postfix/master[1497]: fatal: bind port 25:
Authored by: rsnyder on May 10, '06 09:27:11AM
I followed the instructions, checked them at least twice, and now I keep getting the following in my /var/log/mail.log

May 10 12:02:37 RobertG5 postfix/master[1497]: fatal: bind port 25: Address already in use

What am I doing wrong?

Even before that, I never got the email that I tried to send by entering:

echo hello | mail your_email_address

And, yes, I did put in my real email address.

Before doing the hint, my Mail log was full of attempted sends of emails that kept trying to connect to an email server that I have not used for years. They all failed because I shut that mail server down.

Can't get this to work - anyone still commenting on this hint?
