Phishing URL:


Please note in above you must have valid reply to email address, your campaign number might be different. never host your phishing website on same domain, it will cause your phishing frenzy admin portal to go down. also your FQDN must be specified correctly.


This is where is struggled alot, i choose to use gmail first then, clearly it does not work anymore because emails coming from gmail will be ignored in companies, next option is to use sendgrid, it work perfect, but only problem is lot of firewalls will block these because of advertisement spam, that leaves us with either buying domain from godaddy or register free email account for work from google and finally setting my own email server. last option looks good to me. i am a bit of control freak you can say i would like all things in my control, so i can create any number of email accounts i i want i choose to go with custom email server. following are our setting. for setting up custom mail server follow post one create mail server record, go to iredmail, install it in new droplet, simple. 

following are our SMTP settings.

pre poulate : select or none

SMTP outbound server :

SNOT domain :

SMTP Authentication : login

SMTP username:

SMTP password: yourpassword

openssl verify mode: VERIFY_NONE

enable ssl tls authomatically : yes (or check box)

SMTP port : 587

when you install SMTP server in subdomain using iredmail everything will be installed default. just make sure you have this one following setting.

go to /etc/postfix/ file and add your phishing frenzy ip address to mynetworks as following


These are the only important steps you need to perform, rest all is very gerneric, if you want to deploy your campaing on ssl then make sure to generate certificate and submit to your favourite CA, it will give you vrt files which you then in return will upload it to phishing frenszy, it works spot on and doesnt require much effort. let me know how does it work for you.
