Postfix Access Problem
Ran apt-get install postfix and then fetchmail. Fetchmail saw the
messages but could not post them (and, therefore did not purge them).
tail /var/log/syslog reported /etc/mail did not contain access.db. (The
relevant output is attached as post.txt.)
man access listed modifications to /etc/postfix/main.cf and
/etc/postfix/access which I made. These did not correct the problem. I
read all the files in /usr/share/postfix and found a reference to access
on line 201 of main.cf.dist with a reference to proxymap service but I
can't locate any such service.
At present I can only post to and read the list from iceape. I would
much prefer to use fetchmail and mutt. mutt would have allowed me to
insert the output of tail /var/log/syslog directly in this message. At
the moment mutt is apparently posting to nowhere - i.e. I have two
mailboxes and ask mutt to send a message from one to the other. mutt
say it has been sent but it never arrives.
I previously installed postfix on another computer and it worked like a
charm right out of the apt-get install.
Can anyone help me with this setup?
