The mail system is still behaving the same way: mail -s command still sends to some wierd recipients.

Also Courier IMAP doesn't seem to be connecting to anything either when I try to login with Squirrelmail, it says: Connection Dropped by IMAP Server

I whish I could just remove Postfix and re-install it, however it's tied into important applications which will be removed aswell and since backuppc is in the middle of a backup I really don't want to touch it or anything else like logcheck either.

Have a look at http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/ap....html#s-remove

Looks to me like you can just remove all those packages then reinstall and the configs will still be there so long as you don't use -purge.

That is true as I've come accross this situation many time! However I don't know if that will sort my issue as APT already removed Postfix when I mistakenly installed sendmail-mta. Of course I re-installed Postfix but still results are the same

So what can I do now without re-installing the operating system on the server??

You shouldn't need to reinstall the OS.

Did you remove sendmail-mta?

Can you resend a message to someone (let's make it root)

Copy and paste:

echo "test" | mail -s test -c "" root

And show the logs

The answer is yes I removed it, I think it was top of page 2 don't know what the post number is now, with Mr C. saying to re-install Postfix.

Output of mail log is now:

Are you wanting to run chrooted?

hmm good question!

My other implementation is configured with an n under chrooted, however I don't know exactly if it runs as a chroot.

As when we had our marathon with my DNS which was run as chroon, we mod'ed the directory structure run by the system, so / became .....<path to chroot>/

My Postfix main server is not working that way, even thought chroot enabled so I don't know if I am or not??

Here is the master.cf of the working server to compare:

Code:
#
# Postfix master process configuration file.  For details on the format
# of the file, see the master(5) manual page (command: "man 5 master").
#
# ==========================================================================
# service type  private unpriv  chroot  wakeup  maxproc command + args
#               (yes)   (yes)   (yes)   (never) (100)
# ==========================================================================
smtp      inet  n       -       n       -       -       smtpd
#submission inet n       -       -       -       -       smtpd
#  -o smtpd_enforce_tls=yes
#  -o smtpd_sasl_auth_enable=yes
#  -o smtpd_client_restrictions=permit_sasl_authenticated,reject

With regards to directly answering your question, if Postfix can work as is it would be great however if not then I will make the necessary adjustments to get it working!

Also I haven't added the amavis stuff as something Mr C. said last time about trying to solve one problem at a time and taking small steps, so even though am enthusiastic and want to do everything at once I'm trying to take a more diciplined approach this time to make life easier.

I just installed postfix on a debian box and it ran fine.

When you installed postfix, did it run through a setup utility for you?

The same thing with my mail server Postfix runs fine and works great. The only issue with my main server is that I had Exim in there before, then we switched to Exim-heavy then after that Citadel groupware suite and after removing Citadel I want to get Postfix in there as I like it and it will take up less resources then Citadel; but also it already runs on my mail server.

Yes to your question, it did run through the setup and after running dpkg-reconfigure postfix I can get back to that setup. Which I've already attempted yesterday I think.

However same result always the system just doesn't wana work?

Oh for heavens sake!!!!

Just remembered I had a .forward file left over from the Exim config........ :0

This is the reason I stopped using Exim in the first place as that file kept sending replies to everybody endlessly and I ended up with major complaints about them.

I just recieved my very first email!

I am gona keep trying to test the config to see if it is actually 100% or just teasing me and will reply with the outcome.

Ok well all seems good so far apart from I can't login via Squirrelmail; it keeps saying that IMAP server dropped the connection??

I am going to have a go at re-configuring it and again will post result back here!

Ok tried re-configuring squirrelmail but all my settings seem ok and Courier looks ok too in comparison with the working model.

Any ideas??
