Greetz to all.
I've never been able to get a mail server working on my FreeBSD installation. While I
recently upgraded to 8.0-RELEASE, it hasn't worked since my initisl 7.0-RELEASE
installation. This is not a major server, so I haven't fussed with it up to now. But,
I would like to finally fix it.
I've tried various combinations of postfix and sendmail, but all have failed. It
doesn't matter to me whether I run postfix or sendmail, though I have far more
experience with sendmail. I believe that both postfix and sendmail are currently
installed, with postfix being the mail server. I want to forward mail to my sendmail
MTA for distribution, which I'm doing successfully with many other *nix boxes.
Here's what I currently see in /var/log/messages whenever I try to send a message from
the FBSD box:
Nov 28 04:15:30 marshfield kernel: pid 11721 (mailwrapper), uid 0: exited on signal 11
and in /var/log/maillog:
Nov 26 21:35:29 marshfield postfix/master: daemon started -- version 2.7-20091008,
Here's at least a snippet from main.cf:
mydomain = ourdomain.com
readme_directory = no
myorigin = $mydomain
mydestination = $mydomain
#relayhost = [mail1.$mydomain]
relayhost = 192.168.1.2
data_directory = /var/db/postfix
transport_maps = /usr/local/etc/postfix/transportsmtpd_recipient_restrictions = permit_my
I've googled, etc., but haven't come up with a solution. Your help would be greatly
