Still the same thing. It says:

Typing 127.0.0.1...
Connected to server1.writerspider.com (127.0.0.1).
Escape character is '^]'.


And the cursor just blinks on the next line after that.

Is there something I need to do with my domain name, like change a nameserver on it? And what is the significance of the 127.0.0.1?

Oh, I just remembered that the 127.0.0.1 is the locahost IP. Now I feel stupid. Regardless, though, this setup doesn't work for me yet. Something's wrong with the telnet I suppose.

I guess no answer on this issue, huh? Maybe I'll just try a different distro, although they all look like very similar install procedures.

Did you get any errors in mail or syslog? Did you get errors when you restart postfix or the sasl daemon?

Nope, no errors. It gives me the green words to the right, saying it successfully stopped and started back up.

Got it. A friend noticed I had multiple alias maps, and he also changed something in the mydestinations entry in the main.cf file, and it works now. sorry to put the group to any trouble.

Default Postfix Problem in Mandrive LE 2005

I've finished loading Postfix by following the Perfect Madriva guide, but when i telnet into it and run ehlo localhost, it just freezes. Is there a fix for this problem?

Did you use real domain names in /etc/postfix/main.cf? If not, try to change that (e.g. in myhostname, mydomain) and restart Postfix.
