    Default Correct Postfix Startup Info

    I have a zimbra installation on the same server as a drupal install, and when I installed drupal, it changed something in the postfix startup configuration.

    Since then, when I reboot the server, postfix is started by root, and apparently that blocks zimbra from working properly. The solution to that was to kill the postfix started by root, and then to restart Zimbra.

    While that was an OK situation for a while, I'd like for the server not to need this. I tried today to fix the init script set up by running update-rc.d -f postfix delete defaults, which made postfix not start at startup.

    Now, when I restart the server, I have to start postfix for zimbra to want to start up.

    Can anybody tell me how to get postfix startup configured properly? I'm sure this answer is on this forum somewhere, but I can't seem to find it.

    Default Are there any thoughts?

    Just a bump. I just started working on this again, and the first google hit I got was my own question. Seemed like it must be time to bump then.

    I should also add that since I am killing postfix for drupal, drupal does not have any availability to send messages, which is a pretty bad thing.

    Why not upgrade to 5.0.10 and let it fix the problems for you

    How does that fix the problem? Pardon my ignorance...I'd guess that would still need postfix and still block drupal, would it not?

    Well, I updated to 5.0.10, and restarted, and I still have this problem. After booting, my computer starts postfix as root, and I have to kill that instance, and then start postfix as zimbra.

    That makes zimbra work, but it's certainly a hassle every time the computer boots, and beyond that now Drupal doesn't have an instance of postfix that it can connect to, so it can't send emails.

    Which postfix are you talking about in this comment? If you mean the one supplied in your operating system then it should not be started at all as Zimbra has it's own copy of postfix.
