    Dear All,

    Please I need help. My postfix server gives the following error when client system on the LAN try to send out mail. ¨delivery temporary suspended: connect to 127.0.0.1 [127.0.0.1]: connection refused¨.
    Mails been pulled by fetchmail are not been delivered to clients and outgoing mails are not delivered either. I can do telnet localhost 25 and get the following.


    [root@mandriva ~]# telnet mandriva.amlbti.lan 25
    Trying 127.0.0.1...
    Connected to mandriva.amlbti.lan (127.0.0.1).
    Escape character is '^]'.

    What are the outputs of
    Code:
    netstat -tap
    and
    Code:
    uname -a
    ? Does /usr/lib/postfix/smtpd (not /usr/lib64/postfix/smtpd) exist?
