    I managed to setup The Perfect Setup - Ubuntu 6.10 Server plus ISPConfig with the help of the HowTo's and forum answers. Got the server running smoothly. I was wondering if somebody can assist me in installing OpenEMM List Manager (found in this website http://www.openemm.org/) coz I can't find no resources here. The list manager is cool.:) :D

    Plus OpenEMM uses sendmail, if I install sendmail while postfix is installed will it disrupt postfix and other configurations set up on the perfectly running "The Perfect Setup - Ubuntu 6.10 Server plus ISPConfig"?

    Postfix is compatible with Sendmail (it even comes with a program called sendmail to guarantee compatibility) so I don't think you have to replace Postfix.

    thanks falko. you're answers on my questions are really helping me a lot big time!
    So you are saying that their is a program called "sendmail" that makes "Sendmail" compatible with Postfix? where can I get the "sendmail" program?

    Where can I find a HowTo on installing and configuring Sendmail while Postfix is running?

    What falko means is that postfix provides a sendmail command which means that programs which use sendmail the package will not notice the difference they will be using postfix just as they would use sendmail.

    Postfix installs /usr/sbin/sendmail which is a link to /usr/sbin/sendmail.postfix

    No No if you have postfix you dont have to install sendmail.

    but for the installation instructions in this website http://www.openemm.org/wiki/Installation:InstallGuideDebian#Operating_System one of the steps says I have to do this:

    and this one also:

    so if Sendmail will not be installed how will I go about these instructions?

    I have just taken a look it seems to be very tightly intergrated with sendmail. in which case then you need to be running sendmail as your MTA not postfix.

    ok. thanks for the info mate. one last question, how do I migrate then on ISPConfig from postfix to sendmail? I mean my ISPConfig is using postfix what do I do so it will use sendmail and ISPConfig won't get wrecked?

    have a great weekend.:)

    Please adjust the settings on the Management > Server > Settings > Email tab in ISPConfig.

    by adjusting this, won't it affect the current functions and settings for the server specially the mailings? For example the webmail, IMAP, courier?

    Webmail, IMAP and POP3 aren't affected by this, but you should update all your users so that a new Sendmail configuration can be written (instead of the old Postfix configuration).
