Hi,

You've got an error concerning your transport file. Apparently you didn't run the postmap command to create the database. Have you set up a transport file and forgot to run the portmap command? If so, run this:
Code:
sudo postmap /etc/postfix/transport
and restart postfix with
Code:
sudo /etc/init.d/postfix restart
Then try to send a mail again.

Kind regards,

Eric

Hi,

I did run the portmap command earlier, but i got postmap: warning: /etc/postfix/transport, line 1: expected format: key whitespace value:

When i tried to run it again, i also got the same thing:

Code:
xanios@ubuntu:~$ sudo postmap /etc/postfix/transport
[sudo] password for xanios: 
postmap: warning: /etc/postfix/transport, line 1: expected format: key whitespace value
Code:
xanios@ubuntu:~$ tail -n 100 /var/log/mail.log

Hi,

Did you run the postmap command for the password file also? In order to make the password file readable by postfix you need to do that too.
Code:
sudo postmap /etc/postfix/sasl_passwd
All files that you create like password files, transport file and so on, that are referred to in your main.cf need to go through the postmap command in order to create a database file readable by postfix.

After running the command above, restart postfix with:
Code:
sudo /etc/init.d/postfix restart
and try again to send a mail. Post output of the log file (last 20 lines or so) right after sending the mail.

Kind regards,

Eric

Hi,

thank you for your patience

i did run both for the sasl_passwd and transport

Code:
postmap sasl_passwd
no issue for this

but when i tried

Code:
xanios@ubuntu:~$ sudo postmap /etc/postfix/sasl_passwd
[sudo] password for xanios: 
postmap: fatal: open /etc/postfix/sasl_passwd: No such file or directory
Are both commands the same?


the mail log:

Code:
xanios@ubuntu:~$ mail -s "test mail" -v xanios@gmail.com
test
Cc: 
Mail Delivery Status Report will be mailed to <xanios>.
xanios@ubuntu:~$ tail -n 20 /var/log/mail.log

Ya, i want to send emails to gmail.
I've already created CA Certificate to work with Gmail using the help of this link:
http://prantran.blogspot.com/2007/01...untu-with.html

So, sending to Gmail should be no problem i guess?

Hi,

Let me ask you first: Do you need the transport file? I assume you don't since apparently you only use this server with Nagios. the transport file is used to route emails for specific domains to other servers. If you don't need it just comment out the line in the main.cf file and restart postfix.

The format for the transport file is:
Code:
domain.com smtp:[10.1.1.50]
or
Code:
domain.com smtp:smtpserver.destinationdomain.com
Kind regards,

Eric

Hi,

Where is the sasl_passwd located? It has to be in the location you indicated in the main.cf file. If it's not then move it there and run the postmap command. If your main.cf file points to /etc/postfix/sasl_passwd for the password file and the file sasl_passwd is in your home directory then it will not work.

Check where the file is and adjust where necessary, then run the postmap command accordingly with the correct path/filename, restart postfix and try again.

And don't worry about my patience, I have tons of it

Kind regards,

Eric

Hi,

So i comment out this:

Code:
#transport_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/transport
I stored sasl_passwd in sudo vi sasl_passwd

Code:
[smtp.gmail.com]:587             xanios@gmail.com:p@55w0rd
in my main.cf, i had this:

Code:
smtp_sasl_password_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/sasl_passwd
Quote:

How to check whether sasl_passwd is in my home directory?

Add on: OK, so since in main.cf it is written as "/etc/postfix/sasl_passwd",
i "sudo vi /etc/postfix/sasl_passwd" first,
after that, i add inside /etc/postfix/sasl_passwd with this:

Code:
[smtp.gmail.com]:587             xanios@gmail.com:p@55w0rd
Is that what you mean? Hope i didn't misunderstand what you're saying

How to check whether sasl_passwd is in my home directory?
Hi,

Run the following commands:
Code:
cd
to take you to your home directory.
Code:
ls -al | grep sasl
to list all files and permissions in your home directory (ls -al), but only show those that contain sasl in the name (grep sasl). Please post the output.

If the file sasl_passwd is in your home directory move it to the correct directory:
Code:
sudo mv sasl_passwd /etc/postfix/
If your user (xanios) is owner of the sasl_passwd file then change that:
Code:
sudo chown root:root /etc/postfix/sasl_passwd
Kind regards,

Eric
