Postfix can't receive emails from external domains
 
I'm very confused by this and need help.

I followed this guide to the wire: http://www.howtoforge.com/virtual-us...untu-12.04-lts

Everything works fine, except that I can't receive email from any source other than localhost (gmail, etc)

Here is my main.cf:


# See /usr/share/postfix/main.cf.dist for a commented, more complete version


# Debian specific: Specifying a file name will cause the first
# line of that file to be used as the name. The Debian default
# is /etc/mailname.
#myorigin = /etc/mailname

smtpd_banner = $myhostname ESMTP $mail_name (Ubuntu)
biff = no

# appending .domain is the MUA's job.
append_dot_mydomain = no

# Uncomment the next line to generate "delayed mail" warnings
#delay_warning_time = 4h

readme_directory = /usr/share/doc/postfix

# TLS parameters
smtpd_tls_cert_file = /etc/postfix/smtpd.cert
smtpd_tls_key_file = /etc/postfix/smtpd.key
smtpd_use_tls = yes

smtp_tls_session_cache_database = btree:${data_directory}/smtp_scache

# See /usr/share/doc/postfix/TLS_README.gz in the postfix-doc package for
# information on enabling SSL in the smtp client.

myhostname = mail.goldenoakit.com
alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases
myhostname = mail.goldenoakit.com

content_filter = amavis:[127.0.0.1]:10024
receive_override_options = no_address_mappings
content_filter = amavis:[127.0.0.1]:10024
receive_override_options = no_address_mappings


and here is my master.cf:

Why can't I receive external mail??

gscales 10th September 2012 22:09

Hi ansabhailte;

Can you also 1) attempt to send an email from another domain outside your network, then 2) include the output from tail -n 25 /var/log/mail.log ?

Also, the output from "netstat -tap" would be helpful.

G

You mean try to send an email from Gmail to my postfix?

The weird thing is that mail.log doesnt seem to record any errors, and mail.err has nothing relevant.

Forgot to add netstat -tap:

Hmm
 
I'm not sure if this has anything to do with it, but my hostname is nigel.goldenoakit.com and I also have mail.goldenoakit.com. I set up postfix to use mail, but do you think having that be different than the hostname would affect anything?

Hi ansabhailte;

I would use my actual hostname if I were you;

From your master.cf, above:

maildrop unix - n n - - pipe
flags=DRhu user=vmail argv=/usr/bin/maildrop -d ${recipient}

My maildrop line:

maildrop unix - n n - - pipe
flags=DRhu user=vmail argv=/usr/bin/maildrop -d vmail ${extension} ${recipient} ${user} ${nexthop} ${sender}

See the difference? I would put a space or two before the first character on every continuation line in that file, for one thing. In your log, you see the message come in, but don't see it delivered to a mailbox. Maybe it's reading that statement wrong?

G

ps ... this forum program is removing the leading space on the continuation line, so never mind on that. But still your maildrop line lacks all the vmail stuff ...

Now I'm getting this
 
Sep 10 13:06:08 nigel postfix/master[3040]: fatal: /etc/postfix/master.cf: line 98: bad transport type: user=vmail

from mail.log

ansabhailte 10th September 2012 23:19

This
 
It sounds like my problem is similar to this guys:

Hi guys,

after much pulling out (of grey hairs only), i finally realised this was a transport issue.
The transport data was being held in Mysql, and was not being resolved.

My best guess is that because i had smtp:mail.mydomain.com as the only transport it therefor wouldn't know about anything locally.

anyhow - all sorted now, will more on to more exciting things now

Thanks for the hand!

Grant


But I'm not sure how to go about fixing this.

I have been setting up email addresses like this through MySQL:

INSERT INTO `domains` (`domain`) VALUES ('example.com');
INSERT INTO `users` (`email`, `password`, `quota`) VALUES ('sales@example.com', ENCRYPT('secret'), 10485760);

Do I also need to add anything like this?:

INSERT INTO `transport` (`domain`, `transport`) VALUES ('example.com', 'smtp:mail.example.com');

ansabhailte 10th September 2012 23:40

ok
 
Disregard the last 3 replies. I didn't put white space in front of the line you gave me to replace. That's taken care of now.

Still can't receive email. Nothing shows up in the mail log either.

If you type in the command "mailq", does it show a bunch of stuff trapped in the queue? To me, the log seems to indicate the incomming mail is being queued but not delivered. If you use web mail and deliver it to another mail box at the same domain, does it deliver?
