    Hi,
    Newbie here, followed the Perfect Server and Virtual Domain setup to the letter (almost).

    I can

    Code:
    telnet localhost 110
    and get the response

    Code:
    root@aladdin:~# telnet localhost 110
    Trying 127.0.0.1...
    Connected to localhost.
    Escape character is '^]'.
    +OK Hello there.
    but when i do

    Code:
    telnet localhost 25
    i get this

    Code:
    root@aladdin:~# telnet localhost 25
    Trying 127.0.0.1...
    Connected to localhost.
    Escape character is '^]'.
    Now, i checked to make sure the response worked in between setting up Perfect Server Ubuntu 7.10 and Virtual Users and Domains Postfix.... and all worked fine. But when i got to saslauthd stuff, i think thats when it went pear shaped.

    here is my main.cf


    Code:

    Look at the log file you will see the error messages.

    Which log file?

    Hi TopDog

    Could you possibly tell me which log file i should be looking at?

    i have gone into /var/log and run
    Code:
    grep error *
    with the following output
    Code:

    Seems like you are running debian i think postfix will log to mail.error mail.info and mail.log.

    I dont think it will log the word error.

    Try tailing the logs then telnet to the server
    Code:
    tail -f /var/log/mail.*
    
    You should see some thing like
    Code:
    warning: process /usr/libexec/postfix/smtpd pid 1326 exit status 1

    from the above output, i can tell a few things...but maybe you could shed some more light on it, especially this:
    Code:

    You need this in your main.cf file
    Code:
    smtpd_recipient_restrictions = permit_mynetworks, permit_sasl_authenticated, reject_unauth_destination
    
    It is missing.
