system won't send emails, postfix installed but not starting.
I'm having trouble with postfix on my debian 6 server. Emails didn't get sent, no matter what I did. I've tried uninstalling postfix and using sendmail instead, with no better result. Of course the server is connected to the internet ;-)
Now I'm back trying with postfix but for some reason, even though when I do /etc/init.d/postfix start it says "Starting Postfix Mail Transport Agent: postfix.", when I do "/etc/init.d/postfix reload" it says "Reloading Postfix configuration...postfix/postfix-script: fatal: the Postfix mail system is not running failed."
Sendmail is now completely uninstalled.
Uninstalling/reinstalling/reconfiguring postfix didn't help.
How do I get postfix to start?
