...connect to transport amavis: Connection refused
1 Attachment(s)

I have installed ispconfig on a Ubuntu 9.04 server.

I followed the installation procedure found here.

The problem:

I was not able to have mails sent out from my mail server when sent from another machine.

Receiving emails was not an issue.
Last week I started to play around with the configs. Either through the
Ispconfig web interface or directly on postfix using webmin.

The issue today, what I need to have resolved:

Currently I have 700+ emails stuck in cue that can't be delivered.

The log file in ispconfig says:

- in Mail warn-Log:
Aug 18 18:05:57 ubuntu2 postfix/qmgr[18688]: warning: connect to transport amavis: Connection refused

- in Mail-Log:
Aug 18 19:54:27 ubuntu2 postfix/error[23637]: BD2B0166291: to=, relay=none, delay=278219, delays=278213/5.7/0/0.12, dsn=4.3.0, status=deferred (mail transport unavailable)

I attach my and + postconf -n and netstat -l for reference if needed.

Thank you in advance for your help and suppoort.

Using webmin on a ispconfig server often breaks the setup. Do you made a backup of the postfix config files before you edited them?

Hi Till,
Thank you for your reply.

No, I have not made a backup of the files, but renamed the modified ones and retrieved the original ones that are automatically backed by the system.

I have to say, that I played around late last night and got it working now.

I now will have to compare all log files and config files to see what was wrong.

Thank you for your help.
