    Hi,

    So my server crashed for some unknown reason so I started to look thru logs to figure why did it happen and I came across mail log and I though it was weird cause I
    remember removing sendmail from boot-up by following perfect setup here but guess not, any ideas what happen here?

    Code:

    Seems like I have Postfix problems too
    Code:
    Sep  3 21:40:14 linux postfix/master[2767]: fatal: /etc/postfix/master.cf: line 81: missing "transport type" field

    All mail servers 'masquerade' as sendmail for backwards compatibility with older software, scripts etc, so all you are seeing is Postfix pretending to be sendmail. So, in a sense, yes, you have a Postfix problem too, but in truth you have a Postfix problem.

    A good start would be to read the log error message, and edit /etc/postfix/master.cf, and fix the problem on line 81. Or at least see what is on line 81. It may well be related to a network setup problem, a sasl or TLS problem, or a typo.

    Thanks for the reply!

    I was looking in main.cf instead of master.cf
    on line 81 in main.cf was commented description of some commands so I couldn't figure out what was the problem,
    and my real problem with master.cf was that I never finished configuring SPF In Postfix and I had this [...] left on line 81 stupid me, I know :eek:
    But now its best time to finish.
