Red face POSTFIX with VIRTUAL DOMAIN


Hi everyone,

I have tried to install Postfix with Virtual Domain on RHEL 5. i read some tutorial on internet but still i cant setup correctly. ..

I registered a domain name (sample.com) and point to our public IP Address. please give some tutorial on how to setup postfix with virtual domain.

Are there any good (detailed) tutorials on how to do this?



Regards,
Jonathan

Start here http://www.postfix.org/VIRTUAL_README.html then come back with some specific questions. As you will see, "Virtual Domains" can mean several things

Question 1 is how many domains are you hosting? If only one, do you need virtual domains at all?

You really haven't told us what isn't working.

Can you please give a detailed description of the problem you are having plus any entries to show what's going on.

Also please post the output of

postconf -n
