    Default /etc/postfix/main.cf: No such file or directory

    zimbra zcs-7.1.3_GA_3346.UBUNTU10_64
    on ubuntu 10.04 64-bit

    in /etc/mail.info I recently discovered countless numbers of the following entry:

    postfix/postqueue[16831]: fatal: open /etc/postfix/main.cf: No such file or directory

    It doesnt seem to affect zimbra, cause this lines appears even in very old logs and zimbra is working fine, but its still confusing and annoying.

    Any idea?

    thnx,
    p

    Hi, gruad23. Did you have postfix installed in this server before install Zimbra?

    hi ccelis5215,

    indeed. there seems to be postfix installed, cause I dont think this is the zimbra-postfix ... ?

    #dpkg-query -l "*postfix*"
    ii postfix 2.7.0-1ubuntu0.2 High-performance mail transport agent

    Dont know how it got there, but I guess it was a pre-requisite to some monitoring-tool I installed.

    However ubuntu-postfix does not seem to be configured, cause when I do a

    # echo test | mail gruad@where.gruad.lives
    send-mail: fatal: open /etc/postfix/main.cf: No such file or directory
    Can't send mail: sendmail process failed with error code 75

    Damned. What to do? Can I simply uninstall ubuntu-postfix without screwing zimbra-postfix up?

    thnx,

    Sorry, i don't have the answer. Think about

    It doesnt seem to affect zimbra, cause this lines appears even in very old logs and zimbra is working fine, but its still confusing and annoying.
    Personally, i don't touch anything.

    Well, despite the fact that you are right and "never change a running system" is still a golden rule, I decided to simply remove the ubuntu-postfix this morning, cause I'm the kind of nerdy person that cant stand 10.000 useless log-entries per day.

    #apt-get remove postfix

    and so far no problems. I think that the log-entries had nothing to do with zimbra in the first place. ubuntu-postfix and zimbra-postfix just use the same logfile and the log-entries were from some ubuntu-postfix-queue-whatever.

    thnx a lot for turning me to the right direction.

    just for the records:

    I found out how the postfix-package got installed on my ubuntu. Seems like its prerequisite for the smartmontools-package which is a very important package.

    Looks like I need to find a way to install it without getting a unconfigured postfix delivered with it.

    Hi,

    You are not alone, take a look [SOLVED] Logwatch and zimbra

    I was looking to disable the ubuntu postfix service without luck.

    It seems that definitive solution is to configure you monitoring tool to use the Zimbra MTA.

    Regards.
