    I need some help installing Postfix on the latest Ubuntu. First off, here are my DNS records from freedns.afraid.org just in case i got anything wrong:
    Code:
    localserver.mooo.com	A	71.14.99.36
    localserver.mooo.com	MX	10:localserver
    When I try to telnet into it, I get this:
    Code:
    [email protected]:~$ telnet localhost pop3
    Trying 127.0.0.1...
    Connected to localhost
    Escape character is '^]'.
    +OK Hello there.
    user admin
    +OK Password required.
    pass *****
    +ERR Temporary problem, please try again later
    Connection closed by foreign host.
    Help :(

    POP3 has nothing to do with Postfix. What'S your POP3 daemon?
    Any errors in your logs?

    I fixed that file. Here's what's happening now:

    POP3
    Still getting a temporary problem error.
    Code:
     Account: 'localserver.mooo.com', Server: 'localserver.mooo.com', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '-ERR Temporary problem, please try again later', Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800CCC92
    SMTP
    This error when I send mail to someone in the network:
    Code:
    The rejected e-mail address was [email protected]'. Subject 'hee', Account: 'localserver.mooo.com', Server: 'localserver.mooo.com', Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '451 4.3.0 <[email protected]>: Temporary lookup failure', Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 451, Error Number: 0x800CCC79
    And a relay access denied error when i send a message to someone outside the network.

    Can you post the exact error messages from your mail log?
    What's in /etc/resolv.conf?

    Some error messages that keep popping up that I haven't already fixed are:

    Code:
    May 31 19:31:17 ubuntu postfix/master[5752]: warning: /usr/lib/postfix/cleanup: bad command startup -- throttling
    Code:
    May 29 17:46:17 ubuntu postfix/pickup[17481]: fatal: watchdog timeout

    What's in your /etc/postfix/main.cf?

    Can you add other name servers to /etc/resolv.conf, e.g. the ones of your ISP?

    What's in /etc/postfix/master.cf?
    What's the output of
    Code:
    postfix check
    ?

    Here's my postfix folder, knock yourself out. (Gotta make some use of the server :p)
    postfix check:
    Code:
    postfix: error: to submit mail, use the Postfix sendmail command
    postfix: fatal: the postfix command is reserved for the superuser
    sudo postfix check:
    A slight pause, then nothing.

    Also, is it possible for us to do this over an instant messenger? Forums take a long time.

    Here, instead of you telling me to do all kindsa things, I'm just going to give you access to the machine so you can run commands, and edit the necessary files. I PMed you the login details.

    SCP/SFTP/SSH: (I use WinSCP and PuTTY)
    71.14.99.36:22
    User: root
    Pass: In PM message

    Anyone else have a clue how to fix it?

    I'd compare all your files with the ones from the tutorial. Maybe there's a typo in one of them...
