    Hi All,

    now I need again your support :) I hope it's all ok!

    At the end of 2011 on an LINODE.com server I installed successfully ISPConfig 3.0.3 without the SMPT Server package and obviously in the monitor section I have:

    Web-Server: Online
    FTP-Server: Online
    SMTP-Server: Offline
    POP3-Server: Online
    IMAP-Server: Online
    DNS-Server: Online
    mySQL-Server: Online

    In this server I use 2 Ruby On Rails app and they work fine using a third part SMTP Server (I use gmail.com SMTP Server). Now I want use a local SMTP Server

    MY QUESTION IS:

    I have to upgrade ISPConfig 3 to 3.0.4 release to have a SMTP Server on my ISPConfig Server or exist another easy way?

    thanks you in advance guy

    If you wnat to use the smtp server only for sending emails with web applications and not for receiving emails on this server, then it should be enough to just install postfix. No need to upgrade ispconfig or install any additional filter software.

    Hi All,

    with the following link I fix out my server

    http://wiki.debian.org/Postfix#Installing_and_Configuring_Postfix_on_Debian

    now I have

    Web-Server: Online
    FTP-Server: Online
    SMTP-Server: Online
    POP3-Server: Online
    IMAP-Server: Online
    DNS-Server: Online
    mySQL-Server: Online

    :)

    but when I try a telnet connection

    Code:
     # telnet localhost 25 
    I receive the following response

    and can't exit from telnet command

    the correct message according the above solution link must be the following:

    probably It's incorrect the postfix setup?

    this is my mail.log file (I try to use postfix with an Ruby On Rails app)

    for further information you can see # cat /etc/postfix/main.cf

    somebody have any idea?

    thank you in advance,

    S
