Ubuntu & Postfix

You're right, o well, I can't give up now.  Too much time spent trying
already.  The previous gentleman was a great help, it's that syntax that
I was looking for.  I have so far tested and yes it is running.  Now on
to Mailscanner, I'm afraid to ask a mailscanner question because you'll
probably forward me on to www.mailscanner.info
<http://www.mailscanner.info/> .  


To be honest I currently have a working mail gateway that runs dapper,
mailscanner, mailwatch.  It was done with a walkthrough and a lot of
fumbling around.  Postfix , to me anyhow, is an immense subject.  I just
bought the book but have not read yet.  What I am trying to do is
improve my understanding of how these things work.  Thanks, Tom.

I have a Dapper server that I did the LAMP setup on, then I installed
postfix and mailscanner.  What I'm trying to do is build an SMTP gateway
that receives mail, filters out spam and forwards on to my exchange
server.  I think postfix is up and running but how can I check to see if
it is?  Is there not a walkthrough somewhere of how to test postfix?
Also, how do I see what ports are listening on my Dapper box, and could
I telnet into port 25 and test that way?

If you're not sure how to check Postfix's status, then you've probably
got quite a long ways to go to setup a mail gateway. ;-)

Have you checked http://www.postfix.org? There are a lot really
informative and helpful how-tos there for things like this.
