Here is what i do: make clean make makefiles CCARGS='-DEF_CONFIG_DIR="/opt/product/postfix-2.6.5/etc"


make install then i got this error: postfix: fatal: chdir(/usr/libexec/postfix): No such file or directory make: *** [install] Error 1 I don't understand why it's checking the usr/libexec folder for the daemons although I've set the folder to /opt/product/postfix-2.6.5/libexec in the makefile.

CentOS 5 :: Switch From The Default Sendmail To Postfix Doing A Yum Install Postfix On 5.2

Dec 12, 2008

I have isntalled a server with Centos 5.2 OS, now I would like to switch from the default sendmail to postfix doing a yum install postfix I've noticed there is already available an rpm version for the OS but I would like to compile my own 2.5 version, I've noticed compiling from source does not allow me to use the mail switcher to tell to the system I'm gonna use Postfix instead of Sendmail as the default MTA while this is possible when I use the "official" rpm version of the package. Now my question is this, would this be a problem? There is some specific procedure/best practice I should follow? Or once compiled and configured Postfix I can safely disable/uninstall sendmail?

CentOS 5 :: Postfix Mail Server Will Not Start Tried To Change Postfix Smtp Port?

Oct 4, 2010

so i set out to change the default smtp port the server uses because my ISP blocks port 25 and i need the email to work in outlook. this morning i could receive email, but not send it. so i did some research and thought that i needed to edit the master.cf file in /etc/postfix/ by commenting out this line: smtp inet n - n - - smtpd -oand replace it with587 inet n - n - - smtpd (587 being the port i want to use)somewhere along the lines postfix server stopped running and now i cannot get it to start.if i try using SSH it crashes immediately and if i restart it in simple control panel nothing happens

Server :: Updated Postfix Not Running After Transferring Over Users From Older Postfix?

Feb 25, 2011

I recently moved over user from an old box running postfix(v 2.0.16) over to rhel 6 running postfix (v mail_version = 2.6.6). ive tried to make sure all the files are of correct permissions and that the main.cf file is configured corectly. However there is something wrong as when i run postfix: service postfix server i get no error but when checking the status:service postfix status i get: master dead but pid file exists Looking into /var/log/mailog i find this line being the issue:

Feb 25 16:24:39 puny1 postfix/master[3517]: fatal: fifo_listen: create fifo public/pickup: Permission denied

I gather this is a file permission issue and ive tried to make sure the public folder in /var/spool/postfix is correctly set but still no avail.

Programming :: Conversion From Infix To Postfix And Compilation Of Postfix For Eval

May 11, 2010

I was trying to write a graph plotting program with c++. I need to convert the infix expression from user to postfix expression for quick evaluation. However, the evaluation of postfix is kind of interpreted, and thus kind of slow for evaluating huge number of values. Say if I plot an implicit function the penalty is quite huge. Is there a way that I can compile the infix expression from my running graph plotting application for high speed evaluation.

Ubuntu Servers :: Make Logwatch (Postfix) Less Chatty?

Mar 12, 2010

Does anyone know the trick to getting Logwatch to make its entries a little less chatty and leave out the "Detailed" section of the Postfix report? I can't seem to tone it down and the daily reports I get include every recipient, host, etc., which is too much info to make a summary report useful.The first portion I get looks like this:

****** Summary *************************************************

9 *Warning: Pre-queue content-filter connection overload
2 SASL authentication failed
432 Miscellaneous warnings[code]....

This would be fine for a quick review that I do first thing. However,the "Detailed" portion that follows is over 2,800 lines long!

Ubuntu :: Fatal - Postfix Command Reserved For Superuser

Dec 30, 2010

I'm trying to change the owner of a /var/www/example/var I've changed all the /var content (chown www-data /var instead of chown www-data var ). I tried executing chown root /var, but now I have problems with Postfix...

In my webpages I use different commands to send mails:
- The phpMailer class
- The mail() command
The phpmailer is working, but not mail()

When I try mail() I've these messages in /var/log/mail.log:
Dec 30 09:42:31 zeus postfix[3829]: error: to submit mail, use the Postfix sendmail command
Dec 30 09:42:31 zeus postfix[3829]: fatal: the postfix command is reserved for the superuser
Terminal mail command is not working either.

In my /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini I've this configuration:
[mail function]
; For Win32 only.
; [URL]
;SMTP = localhost
; http://php.net/smtp-port
;smtp_port = 25
; For Win32 only.
; [URL]
;sendmail_from = dstreich.girona.ics@gencat.cat
; For Unix only. You may supply arguments as well (default: "sendmail -t -i").
; [URL]
sendmail_path = /usr/sbin/postfix
I also tried sendmail -t -i without luck.

Ubuntu Servers :: Install Postfix In Order To User Squirrelmail Or Roundcube?

Nov 20, 2010

I'm configuring a server but at this time I can't send mail. I tried using the PHP mail() function and it didn't work. Webmin says I have no mail configured. I'll be the only user and mail recipient. I've used Squirrelmail and Roundcube before and liked them.

Do I need to install Postfix in order to user Squirrelmail or Roundcube? How should I set up mail?

Here's my setup:

10.04 LTS Server edition
Webmin 1.520
Apache 2.x
MySQL 5.x

I am trying out few stuff with Linux and Windows. I have a 'Postfix' mail server on CentOS 5.5 with 'dovecot' and 'squirrel' (webmail) working fine. I am just wondering, how can I create bulk mailboxes on CentOS 5.5 (for postscript) so that the the users can access their mail from the browser (squirrel mail)?

How can I integrate with Active Directory? I am also looking for techniques to automatically create bulk users (for example 100 users) on Active Directory with a default passwords (or random passwords if possible) that integrate with Postfix.

Ubuntu Servers :: Postfix: How To Get The Configuration

I have followed the following configuration guide to install the system with dovecot, sasl smtpd authentication, and postfix as an mta: [URL](I know it says it's a debian configuration, but it seemed legitimate that I could follow it). Anyway, in sending email from my primary email account, I have found that roughly 1/2 of the messages are delivered, and 1/2 of them are rejected with a message similar to the following:

Server :: Postfix Setup - Make Own Email Addresses

May 14, 2011

It wasn't too long ago that I discovered Linux/Ubuntu (in terms of actually USING it) and I've been completely blown away by the capabilities it puts in the user's hands! To think that someone can take an old desktop from a trash pile (literally, in my case) and turn it into a web server for ZERO dollars is absolutely crazy.

Anyway, I've been using said desktop as a sort of "dummy" machine to learn Linux. I want to be clear that I've got another computer for personal use and that I understand that setting up server software on any computer poses a security risk. Having said that, I have a few questions regarding mail servers and their setup on Ubuntu. Again - I'm comfortable with what I've done so far in Ubuntu (installing packages, terminal interaction, basic usage)

My question is mainly this: if you have, say, a domain name through DynDNS (let's say example123.com) and it points to an Ubuntu system, does something like Postfix enable you to make your own email addresses such as user1@example123.com and have an email server from wherever the Ubuntu system is?

I've been following the basic Postfix setup here and have had success so far (down to the "Adding your local domains to postfix" section) bu wanted to make sure that what I'm intending to do is what I'm doing (haha... i hope that makes sense). That is: get domain name at DynDNS, host pages on LAMPP server, use Postfix to facilitate incoming/outgoing email for that domain name.

I have installed ubuntu server 9.04 and want to send emails from my server for which I've configured postfix. But I dont know what to do next.

My questions are:

1. Do i need to install DNS server for using postfix? If not, what should I install to send emails from this server?

2. Do I need to forward any particular port in my router?

3. If I dont have a fully qualified domain, what are the configurations I need to do to send emails?

Ubuntu Servers :: Postfix Mail Goes In Junkmail?

Mar 15, 2010

I use Ubuntu Server 9.10 64bit

at first, sendmail was installed and everything was working great. all the email sent from forum and webform I host as been sent correctly in the reception box of the recipient. But I want postfix as MTA to do my delivery to all my virtual domain I host.

when sendmail is uninstalled and postfix installed and all services configured(php included) and restarted(apache included), when I send a email from command line or from web form, the email goes in junk mail for some ISP email address and for gmail and the email did'nt show at all for hotmail. but email sent from forum (phpbb) still goes in reception box like normal email do.

I tried do change the headers, who was working with sendmail, of the email sent from web form without success.

so I tried to uninstall postfix and reinstall sendmail, restarted all service and every thing was back to normal... email sent goes in reception box.

I tried it twice.... sendmail, postfix, sendmail, postfix and now back to sendmail for a working solution until I get postfix working.

I tried with spf entry in my dns, I tried allowed icmp packet from outside with iptables, I tried many different headers for my email. My ip is not blacklisted anywhere.

myhostname = mail.example.com
mydomain = example.com

I'm getting a 553 From address not verified. I have tried what it suggested from the URL link, but it still doesn't work.

Ubuntu Servers :: Postfix SMTP Not Working

Apr 7, 2010

I've got a server running 9.10, and I'm having a few issues with SMTP. It's got Postfix and Dovecot installed, and eventually I'll add content filtering, but I need to get past this issue first.

I know there's a lot of posts out there for Postfix issues, but I haven'tbeen able to find one specific to my issue.

IMAP and POP3 work fine through SSL, and the server can send mail without any problems. That's all fine and dandy, but I need to utilize an e-mail client (like evolution or outlook). Everytime I set up a user in Evolution, the smtp connection times out, or is refused. I know it's not a firewall issue. Port 25 is open, as well as 465. So I should be able to connect through SSL. I want to be able to connect through SMTP using the same credentials as IMAP.

Here's my main.cf file:

myhostname = mail.adamwgay.com
alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases
alias_database = hash:/etc/aliases
myorigin = /etc/mailname


everytime I get things rolling, this issue pops up. I don't know if it's something I'm setting up wrong in the client, or if it's a configuration error on my part in postfix.

I'm also having a bit of an issue with my aliases. I've basically got a lot of addresses going to root, then root going to the main user, but it's not actually delivering the mail to the main user. It sends it straight to root.
