    Default [SOLVED] MTA Service Stopped

    Hi.
    I installed Zimbra Collaboration Suite 6.0 Open Source Edition on Ubuntu 8.04.
    The installation finished ok! but when I enter to administration console --> the state of server indicates MTA Service STOPPED!!

    With commands:

    zimbra@host:/root$ zmcontrol status
    Host domain
    antispam Running
    antivirus Running
    ldap Running
    logger Running
    mailbox Running
    mta Stopped
    postfix is not running
    snmp Running
    spell Running
    stats Running

    zimbra@host:/root$ zmmtactl start
    Rewriting configuration files...done.
    Starting zmmtaconfig...zmmtaconfig is already running.
    postfix/postfix-script: warning: not owned by root: /opt/zimbra/data/postfix/spool
    postfix/postfix-script: warning: not owned by root: /opt/zimbra/postfix-2.6.2.2z/conf/main.cf
    postfix/postfix-script: warning: not owned by root: /opt/zimbra/postfix-2.6.2.2z/conf/master.cf
    postfix/postfix-script: warning: not owned by root: /opt/zimbra/postfix-2.6.2.2z/conf/master.cf.in
    postfix/postfix-script: warning: not owned by postfix: /opt/zimbra/data/postfix/./spool/pid/master.pid
    postfix/postfix-script: starting the Postfix mail system
    Starting saslauthd...already running.
    Tiene un nuevo mensaje de correo en /var/mail/zimbra

    zimbra@host:/root$ zmmtactl status
    postfix is not running


    the problem are permissions? ([SOLVED] After Upgrade 5.0.18 -> 6.0 cannot start postfix)

    I changed some warning about permissions "chmod 755" but the problem persists!!

    root@host:/opt/zimbra/data/postfix# ls -all
    total 16
    drwxr-xr-x 3 postfix zimbra 4096 2009-09-16 17:41 .
    drwxr-xr-x 8 zimbra zimbra 4096 2009-09-16 17:25 ..
    -rw------- 1 postfix postfix 17 2009-09-16 18:31 master.lock
    drwxr-xr-x 16 postfix postfix 4096 2009-09-16 17:41 spool


    Any idea?
    thanks!!

    That would indicate that you already have a mail server running on port 25. I'd suggest you stop zimbra with:

    Code:
    su - zimbra
    zmcontrol stop
    Then check if any Zimbra processes are still running and kill them if they are. When you've done that check to see if any mail server is running by doing the following from a konsole:

    Code:
    telnet localhost 25
    If you get a response then a mail server is running, kill it and disable it from starting then you can restart Zimbra. If you get no response then try restarting Zimbra and see what happens.

    That's right!!!
    "Exim 4 was on port 25". I disable this.. and then.. MTA_Zimbra works correctly!

    thanks a lot phoenix!!!
