I m a newbie to linux and postfix.
After removing sendmail i have installed Postfix and other requisites as per instructions of the CentOs Site: http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/postfix
This site asked me to do following changes to the main.cf file:
myhostname = mail.example.com
mydomain = example.com
myorigin = $mydomain
inet_interfaces = all
mydestination = $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain, localhost, $mydomain
mynetworks = 192.168.2.53/24, 127.0.0.0/8 (My address on lan)
home_mailbox = Maildir/
In the /etc/aliases I added:
#Person who should get root's mail
I also follwed other instructions on this centos site.After doing all they had said In the termainal i did following:
But this mail is not recieved by /home/atiq/Mkdir (the mailbox defined according to the centos Wiki instructions).
I performed above mail operation both as a root user and then as another user but did not recieved any mail.
Please tell me where I am wrong and what should I do?
