Emails suddenly not working -- centos3 and ispconfig
 
Besides adding new clients we have not changed any setting on our ispconfig server running on centos 3. We are getting reports that people are not receiving any email. They dont send through us so outgoing mail is fine.

Does anyone know of any centos updates that could have caused the postfix/dovecot services to stop responding. According to ispconfig the services are running fine. I will continue to investigate but any help appreciated.

Any errors in the mail.log file. Please check with:

df -h

That you have enough space on your harddisk and check the user and website quotas.

HI all,

Ok found the probelm. Someone had created a domain with the name http://www

This was made as an entry into /etc/postfix/local-domain-names which caused postfix to fail on start up. I edited the entry out of /etc/postfix/local-domain-names and all seems to be working now.
