Setting up Mail server for Local Network


hi,
I m trying to setup mail server on RedHat Linux 9.
Installed PostFix and configured the main.cf in /etc/postfix/.
Since i m going to use it for Local Network so i want domain as dee.com.

Here is what i have configured....

INTERNET HOST AND DOMAIN NAMES


myhostname = host.dee.com

mydomain = dee.com


SENDING MAIL

myorigin=$mydomain


RECEIVING MAIL

inet_interfaces = 192.168.0.33

mydestination = 192.168.0.33

mynetworks = 192.168.0.0/24, 127.0.0.0/8


INTERNET OR INTRANET

relayhost = [192.168.0.33]

Note : 192.168.0.33 is my machine/server's IP

now the problem comes when i start the PostFix.

when i write postfix start in the terminal it shows :
postfix/postfix-script: starting the Postfix mail system

No errors anything and cursor moves to next line [root@dee postfix]#

and when i try to reload postfix..then it shows error saying :
postfix/postfix-script: fatal: the Postfix mail system is not running

I m worried that something is wrong with the configuration.
Let me know if u want me to attach main.cf also.
And if anyone knows better sofware for intranet mailing then pls suggest the names.

regards
Deep

Isn't going to solve anything probably but is that 192.168.0.0/300 , the 300 part a typing error? Should be 24 or 16?

mynetworks = 192.168.0.0/300, 127.0.0.0/8

I can just about guarantee though if you do a search you'll come up with example configuration files posted by people that weren't working and have subsequently been fixed which you can compare against for the moment.
