    Default [SOLVED] Broke postfix?


    I've been getting more spam recently, so I enabled some features noted here (Improving Anti-spam system - Zimbra :: Wiki), and I must have borked something. I believe it happened while trying to configure pyzor... anyway here's what /var/log/maillog says over and over again:

    Sep 4 11:39:12 zmail postfix/smtpd[17144]: fatal: open dictionary: expecting "type:name" form instead of "permit:"
    Sep 4 11:39:13 zmail postfix/master[14710]: warning: process /opt/zimbra/postfix/libexec/smtpd pid 17144 exit status 1
    Sep 4 11:39:13 zmail postfix/master[14710]: warning: /opt/zimbra/postfix/libexec/smtpd: bad command startup -- throttling

    Any ideas? I'm thinking a same version upgrade would fix this?

    Problem solved!

    Seems Sendmail must have wanted to startup - and never quit. Restart and re-install of Zimbra didn't fix the problem, simply stopping the sendmail service did. I didn't realize that until the end of the Zimbra install, where it told me it had a port 25 conflict. Thing is, zmcontrol gave an all clear (before re-install). After, it finally let me on to the fact that postfix simply wasn't running (because sendmail already was!).
