FAQ
Hi there,

I am migrating mailman from a freebsd server running sendmail to an
ubuntu server running postfix. Could somebody please send me a decent
link that explains the postfix/mailman configuration?

I am getting relaying denied messages on the postfix side.

Cheers,

Noah

    Outgoing or incoming?

    Is your sending IP in my_networks?

    For Mailman specific information see
    <http://www.list.org/mailman-install/node12.html>.

    For the rest see <http://www.postfix.org/documentation.html>.

    Mark,

    I am getting mail loops with postfix. here is my configuration. I dont
    have @domain.com @mail.domain.com configured in my /etc/postfix/virtual
    file. what do I do in the case of the configuration below?


    myorigin = /etc/mailname
    myhostname = domain.com
    mydomain = domain.com
    mydestination = $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain $mydomain

    root at domain:/etc/postfix# cat /etc/mailname
    domain.com

    # cat /etc/hosts
    127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain
    128.110.253.66 domain.com

    # hostname
    domain.com

    I am getting mail loops with postfix.

    Incoming or outgoing? Can you send mail from the box with the sendmail
    command?

    What specifically are the postfix log entries for the looping mail?
    here is my configuration. I dont
    have @domain.com @mail.domain.com configured in my /etc/postfix/virtual
    file. what do I do in the case of the configuration below?


    myorigin = /etc/mailname
    This setting is a domain name, not a file.
    myhostname = domain.com
    mydomain = domain.com
    mydestination = $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain $mydomain

    root at domain:/etc/postfix# cat /etc/mailname
    domain.com

    # cat /etc/hosts
    127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain
    128.110.253.66 domain.com

    # hostname
    domain.com

    Did you look at <http://www.list.org/mailman-install/node12.html> and
    the subordinate <http://www.list.org/mailman-install/node13.html>?

    That's what you need to do for Mailman/Postfix integration for
    automatic maintenance of list aliases. If you want to do aliases
    manually like sendmail, You don't need to do anything to a working
    Postfix config except maybe

    recipient_delimiter = +

    for Mailman's VERP like options.
