Hey there,

I'm looking for some help with my Postfix installation on my SUSE machine.

Now, before I get too far, I want to say that this is SLES (v10 SP1), not openSUSE. I don't have paid support on the product (only updates - can't afford anything more right now). I have already posted on the Postfix mailing list, the Novell forums and They've all pointed me here. If posting here is inappropriate, let me know.

I have a Postfix + Cyrus + Amavis + SpamAssassin + ClamAV setup. It works really well, except that I'm unable to tune my mime_checks and body_checks like I want because Postfix is retorting that it doesn't support PCRE.

In other words, I do 'postconf -m' and pcre isn't in that list. Regexp (POSIX regular expressions) is, but that doesn't help me. PCRE is preferred (not only by me, but by the Postfix community).

I have verified I have PCRE installed (Yast shows they're there anyway). I also checked the SLES Postfix rpm. Under the "Provides:" section it shows "". So I'm a bit confused.

If the openSUSE and SLES are similar enough (which I'm hoping they are), maybe there is a SUSE-related issue that is preventing Postfix from offering perl compatible regular expressions.

That's odd, mime_header_checks works fine on my servers, either the pcre or regexp variety, on boxes running opensuse 10.x, SLES 9 and SLES 10.

Are you running the package that shipped with SLES? ISTR that worked just fine, but on most of my servers I've built postfix 2.4.5 from the 10.3 source rpms, since it has some cool new features.

Is there anything customized about your postfix install? Feel free to send us the output of postfinger for analysis (you might want to sanitize any confidential company info first)


I'm using the RPMs that came with SLES. The only custom compiling I've done is with ProFTPd, which didn't seem to ship with SLES (which I find mighty odd).
