    You should be able to find the answer if you search the forums but you should, at least, start by looking at the errors in the log files.

    stop zimbra
    su - zimbra
    zmcontrol stop
    zmcontrol status
    logout
    make sure all zimbra services were stopped
    then do
    lsof -i TCP:25
    if you see port 25 still in list then you have another "default" mailserver running on the machine..remove that..and start zimbra services again.
    also
    look into the logfiles as phoenix suggested

    I had the same problem, removed the postfix and decided

    sudo apt-get remove postfix

    Reboot

    even removing postfix he keeps the authentication settings.

    so.. I had same problem.. with port 25 after power failure

    I do as root postfix stop, then as zimbra user do a zmcontrol stop - than start, and now MTA works.. but I am confused should I disable postfix or not?

    what is the safest way to do that?

    tnx

    Yes, of course you should disable the postfix that's installed by your operating system: +ubuntu +"disable service" - Yahoo! Search Results

    I solved this problem fixing the permissions:

    as zimbra user: zmcontrol stop
    as root: /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmfixperms --extended
    as zimbra user: zmcontrol start
