Post.Office : Introduction : Disabling Postfix Print send FAQs by e-mailask a question
Question:Post.Office was running nicely on Panther. Now, when I reboot, I see Postfix running instead of Post.Office. What happened?
Answer:Mac OS X Server 10.3 has a fail safe feature that restarts Postfix, independent of any system configuration. The best approach is to disable Posfix.

You can do this, as root, using the GUI:
In Finder, pull down the Go menu and choose "Go to Folder"
Type: /usr/libexec/postfix
Rename the file called "master" to "master.old".

Alternately, as administrator, in a Terminal Window:
Type:


sudo tcsh

cd /usr/libexec/postfix
mv master master.old

Once Postfix is disabled, Post.Office will start up correctly.



UPDATE (2004-10-08):

Another way to keep postfix from restarting is to comment out the following line from your /etc/watchdog.conf file:


postfix:respawn:/usr/libexec/postfix/master # Mail services - SMTP


This method is probably cleaner and should also allow Post.Office to start correctly.
