BARIS is now a mail exchanger for the earlham.edu domain.
BARIS is running Sendmail 8.12.10 with the same MIMEDefang milter as KE. With this, we should be able to both host a mail exchanger and have it run extremely strict spam and virus checks at the same time. Unlike KE, BARIS is running the open source ClamAV antivirus program. As this program is able to run in a daemon mode, it is scanning for viruses much more quickly than Vexira on KE.
BARIS is also set up to use STARTTLS and AUTH, allowing it to be used as a secure mail relay for mail clients. Like KE, it is accessible on both the standard SMTP port (25) and the submission port (587), with the latter requiring authentication.Posted by Rowan Littell at February 12, 2004 03:03 PM
