    Hey guys...
    I have strange problem.. sendmail refused to start, so i installed postfix. What do i have to configure? I want just some basic mail server that works :rolleyes: I'm using webmin. When i go to form for sending mails and i fill all needed fields... it says "Mail sent successfully". If i send thru root@localhost.localdomain or either if from any domains i host, i don't get mail...
    Here's config:
    http://nero-server.com/main.cf.txt

    Hope it helps..

    Thanks!

    Which distribution do you use?

    What's in the mail log?

    Ok, please change
    Code:
    virtual_alias_maps = dbm:/etc/postfix/virtual
    to
    Code:
    virtual_alias_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/virtual
    in /etc/postfix/main.cf and run this:
    Code:
    postmap /etc/postfix/virtual
    /etc/init.d/postfix restart
