  • This is on Centos 6.3, using 'stock' postfix, mysql, dovecot, and roundcubemail; following (pretty much) the tutorial at

    http://www.campworld.net/thewiki/pmwiki.php/LinuxServersCentOS/Cent6VirtMailServer

    So I am up to trying out the system, and used postfixadmin to create the domain the server is in, then a user and got an eror:

    Send Welcome mail: yes

    Unable to send email!
    The mailbox has been added to the mailbox table, but none (or only some) of the predefined sub-folders could be created
    (faxit@test.htt-consult.com)

    There is nothing under /home/vmail (in postfix/main.cf: virtual_mailbox_base = /home/vmail)

     
  • OK.  Got this figured out.  Firewall and Selinux blocking.  Firewall for the needed ports was easy.  For now Selinux in permissive mode as I read the howtos on it.

    Adding a user is very slow.  Seems to be problems with my postfix setupMore research.
