    Postfix fails to work


    Hi folks,


    ubuntu-6.06.1-LAMP-server-amd64

    Postfix fails to work

    $ sudo postconf -e 'inet_interfaces = all'
    bash: postconf: command not found

    $ which postconf
    No printout

    $ ls /usr/sbin/ | grep postconf
    No printout

    # dpkg -l | grep postfix
    rc postfix 2.2.10-1ubuntu0.1
    A high-performance mail transport agent
    * end *

    It is there.

    $ sudo /etc/init.d/postfix restart
    $ sudo /etc/init.d/postfix status
    both no printout.


    This happened after installing "sendmail" which was to satisfy another problem. Now "sendmail" has been erased with;

    $ sudo apt-get remove sendmail

    postfix still fails to work. Pls advise. TIA

    check the log first /var/log/mail.log

    see here on nice postfix install tutorial

    re-install using apt-get

    also, install email program like mutt to see whether email is received/sent.

    Hi olddocks,

    check the log first /var/log/mail.log

    see here on nice postfix install tutorial

    re-install using apt-get
    Tks for your advice and URL.

    I already have my problem solved by erasing Sendmail and reinstalling Postfix. Ubuntu allows only one MTA.

    also, install email program like mutt to see whether email is received/sent.
    $ dpkg -l | grep mutt
    No printout

    $ sudo apt-cache show mutt

    Description: Text-based mailreader supporting MIME, GPG, PGP and threading
     Mutt is a sophisticated text-based Mail User Agent. Some highlights:
      o MIME support (including RFC1522 encoding/decoding of 8-bit message
        headers and UTF-8 support).
      o PGP/MIME support (RFC 2015).
      o Advanced IMAP client supporting SSL encryption and SASL authentication.
      o POP3 support.
      o Mailbox threading (both strict and non-strict).
      o Default keybindings are much like ELM.
      o Keybindings are configurable; Mush and PINE-like ones are provided as
        examples.
      o Handles MMDF, MH and Maildir in addition to regular mbox format.
      o Messages may be (indefinitely) postponed.
      o Colour support.
      o Highly configurable through easy but powerful rc file.
