Mail on our leopard server suddenly stopped recieving extrnal mail about a month ago then around 2 weeks ago stopped recieving anything internally.


When i telnet in it tells me the user is not enabled even though in serveradmin and WGM say it is.


I have tried building a new server, ive had the mx records checked, the router and line checked, and the dns on the server is working fine.


Any idea what might be casuing this?

Xserve, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

    Same here. Something caused file to change... I can see it by modification date.

    First of all look at /etc/postfix/ line with parameter inet_interfaces

    it should be equal to all (inet_interfaces = all)

    in my case it was changed to inet_interfaces = localhost.


    Then i updated my system. And amavisd stopped working.

    As it was our production system, restored service by disabling virus/spam checking by commenting line

    #content_filter = smtp-amavis:[]:10024

    After doing this restart postfix or whole mail service from GUI.


    it seems amavisd was no longer starting. i could see it from netstat and ps.

    tried to start manualy, but

    launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/org.amavis.amavisd.plist

    returned nothing found to load

    i don't know what was the cause for this, but i needed to edit /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/org.amavis.amavisd.plist

    and change:







    launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/org.amavis.amavisd.plist

    it started normally.
