postfix configuration issue
 
Hi all,

I installed postfix on a new box running Centos 5.x with webmin installed. I was having problems receiving email but not sending out email. So i edited this line

Code:

#inet_interfaces = all
#inet_interfaces = $myhostname
#inet_interfaces = $myhostname, localhost
inet_interfaces = localhost

When I did that restarted postfix and dovecot postfix failed to restart. When I checked in webmin I got this error

Code:

Error while checking current Postfix configuration. Please manually fix Postfix configuration.

postfix: fatal: chdir(/usr/libexec/postfix inet_interfaces = localhost): No such file or directory

So I set the configuration in main.cf back to the default but it still would not fix postfix.



Code:

I tried to stop sendmail and just have postfix start up but that did not work either

Code:

What's in /etc/postfix/main.cf and /etc/postfix/master.cf?
