Lightbulb Postfix in easy steps

Make sure your sendmail server is running and working properly

It is very easy to configure postfix server for your server i am using RedHat 5.0.

#yum install postfix*

#vim /etc/postfix/

line no. 77 mydomain =
93 myorigin = $mydomain -----------uncomment this line
69 myhostname =
115 mydestination = $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain, localhost
(uncomment this line if it is commented)
225 mynetworks = (define your network here)
107 inet_interfaces = all (uncomment this line)

:wq! save and exit now

#yum install system-switch-mail*
and select MTA agent Postfix and ok

#service postfix start

Now u can send mail using postfix server by sandeeprhce5

sandeeprhce5, thanks for your post. Unfortunately this is a very old thread, so it maybe more helpful to focus on more recent threads. Thanks.
