    Default [SOLVED] postgrey / maillog warning: connect to 127.0.0.1:60000: Connection refused

    I've installed postgrey on my server per the instructions here.

    I sent some test messages: a few from hotmail.com (not whitelisted) and a few from yahoo.com (whitelisted) at approx Thu Oct 29 10:30:00 CDT 2009

    Some notes:
    Code:
    # tail -f /var/log/maillog

    Per the posting in the forum I'm double checked a few things:

    1) "One thing I would fix is to get postgrey starting before Zimbra"
    Check, I stopped zimbra, restarted postgrey, and started zimbra again: same error shows in logs when hotmail and yahoo attempt to resend.

    2) "Have you disabled IPtables ?"
    Check, I disabled iptables altogether, then restarted postgrey/zimbra per/ 1): same error shows in logs when hotmail and yahoo attempt to resend.

    3) "Found the problem. Couple of .pid files in /opt/zimbra/log were owned by root instead of zimbra".
    Code:
    # ll /opt/zimbra/log/*.pid
    -rw-r----- 1 zimbra zimbra 6 Oct 29 11:10 /opt/zimbra/log/convertd.pid
    -rw-r----- 1 zimbra zimbra 6 Oct 29 11:10 /opt/zimbra/log/logswatch.pid
    -rw-r--r-- 1 zimbra zimbra 5 Oct 29 11:10 /opt/zimbra/log/zmgengraphs.pid
    -rw-r--r-- 1 zimbra zimbra 5 Oct 29 11:10 /opt/zimbra/log/zmlogprocess.pid
    -rw-r----- 1 zimbra zimbra 5 Oct 29 11:11 /opt/zimbra/log/zmmtaconfig.pid
    Check, all pid files in /opt/zimbra/log are owned by zimbra.

    Both hotmail and yahoo keep re-attempting but neither have made it through yet. It's been over an hour: Thu Oct 29 11:42:37 CDT 2009

    Google isn't providing much in the way of answers. The few postings I did see were to the postgrey mailing list and the answer appears to be that postgrey should either be listening to the unix socket or on 127.0.0.1:60000 but not both. I'm way out of my element here so I may be misunderstanding that piece. Either way:

    Code:
    # netstat -nlp | grep grey
    unix  2  [ ACC ]  STREAM  LISTENING  6322171  17767/socket  /var/spool/postfix/postgrey/socket
    
    # grep socket /var/log/messages
    Oct 29 11:06:07 zerver postgrey[17767]: Binding to UNIX socket file /var/spool/postfix/postgrey/socket using SOCK_STREAM
    
    # netstat -nlpa | grep 60000
    (produces no output)
    so that appears to be ok.

    I understand this is a postgrey problem and not a zimbra problem but I am submitting this so that there is a zimbra solution for all interested in greylisting.

    Thanks in advance,
