    Hello,

    I just did an upgrade of Ubuntu 11.04 to 11.10 and now I have problems with the mail server I would to like fix before upgrading to Ubuntu 12.04.

    The version of MySQL, Postfix and of Dovecot has been upgraded. Now I have this error:
    Code:
    Aug  3 06:53:56 ve postfix/proxymap[3894]: warning: connect to mysql server 127.0.0.1: Can't connect to MySQL server on '127.0.0.1' (110)
    Aug  3 06:53:56 ve postfix/trivial-rewrite[5578]: fatal: proxy:mysql:/etc/postfix/mysql-virtual_domains.cf(0,lock|fold_fix): table lookup problem
    

    I can connect to the database:
    Code:
    [email protected]:/etc/dovecot# mysql -u email_admin -p
    Enter password:
    Welcome to the MySQL monitor.  Commands end with ; or \g.
    Your MySQL connection id is 559
    Server version: 5.1.69-0ubuntu0.11.10.1 (Ubuntu)

    Really complex for me. Does anyone have an idea?

    Thank you.
