So you have aaa.bbb.com both in mydestination and in the domains table. You must remove it from one of them.

Yes as I said in my starting post I have the machine named at the domain it should be mailserver for.
Is there any way to make this a working situation?

Use another hostname for your server. The ideal way would be to get a "technical domain", i.e. a domain that you don't use for web hosting, FTP, etc., but only for naming your servers. That's how I do it.

Thumbs up

Ok,

I get it, have tried it today and found that this works, I have now labeled the postfix box to hostname.aaa.bbb.com.
Very much thanks for supporting me and thumbs up for the good howto you wrote..

Hi,

Sorry to refloat this post. I'm having exactly the same problem nl0pat had. I tried to change the hostname and so on, but the problem still there.

Here's a copy of the error given by mail.log

Quote:
May 6 20:58:48 r23523 pop3d: Connection, ip=[::ffff:80.58.32.90]
May 6 20:58:49 r23523 pop3d: chdir domain.aaa/info/: No such file or directory
And a copy of the "postconf -d | grep mydestination"

Quote:
mydestination = $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain, localhost
proxy_read_maps = $local_recipient_maps $mydestination $virtual_alias_maps $virtual_alias_domains $virtual_mailbox_maps $virtual_mailbox_domains $relay_recipient_maps $relay_domains $canonical_maps $sender_canonical_maps $recipient_canonical_maps $relocated_maps $transport_maps $mynetworks $sender_bcc_maps $recipient_bcc_maps $smtp_generic_maps $lmtp_generic_maps
relay_domains = $mydestination
Maybe it is due to a step I didn't consider when following the howto. Anyway I have no installed Spamassasin, ClamAV...


Thanks in advance for your support.

Did you send a mail to that account first? Maildir is created automatically when the first email arrives.

I did, and now it works except for the SMTP server.

That's what my log says:

Quote:
May 10 21:30:30 r23523 postfix/smtpd[4011]: warning: SASL authentication failure: cannot connect to saslauthd server: Permission denied
May 10 21:30:30 r23523 postfix/smtpd[4011]: warning: SASL authentication failure: Password verification failed
May 10 21:30:30 r23523 postfix/smtpd[4011]: warning: host[xx.xx.xx.xx]: SASL PLAIN authentication failed: generic failure
May 10 21:30:30 r23523 postfix/smtpd[4011]: warning: SASL authentication failure: cannot connect to saslauthd server: Permission denied
When I try to connect to SMTP server, I always receive a login error, and then the message above on the mail.log


Any suggestion??


Thanks in advance
