ERROR: connect to mail.*******.com[*.*.*.*]:25: Connection refused


Postfix is set to listen on all interfaces with port 4011 yet I'm still getting this error saying connection refused on port 25. I'm at wits end and have been messing with this for nearly a week. Can anyone familiar with postfix or linux email servers point me in the right direction here?

netstat output

Code:
[root@******* postfix]# netstat -tnap

is postfix running?

This is basically a duplicate of your other post, or a continuation of the same problem.. No clue why you started a new thread.
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ion...-715349/

If you are listening on Port 4011, why would you expect to be able to connect to it on port 25 ?
Postfix is not listening on port 25 so that response would be correct.

I still think the resolution, already provided in your other thread, would resolve your issue.

Please close this thread. I reposted here because I thought it was a more appropriate forum for my problem. Please visit first thread if you have any help to give, as the issue is still unresolved. Thank you.
