Bye Bye Sendmail, Hello Postfix
I finally gave up on Sendmail, what a nightmare for the beginner!! i have dowloaded and installed Postfix. The configuration seems a lot simpler than Sendmail. I tweaked the main.cf and the server failed to start. I copied back in a 'Vanilla' main.cf and the server STILL fails to start, the maillog file lists this :-
May 27 05:07:52 mailweb sendmail: gethostbyaddr(192.168.0.99) failed: 1
May 27 05:07:52 mailweb sendmail: NOQUEUE: SYSERR(root): No local mailer defined
May 27 05:07:52 mailweb sendmail: NOQUEUE: SYSERR(root): QueueDirectory (Q) option must be set
I am perplexed as to why it says sendmail when I'm using postfix. The sendmail server IS stopped.
This seems to me a lot closer to being running than I get with sendmail, can anyone help?
ps Thanks for the sendmail help lakshmipathi but it got the better of me in the end!!:)
