Postfix as localhost
dead_line at hotmail.com

I have FreeBSD 4.8-R, I installed postfix latest from /ports.
The problem is this box has no domain, its just an fakeip 192.168.*
Now, after I installed postfix and disabled sendmail, my openwebmail
client start to say
Unable to connect to SMTP server:25
I tried the configuration in /postfix/main.cf to ip 192.168.0.2 or ip
127.0.0.1 or localhost
but all fail in my box and nothing works as SMTP!
deadline - send message error - couldn't open SMTP server
deadline - send message error - couldn't open SMTP server 127.0.0.1:25
deadline - send message error - couldn't open SMTP server localhost:25
Also when i try to telnet to my smtp seems no response and i dunt get a
postfix welcome msg!
192# telnet localhost smtp
Connected to localhost.q8online.com
Escape character is '^]'.
and it doesnot response to commands here!
In the same time, postfix reload or check, reads no problem.
Seems postfix cannot read a IP number as smtp server/port.
anyone kindly has a solution for this?
Thank you too much
