    Hi I finished a migration of a webserver (mailpart) with the migration tool to a dedicated mailserver.

    Now some of my email will go through and some will get an error and gets queued up.
    Error in postqueue:
    local data error while talking to ((RECIEVING MAILSERVER))

    Corresonding error in mail.log
    warning: hash:/etc/postfix/sasl_passwd is unavailable. open database /etc/postfix/sasl_passwd.db: No such file
    warning: hash:/etc/postfix/sasl_passwd lookup error for ">>FICTIONAL EMAILADRESS<<"
    warning: D659860F80: smtp_sasl_password_maps lookup error

    Checking if the file is not there and its not...

    I tried to update ispconfig and reconfigure the services but unfortunatly it didnt help.

    I have no idea why i had this error (not my first perfect server install), but my solution was:
    touch /etc/postfix/sasl_passwd
    postmap /etc/postfix/sasl_passwd
    restart postfix
    force the resend of the queue
    postqueue -f

    You are correct. I used the nightly.

    What i also noticed is that the postfix install doesn't start itself. I have to manually start it by running:

    dpkg-reconfigure postfix
