I can - and I believe it has fixed it! I had to copy the setting to the other .cf files before the mail started working.

It also gave me a clue as to where I went wrong - Initially mysql server was shown as not working and having retraced the guide I think I'd left a line out here:

Code:
127.0.0.1       localhost.localdomain   localhost
192.168.0.100   server1.example.com     server1
# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1     localhost ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
ff02::3 ip6-allhosts
Of course, postfix had already been set up prior to the change. Does that sound logical?

Is this likely to have affected any other steps of the set up that I should deal with?

Thanks

David
