I am hoping someone might be able to help out here, or get me going in the right direction.
I am attempting to setup a mail server and it is kicking my arse. :P
Been trying now for about 2 weeks..
I have Ubuntu 8.04 for an os
I have installed LAMP server and SSH
I have been following several different how to guides... I have reinstalled Linux between attempts so i always started out fresh.
The latest guide I have tried is this one http://www.howtoforge.com/virtual-us...-ubuntu8.04-p4
I really would like the virtual users and domains thing...
I believe I have followed the guide but somewhere something is wrong.
When I attempt to telnet to the localhost 25 to test postfix I get the following
root@tweety:/home/centechadmin# telnet mail.centechcomputers.com 25 Trying 126.96.36.199...
Connected to centechcomputers.com.
Escape character is '^]'.
Connection closed by foreign host.
The pop3 seems to be working fine
My postfix/main.cf file is as follows
myhostname = mail.centechcomputers.com
smtpd_banner = $myhostname ESMTP $mail_name (Ubuntu/GNU)
biff = no
append_dot_mydomain = no
myorigin = centechcomputers.com
mydestination = %myhostname, localhost, localhost.localdomain

virtual_overquota_bounce = yes
content_filter = amavis:[127.0.0.1]:10024

anyone see anything obvious????
Thanks in advance for any advice.
