Default Email issues

Hey guys,

Again. Thanks for a great product and great help. I know it is all voluntary and it is much appreciated.

My server is really not a money maker but I have put in some long hours on making the 15 or so sites on it work. It's more of a learning experience for me.

My setup is Ubuntu 9.04 and ISPConfig 3 per - http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-se...04-ispconfig-3

I recently found that I was having email issues. I can't receive any emails to any of the domains that I have setup on my server. I did some research and it seems that this is a semi-common issue. I've searched through my logs to see if I can isolate the issue but don't see anything that stands out to me and most fixes i find either do not apply to my distro or I'm not comfortable trying them. My Linux skills are very limited.

Any advice or help? Also, should I backup and reinstall a newer distro as this one is quite old?

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

This is not the reason for your issue. It does not matter if clamav reports that it is outdated as long as freshclam downloads new updates.

Regarding your original issue, please post the exact error messages from your mail.log file.

Default Thanks for easing my mind on the ClamAv issue

Thanks, Till

I don't see any error messages in mail.log but 'postqueue -p' does show this type of thing:

Run:

ls -la /var/vmail

it should show you a list of directories that have the same names then your email domains. If you see the folders exist, run this command to recursively fix all permissions:

chown -R vmail:vmail /var/vmail
