    Default postfix not running

    I recently installed Zimbra Collaboration suite "open source edition" on a test server (RedHat Enterprise AS 4). In the installation I changed the port from 80 to 8080. Everything seemed to fine as I am able to login from both the administration and regular email access via the ip address and port.

    When our programmer updated our DNS server so we can send and receive email, we noticed we are were unable to send and receive email.

    zmcontrol status shows MTA is stopped and postfix is not running. I did the obvious thing and I typed zmcontrol stop and zmcontrol start. Everything started gracefully. I type zmcontrol status and I received the same error.

    Here is what our logs show:

    Default I apoligize

    Since this is a test server, I got impatient and competely removed Zimbra. Now I am going to reinstall from scratch. I will let you know.

    Thanks.

    It was bit of a bear to completely uninstall (not to mention having to shut everything down twice, installation was giving port conflict errors).

    Everything is working now.

    No need to configure zimbra again if you running mta by following method:
    Yes, first you should stop sendmail by following command
    # service sendmail stop
    And you should stop your fire wall or execute following command
    # setenforce 0
    Now you stop zimbra and start again by following command

    # su zimbra
    #zmcontrol stop
    #zmcontrol start

    enjoy............

    Welcome to the forums. It's good that you want to help but you do realise that you've answered a thread that's over three years old and the answer has already been provided once in the thread?
