result: Socket Error #10049. Cannot assign requested address.

Step 2: replaced FQDN by mail.one_of_the_domains.com

Result: Could not bind socket. Address and port are already in use.

What now?

My bug is definately sitting in this section.

"Jcarp",

Can you email me at daseligmann at hotmail dot com ?  I will then contact you with my "real" address.
