Thank God I stumbled onto your website. I have installed Postfix because my ISP keeps screwing up with my mail server. I have my own domain name registration but whenever I try and start Postfix from: /sbin/service postfix start I get an error msg which states that the service has FAILED.
The main.cf file is listed below. I've reloaded the file but I cannot start Postfix. WHAT I need to be able to do is for mail sent to my domain name to end up in my new server. Do I need to download IMAP also? If so, where do I get a copy from, what version?
Any help would be much appreciated. I have removed Sendmail usring rpm -e and moved the configuration files somewhere else.
with much thanks. JM

Within main.cf, I have specified my relayhost as my gateway/router ip addr. I am now guessing this is wrong because the log says "connection refused." What should this parameter be and how can I ensure that I am able to receive and send mail inside and out of my network?
