Why iRedmail generates a new jail.local ? But none of those jails in jail.local are present in the iptables. Please explain. Thanks.

Re: jail.local

You restarted iptables service, then all chains created by Fail2ban were gone.
Restarting Fail2ban service will create them.

Yes, I know that. But my question is why iRedmail creates a jail.local ? The already existing jail.conf is enough right ?

Is it for introducing some additional functionality ?

Re: jail.local

Jail.local contains user customizations. Read its manual page first please:

$ man 5 jail.conf

or reading comment in file "jail.conf" itself is ok.
