    I have installed ISPConfig 3.0.3.3 on Ubuntu 10.04 using the perfect server How to.

    Upon completion I am getting the following Mail log error.

    May 22 13:16:01 ko2 postfix/sendmail[14853]: fatal: open /etc/postfix/main.cf: No such file or directory
    May 22 13:55:02 ko2 postfix/sendmail[25598]: fatal: open /etc/postfix/main.cf: No such file or directory

    May 22 14:45:02 ko2 postfix/sendmail[2466]: fatal: open /etc/postfix/main.cf: No such file or directory

    I think I may have missed a detail in the postfix install, but can't seem to figure out where.

    Any help would be appreciated!:confused:

    What's the output of
    Code:
    ls -la /etc/postfix/
    ?

    Thanks for the help Falko.

    Here is the results of: ls -la /etc/postfix

    SMTP-Server Offline

    Same problem here. I have tried almost every thing. Emails are being sent and received, however there is a lot of spam mails that are still coming in.
    The server uses Debian 7 Wheezy with ISPConfig3.
    The result of " ls -la /etc/postfix/ " is

    Login to ispconfig, go to the email module and edit the spamfilter policy details of the policy that you selected for the affected mailboxes and set the spam tag 2 level and spam kill level to a lower value. you can even set the spam kill level to the same number then the spam tag 2 level, if you want all spams to be deleted instead of being marked in the title. A good number for a stricter spam tag2 level is e.g. 3.501

    SMTP-Server Offline

    Dear Till,
    Thanks a lot for your detailed reply. What would we do without you and Falko :).
    I got rid of the spam as you described, but just wondering how can I get the
    SMTP-Server to show "Online" in the ISPConfig3 Control Panel. I have tried to apply steps from several posts inb the forum, but invain.
    Regards and wishes.

    You disabled smtp by adding a # in front of this line in postfix master.cf:

    Code:
    #smtp      inet  n       -       -       -       -       smtpd
    thats why it shows as offline.

    postfix main.cf for ispconfig3

    Hi,

    I installed everything, but i foolishly cludged up the postfix smtpd mail sending settings by using the main.cf from my ispconfig2 setup, so now i am getting various file not found errors and starttls does not work for sending mail as it can't find the encryption stuff.

    Can falko or whoever be so kind as to post here their main.cf so as I can fix mine up with it ?

    example of some errors from mail log:-
