Re-install postifx etc
Hi folks.

I seem to be getting more and more problems with sending email (probably a SASL issue) and getting spam filtering working correctly. I'm running Ubuntu onieric, or how ever you spell it :D and ISPConfig (latest update). The original install was done with the perfect server instructions.

Anyway, I've got to the point where I suspect the only thing I can do is to re-install postfix, courier and the other bits that make up the entire SMTP/POP3 system.

So, my questions are:
  • Is there a definitive answer to the SASL problem?
  • How the hell do I get spam filtering working correctly?
  • And if I can't fix the problems, how do I do re-install those bits without re-installing the entire server?

Thankies. :)

What error messages do you get? Are there any errors in /var/log/mail.log?
