No prob ....

CODE

#!/bin/sh

. /etc/rc.common

StartService ()
{
   if [ "${MAILSERVER:=-NO-}" = "-YES-" ]; then
           ConsoleMessage "Starting mail services"
           /usr/sbin/postfix start
   elif [ "${MAILSERVER:=-NO-}" = "-AUTOMATIC-" ]; then
           /usr/sbin/postfix-watch
   fi
}

StopService ()
{
       ConsoleMessage "Stopping Postfix mail services"
       /usr/sbin/postfix stop
       killall -1 postfix-watch 2> /dev/null
}

RestartService ()
{
   if [ "${MAILSERVER:=-NO-}" = "-YES-" ]; then
       ConsoleMessage "Reloading Postfix configuration"
       /usr/sbin/postfix reload
   else
       StopService
   fi
}

RunService "$1"



Just add those

if [ "${MAILSERVER:= ....

constructs to startservice() and restartservice() and you are ready to go. The Postfix folder must not be restored then.

Thank you so much for your time and effort. Xmail is working, but It is still rejecting the password. The following is what I have done, maybe you can see the errors

[Franklyn-D-Barnetts-Computer:/var/MailRoot/domains] franklyn% telnet fdbarnett.com 25

Trying 10.0.1.3...
Connected to fdbarnett.com.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 <1094578938.8513536@fdbarnett.com> [XMail 1.20 ESMTP Server] service ready; Tue, 7 Sep 2004 12:42:18 -0500
^C
Connection closed by foreign host.

[Franklyn-D-Barnetts-Computer:/var/MailRoot/bin] root# ./CtrlClnt -s fdbarnett.com -u franklyn -p xxxxx useradd fdbarnett.com info password U

Another thing where is the mail located when you receive it?

Thanks again.

Franklyn.

Which password is not accepted ?

I can't see any mistake in your input. Just make sure that your user's password is not encrypted when you pass it via command line.

Doing a
# cat MailRoot/mailusers.tab
... should list the new user's record with the encoded password.

Received mails are stored in MailRoot/domains/domainname/username/MailDir/new

Check your firewall settings. Also on your router.

No. Did you also open port 25 and 110 on your client machine ?

The problem is, that you are not reachable from the internet.
Telnetting to
fdbarnett.com 25
.. results in 'no connection' from my location. It might be reachable from your LAN, but not from the internet.

So please test your XMail machine's firewall and also your router's firewall if port 25 is open.

Port 25 is still not open. Try yourself:
http://dnstools.com/?checkp=on&portNum=25&...submit=Get+Info

BTW: The IP you use is in a private address range. This will cause trouble later on, when you want to receive mails from others.

Thanks.

No, obtain an address of another address range or use a router with NAT enabled. See http://www.jpsdomain.org/networking/nat.html for details.

I do not know what I did. I try so many things but it seem like port 25 is now open. I try it from the link you sent me.

Thank you so very much for all your help. I am a total novice with using Unix Just tried it because I am a Mac user.

Again many thanks.

Franklyn.
