    Fedora 15/ISPconfig-3 email problem.

    Getting this message sent to root about

    (reason: 550 5.1.1 <>: Recipient address rejected: User unknown in local recipient table)

    I found that somehow saslauthd was not running. So I started it and I'm no longer getting the error but the emails are now going to the queue.

    Hope this helps someone.

    Are there any errors in your mail log (in the /var/log/ directory)?

    scan logs for 9/30 but nothing found

    I came up with starting saslauthd from reading HowtoForge tutorial on setting up virtual users for Postfix, Courier and Squirrelmail with MySQL to get a general knowledge of what virtual user specifications look like.

    When I started saslauthd I no longer got the errors to root mail.
