 POSTFIX FATAL ERROR
Author: olyander 
Date:   08-09-08 19:06

I am rebooting my freebsd 6.1 server, and while grep -i fatal, i see in /var/log/messages:

Sep 7 22:13:10 uranus postfix/master[751]: fatal: 0.0.0.0:smtp: servname not supported for ai_socktype
Sep 8 10:06:47 uranus postfix/postqueue[1631]: fatal: Cannot flush mail queue - mail system is down
Sep 8 10:06:47 uranus postfix/postqueue[1632]: fatal: Cannot flush mail queue - mail system is down
Sep 8 11:29:52 uranus postfix/sendmail[2821]: fatal: usage: sendmail [options]
Sep 8 11:31:22 uranus postfix/master[2900]: fatal: 0.0.0.0:smtp: servname not supported for ai_socktype
Sep 8 11:35:45 uranus postfix/master[750]: fatal: 0.0.0.0:smtp: servname not supported for ai_socktype

a few entries grep'd entries above:

apparently the postqueue -f command yields this result.
as well as the servname not supported.

*** I am trying to clean up errors in messages, and any suggestions or info would be helpful. ***

ps ax shows:

bash-2.05b# ps ax|grep -i post
bash-2.05b# ps ax|grep -i send
bash-2.05b#

so send mail is not running, and postfix are not running. and i have sendmail enabled YES in rc.conf. I do not remember having to enable postfix entry in rc.conf. So that's probably not a concern.

I do not remember mucking with and /etc/mail, or /etc/postfix entries, as mail was working a week or so ago. i do not use mail other than for logging error messages or other things freebsd complains about ;)

thanks!!! OlyAnder
