    Default mta and postfix can not work

    Hi,
    I have installed Zimbra network Collaboration(3.1) suite succesfully on fedora 4.
    But the thing is when I type
    $zmcontrol start
    $zmcontrol status
    mta stopped
    postfix is not running
    (other is running)

    my /etc/hosts is
    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    192.168.0.111 mail.localhsot.localdomain mailhost

    and when I type
    $postfix start
    it displays
    postfix/postfix-script:warning:not owned by root:/opt/zimbra/postfix-2.2.9/conf/main.cf
    postfix/postfix-script:staring the Postfix mail system
    You have new mail in /var/spool/mail/zimbra

    and I use "tail -f /var/log/zimbra.log", it displays
    fatal:Queue report unavailable - mail system is down
    warning:not owned by root:/opt/zimbra/postfix-2.2.9/conf/main.cf
    staring the Postfix mail system
    fatal:bind 0.0.0.0 port 25:Address already in use

    When I use "telnet localhost.localdomain 25", it displays
    Trying 127.0.0.1
    Connected to localhost.localdomain (127.0.0.1)
    Escape character is '^]'
    220 mail.localhost.localdomain ESMTP Sendmail 8.13.4/8.13.4; Sat, 12 Aug 2006 00:48:23 -0400

    I use "ps aux|grep mta" and ps aux|grep postfix, no more other mta or postfix is running

    I searched the forum, but i can not find a method to fix problem, please help me.

    Howdy,

    Well, it does look like something is hogging up port 25, your mail port.

    Perhaps instead of grepping for 'mta' and 'postfix', do a 'ps aux|grep sendmail'.

    Sendmail is the default for RedHat/CentOS at the moment, so if you're running one of those, there's an excellent chance sendmail managed to get started somehow.

    If so, you can just run:

    /etc/init.d/sendmail stop

    Good luck,
    -Eric

    Hi, guy, thanks.

    Yes, after stopping the sendmail, it is ok.

    And I have a new questions: how setup a DNS in linux? or where can I find some document to set DNS? I knew it is not problem about linux, I just want to try it.

    Thanks again.

    That depends on whether your running a test server or it's behind a NAT router or need split-dns. Install BIND and have a look at the instructions here there's also some further info in the wiki.
