Mail flows freely when the ORF service stops - ORF Forums

Mail flows freely when the ORF service stops RSS Back to forum

1

Recently, the ORF service encountered and error and stopped on an edge server. ORF 5.5.1 running on Windows Server 2016 with the built-in SMTP service. I was able to start ORF without a problem, but while it was shutdown, email flowed freely through the server without any restrictions.

Is there a way to configure the server so all email is rejected if ORF is not running. I know I can write a script to check on the state of the ORF service, try to start it, and shut down SMTP if it will not start. It seems like a glaring security issue if the fail position is to allow all mail to flow.

Thanks

@luis.botero: Hello Luis,

If the ORF service is stopped, there is no way for ORF to apply a default policy to incoming emails. The question here is why the ORF service has stopped in the first place. Please send us (to ) the ORF configuration (orfent.ini) and log file from the day of the incident (e.g. orfee-2018-08-24.log), along with the export of the Windows Event - Application - logs for analysis (Run > eventvwr.msc > Windows Logs > right-click "Application" > Save all events as). The requested ORF files can be found in the ORF program directory. Default path: \Program Files (x86)\ORF Fusion.

Thank you!
