    Default Is this normal?

    This is the result of my zmcontrol status. mta is stopped. Is that normal?

    Default nope

    To find out which portion of the mta service isn't running run this:

    su - zimbra
    sh -x bin/zmmtactl status

    Which script returned a non-zero value?

    Default postfix not started

    Postfix didn't start.

    ps auxww | grep postfix - is it really not running? If anything shows up, kill it and run "postfix start" as zimbra - see if that fixes it.

    If it's not running, run postfix start and check /var/log/zimbra.log for errors. If it complains about missing certificates or other TLS errors, check the forums for info on cert creation and install.

    Is sendmail running, or a different postfix process? If so, stop it (/etc/init.d/sendmail stop) and disable it (chkconfig sendmail off) and start postfix.

    If there's another error, post it here and we'll figure it out.

    I like to use Hexillion to do external tests on Domains and email addresses: www.hexillion.com

    Here is the result I get. I can now receive e-mails from external sources but I am wondering about the minor conflicts in the communication shown below. They are obviously not show stoppers I am now receiving e-mail successfully. Thanks for your help :

    Default SMTP strictness

    Glad to hear it's running!

    We're a bit stricter in SMTP than they're expecting - we want a fully qualified name, they tried without - and I don't think anyone supports EXPN (mailing list expansion) in this age of spam.

    Our EHLO response didn't list it as supported, so I'm not sure why they tried it.

    hi

    i seem to have a similar problem when installing zimbra m2 on fc3. it's a new installation, i've tried it all about four times in a row, have checked my installation disk prior to installing fedora and it was all okay..

    here's what i see when i try zmcontrol status:

    Code:
    # su - zimbra
    $ zmcontrol status
    ERROR: service.FAILURE (system failure: getDirectContext) (cause: javax.naming.CommunicationException mymail.psuter.ch:389)
    then i've tried

    Code:
    $ sh -x bin/zmmtactl status
    + BASE=/opt/zimbra
    + SCRIPTS='zmmtaconfigctl zmamavisdctl postfix zmsaslauthdctl'
    + case "$1" in
    + STATUS=0
    + for i in '$SCRIPTS'
    + /opt/zimbra/bin/zmmtaconfigctl status
    cat: /opt/zimbra/log/zmmtaconfig.pid: No such file or directory
    + R=1
    + '[' 1 -ne 0 ']'
    + STATUS=1
    + for i in '$SCRIPTS'
    + /opt/zimbra/bin/zmamavisdctl status
    cat: /opt/zimbra/log/amavisd.pid: No such file or directory
    + R=1
    + '[' 1 -ne 0 ']'
    + STATUS=1
    + for i in '$SCRIPTS'
    + /opt/zimbra/bin/postfix status
    + R=1
    + '[' 1 -ne 0 ']'
    + STATUS=1
    + for i in '$SCRIPTS'
    + /opt/zimbra/bin/zmsaslauthdctl status
    cat: /opt/zimbra/cyrus-sasl-2.1.21.ZIMBRA/state/saslauthd.pid: No such file or directory
    + R=1
    + '[' 1 -ne 0 ']'
    + STATUS=1
    + exit 1

    so obviousley i've got the problem with psotfix. so i've checkt for sendmail and procmail.. here are the results:

    Code:
    $ ps auxww | grep postfix
    zimbra   27729  0.0  0.2  5476  656 pts/0    R+   23:57   0:00 grep postfix
    $ ps auxww | grep sendmail
    zimbra   27633  0.0  0.2  4264  664 pts/0    R+   23:43   0:00 grep sendmail
    so obviousley none of the two are runing.. so i've tried to start postfix:
    Code:
    $ postfix start
    /opt/zimbra/postfix-2.2.3/sbin/postalias: error while loading shared libraries: libbind.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    /opt/zimbra/postfix-2.2.3/sbin/postfix: error while loading shared libraries: libbind.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    maybe i should mention, that i had the problem mentioned here:
    http://www.zimbra.com/forums/showthread.php?t=775
    and i've fixed it with the symbolic link ..

    your help would be appreciated...
    i had m1 installed on a vmware virtual host before and it worked.. now i was trying m2 no a real computer (pentium III 1gig with 3xxMB memory)

    kind regards
    pascal

    see post http://www.zimbra.com/forums/showthread.php?t=769

    I had the same problem. You have to run yum to update your system and that error will go away.
