set squirrel mail to use postfix

hi there,

i'm trying to get squirrel mail to use postfix so when a message is sent it goes via the 'local_recipient_maps' option in postfix first. but in the 'config/' there is only an option of sendmail/SMTP i've set it to use SMTP, but that has no effect.

has anyone tried to do this before, if so, please help.

I use squirrel mail with FC3.

I simply edited the following lines in /etc/squirrelmail/config.php :

$useSendmail            = true;
$smtpServerAddress      = 'localhost';
$smtpPort               = 25;
$sendmail_path          = '/usr/sbin/sendmail';
NOTE: /usr/sbin/sendmail is linked to the postfix sendmail command. Using the FC3 distro, this link should be pointing to /etc/alternatives/mta; which is then linked to /usr/sbin/sendmail.postfix. If its not, run "system-switch-mail" and select postfix.
