    I've setup a mailserver with postfix, amavis, mysql and spamassassin whith virtual users. If I send a mail to a user that isn't in amavis db the message get rejected by postfix and returned to sender and this only seems to happen if the user doesn't have directories created, by that I mean if add them to amavis send mail and then remove them again it works. If anybody understands what I mean and have a clue please help.

    Are there any error messages in your mail log?
    Did you follow a tutorial from HowtoForge? If so, which one (URL)?

    form the beginning I followed this tutorial,, and installed ispconfig. After testing it I didn't want to use ispconfig and uninstalled it. I then tried to set the server up according to this tutorial,, not reinstalling the whole server. I then setup amavis with per user config in mysql. Everything works fine (I think) but some users can't recieve mail untill I add them to amavis database and some can. Thats the strange thing why do I have to add one but not another. The obvious solution would be to automtically add all new users to amavis and then everything would hopefully work, but I don't want to do this.

    And I also noticed some other errors (warnings) in my mail log concerning smtpd.cert and TLS.

    maybe you or someone else knows how to solve these warnings.

    These tutorials are not compatible, so I think the best would be a clean reinstall, using only one of them.

    About what amavisd database are you talking? :confused:

    Hi again,
    the database is a mysql that I set up for amavis to get the users spamcomfiguration, it's described here. I think I solved that problem. It was when a user that wasn't in the db got a spammail the mail was rejected. I solved this by commenting out the sa_taglevel things in the config. So now a new user that isn't in the db doesn't get his mails scanned and if I add him to the db and set his levels mails get checked.
    For now everything works fine but I only use pop and imap so i don't know if it would work if I use encryption. That is why I would like to get rid of those warnings about smtpd.cert and tls but not reinstall the server. So if you got any ideas I would be very happy.

    By the way it's some really nice tutorials you got here.

    Many thanks

    Try to recreate the certs and accept all the default values. I guess you entered some invalid details in your previous try.
