Project Description

Gevent SMTP Server with MongoDB storage

Demo:

Features:

  • SMTP Server high performance with Gevent Coroutine ( fork of Gsmtpd )
  • Postfix XFORWARD extension
  • Record messages in MongoDB
  • Ability to use a custom python plugin to edit the message before recording

The use in production is not yet guaranteed

Quarantine mode example

Mode for quarantine or statistics only

  • Network: smtp sender or recipient (with internet or local network)
  • Content Filter: amavisd-new with xxx_quarantine_to (smtp:) parameters
  • Configuration in amavisd.conf
  • Zero configuration for Postfix

Proxy mode example

Mode for statistics or honey pot

  • Network: smtp sender or recipient (with internet or local network)
  • Optional: filtering after delivery to postfix by mongo mail

Filter mode example

Mode for spam/virus filtering and statistics

  • Network: smtp sender or recipient (with internet or local network)
  • Filtering: clamav/spamassassin with TCP connection (without amavisd-new)
  • Out filter: delivered so clean else

Important Notes

  • Message is not transformed (unless in quarantine mode if MMS_REAL_RCPT=1)
  • Gross message is stored in GridFS after being compressed (zlib) and converted to base64
  • In proxy mode, the raw message is sent before the registration in MongoDB and is not saved if an error occurs while sending or all recipients are rejected

Tested With

2015-02-12 07:35:36 rs_smtpd_server: [INFO] - Starting SMTP Server - server[mongo-quarantine] - on 0.0.0.0:14001 (PID:1)

Configuration

MMS_SERVER

Server mode: mongo-quarantine | mongo-proxy | mongo-proxy | debug

Default: mongo-quarantine

# with command mode
$ export MMS_SERVER=mongo-quarantine

# with docker environ
$ docker run -e MMS_SERVER=mongo-quarantine

# with command arguments
$ mongo-mail-server --server mongo-quarantine

MMS_HOST

Host bind

Default: 0.0.0.0

# with command mode

# with docker environ
$ docker run -e MMS_HOST=0.0.0.0

# with command arguments
$ mongo-mail-server --host 0.0.0.0

MMS_PORT

Port bind

Default: 14001

# with command mode
$ export MMS_PORT=14001

# with docker environ
$ docker run -e MMS_PORT=14001

# with command arguments
$ mongo-mail-server --port 14001

MMS_MONGODB_URI

Default: mongodb://localhost/message

http://docs.mongodb.org/manual/reference/connection-string/

# with command mode
$ export MMS_MONGODB_URI=mongodb://localhost/message

# with docker environ
$ docker run -e MMS_MONGODB_URI=mongodb://localhost/message

# with command arguments
$ mongo-mail-server --mongo-host mongodb://localhost/message

MMS_MONGODB_DATABASE

Default: message

# with command mode
$ export MMS_MONGODB_DATABASE=message

# with docker environ
$ docker run -e MMS_MONGODB_DATABASE=message

# with command arguments
$ mongo-mail-server --mongo-database message

MMS_MONGODB_COLLECTION

Default: 0 (no limit)

MMS_REAL_RCPT (for amavisd-new < 2.7.0)

Replace smtp recipient by real recipients (for quarantine with amavisd-new)

Default: disable

# with command mode
$ export MMS_REAL_RCPT=1

# with docker environ
$ docker run -e MMS_REAL_RCPT=1

# with command arguments
$ mongo-mail-server --real-rcpt

Usecase - Quarantine Mode configuration - with Amavis

caution

Before amavisd-new 2.7.0 the recipient envelope is replaced by xxx_quarantine_to parameters

Starting from 2.7.0, use macro '%a' in xxx_quarantine_to parameters

caution

About IP Address of smtp sender:

Amavis does not use the extension SMTPD FORWARD to send mails in quarantine. The original IP address is lost.

The solution might be to use postfix to amavis output for quarantine and postfix then return the message to mongo-mail

For Archiving only

$ vi amavisd.conf

# ip address and port of Mongo Mail Server
$archive_quarantine_method      = 'smtp:[172.17.42.1]:14001';

# Any valid email address. Domain few not exist
$archive_quarantine_to          = 'archive-quarantine@localhost.net';

# reload amavis

For Quarantine and Archiving

$ vi amavisd.conf

$archive_quarantine_method      = 'smtp:[172.17.42.1]:14001';
$archive_quarantine_to          = 'archive-quarantine@localhost.net';

$virus_quarantine_method        = $archive_quarantine_method;
$banned_files_quarantine_method = $archive_quarantine_method;
$spam_quarantine_method         = $archive_quarantine_method;

# Not quarantine for clean mail - already stored with archive_quarantine_method
$clean_quarantine_method        = undef;

# Not quarantine for bad header mail
$bad_header_quarantine_method   = undef;

$virus_quarantine_to            = $archive_quarantine_to;
$banned_quarantine_to           = $archive_quarantine_to;
$spam_quarantine_to             = $archive_quarantine_to;

#OR
$virus_quarantine_to            = 'virus-quarantine@localhost.net';
$banned_quarantine_to           = 'banned-quarantine@localhost.net';
$spam_quarantine_to             = 'spam-quarantine@localhost.net';

Usecase - Proxy Mode - Honey pot

Dedicate a postfix server for this purpose

# main.cf - ip:port of Mongo Mail
smtpd_proxy_filter=127.0.0.1:14001

# or with command line
$ postconf -e 'smtpd_proxy_filter=127.0.0.1:14001'

# reload postfix
$ postix reload

Using a plugin

The module must be in a package

# just required apply(metadata=None, data=None) method

# examples/plugins/dummy_plugin.py - modify server field and print message

import pprint
def apply(metadata=None, data=None):
    metadata['server'] = "1.1.1.1"
    pprint.pprint(metadata)

# Use:
$ mongo-mail-server --server debug --host 127.0.0.1 --port 14001 --plugin contrib.dummy_plugin start

# Use multiple plugins - run in the order of arguments
$ mongo-mail-server --server --plugin myplugin1 --plugin myplugin2 ...

SMTP Tests - With Telnet

# Use 172.17.42.1 is binding of docker0 else:
$ mms_ip=$(docker inspect -f '{{.NetworkSettings.IPAddress}}' mms)

$ telnet $mms_ip 14001

Tips

SMTP timeout

Use MMS_TIMEOUT in environment or –timeout

Size of messages

Use MMS_DATA_SIZE_LIMIT in environment or –data-size-limit

Open Message with Python

>>> import os, zlib, base64
>>> from pprint import pprint as pp
>>> from email.parser import Parser, HeaderParser
>>> from pymongo import MongoClient
>>> from gridfs import GridFS
>>> client = MongoClient(os.environ.get('MMS_MONGODB_URI'))
>>> db = client['message']
>>> col = db['message']
>>> doc = col.find_one()
>>> fs = GridFS(db)
>>> msg_base64 = fs.get(doc['message']).read()
>>> msg_string = zlib.decompress(base64.b64decode(msg_base64))
>>> msg = Parser().parsestr(msg_string)
>>> msg
<email.message.Message instance at 0x7ff5e4054560>
