    Exclamation [SOLVED] mta not running correctly

    I logged into the zimbra admin interface and saw that the mta wasn't running correctly. So I logged into the server and did zmcontrol status. I saw that the mta indeed wasn't fully working. I followed this by a stop and a start.

    When I'm stopping the services, I get this mail in /var/mail/zimbra.

    Unable to determine enabled services from ldap.
    Enabled services read from cache. Service list may be inaccurate.

    When I do zmcontrol start, everything looks fine.

    After sitting for a little while, I get this mail in /var/mail/zimbra.

    postqueue: fatal: Queue report unavailable - mail system is down

    When I do zmcontrol status, I get this:

    Host mail.server.com
    antispam Running
    antivirus Running
    ldap Running
    logger Running
    mailbox Running
    mta Stopped
    postfix is not running

    Default Removed exim4

    I got rid of exim4 which seemed to be installed and running.

    stop/start still gave me the same issue so I did an upgrade to the same version and got this error during the install

    Port conflict detected: 25 (zimbra-mta)

    Default

    What do you get when you telnet localhost 25? Do you have sendmail running as well?

    Default More stuff

    root@vindico:~# cat /etc/hosts
    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    192.168.1.11 vindico.profarius.com vindico

    # The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
    ::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
    fe00::0 ip6-localnet
    ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
    ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
    ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
    ff02::3 ip6-allhosts

    root@vindico:~# cat /etc/resolv.conf
    search profarius.com
    nameserver 192.168.1.1


    I also tried turning the services off, ./install -u, restart, ./install, restart
    still the exact same error.

    zimbra@vindico:~$ postfix start
    postfix/postfix-script: warning: not owned by root: /opt/zimbra/postfix-2.4.7.5z/conf/main.cf
    postfix/postfix-script: starting the Postfix mail system

    zimbra@vindico:~$ ls -l /opt/zimbra/postfix-2.4.7.5z/conf/main.cf
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root postfix 2037 2008-09-14 00:34 /opt/zimbra/postfix-2.4.7.5z/conf/main.cf

    I ran /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmfixperms just to make sure.

    I'm kinda beating my head against the wall here. I have a pfsense router set up with the domain profarius.com. The server is set up to be vindico.profarius.com.

    Default exim4

    !SOLUTION!

    Apparently exim4 is not easily remove with apt. There were two suggestions pointed out in this post. http://www.zimbra.com/forums/install...t-running.html

    update-rc.d -f exim4 remove

    or install sysv-rc-conf and remove anything across from exim4.

    Apparently removing exim4 doesn't handle the services it binds to. Or something like that.

    aww...ok, I guess that would explain it.
