Hi,

I like to make my webserver sending and receiving mails.
It's a root server with pre installed Ubuntu 8.04 LTS and I figured out that there's a server runing called Postfix.
When I've a look at my mail.log there're a lot of error messages:
Feb 27 07:19:20 webserver postfix/smtpd[14696]: warning: SASL: Connect to private/auth failed: Connection refused
Feb 27 07:19:20 webserver postfix/smtpd[14696]: fatal: no SASL authentication mechanisms
Feb 27 07:19:21 webserver postfix/master[4392]: warning: process /usr/lib/postfix/smtpd pid 14696 exit status 1
Feb 27 07:19:21 webserver postfix/master[4392]: warning: /usr/lib/postfix/smtpd: bad command startup -- throttling

Till now I haven't config anything for the mail server ...
How can I make it working?

Thanks

Andre
