    I get an error when I reboot / shutdown my fedora core 5 computer (made according to the perfect setup). The error is: shutting down postfix: FAILED.
    At the same time, if I first type: /etc/init.d/postfix stop - it stops without errors and then I can reboot without errors also (postfix starts without errors as well).

    I can't yet say whether or not it's a big problem - because I've finished the 'perfect setup' but haven't installed ispconfig yet. But still - what can be the problem?

    Here's a part of my maillog from /var/log:

    Ignore it. Postfix gets stopped anyway as you're rebooting the system. /etc/init.d/postfix stop is working so everything's fine. :)

    Thank you! You know people, I think that ispconfig gets better support than some highly expensive software. Thank you so much Falko and Till!
