Centos 4.8 Install of Postfix Virtual Users Courier etc... (not able to send local)
 
I am having having grave problems with now sending of local mail.

Ie when I try sending an email to say myusername from the logged in root user.

Ie '[root@server1 ~]# mailx myusername' says it went but nothing appears in the users mailbox in /var/spool/mail/root.

What do I have to do to get this working again?

Would it be secure enough maybe to send cronscript reports to an accessible mail user on my squirrelmail domain? (The domain I have running for access to users email accounts).

Any feedback is appreciated but I require this working please,
Jeremy.

PS I have tried using /etc/aliases but nothing works when I set those up, just nothing and I dont want to have to put in an instruction on my crontabs on each job to get it to send an email to that particular user, would be a real ballache!

double, triple, quadruple check the how-to for any typo's made, steps skipped, custom changes you made .. if you follow the how-to to the letter, everything WILL work.

I will go through the steps again, that I think may have caused this problem.

There's always some problem that arises for me lol.

Thanks for your help though much appreciated,
Jeremy

Hmm thats weird I am sure I didnt miss anything out.

Its working now though when I went over the steps at:

' Next we do some Postfix configuration. Go sure that you replace server1.example.com with a valid FQDN, otherwise your Postfix might not work properly! '

Weird eh?

Oh well anyways not complaining lol.

Cheers,
Jez.
