    OS X Server mail service giving me grief

    Hello all,

    My mail service is giving me grief today.

    I cam in this morning and went to show the kids how to create their account using the os x mail service, and then proceeded to delete my account to show them out it starts up when they start from fresh.

    I started mail client back up and found that the smtp service is not responding. Okay i thought. Just check the server and restart postfix. This made no difference. So i restarted the server. Still no difference. I have since re-enabled the smtp since it got disabled again (i don't know why) and i have tried the webmail system. I can log into the webmail system and send one but when i click check mail it never returns to me.

    The logs say this:

    Code:
    Nov 24 15:04:26 services postfix/smtp[1764]: 8864EC79E9: to=, relay=none, delay=1414, delays=1414/0/0/0, dsn=4.4.1, status=deferred (connect to 127.0.0.1[127.0.0.1]: Connection refused)
    I've no idea why this has happened as it has been ticking over nicely for a while. I suspect a dodgy postfix as it keeps having to reload postfix config but mine is a very simple set up where the server is localhost and sends out.

    Any ideas i could try?

    At the moment it is ticking over fine again. It is very strange in how it happens. I suspect that it could have something to do with mailbfr. I use this to backup the mail service as do quite a lot of other users. I'm not sure if there is an issue with the service restarting after it is stopped before backup is taken. I will post the results tomorrow.

    One thing i can't get working though is amavisd updates through a proxy
