Issues with Postfix using "Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier And MySQL"
Hello, I recently installed Zod - Fedora Core 6 and have been running through this HowTO "Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier And MySQL (Fedora Core 5)". I completed everything up to the point you telnet localhost 25, and receive no response back from postfix. See the quote box:
[root@lace ~]# telnet localhost 25
Connected to localhost.localdomain (127.0.0.1).
Escape character is '^]'.
Some background for anyone able to assist me: Currently have kyse.us domain. kyse.us points directly to my box (for purposes of letting people using port 27910 for quake 2 connect). www.kyse.us
is redirected to www2.kyse.us:81, and webmail.kyse.us is directed to webmail2.kyse.us:81. My intension is to leave www.kyse.us
for regular web space, and use the webmail.kyse.us for connecting to the mail on this server, and also using a webmail interface if I can get one set up. The box is behind a router/firewall, however the ports are open. SELinux is disable, as is the box's firewall.

I can post more of the file contents if there are other files you might need to see.

Also, I know im getting a little ahead of myself. But is there a webmail program that works with this setup, that will let me have the following conclusion:
I log into webmail using kyse as login name.
I can view firstname.lastname@example.org
email, view email@example.com
l, view firstname.lastname@example.org

After messing around with some things I got it to say something when I telnet in, but found another problem :/ I have no idea where this protocol mismatch comes from, but will post configs upon request. Heh...
Here's what the telnet session does now.
[root@webmail2 ~]# telnet localhost 22
Connected to localhost.localdomain (127.0.0.1).
Escape character is '^]'.
Connection closed by foreign host.

Port 22 is for ssh communication. If you really want telnet (never do this if your accessing systems on the Internet) then use port 21.
But as you are on a linux box, why not use the 'ssh' client command? It's there or if not, it's easily installed. just type
But you're testing your mail server, right? (just skimming though your posting):o ...
Then you should use
telnet localhost 25

Aw man, I fooled myself. looks like postfix still isn't working. :(

Here's the /var/log/maillog

Think that could have something to do with it?

Got some of the warnings gone, still having trouble with this one from my /var/log/maillog file
postfix/smtpd: fatal: unsupported dictionary type: mysql
postfix/master: warning: process /usr/libexec/postfix/smtpd pid 10495 exit status 1

Ok, I think I've got why this is happening figured out.
1) when trying to buildrpm, I get the message '-mcpu=' is deprecated. Use '-mtune=' or '-march=' instead.
2) RPM is not placed in /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/ or /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/*/ even..
3) I downloaded the postfix-2.2.8-2.3.i386.rpm and attempted to rpm it and got the following errors: file * from install of postfix-2.2.8-1.2 conflicts with file from package postfix-2.3.3-2
So, 1, postfix wasn't patched due to rpmbuild errors creating no rpm for me to install. And 3, now I can't even install the older postfix cause the newer version is out. Anyone know a way to fix this issue so I can either install the older RPM, or build my new 2.3.3 postfix?

OK falko, check it..
I got it all working, now im trying to edit the database using mysql.
it gives me the same error for editing domains as users but I have users to copy/paste, so here it is:
mysql> INSERT INTO 'users' ('email', 'password', 'quota') VALUES ('email@example.com', ENCRYPT('blah'), 10485760);
ERROR 1064 (42000): You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ''users' ('email', 'password', 'quota') VALUES ('firstname.lastname@example.org', ENCRYPT('blah' at line 1
Any ideas? :P

OK, here's where I'm standing now... hehe..
I can send and receive email to and from the one account I craeted in the databases now. email@example.com
. However if I try to send an email to internal user accounts on the mail server, such as firstname.lastname@example.org
or external email addresses such as email@example.com
, I get undeliverable return messages back to outlook.
What am I missing? :(
