Are you sure that postfix is running properly?

Connected to ip6-localhost.

Hi Ron,


Just ran;

$ sudo /etc/init.d/postfix start
Password:
Starting Postfix Mail Transport Agent: postfix.


$ telnet localhost 25
Trying 127.0.0.1...
Connected to localhost.localdomain.
Escape character is '^]'.

Stop here. Still the same.

This doesn't look good.

Neither does this.

Somewhere in /etc/postfix/ is probably a misconfiguration.
