Logging SMTP connections in Firewall logs
« on: May 09, 2018, 04:10:23 pm »
I am trying to see connections made for SMTP in the firewall logs. I have enabled the firewall log sent myself an email from external account but there are no entries in the logs for port 25 or the sending mail server.

Firewall logs normally log dropped/rejected packets as a standard. You should see e-mails by locking at the Mail logs (assuming it is enabled), or you can monitor /var/log/mail.log to see connections made to your mail server. mail.log will show all connections to ports 25, 587, as well as IMAP and POP connections.
