Default postfix ISPconfig problem

hi everyone

i have a suse 9.3 and i follow the Falko manual COMPLETELY and everythink worked OK (in this case mail).
by the way EXELLENT manual. Falko
http://www.falkotimme.com/howtos/per...e9_3/index.php


now, when i finished the ISPconfig installation my mail (Postfix) wasnt working, and i was getting these logs:

Sep 6 18:07:54 acuario postfix/master[24681]: warning: empty macro name: "$#mydestination"
Sep 6 18:07:54 acuario postfix/master[24681]: fatal: dictionary mail_dict: macro processing errorSep 6 18:08:56 acuario postfix[24841]: warning: empty macro name: "$#mydestination"
Sep 6 18:08:56 acuario postfix[24841]: fatal: dictionary mail_dict: macro processing error
Sep 6 18:09:06 acuario postfix/postfix-script: starting the Postfix mail system
Sep 6 18:09:06 acuario postfix/master[24918]: daemon started -- version 2.2.1, configuration /etc/postfix


so, i comment the 3 lines that ISPconfig added to my postfix/main.conf and my mail was back

relay_domains = $#mydestination
virtual_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/virtusertable
mydestination = /etc/postfix/local-host-names

can anyone explain me what should i do, to enable my mail and in the future allow others domain/users mail.
i suppose those lines are very necesary.

Hi,

try to add these three lines:

Code:
mydestination = /etc/postfix/local-host-names
relay_domains = $mydestination
virtual_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/virtusertable
to your main.cf and restart postfix:

Code:
/etc/init.d/postfix restart

ok i commented out again those 3 lines and I found 1 big error in the line

relay_domains = $#mydestination (the # ISPconfig put it there )
i erase that # and is apparently working becouse the mails are getting in but staying in Queue, soo my users cant read their mail

these are the logs:

Sep 7 14:44:53 acuario postfix/qmgr[28989]: 051D437731: from=<matehortua@gmail.com>, size=1665, nrcpt=1(queue active)
Sep 7 14:44:55 acuario postfix/smtp[29012]: 051D437731: to=<marcos@ims.com.co>, relay=ims.com.co[192.168.1.1], delay=13, status=sent (250 2.6.0 <5c2d4a8b05090712449b7d3af@mail.gmail.com> Queued mail for delivery)
Sep 7 14:44:55 acuario postfix/qmgr[28989]: 051D437731: removed

Yes, you need to remove the # in $#mydestination! Is it working now?

yes its working tanx
so my conclusion is that ISPconfig add those 3 lines and they are necsesary but the line
relay_domains = $#mydestination

has that # that damages everything. sooo the solution is to erase that # (sharp)
relay_domains = $mydestination


that is a bug that can keep you 1 complete day or even more stopped at work so plezz developrers fix it.

tanx everyone im starting to enjoy my ISPconfig

Hi,

we will try to find out how this can happen. There are some thousand installs from ISPConfig out there and it is the first time that it was reported that quoting the variable is not worked correctly so i'am not shure if we can reproduce this behaviour. But we will try

Hello!

Just wanted to say I had the exact same issue. Didn't take me long to fix it but just wanted to report. I installed ISPConfig yesterday... System is Debian Sarge 3.1.
