    Default [SOLVED] Zimbra and console mail does not work

    Hi!

    I have Zimbra working on a machine, witch also running as a web server.
    Zimbra works fine, I can send, and receive emails.

    However, when I try to send mail out from a web site, It wont work.
    The same problem if I try it from console:
    Code:
    /usr/lib/sendmail -v my@mailaddress.com  < /etc/motd
    In both cases, I can see the mail in mailq, but stucks there.
    Code:
    mailq
    postqueue: warning: Mail system is down -- accessing queue directly
    -Queue ID- --Size-- ----Arrival Time---- -Sender/Recipient-------

                                             MY@MAILADDRESS.COM
    Sendmail also wont work.

    Code:
    sendmail -q
    postqueue: warning: unable to look up public/qmgr: No such file or directory
    postqueue: fatal: Cannot flush mail queue - mail system is down
    I guess I am using a wrong sendmail ?
    So what sould I use to be able to send out a mail from console? I can configure php to use the same I guess But what?
    Anyone had this kind of problem before?

    Thanks,
    Tibby

    UPDATE:

    If i use:
    Code:
    /opt/zimbra/postfix-2.6.5.2z/sbin/sendmail -v MY@MAILADDRESS.COM < /etc/motd
    It works fine.
    Only from php side doesn't seems to work.
    Php uses also sendmail to deliver messages.

    Zimbra instructs you to disable sendmail entirely. Better advice is to run it, but stop it from listening on the network. On RedHat, set DAEMON=no in /etc/sysconfig/sendmail. On others, do whatever is needed to eliminate the -bd argument.

    Your backlog of unsent mail is in /var/spool/clientqueue. If you can't figure out an upgrades-safe way to run sendmail without -bd, another way to clear that queue would be to run /usr/sbin/sendmail -Ac -q every few minutes out of cron.
