(Distro: Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit)
When I upgraded from Zimbra 7 to 8, it told me to remove Exim, because it would interfere with the Postfix mailing system Zimbra was going to install (Zimbra 7 did allow it). However, my Exim was installed with the following in /etc/default/exim:
This made sure it didn't claim port 25.
The importance of this was, that mailing from the command line worked:
$ cat /etc/aliases
# Not using my zimbra-email account. If a lot on
# this machine fails, including zimbra, I have no mail..
$ echo "mail me" | mail -s subject root
It doesn't work anymore. It doesn't give an error. It just does nothing.
This means that all messages sent by my own maintenance scripts, cron, etc, aren't sent anymore. This is kind of inconvenient.
bsd-mailx is installed.
Note: the following does work:
So, it doesn't expand the aliases anymore. But even when I type "mail" as root, it says "no mail".
$ echo "mail me" | mail -s subject firstname.lastname@example.org
Is there a way to get command line mailing functionality back?
