    I have set up Postfix, MySQL, Courier etc etc... and everything looks good except that postfix can't deliver mail to local accounts

    In webmin I get this status message in postfixes queue on an incoming mail:

    Code:
    connect to 127.0.0.1[127.0.0.1]: Connection refused
    .

    Pls help.

    Thanks,
    Darren

    Did you install any antispam/antivirus software like amavis, spamassassin and/or clamav ? If so, then it probably isn't running, or it isn't configured to allow mails from localhost.

    Please give us some more info on the setup:
    O.S. + version
    output of main.cf
    extra soft installed as av/spam ?

    Thanks,
    Thanis

    The outputs look ok.

    What's the output of
    Code:
    telnet localhost 25
    and then
    Code:
    ehlo localhost
    ? Any errors in your mail log?
