Postfix configuration


I am trying to configure Postfix following these instructions under Webmin.
When I try to reload postfix it says "Reloading Configuration -- Fail"

Here is my /etc/postfix/main.cf I have changed my actual domain to mydomain.net for security on upload to LQ.

What is wrong with it?

# 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 = /etc/mailname

smtpd_banner = $myhostname ESMTP $mail_name (Ubuntu)
biff = no

# appending .domain is the MUA's job.
append_dot_mydomain = no

# Uncomment the next line to generate "delayed mail" warnings
#delay_warning_time = 4h

readme_directory = no

# TLS parameters
smtpd_tls_cert_file=/etc/ssl/certs/ssl-cert-snakeoil.pem
smtpd_tls_key_file=/etc/ssl/private/ssl-cert-snakeoil.key
smtpd_use_tls=yes
smtpd_tls_session_cache_database = btree:${data_directory}/smtpd_scache
smtp_tls_session_cache_database = btree:${data_directory}/smtp_scache

# See /usr/share/doc/postfix/TLS_README.gz in the postfix-doc package for
# information on enabling SSL in the smtp client.

myhostname = mail.mydomain.net
mydomain = mydomain.net
alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases
alias_database = hash:/etc/aliases
myorigin = nerciadragon.net
mydestination = mail.mydomain.net, mydomain.net
relayhost =
mynetworks = 127.0.0.0/8, 192.168.2.160/24
mailbox_command = procmail -a "$EXTENSION"
mailbox_size_limit = 0
recipient_delimiter = +
inet_interfaces = all
inet_protocols = all

Sending us the logs generated by postfix - usually called /var/log/maillog or /var/log/mail; the exact pathname is defined in the /etc/syslog.conf file - would greatly help us to debug your problem.

Thanks for the reply. I have just installed Ubuntu server 12.04 so I am setting things up again. I am looking for something easier than postfix.
