Hi all,
Good Day ! i am new to Redhat Linux.i have RHEL4 in my machine, i did the folowing steps to configure postfix but at the end when i tried to start the service it failed, Please help me.
here r the steps

NOTE:
i have both DNS and POSTFIX on same machine and DNS is working well


1)-my DNS is mian.com & here is Farward zone file
-------------------------------------------------
$TTL 86400
@ IN SOA @ root (
42 ; serial (d. adams)
3H ; refresh
15M ; retry
1W ; expiry
1D ) ; minimum

@ IN NS pc2
@ IN MX 10 mail
pc2 IN A 192.168.0.3
www IN A 192.168.0.10
game IN A 192.168.0.11
mail IN A 192.168.0.3
----------------------------------------------------

2)- Here r the parameters i interduced in main.cf file

myhostname = mail.mian.com
mydomain = mian.com
myorigin = $mydomain
# inet_interface = localhost------>i commented it
inet_interface = all
mynetworks_style = subnet
mynetworks = 192.168.0.0/24, 127.0.0.0/8

----------------------------------------------------
3)- service sendmail stop
4)- ckconfig sendmain off
------------------------------------------------
THE PROBLEM STARTS HERE

when i issue "service postfix start" it failed
again and again

when i isseed "telnet 192.168.0.3 25 " it returned connection refused

WHEN I SEE /VAR/LOG/MESSAGES the folowing error was there which could not understand

Feb 22 08:04:09 pc2 postfix: postalias hash:/etc/aliases failed
Feb 22 08:07:56 pc2 postfix: failed
Feb 22 08:07:57 pc2 postfix: postalias hash:/etc/aliases failed
Feb 22 08:08:50 pc2 postfix: failed
Feb 22 08:08:51 pc2 postfix: postalias hash:/etc/aliases failed
Feb 22 08:10:05 pc2 postfix: failed


PLZ ALSO NOTE i am not using farwading in /etc/alises
and i also issues "newaliases" command but again postfix service failed to start.


I DID ONE THING MORE ( i dont knw weather i right or wronge)

i puted "#" in main.cf where "/etc/alises" appers in it BUT all in vain
