Because as much as I like using both, apparently, I am
obviously NOT good at either.
Now, before I continue, I have been to Postfix's site, several
other unofficial postfix and MTA sites, debian, google all over
the place, etc...and can't seem to find an answer.
So I'm testing postfix...running telnet on the machine (simply
for testing purposes...I know SSH is way better and will be
used if I ever put this thing online) to write a test message.
mail.log shows this:
Jan 13 13:24:09 localhost postfix/local: A815B2FFD6:
to=<mike@localhost>, relay=local, delay=0, status=sent
(delivered to mailbox)
Yet, when I look in /home/mail, which is the test directory,
there's nothing there. If I look in /var/mail there is a
bounced email....but it's not supposed to go there, AFAIK. I
verified that mysql is running....the database, tables, and the
user (username and password for fetching) are all in there.
To me, it almost seems like postfix isn't talking to mysql or
vice versa. It can't seem to locate the user so that it can
deliver the message to the mailbox.
Or am I way off base here?
Anyone have a clue? PerfectReign? TP?
USe SSH2 when the server goes live.
Sounds like you haven't created the mailbox itself. You say it was
sent to "mike@localhost." Is there a user's mailbox set up as
"mike"? And is there a root / server admin forward, since you're
sending it to localhost?
In /home/mail/ there should be the domain, then the username, then
That's my first guess, but mind you I don't use Postfix, I use
