10.3: Enable the postfix Mail Transfer Agent
Authored by: burble on Mar 06, '04 12:23:44PM

In the version of main.cf that I have on my system apple have 'kindly' added a set of defaults at the bottom of the file. These over-write the 'inet_interfaces' and 'mynetworks_style' values and set them to prevent remote connections. It's worth checking thay if you set any variables that they're not reset within the file at a later point.

You can check the actual running config with sudo postconf -n, which is useful for debugging purposes. Also it's sometimes worthwhile doing a sudo postfix stop followed by a sudo postfix start rather than a sudo postfix reload. A reload doesn't always seem to fix everything.
