If you are having trouble receiving or sending email you may try these general steps:
Check your /var/log/mail.log. 93.7% of all problems cause a more or less clear error message there. :)
- Run postfix check. No output means everything is well.
- Ask on the #postfix IRC channel on irc.freenode.net. I usually attend there as Signum but please just ask and wait for people to help you. Especially read the hints in the channel's topic and my hints on how to get useful help on IRC.
- Ask on the forums.
- Check the (deprecated) workaround chitchat mailing list archives
- This tutorial is meant for Debian 5.0 "Lenny". If you are trying this setup on any other distribution you are completely on your own.
List contents of the mail queue (add -v to be more verbose, add multiple -v's for increased verbosity):
mailq or postqueue -p
Schedule immediate delivery of all mail that is queued:Amavis:
Sending an email directly to the author asking for help is the worst choice. Sending an email directly to the author giving suggestions or feedback is a good choice. :)
