    Hi All,

    First off, thanks to all for this great project. Installation was a breeze and everything is pretty self explanatory. I did run into a couple of confusing areas:

    o) One of the customized libs breaks default yum update. Run with `yum update --skip-broken` to workaround;
    o) The default firewall registered in chkconfig on my system from The Planet was iptables. After checking that the ISPConfig firewall was configured correctly I removed iptables from chkconfig and added bastile-firewall and all was happy.

    The last thing I'm having trouble with is SMTP. Postfix doesn't seem to be giving an SMTP banner:

    Which hangs there forever. Googling around turned up a reference to the smtpd_recipient_restrictions configuration in Postfix's Mine looks like this:

    Checking /etc/postfix/ gives us:

    I'm guessing this is the tie in to ISPConfig. However, checking the database turns up an empty table:

    Is there supposed to be something in this table telling Postfix to give me a banner? I have no idea, but any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks again,

    -- Tim

    Well, it looks like a couple of things happened. For whatever reason when I installed originally (around April 2009) the postfix version just didn't want to let me into port 25. Then when I updated the system with yum it overwrote the postfix version altogether with something that didn't support MySQL configurations. So I rebuilt the latest version of postfix according to the current CentOS 5.3 install guide, did an update to the latest version of ISPConfig 3 and everything seems to be happy now. In fact, now I'm thinking about doing a yum remove on everything and try updating all the ISPConfig 3 packages just for kicks :)
