Default Found A cool Maling List Manager, But Couldn't Install it.

I managed to setup The Perfect Setup - Ubuntu 6.10 Server plus ISPConfig with the help of the HowTo's and forum answers. Got the server running smoothly. I was wondering if somebody can assist me in installing OpenEMM List Manager (found in this website http://www.openemm.org/) coz I can't find no resources here. The list manager is cool.

Plus OpenEMM uses sendmail, if I install sendmail while postfix is installed will it disrupt postfix and other configurations set up on the perfectly running "The Perfect Setup - Ubuntu 6.10 Server plus ISPConfig"?

Postfix is compatible with Sendmail (it even comes with a program called sendmail to guarantee compatibility) so I don't think you have to replace Postfix.

So you are saying that their is a program called "sendmail" that makes "Sendmail" compatible with Postfix? where can I get the "sendmail" program?

Where can I find a HowTo on installing and configuring Sendmail while Postfix is running?

What falko means is that postfix provides a sendmail command which means that programs which use sendmail the package will not notice the difference they will be using postfix just as they would use sendmail.

Postfix installs /usr/sbin/sendmail which is a link to /usr/sbin/sendmail.postfix

No No if you have postfix you dont have to install sendmail.

but for the installation instructions in this website http://www.openemm.org/wiki/Installa...erating_System one of the steps says I have to do this:

Quote:
Operating System: Package Installation

(run as superuser)

Install the required packages. Further depencies will be resolved automatically by the installation programm.

apt-get install mysql-server-4.1 python-mysqldb sendmail-cf

OpenEMM will not work with mysql-4.0, therefore, you need at least version 4.1.
and this one also:

Quote:
Configuration Changes - Sendmail

(run as superuser) If you want to use the bounce management of OpenEMM for delayed bounces, some modifications are required by the superuser:

---File: /etc/mail/sendmail.mc----

Change the line:

DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp,Addr=127.0.0.1, Name=MTA')dnl

to: dnl DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp,Addr=127.0.0.1, Name=MTA')dnl

---File: /etc/mail/sendmail.mc---

This will enable Sendmail to listen on all available network interfaces, which is required by the OpenEMM bounce management system. By default Sendmail is listing only on the local interface lo0 for connections.


---File: /etc/mail/sendmail.mc---

Add the following line at the end of file:

INPUT_MAIL_FILTER(`bav', `S=unix:/home/openemm/var/run/bav.sock, F=T')dnl


---File: /etc/mail/sendmail.mc---

This will enable the dynamic mail loop required by the bounce management system of OpenEMM.

---File: /etc/mail/relay-domains---


If file relay-domains does not exist, create the file - for example by touch relay-domains

and add a line, which specifies your DNS entry for the sender hostname(FQDN). In our example it is simply:

news.openemm.org

---File: /etc/mail/relay-domains---


---File: /etc/mail/mailertable---

Add a line at the end, which activates the bounce management for that FQDN:

news.openemm.org procmail:/home/openemm/conf/bav/bav.rc

---File: /etc/mail/mailertable---


To activate the Sendmail changes, run the following commands:

cd /etc/mail

make

and restart the Sendmail service by:

/etc/init.d/sendmail restart

You may ignore the warning that /home/openemm/var/run/bav.sock is missing, since this file will be provided with the next step.
so if Sendmail will not be installed how will I go about these instructions?

I have just taken a look it seems to be very tightly intergrated with sendmail. in which case then you need to be running sendmail as your MTA not postfix.

Please adjust the settings on the Management > Server > Settings > Email tab in ISPConfig.
