    Default mail issues

    Hi All

    seems, I now have mail issues,after each issue, I know have a new one.

    It seems my mail server can't recieve and accept emails. When I try to send emails between users, that does not seem to work .

    I have checked the logs in /opt/zimbra/logs, and find nothing stating mail denied etc. I check in /var/log/mail.info and get these errors.

    Feb 21 11:59:34 nene postfix/smtp[26025]: CE381D4020: to=, relay=127.0.0.1[127.0.0.1]:10024, delay=80299, delays=80299/0.02/0.01/0, dsn=4.4.2, status=deferred (lost connection with 127.0.0.1[127.0.0.1] while receiving the initial server greeting)

    Note my zimbra zerver is internal and nat. I have port 25 forwarded. I am able to telnet from the outside and make a connection with the mail server.

    Any ideas

    host `hostname` <--backticks not single quotes
    dig any domain.com
    your /etc/hosts file
    DNS lookups setting?
    ie: Have you setup a split-dns at all?

    Hi Mmorse

    I do not have a split dns system. the dns resides on my firewall/dsl machine.

    My dns and /etc/hosts looks fine.

    Default delivery deferred, lost connection with 127.0.0.1

    I have the same symptoms that have been described above.

    It's possible my server was harshly powered off on July 4th; in any case the problem has occurred only since it was booted again on July 5th.

    This is running on Ubuntu Dapper, installed using zcs-5.0.6_GA_2313.UBUNTU6.20080522130240.

    /var/log/mail.log is full of this type of thing:
    Jul 6 06:37:09 mail postfix/qmgr[14180]: 9554F5E74364: to=, relay=none, delay=2213, delays=2213/0.13/0/0, dsn=4.4.2, status=deferred (delivery temporarily suspended: lost connection with 127.0.0.1[127.0.0.1] while receiving the initial server greeting)

    and this type of thing:
    Jul 6 09:13:56 mail postfix/qmgr[7365]: ADAA05E743C8: to=, relay=none, delay=0.79, delays=0.38/0.41/0/0, dsn=4.3.0, status=deferred (mail transport unavailable)

    my mail transport is:
    root@mail:~# zmprov ga moquist@vlacs.org | grep -i trans
    zimbraMailTransport: lmtp:mail.vlacs.org:7025

    My DNS is fine and connecting to port 7025 works as expected (though I'm not sure about the syntax error):

    ^]
    telnet> quit
    Connection closed.

    Following the instructions in another forum discussion, I added the following two lines to /etc/security/limits.conf:
    soft nofile 65535
    hard nofile 65535
    ...though just now I took them back out (and rebooted again) because these lines immediately followed, and because nothing had improved:
    # End of file
    zimbra soft nofile 524288
    zimbra hard nofile 524288

    Thanks for any advice you can provide.

    I think I figured out my own problem. A few weeks ago I was messing around with different port forward options and dropped the following into a startup script:

    /sbin/iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp --dport 10025 -j DNAT --to-destination 127.0.0.1:25
    /sbin/iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -j MASQUERADE

    Then when the system got rebooted, the rules were applied and things went haywire. *doh*

    I removed the startup script and rebooted (just to really make sure everything was reinitialized properly) and my server has been chugging away for ~1 hour now processing all the deferred mail. Yeesh!

    Cheers,
    Matt
