    Hey y'all,

    Uhm I am running CentOS 5.2 to start with.
    Anyway, I have also a e107 website up and running for 99 %....
    The 1 % is like the problem; I can not get Postfix to run.
    Can anyone give me a tutorial in how-to-set-up Postfix to send automails?
    (Like the activationmail in e107 and other php mail() based e-mails...)
    I'd like to know how it works...
    (I am like 15 (16 at the 9th coming :D) which means that I ain't that experienced regarding hosting...)

    Thanks in advance.

    Yeah, I have already read that, but I don't have a (Remote) Desktop.
    CentOS 5.2 is running on a VPS and the only thing I have is SSH, FTP and root access.

    How to do it with this? :)

    Uhm, I already have a CentOS 5.2 system running like you said before, also there is ISPConfig installed already.
    1) The "vi" command doesn't work, how to fix that?
    2) /etc/hosts does not exist - also a fix please.

    Thanks in advance.

    P.S: Output from "ifconfig" is:

    yum install vim
    Which virtualization technique (Xen, OpenVZ, VMware, etc.) are you using? I guess that with some virtualization techniques, the guests don't come with an /etc/hosts file.
