I am a newbie... I have installed Ubuntu server 8.0.4 and had no problem with the installation. The web server and webmin work flawlessly.
I also installed Postfix for a mail server. I have a good MX record at my ISP, I can send out through the internet but when I receive mail (internet or local) it just hangs in the queue. In other words it won't delivery it to the mailbox directories for the users.
I have been through my config file several times but being a newbie I can't find my mistake.
could the problem be the mailbox command?
copy of my config below
# See /usr/share/postfix/main.cf.dist for a commented, more complete version
# Debian specific: Specifying a file name will cause the first
# line of that file to be used as the name. The Debian default
# is /etc/mailname.
myorigin = $mydomain
proxy_interfaces = 18.104.22.168
smtpd_banner = $myhostname ESMTP $mail_name (Ubuntu)
biff = no
# appending .domain is the MUA's job.
# Uncomment the next line to generate "delayed mail" warnings
delay_warning_time = 1m
