Now on to the next problem...
When installing postfix I cannot telnet localhost. It locks up here:
[root@server1 ssl]# telnet localhost 25
Connected to server1 (127.0.0.1).
Escape character is '^]'.
Nothing happens after that...
Any errors in the mail log or when you restart postfix?
This is the same problem I have with Debian. This time I have entered a host and domain that is active on the internet and will not be hosted from ISPConfig. To be sure, what DNS servers should I have entered during the Mandriva setup? I am still trying to understand what DNS servers go where--still a newbie, but not a quiter!
You must enter external DNS Servers to resolve Domain names that are not hosted by your server. Normally you get the IP addresses of these name servers from your DSL or datacenter provider.
