dear Sandeep B.

how are you ?
I have had a problem for a few days with my emails.
I am receiving an email from my own email account

I have configured

My host has:
rDns Ok
dkim: ok
spf: ok
Dmarc: Ok
Ip: Ok

when looking at the headers I noticed that the ip is not from my server.

I don't know what I should do to stop these scam emails from arriving.


Thank You.


the scam email is the following

The first thing I did was change passwords and scan for viruses. For caution

but I think this is not due to malware, but due to configuration

It will be necessary to deactivate php mail

because these emails are Phishing.

These days I was finding out about spoofing and why these emails were arriving in my inbox and I realized that in Postfix I was missing some configurations and I added this configuration



# Sender restrictions:
smtpd_sender_restrictions =

Now these spoofing emails reach SPAM

I wish this thread could be left open for future errors.

And if you could help us, what configurations are recommended for Postfix?


Thank You Sandeep B.
