Now on to the next problem...

When installing postfix I cannot telnet localhost. It locks up here:
Code:
[root@server1 ssl]# telnet localhost 25
Trying 127.0.0.1...
Connected to server1 (127.0.0.1).
Escape character is '^]'.
Nothing happens after that...
Any errors in the mail log or when you restart postfix?

This is the same problem I have with Debian. This time I have entered a host and domain that is active on the internet and will not be hosted from ISPConfig. To be sure, what DNS servers should I have entered during the Mandriva setup? I am still trying to understand what DNS servers go where--still a newbie, but not a quiter!
You must enter external DNS Servers to resolve Domain names that are not hosted by your server. Normally you get the IP addresses of these name servers from your DSL or datacenter provider.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.

What's in /etc/postfix/main.cf?

You can simply use the ones mentioned in the tutorial. What's in your /etc/resolv.conf?

Disregard gentlemen...

I landed up aborting the Mandriva install due to these problems. I stayed up all night and reinstalled Debian. I don't know if you remember from before, but I had this same postfix problem with Debian.

Well, I had some luck reinstalling Debian. I have ISPConfig running on it as well as postfix. Everything went flawlessly!

All I have to do now is move the data to the new hd. I am just going to recreate my websites in ISPConfig just to keep it clean. I only have 4 hosted currently so it shouldn't be a big deal. Then I can move the site files over as required.

Thanks!
