    Did you enable Maildir in ISPConfig?
    What's in the mail log when you send a mail?
    Did you disable SELinux?

    I don't install ispconfig, and my SELinux was off.
    These from my "/var/log/maillog"

    [root@server log]# cat /var/log/maillog

    I don't see any errors in the log.
    What's the output of
    Code:
    netstat -tap
    , and what's in /etc/postfix/main.cf (please strip out the comments)?

    Looks ok. I was thinking that
    Code:
    home_mailbox = Maildir/
    was missing, but it's there.

    Please run
    Code:
    tail -f /var/log/maillog
    and send a mail from user1@mydomain.org to user2@mydomain.org. What do you see in the mail log then?

    Is there a .procmailrc or .forward file in guest2's homedir? Is guest2 listed in /etc/aliases?

    beautiful New Member

    I cannot found .procmailrc/.forward file in guest/guest2 homedir. I try to add /etc/aliases, with

    Code:
    guest:     guest
    guest2:    guest2
    
    But, still doesn't work.

    I have reinstalled my computer yesterday, and configured just liked "Fedora core 5 perfect setup". Then i try to send some emails from guest@example.org to guest2@example.org or vice versa, and everything is OK.

    There are 2 folders in guest/guest2 homedir, "mail" and "Maildir". I missed folder "Maildir" in the past system. Maybe, it causes by axigen. I installed axigen, then i try to send email using postfix, and failed. Maybe axigen change the email system.

    Btw, thx for your help falko

    I don't know how Axigen works, so I can't tell how it changes your system.
