    Qmail not cooperating


    Hi all, im doing a QMail installation and so far it went well from what i've read here. However when i do simple tests to see if the mail server is running or not i get this.

    Code:
    server:~# qmailctl stat
    /service/qmail-send: up (pid 27357) 0 seconds
    /service/qmail-send/log: up (pid 17240) 1684 seconds
    /service/qmail-smtpd: up (pid 27354) 0 seconds
    /service/qmail-smtpd/log: up (pid 17245) 1684 seconds
    messages in queue: 0
    messages in queue but not yet preprocessed: 0
    So far so good right? Look further...

    [user@computer]$ nmap 10.23.2.37

    Starting Nmap 4.20 ( Insecure.Org - Nmap Free Security Scanner, Tools & Hacking resources ) at 2008-06-18 18:10 CDT
    Interesting ports on 10.23.2.37:
    Not shown: 1692 closed ports
    PORT STATE SERVICE
    21/tcp open ftp
    22/tcp open ssh
    80/tcp open http
    111/tcp open rpcbind
    113/tcp open auth

    Where is the listening port?

    Back on the server....

    server:~# netstat -a
    Active Internet connections (servers and established)
    Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State
    tcp 0 0 10.23.2.37:55555 *:* LISTEN
    tcp 0 0 *:sunrpc *:* LISTEN
    tcp 0 0 10.23.2.37:www *:* LISTEN
    tcp 0 0 10.23.2.37:18320 *:* LISTEN

    tcp 0 0 10.23.2.37:10323 *:* LISTEN
    tcp 0 0 *:ftp *:* LISTEN
    tcp 0 0 localhost:smtp *:* LISTEN <--- Why isnt it showing else where?
    So when i saw that i figured, maybe its just hiding. Until i tried the following....

    [user@computer]$ telnet 10.23.2.37 25
    Trying 10.23.2.37...
    telnet: connect to address 10.23.2.37: Connection refused
    Whats going on??? That tutorial lasted about a good hour or two(slept between installation) and now i dont have a working email server?! Ugh!

    One more thing.

    This is the output from /var/log/qmial/smtpd/current file...

    Code:
    @400000004859396e1c6d0404 tcpserver: fatal: unable to bind: address already used

    @40000000485939773129887c tcpserver: fatal: unable to bind: address already used
    Could that be part of the reason why its not working? Help! Im completely lost

    Thanx in advance!
