Question SYSadmin installed postfix, now sendmail sends to qmail not postfix. Why?


Hi

Recently after a server chrash our qmail stopped responding, we hired a sysadmin as i have very little experience in this field.

He stopped the qmail service and reconfigured the server to use postfix dovecot and usr accounts to get the emails working again, however sendmail tries to send via qmail and recieves the following log for domains on that server only.

Code:
Nov 18 15:53:32 cl-t048-481cl qmail-queue-handlers[13621]: Handlers Filter before-queue for qmail started ...
Nov 18 15:53:32 cl-t048-481cl qmail-queue-handlers[13621]: from=isk8board@mac.com
Nov 18 15:53:32 cl-t048-481cl qmail-queue-handlers[13621]: to=info@revivedesigns.com
Nov 18 15:53:32 cl-t048-481cl qmail-queue-handlers[13621]: hook_dir = '/usr/local/psa/handlers/before-queue'
Nov 18 15:53:32 cl-t048-481cl qmail-queue-handlers[13621]: recipient[3] = 'info@revivedesigns.com'
Nov 18 15:53:32 cl-t048-481cl qmail-queue-handlers[13621]: handlers dir = '/usr/local/psa/handlers/before-queue/recipient/info@revivedesigns.com'
Nov 18 15:53:32 cl-t048-481cl qmail-queue-handlers[13621]: starter: submitter[13622] exited normally
You can see the server attempts to use qmail and not postfix, how can i configure sendmail to use postfix for all domains?

It looks like you use plesk, where qmail is the default mta. Take a look at this post to see how to clean handlers and at this howto to see what was needed to be done in order to switch from qmail to postfix in plesk.
