    Hi all,

    I installed postfix on a new box running Centos 5.x with webmin installed. I was having problems receiving email but not sending out email. So i edited this line

    Code:
    #inet_interfaces = all
    #inet_interfaces = $myhostname
    #inet_interfaces = $myhostname, localhost
    inet_interfaces = localhost
    When I did that restarted postfix and dovecot postfix failed to restart. When I checked in webmin I got this error

    Code:
    Error while checking current Postfix configuration. Please manually fix Postfix configuration.
    
    postfix: fatal: chdir(/usr/libexec/postfix inet_interfaces = localhost): No such file or directory
    
    So I set the configuration in main.cf back to the default but it still would not fix postfix.

    # ls -l /etc/postfix

    I tried to stop sendmail and just have postfix start up but that did not work either

    Code:
    ]# /etc/init.d/sendmail stop
    Shutting down sm-client:                                   [  OK  ]
    Shutting down sendmail:                                    [  OK  ]
    [root@chromacars raul]# rpm -e sendmail-cf
    [root@chromacars raul]# rpm -e sendmail
