What is Mail Service for?

Post by raffe » September 14th, 2018, 1:05 pm


;D I got the Mail Service to work, the Send test mail button sends a e-mail to me. I even wrote in the Wiki about it https://wiki.ipfire.org/configuration/system/start

??? But what does it do? Can I choose its behavior somewhere? I cant find anything about it (I found two links in https://forum.ipfire.org/viewtopic.php?t=15140#p91414 , but they are dead).

For wiki links that do not work: I found removing the /en from the URL gets you to the correct URL.

https://wiki.ipfire.org/en/optimization/scripts becomes https://wiki.ipfire.org/optimization/scripts

https://wiki.ipfire.org/en/optimization ... info/start becomes https://wiki.ipfire.org/optimization/sc ... info/start

Sorry I cannot answer about Mail Service. I've always wondered the same thing!

It's used if you've got WIO sending you emails when systems go on/offline.

My automatic Snort rule update script also uses it.

It may be used for other things as well, but these are the ones I know about.
