BIND must be installed, but you can switch it off if you don't need it. The installer just checks if BIND is existing on the system.

Falco,

http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_server_ubuntu7.10_p5

Under this section...

15 Courier-IMAP/Courier-POP3

If you do not want to use ISPConfig, configure Postfix to deliver emails to a user's Maildir*:

-------------------

I'm installing ispconfig and I did "this" below....

postconf -e 'home_mailbox = Maildir/'
postconf -e 'mailbox_command ='
/etc/init.d/postfix restart

*Please note: You do not have to do this if you intend to use ISPConfig on your system as ISPConfig does the necessary configuration using procmail recipes. But please go sure to enable Maildir under Management -> Server -> Settings -> EMail in the ISPConfig web interface.

-----------------------------

I wasn't supposed to do that and didn't understand that till I got to the sentance "under" what I was told to do... It seems all email is delivered to "root" now and I think this is the reason why.

Example, it says...

root@office:~# sendmail -v test@mydomain.com
this is a test
.
Mail Delivery Status Report will be mailed to <root>.


How can I make it be what it's supposed to be under ispconfig?

(how can I ungoof it?)

Thanks,

James

Did you create the email address test@mydomain.com in ISPConfig? Is it listed in /etc/postfix/virtusertable? Is mydomain.com listed in /etc/postfix/local-host-names?

What's in your /etc/postfix/main.cf, and what's the output of
Code:
netstat -tap
?
Any errors in your mail log?

falco,

I think it's ok. I know what the 'real' problem is now. Many isps here in the US, ie ATT&T dsl, blocks port 25. This little "play server" is sitting on my lan. It cannot send email "outside" or recieve email from "outside" the lan. I created an email account test@mydomain.com and can check for email via 192.168.1.201. I can send and recieve email no problem as long as I don't go outside of the lan. That's just because the isp is blocking port 25. It is still strange that I cannot do a local "sendmail -v test@domain.com".

James
