    Default Postfix can't run

    After a system crash, my Zimbra don't work.
    When I run zmcontrol status:
    Host mail.mydomain.com
    antispam Running
    antivirus Running
    ldap Running
    logger Running
    mailbox Running
    Timeout after 180 seconds

    The last sentence won't show untile 180 seconds later.
    I think it shows one of service in mta has no response.
    so I run:
    postfix start

    The process has no result. it seems it never finished.

    Could someone tell me how to repair Postfix, or where is the error log.
    Thanks.

    It seems my Postfix is out of control.
    After run
    $ postfix stop
    postfix/postfix-script: stopping the Postfix mail system

    I run this:
    $ ps -aux | grep postfix

    result:

    Many many lines like above shows...
    I'm using Zimbra 4.5.4 RHEL4_64.
    It works well before the system crash.

    Yep, stop all of those.
    If you can't, then kill them with a sig 9

    Run fsck to see if you have any disk errors, and run the zmfixperms script located in the libexec dir

    If that doesn't fix it, run
    ./install.sh -s

    from the original install dir.

    Thanks your reply
    Before I follow you, I want to know if "zmfixperms" or "./install.sh -s" may destory the users mail account and mailbox?
    Because I have a lot of user using the mailserver.

    Nope.

    However, it's always a good idea to backup your data.
