    That is zlib1g-dev - zed ell eye bee one gee, not ell gee.

    Regarding your second error, just prior to that the instructions
    mkdir /var/lib/named/dev
    create the /var/lib/named/dev folder, then the mknod instructions create the null and random devices in that folder. I suggest you check if they exist. If not, repeat until they do.

    To install zlib1g-dev, simply type the following when logged in as root

    apt-get install zlib1g-dev

    where the fifth character of the name is the number 1 (one) not lowercase L (ell).

    Typo on the page? Not on my copy of the Internet. 'ramdom' is useless to you, it must be 'random' , so recreate them.

    Create a mail account, either with ISPConfig, or if you don't want to install ISPConfig, like this: http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2
    Afterwards you can test with Evolution (sending/receiving).

    Cool, I dont have to start work till later

    So I gave it ago, but I think some thing is wrong

    /etc/postfix/local-host-names I dont seem to have that file :confused:

    or this file /etc/postfix/virtusertable

    Code:
    root@rockinghamgateway:/etc/postfix# ls
    dynamicmaps.cf  main.cf  master.cf  postfix-files  postfix-script  post-install  prng_exch  sasl  ssl

    Here is what I typed in on the command line

    Code:
    root@rockinghamgateway:~# useradd -d /home/tommytomato -g users tommytomato
    root@rockinghamgateway:~# passwd tommytomato
    Enter new UNIX password: 
    Retype new UNIX password: 
    passwd: password updated successfully
    root@rockinghamgateway:~# postconf -e 'virtual_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/virtusertable'
    root@rockinghamgateway:~# postconf -e 'mydestination = /etc/postfix/local-host-names'
    root@rockinghamgateway:~# postmap /etc/postfix/virtusertable
    postmap: fatal: open /etc/postfix/virtusertable: No such file or directory
    
    Post fix seem to start ok

    Code:
    root@rockinghamgateway:~# /etc/init.d/postfix restart
     * Stopping Postfix Mail Transport Agent postfix                                                      [ ok ] 
     * Starting Postfix Mail Transport Agent postfix                                                      [ ok ] 
    root@rockinghamgateway:~#

    You must create both files, as shown in http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2 .
    In /etc/postfix/local-host-names, you must list your domains, and in /etc/postfix/virtusertable, you fill in the email addresses for which the server should be able to receive emails.

    Lucky I allmost gave up for the night and gone to watch Red Warf

    I created those two files and added the stuff needed.

    Should I run though that again. :confused:

    Question I already added the user in would it matter by adding it again :confused:

    Well anyway I'm trying it again

    I ran the command

    Code:
    postmap /etc/postfix/virtusertable
    And I get this message

    Code:
    postmap: fatal: open /etc/postfix/virtusertable: No such file or directory
    Now the file is there with 0644 as the permissons

    Did you create /etc/postfix/virtusertable (e.g. with a text editor such as vi)?
    What's the output of
    Code:
    ls -la /etc/postfix
    ?

    I created the file using Winscp3

    I hope you saved virtusertable with Unix linebreaks, not Windows linebreaks? If you edit the file on Windows, you must use an editor that allows you to save files with Unix linebreaks.
    Does the postmap command work now?

    So you saying I should create the file using vi instead of a windows base program.

    I'll give it another go

    TT
     
  18. tommytomato

    tommytomato New Member

    Yes the command
    Code:
    postmap /etc/postfix/virtusertable
    vi wouldn't let me save the file, but vim did ;)

    So where do i go now :confused:

    Ok here is what i've done

    I sent an email to the admin account on the server, it has recive the mail by the looks of it
    I now have a /home/admin/Maildir

    When using Evolution to contect I recive this message

    Now when i followed the 2nd step you pointed me too I added a user called tommytomato, I sent an email to the so call address and that bonced back, Evolution mail gives me this message on the bottom

    From: Mail Delivery System <MAILER-DAEMON@rockinghamgateway.com>

    So I'm not sure on whats going on there, but I think its the way the user was added, admin was added when I did the install and the tommytomato was added when I typed in

    Code:
    useradd -d /home/tommytomato -g users tommytomato

    What's the output of
    Code:
    ls -la /home/tommytomato
    ?

    I can ping rockinghamgateway.com. Is 58.7.0.171 the correct IP address?
