    Hi,
    Two days ago my Posftfix broke for no apparent reason.
    It looks as though Postfix is failing to start because it is trying to use an IP address (I have no idea where Postfix is getting this IP address) which is not valid for my system.
    Here is a snippet from my mail log:
    <snip>May 29 03:03:48 bocacentral postfix/master[22144]: warning: /usr/lib/postfix/smtpd: bad command startup -- throttlingMay 29 03:03:51 bocacentral postfix[28179]: fatal: parameter inet_interfaces: no local interface found for 69.50.160.213May 29 03:04:22 bocacentral postfix[3657]: fatal: parameter inet_interfaces: no local interface found for 69.50.160.213May 29 03:26:27 bocacentral postfix[32672]: fatal: parameter inet_interfaces: no local interface found for 69.50.160.213May 29 03:31:01 bocacentral postfix[6140]: fatal: parameter inet_interfaces: no local interface found for 69.50.160.213</snip>
     
    Here are the results of ifconfig:

    Please let me know if there is anything further I can provide so that someone may help me fix this problem.
    Thanks!
