Default Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier And MySQL (+ SMTP-AUTH, Quota...

Finally, after a few hours of carefully going step by step acording to the HOWTO: Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier And MySQL (+ SMTP-AUTH, Quota, SpamAssassin, ClamAV), I reached page 5, where it suggests you to test the settings as follows:

10 Test Postfix

To see if Postfix is ready for SMTP-AUTH and TLS, run

telnet localhost 25

After you have established the connection to your postfix mail server type

ehlo localhost

If you see the lines

250-STARTTLS

and

250-AUTH

everything is fine.


What if I don't get shit???
This is what I get when I do it on my server:
/usr/local/sbin# telnet localhost 25
Trying 127.0.0.1...
Connected to localhost.localdomain.
Escape character is '^]'.
ehlo localhost
(here's the blinking cursor and that's it)


What the heck did I miss!?!?!? Where did I go wrong???

I'd be glad to get some help here!
Thanks
Ziv

Default Damn!

I hate when it happens!
I've found the problem and fixed it.
I "travelled" around in the logs and found this error:
Oct 24 03:02:18 zehu postfix/proxymap[2725]: fatal: /etc/postfix/mysql-virtual_forwardings.cf: bad string length 0 < 1: select_field
=
There was a blank space somewhere in the file, aparently came from the copy/paste, I did from the HOWTO...
hmmm, now it seems to be working, anyway, the problem is fixed, talk to you in the next problem, I hope not...

Default Stuck same place - what logs helped?

I'm stuck at the same critical moment-of-truth place. Killfrog: what log files did you find useful in tracking down your particular error? Perhaps I can find errors there that point to whatever my particular problem is .... thanks.

Default

Well, that was so long time ago!!!
I no longer own a mail server, and the last time I did I didn't use the virtual domains stuff, but to answer your question, I went through all the mail related logs on /var/log (mail.log, mail.err, mail.warn)
HTH
