    Hello:

    I finally got around to try postfix and did my first install. This is my
    system:

    CentOS-5.1-i386
    Postfix-2:2.3.3-2.i386

    NOTE: Postfix is downloaded and installed as part of O/S installation.

    I have minor changes to /etc/postfic/main.cf file as follows:

    inet_interfaces = all
    mydestination = $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain, localhost,$mydomain
    home_mailbox = Maildir/

    mydomain is 'tib.com'
    Host is 'mail.tib.com'

    After updating /etc/postfic/main.cf, I restarted postfix. Then I entered the
    following in a terminal to test postfix:

    -------------------------------------------------------------

    [root at mail ~]# telnet localhost smtp
    Trying 127.0.0.1...
    Connected to localhost.localdomain (127.0.0.1).
    Escape character is '^]'.
    220 mail.tib.com ESMTP Postfix
    ehlo host
    250-mail.tib.com
    250-PIPELINING
    250-SIZE 10240000
    250-VRFY
    250-ETRN
    250-ENHANCEDSTATUSCODES
    250-8BITMIME
    250 DSN
    mail from: kbajwa
    250 2.1.0 Ok
    rcpt to: kbajwa
    250 2.1.5 Ok
    data
    354 End data with <CR><LF>.<CR><LF>
    test
    421 4.4.2 mail.tib.com Error: timeout exceeded
    Connection closed by foreign host.
    [root at mail ~]#

    -------------------------------------------------------------

    As you will notice that after I enter 'test' and hit RTN, (after a long
    while) the system returns an error.

    This is my first postfix install so I have no idea what to do. FYI, the
    'mail.tib.com' server is not connected to the NET.

    Please direct me to the right direction.

    Thanks.

    Kirt
