Thanks, Rocky...

I took your suggestion of rebuilding the transport file and rebuilt that as well as the relay_domains and relay_recipients files.

I ALSO deleted the .db files to be sure they were recreated. Perhaps you meant for me to do that in the first place, but I did not the first time around.

I am not sure why, but this FIXED IT !!! Mail is now flowing all the way through and looks like everything is working properly.

Thanks Again... Do you know why this worked? Since you suggested it, I suppose you have seen it before? Any insight as to what is happening there?

This happened to me a 2yrs ago with the original spamsnake. I was busting my brains trying to figure it out and did the same as you. I did make a mistake in my transport file, which I caught, and it was causing the problem. However, even after I fixed the entry and postmapped it, it didn't work. So I too did what you did, and it worked.

So congrats and have fun. Hope it works out for you.

Rocky

OK, this might be a dumb question - but how did you recreate the .db files? I deleted mine and restarted postfix and they were not re-created. Now postfix doesn't work at all!!!

Yep, was a dumb question. Re-postmapped them, et voila

Tyiell,

So did this resolve the SMTP unavailable issue?

Er, no

But in researching, I cant help but question whether I should have added the line that Rocky told you to add below - you said you already had it, but I did not - it wasnt in the guide and whilst I cheerfully added it in, I dont actually seem to have an smtpd service running....

Code:
smtp n - - - - smtpd
Im so confused now I think I need to leave it alone and come back later before I do something daft!

Paul,
You didn't have a line like that in your master.cf? It should be at the very top.

If you didn't, this would lead me to believe that your install was incorrect, as this line should be there by default.
