    Hi,

    I'm new to PostFIX, found this forum, and thought I would reach out, for some group help.

    I'm following the following website to setup PostFIX using WebMin.

    http://postfixmail.com/blog/index.php/using-webmin-to-set-up-postfix/

    I entered the domain information:

    myhostname = mail.example.com
    set interfaces "inet_interfaces = all"
    mydestination = $mail.example.com
    mydestination = $example, $example.com

    i edited the root aliases file, and ran the 'newaliases' command.

    and when I fired up the postfix service, I received a 'failed to start' message.

    any help would be appreciated.

    ian

    see serverfault.com for these complexities. postfix is very good and very, precise. some things have to be listed before others. not sure the '$' sign will work.
