my question is what the configuration which i have to do to create my own mail server
the first step which to install postfix and its already done
and i had set my parameters in main.cf but there are some error
so any one have this step then i can retry
I doubt that anyone will be able to help until you give some information on what you have changed in the configuration, what error messages did show up on the command-line and/or logfiles, etc.
Is it a local setup between a Linux and Windows computer? Is your mailserver online? Has the ISP assigned the DNS MX record properly? What makes you think that the problem is due to the postfix configuration?
Other than that, for a functional email-server it is entirely irrelevant if the client is Microsoft Outlook or something else.
how can you stop or restart something that is already stopped??? you can start something that's stopped, i'm used to that, but stopping a stopped thing, that would require some quantum fiddling or something for that to make any sense.
firstly i want to set up a small mail server for my test, the first step i install postfix, then edit /etc/postfix/main.cf
to but my parameters.
after i save and start the postfix its already run but later i can not stop or restart or reload postfix
and when i check the status the message display is master (pid 2860) is running
this is my problem
i can not complete the configuration and start the local mail server up
