Default I by accident let webmin install sendmail ...?

I was checking something though webmin about sendmail and it gave me a link so i could in stall sendmail. I wanted to have a look but without a warning it installed sendmail and:

The following packages will be REMOVED:
postfix postfix-tls
The following NEW packages will be installed:
rmail sendmail sendmail-base sendmail-bin sendmail-cf sensible-mda
0 upgraded, 6 newly installed, 2 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 2053kB of archives.

etc......

Two questions:
  • did I f...ck up ?
  • If so what should I do ?

Thanks in advance for your quick reply

Just go to the Postfix section of the appropriate "Perfect Setup" on HowtoForge and install and configure Postfix again.

Default Almost done it but have a few questions:

Falko,

Thanks I have "puttied" my way through the perfect setup again (great that you have made this) but encountered a small problem:

The etc/postfix/main.cf varies form the perfect setup on the following points:

#mydestination = localhost.localdomain, localhost.localdomain, , localhost

This may sound stupid (and it is) but I am not sure anymore what domain I set up when installing) Can you tel me what file to look at so I can alter the the main.cf file of postfix to my domain http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/ima...s/rolleyes.gif



mailbox_command =

Can I replace this with ?:

procmail -a "$EXTENSION"

At the end of the file it says :

home_mailbox = Maildir/

virtual_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/virtusertable

mydestination = /etc/postfix/local-host-names

Can I leave that in there?

You can leave that line as it is because the ISPConfig installer should have put the line
Code:
mydestination = /etc/postfix/local-host-names
into it as a replacement.

Yes, but I'd leave it as it is for now.

If you use Maildir, then yes. Otherwise no.
