    Just installed latest ubuntu server and ISPConfig and smtp (postfix is not starting)
    postfix/master[30556]: fatal: bind port 10025: Address already in use​

    So i checked port 10025 and i see it's used by spampd:

    fuser -uv 10025/tcp
    10025/tcp: spampd 7988 F.... (spampd)spampd
    spampd 7990 F.... (spampd)spampd
    spampd 7994 F.... (spampd)spampd
    spampd 7995 F.... (spampd)spampd​

    Any solution how to make it work together?

    spampd is not used on an ispconfig server and it is not installed by any of the ispconfig installation guides and it should not be installed on an ISPConfig server, so the system could not have been clean at the beginningor you must have installed spampd manually using som other installation guide. Try to stop and remove spampd and then hope that there is no other conflicting software or settings on your server.

    I took Ubuntu from here: (18.04.1 LTS)
    Than i used this script to install ISPConfig:

    Got it working by removing it, only problem with non working DNS is left...

    When dns is not working then the zone you added is probably incomplete. search the forum for named-checkzone for threads that describe how to check dns zone issues.

    Regarding spampd, it seems as if the script installs it but the official ispconfig instructions don't install it. I'll try to reach the author of that script to fix it.
