postfix courier not running in ssl mode?
i followed your instructions a few months ago, and everything was fine, now i have the problem that it seems my postfix is not running in ssl mode, recent things i did was i updated from suse 9.3 to suse 10.0 and after the update courier dissapeared, i reinstalled courier and it seemed to work fine, but later i realized that its not running on ssl, additional to this i was not able to bring my machine online for about 7 days because i had within the update also a network error, where i realized at the end that one port of my hardware router has a hardware problem, my biggest concern is im blacklisted in SORBS, and when i try to mail to some providers it doesnt work i get the message

server refused to talk to me: 554-{mx005} Your address is listed as dynamic on SORBS (  554 We are currently not accepting connections from such hosts.  (port 25)
within that there comes more trouble, my isp canceled my internet connection officially 2 months ago, fact is the connection still works and thats why i cant contact my isp to ask to whitelist me, so the question is also, i tried to request at SORBS to whitelist me, but the think what im concerned about is, because i realized it after i requested SORBS to whitelist me, will SORBS contact my isp? if so then i will lose my free connection, and maybe be in trouble, and if so, can i cancel the whitelist request somehow at SORBS?

thank you in advance

No offense, but I think this is one of the most ridiculous support requests I've ever heard of. ;)

I would recommend paying for your internet connection... and then asking for support that your entitled to... otherwise your beating a horse that can't really be beaten... or, eh something.

I suppose the term "you can't have your cake and eat it too" sort of fits.

Can you post your postfix config "/etc/postfix/"... you should have something similar to:


smtpd_tls_auth_only = no
smtpd_use_tls = yes
smtpd_enforce_tls = no
smtp_tls_note_starttls_offer = yes
smtpd_tls_cert_file = /etc/ssl/certs/
smtpd_tls_key_file = /etc/ssl/keys/
