I am having an issue with this my postfix says this
"postfix: fatal: config variable inet_interfaces: host not found: localhost"  I have followed steps everywhere and i simply cant get my Trixbox to send voicemail to email, it is because my Postfix isnt set up correctly and i have tried everything. I would like to use gmail (smtp.gmail.com) as my email relay, there by making it so when a voicemail comes in the Trixbox makes the email and sends it off via Gmail relay. and yes i have read nearly everything on the net for 3 nights and am blue in the face with frusteration. i really just want my postfix to work, Note: even through webmin i get the error above. Can someone please help me with this asap.

Ok, i got the error fixed, now my POSTFIX server will send the Trixbox emails within the domain but ALL email in the Postfix Queue are for external destinations. Please help apparently my Postfix works but i need to have the relay work, and its not.

thanks

If you have changed you postfix configuration especially to do with routing and things are stuck in the queue you might need to RE-Queue teh messages
postsuper -r ALL
